Re: Sony HD5 problem

I'm afraid I have some bad news for you I think, I had the exact same problem and i took it in to get looked at by a sony autohised repairer and they quote me $488 to fix it they say it needs a new hard drive.

You can get it checked out I wasted $50 just for them to look at.

Strange question, but the USB port on my NW-HD5


Do not feel like it is a stupid or dumb question, because by asking, we all learn.

Here s a picture of how the male and female USB should look like.

This is what the male USB should look like:318bb1f.jpg

This is what the female USB should look like:

The male plugs into the female. Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

How to replace backup of OMGAUDIO file

Sounds like a sound issue. i would send it back to SONY and demand that they either, give you a full written explanation of how to fix, or fix it themselves. (they wouldn't be bothered to write it out...)

I have Sony NW HD5 MP3, had to replace hard drive in my laptop.

SONY Walkman MP3 players are incapable to transfer from the player to PC. It's a copyright thing. since your hard drive was replaced, your PC is no longer the same one that the player originally had tracks transferred from (according the the MP3 player).  So, ultimately, those tracks will remain on the player until you remove them, they cannot be transferred back to a PC. I understand the annoyance, it's a pointless function, but for some reason, it has importance to SONY.

Connecting to PC

I'm sure as a new buyer, the last owner did not tell you this. This is what the player does. there will not be full, white battery until you remove the USB, usually, i leave my player on for about 2 hours to be sure. the 'Connecting to PC' screen is what the standard screen is during USB connection to the PC is. Once you remove the connection (remove the USB from the PC for the player) it will jump to a new screen. 'Creating Database'. Don't worry, your player is not frozen, it's standard.
