Question about Sony NWZ-E436F MP3 Player

Can't disconnect MP3 from Mac

I have the exact same problem. Apple says it's because the Mac is still trying to read the device. Not compatible and told me to just get an Ipod. When I do disconnect the Sony, sometimes it wipes out my entire library of songs already on the device. I'm to the point that I won't even connect it to my mac because I am afraid of losing all my songs. Any advice would be appreciated.

Why can't i find it on my laptop?

Plug your mp3 and try to find it on your Finder. Format the mp3 to FAT, so Mac OS can read and write on your mp3 hard drive.

Hi Colombianamo,

If you're trying to connect your device to your system, please be advised that Philips GoGear HDD6330 MP3 Player is not compatible with Mac systems. The disk utility will not see it as a mountable driver.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Your was Creative brought with its own software, wasn't it? Well, this software isn't compatible with Mac. However, you can use a free app so you can still use your creative.

Apple computer compatable

No it's not.
Ativa's web page (here) does not offer a driver for Mac.

"What operating system does this device support?
This device support Windows 98se, ME, 2000, and XP. It is not compatible with Mac systems."

Sorry, but you might have to look for an appropriate AirPort card.

The HDD1830 is not Mac compatible. The database file has probably been deleted or corrupted. The player doesn't scan the hard disk on start-up, it only read the database file. Anything it doesn't read from the database file is ignored.

You will need to restore the player with the Philips Device Manager, and re-load your tracks.

I dont know how to download songs on to my model SA2628/37 philips 2 gb mp3 player to my apple mac computer

Not MAC compatible - you can try plugging the player in, and see if it shows up as "internal," but it's not guaranteed to work, and the software is definitely NOT compatible.

Not vista compatible, not Mac compatible

Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

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.
