Question about Sony NWZ-E438F Digital Media Player

Album Art Only Sometimes Working

I got my Sony Walkman 8 GB MP3 Player (Model NWZ-E438F) and it's working great, except that the album graphics don't always appear. I've got every graphic in the folder of the album with the music files, and they're all .jpgs. Not only that, but on one of them, the first disc doesn't have the album art working, and the second disc is just fine. Both have use the same file, so that doesn't make much sense to me. All the album graphics work fine in Windows Media Player 11, so I don't know what's up.

This can occur when the meta-data for the song is not set up correctly. There is probably not anything you'll be able to without Specific knowledge. Windows Media Player 11 can pull album art from the internet. If the Song does not correctly point to that album for the art tag, it will probably not show up on your MP3 player correctly.

I add album artwork to Windows Media Player, but on my device, it usually doesn't process over or is stretched and blury, how would I fix this?


I have had a similar problem. This is exclusively when I have added my own album art or have album art that is not originally part of the track, or edited an album with additional tracks and tried to get the original art to tag with the new tracks. This problem has never occurred with album art that comes with WMP when I "search for album info".

I have yet to find a solution to it and SONY is no help at all.

NWZ-E348F Video Problem


Hello,

Assuming that you mean the NWZ-E438F model, when using the Media
Manager for Walkman, it has no conversion tool.

For transferring video the Content Transfer software should be used
and installed first.
All support for the NWZ-E438F, see next site:
http://support.sony-europe.com/dna/wm/nwvp/nwvp.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&m=NWZ-E438F
Under the bar Downloads, see the site to the conversion tool: http://support.sony-europe.com/dna/downloads/downloads.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&m=NWZ-E438F&f=Con_trans13

My nwz-e438f walkman wont charge anymore can anyone help me?


Hi hellohello21,
attach the supplied cable directly to the computer's USB port (don't use any other extension cord simultaneously). If that doesn't work, check if you've some problems with your USB driver.

Sony Walkman (NWZ-E438F) won't turn on


It sounds like you followed the directions, so the device may be defective.

Your laptop's USB port has enough power to use other similar devices? If so, I'd take it back for an exchange.

By the way, it's a great device, so don't give up yet!

No album art displayed on certain albums.


I have the exact same problem with a 16GB (NWZ-S545) and using Windows Media Player 11. I've tried deleting the songs off the player, manually adding album art for the songs and putting them back on but it still will not display album art for certain albums. There is a folder on the walkman (My Computer\WALKMAN\Storage Media\Albums) that contains all of the album covers even some of the ones that do not display. I'm thinking that something goes wrong when you first transfer the music and then it never can be corrected. Possibly formatting the player and adding everything back in will fix the problem but that is something I want to avoid if at all possible. Let me know if you figure anything out. Thanks.
