There's a setting you can change to keep it from automatically doing this.
It'll be on your computer rather than the player, in the preferences section of whichever media player you use. Just change it from "transfer files automatically" to "ask me what to do" (or something similar - the language they use varies a bit) in the section for how to handle files when you plug in your player.

How can you listen to music


First, you will have to transfer the music to the mp3 player. You can transfer music and pictures to your player using Windows Media Player. YOu can download it from here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/windows-media-player

Once you have installed WMP, reboot and plug your mp3 player. By default, Windows Media Player automatically loads all the music and picture files stored in your My Music and My Pictures folders into the library. If you add new files to these folders, they will also be automatically added to the library. Then you will have to synchronize your mp3s player with WMP.
You can sync your music and pictures to your player using Windows Media Player. Simply connect your player to your computer using the supplied USB cable, set up sync, and you will be ready to sync your media library to the player. When you connect your player to the computer for the first time, Windows Media Player automatically selects the sync method (automatic or manual) that works best for your player. Automatic: If your player has sufficient storage space (at least 4GB of free space) and your entire media library can fit on your player, your entire media library will be automatically copied to your player as soon as you connect it to your computer. Manual: If your entire media library cannot fit on the player, then you will be prompted to manually select specific files or playlists that you want to transfer to your player.
Once you have transfer the music you want-unplug the player from the computer and that's it. If you have more doubts, you can download the manual from here:

How do you transfer music from the computer to my Mp3 player?


PLUG AIGO INTO USB. WHEN PC RECOGNISES IT SELECT START/MY COMPUTER/ DRIVE F (OR WHATEVER IT HAS CHOSEN).
THEN SELECT THE MUSIC FILES YOU WANT TO TRANSFER (THEY MUST BE MP3 FORMAT) THEN SELECT COPY TO DRIVE F FOR EXAMPLE AND THEY WILL TRANSFER OVER.

I dont know how to set up my walkman to put anything in it?


I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in transferring files to the Walkman Player. You can use the Windows Explorer to transfer files (music, images and videos) to the Walkman layer. Once you connect the Walkman Player to the Computer, it will display as an additional storage media under My Computer. Please follow the below steps to access the Walkman Player using Windows Explorer.
  • Click Start and then click My Computer .
  • In the My Computer window, under Other , double click the icon for your portable player.
  • In the My Computer\[Name of your portable player] window, double click Storage Media .
  1. Now, drag and drop the music files or folders into the MUSIC folder.
  2. Drag and drop video files or folders into the VIDEO folder.
  3. Drag and drop picture/image files or folders into the PICTURE or DCIM folder.
Now, the only thing you want to make sure is that you're transferring compatible files to the player to use in it. The video files should meet the following requirements.

MP3 is fine for audio and for images, jpeg would be good.
I hope the information helpful, if you require any additional help, please let me know.
