What the issue sounds like is your usb cable is bad. If your walkman works fine but your computer will not charge it then try using a different cable to plug it into a computer.

CAN I CHANGE THE SETTINGS FOR HOW IT DOCKS I WANT TO PLUG INTO MY CAR STEREO USB TO PLAY, BUT UNABLE TO AS IT DOCKS


Hi,

The USB cable supplied with the Walkman Player is for connecting it to the Computer. Once you connect the Walkman Player to the Computer, it will detect it as an MTP device.
For connecting the Player to a Car Audio System, it should detect it as an MTP Device. The operations by connecting the USB of the Player to the Car Audio System is not guaranteed by Sony.
However, you can connect the Headphone Out of the Walkman to the AUX Input jack on the Car audio system (if available).

Thanks for using FixYa

Its a sony walkman NWZ-E344 mp3 when I try to charge it,'connected USB (MTP) the timer and alarm will be invalid' shows up.Eventhough I charge it like three hours it does not charge.


First unplug device from the computer. Go to Device Manager and look for NWz-E344. It may be under Portable Devices or under disk drives. It depends on your OS. When you find it, right click and select Uninstall. After it uninstalls, connect the player to the computer. The computer should run the plug-and-play add hardware to re-add the device.

Hello, I have a sony NWZ-E438F (8GB), it works fine with other 3 computers, but when I connect it to my dell latitude E6400 win XP it isn´t recognized as an plug and play device in the menu My...


Hi There !!!

I can understand your issue. When you say the device is not getting detected as Plug & Play. Then i would say the device driver needs to be installed for the sony walkman series.

Check whether did you get any CD that came along with the device.
If yes please insert it and install the driver for it.
Restart the computer and plug the device.
Now that will take you to the setup and follow the on screen instruction.
Now you will be offset.

Please revert if you have any clarifications.

step4: check USB mass storage device.

Mp3 will not connect with my computer


I'm pretty sure I fixed a similar problem. Go to your device manager on your PC and uninstall the walkman driver. After this is complete just plug the walkman back into you Pc and the plug and play will download the driver again. This worked for me. My operating system is Windows vista.

My Walkman won't charge


What I did when I got this error was to push the reset button on the bottom of the player itself... Mine rebooted and took a charge from the computer. Hope this all works for you.

Starts up to "Walkman" Screen then turns off


(Re)installed the 1.1 firmware update, and clicked the "format data area" box. It works fine however it of course deleted all my mp3s. I still don't know why it broke down but I figure it just doesn't work well when it shuts down suddenly due to "low battery".
