Update firmware
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware.
Call Sony

Try pushing the reset button (located next to where you connect the USB) with a small pin or paper clip. If this doesn't work you might have to contact Sony.

Good Luck.

My NW-A1000 also threw up the same problem when I left my laptop and it went into sleep mode.

Pressing the reset button with the end of a paper clip did cure the problem with no loss of music.

Hope this helps others.

Maybe the mp3 player is dead.. but.. you should install the firmware update for it.. because maybe the mp3 player ROM has a defect..
