I had the same problem...go onto the sony website, search for ur model and select the Firmware Upgrade. if this doesnt work then download the manual where in the Troubleshooting section it gives you numerous methods for fixing the Format Error...Hope it works...

Maybe you need a firmware upgrade. Check your particular models brand and visit their site to get a firmware upgrade. Or you maybe just need to reformat it by plugging it to your computer and then reformat the device. You need to add some more details of your product to get the best response for your problem... have a Nice Day!

What does audio file format error means

Hi nancy c...
Your player is telling you that you have the wrong format to play songs on will have to change your file formats of your songs to play on your player.
Here are the formats that your player will play:
Video: AVI (MPEG-4 / XviD)
Photo: JPG, BMP, GIF
You can download a free format converter at this webpage:
Check the specs for your player on this webpage...

Wrong format error msg

If they're not mp3 files then it's probably not supported by that mp3 player and that why you get this message.
Try converting them to mp3s on the computer before you put them on it.

Format error

It's an unsupported file format. Are you trying to play files that were ripped in I-tunes? I-tunes does not make mp3s, it makes m4a files, which are not supported. Make sure the files you put on this player are mp3 files. You can also use wma files, but you will probably need to use Windows Media Player to transfer those files.

Let me know how you get on & shout if you need more help!

nwe003f is not a standard mp3 player. It plays mp3 files, but firstly they must be converted to another format (omg). I think that this is not typical conversion- some tags are added and that's why player plays mp3 files and shows the bitrate on screen but those mp3s are not mp3s :)
Download sonic stage and the problem will b solved. Best wishes in 2k8 year :)

Won't format and won't play mp3

try loading files on different bit rates and see what bitrate your player can play. some player wont play files that are directly copied to the player, it needs a certain software to encode it to its standard format. sony walkman is an example, it has its own software to encode files from mp3 to its own supported format.
