SOURCE: 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.

I had the same problem. I had not had any problems for months and suddenly it wouldn't connect. I got on live chat w/ Sony (3 times) and finally got someone who seemed to know what they were doing. I have a Sony computer and they had to send me a link for a USB "patch". After downloading it, it fixed it.

*THIS IS FOR WINDOWS XP
First, go to device manager.
*Right click "my computer"
*select "Hardware" tab
*click on "device manager"
Then find the Walkman device on the list.
(it probably has a yellow "!" on it)
*Right click on "Walkman"
*click "update driver"
*click "advanced" option
*click "don't search I will choose the driver"
*select "USB mass storage device"
Hope that helps. It worked for me. ;)
