Found the problem, well sorta. my NWZB105F wont show in my computer, and the firmware updater wont find it either. iv always had to use winamp to transfer files, no drag and drop for me. but back to the problem, all i did to fix it was delete all files from it using winamp. so im guessing it was a corrupt file.

NWZ-B105F - unit is fully charged per the display. I go to power on the player and nothing. I've tried he reset button and still nothing. Any suggestions? Thanks,

Make sure that HOLD function isn't on.

Connect it to the computer and reset it again, leaving it connected.

Check the Sony Support Web site to see if there are any available firmware updates for your model.

If possible, instead of connecting the USB cable to the computer, connect it to a USB AC adapter (if available) and try to charge it.

Third Step: Copy your music into the Music folder.

The Sony NWZ B105F Music player

download the nwd-b105 firmware 1.1 (google it) and once you have it connect your mp3 player to an usb port of your pc. run the firmware file you downloaded and check the "delete files" option and run the firmware. you will lose all your files but your mp3 should be functional again. remember that when you do a firmware update you must keep your mp3 connected to the pc, also a if there is for some reason a power failure you may brick your mp3 player. my mp3 player had teh same problem as yours and i fixed it this way. the reason this happens is that sometimes the antivirus delete some system files from your mp3 and thus it cant access its database causing an error and shutting down the mp3 unit. hope this helps!!

Sony NWZ-B105F - trouble shooting

My Sony NWZ-103F, same as the 105F, was doing the same thing “CREATING DATABASE” and then the message “BOOT ERROR, SHUTTING DOWN”. The PC did not recognize the player plugged into the USB port except in the device manager field. I tried all of the other solutions to no avail. This is what fixed it for me.
2. Select SYSTEM
5. Scroll to the bottom of the Manager window and you should see WALKMAN
6. Right click on WALKMAN and select UPDATE DRIVER
7. Choose NO on the first page of the HARDWARE UPDATE WIZARD, Next
10. Click on USB DEVICE rather than MTP and let the PC update the driver
11. At this point I rebooted the pc…..don’t know if that was needed, but I won’t hurt.
12. Go to the Sony website and get the latest firmware (1.2) and save it to you desktop
13. Here is the link for the 103F:
14. Select the format option in the update window when you run it.

That made the MP3 player functional but Windows Media Player 10 still did not see it, so I upgraded to WMP 11 and that did it………all is good!
Hope this works for you……good luck.
