Re: i pod recovery

What's a Sony iPod? iPod's are made by Apple! Anyway, you could try resetting the device, I'm not actually too sure what the problem is because I don't really know which device you are using. Try resetting or re-installing the software.

Please rate if at all useful, thanks!

I have WMA files on my iPOD 4gb black but I can't play them on iPOD earphone but can on computer.?.

The WMA files will not play on your Ipod because I pods only play the AAC format for songs.
The songs you have has to be converted to AAC files to play on your Ipod...
You will also need to have I Tunes on your computer to download the songs to your I pod once you have converted your songs to the AAC format.
I believe I Tunes will convert the songs to AAC format for you, but just in case it does not:
You can get a free song/video converter from the following website:

Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Deleted songs from sansa e260 still show up on the menu

Turn the player off.

Push the HOLD button to the locked position.

Press and hold the RECORD button while connecting to PC.

Let go of RECORD button when you see Welcome to Recovery Mode on the player's LCD.

You are now connected in, you guessed it, Recovery Mode. Open My Computer and you will find a new removable flash drive labeled, 16MB-FORMAT.


Open the 16MB-FORMAT volume in My Computer and create a new folder on the drive in its root directory. Name the folder sansa.fmt, use the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the system tray, and disconnect the player from the PC. The player should now format itself. If all goes well the format will be successful. If not, I suspect you might have a defective internal memory module. If it is defective, you can replace it with one from another v1 or Rhapsody model unit. You can often find defective players on eBay for parts. The memory module from the e250, e260, e270, or e280 will work just so long as its from a v1 or R model.

No memory availability is appearing .it's showing 0kb memory

I using T sonic 840.
I found the reason for this.

I think you used transferred the songs/ videos from the computer, which had Windows operating system.

Windows has the high possibility to attack your T sonic by means of Viruses and worms.

So, first take a back up of your songs/videos/photos/text documents.
then format it.

Now download the songs/videos/photos/text documents. and before removing your device.
Scan for virus. If you find any virus fix that virus.

Now you cannot see the 0kb free space.

Check the fomat of the song you are trying to play.

Check what are all the formats it can play.

And try playing them using the player compatible file formats.

Good Luck.

Try formatting the device again using its built-in formatting features.

(WARNING: There is no way you can retrieve your data. Since it has already been formatted, it's assumed that you have backup.)

In your Sony NW-E405 MP3 Player:
1. Press and hold the SEARCH/ MENU button
2. Go to ADVANCED MENU (press the Play/ Stop button)
3. Select FORMAT (press Play/ Stop button)
4. From the opt "Format OK?" select OK (press the Play/ Stop button)
5. Once finished, you can Cancel out.

After these steps, your device should screen out "No Data." From there, you can re-transfer your files.

NO DATA:but i have so many songs on there ?

Transfer songs to your player only with SonicStage. If you did with other software, format the player from the menu and transfer songs from SonicStage. Sonicstage can be downloaded here under SonicStage. Make sure you install the security update after installing the software...
