Question about Sony Network Walkman NW-A3000 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sony Vaio and SonicStage

I am using SonicStage 2.1. I was using just last week. I had to reinstall Windows XP and now the program won't recognize my device. It just sits there as if it is still waiting for me to plug it in. The funny thing is is that my computer can read it as a removable device on the H: drive. I can open it and look in all the folders so I know the USB function works.

I don't want to install the newer programs because I would have to delete all my music and I'm not doing that.

Thanks for the help.

I have a sony network walkman nw-e55. the problem is that windows 7 doesn't recognize the device and i can't transfer music to it. install sonic stage didn't solve it and i can't find a driver that works....


The NW-E55 Walkman Player is compatible only with the SonicStage Software for transferring the songs. Unfortunately, the Software is not compatible with the Windows 7 OS and won't be able to transfer the songs from the Windows 7 OS using the SonicStage Software. Only option to transfer the songs to the Player using the Software is via Windows XP or Vista. However. once you install the Software and transfer the songs, you've to use the same computer to transfer or delete the songs again.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

Sony NW-A3000 mp3 player not registering on sonicstage

I was having these problems with mine.  The first thing I tried was the reset button, it's on the back of the mp3 player and you need a safety pin or a sewing needle to push it in. Then I tried a different USB port. Problem solved.

not a solution, but have since found that using all the same hardware I can connect successfully to other pc's that have sonicstage installed. Sony suggested replacing the cable.
