Re: error code: 82040008

Found a solution, I have the NW-A3000 also and have just had this problem.
solution do not use the connect player software, connect the player to your pc and open up as a removable disk, eg my computer/removable disk (f:). then drag and drop everything you see into a folder on your desk top, call it back up or some thing.
when you have done this enitialise the walkman disk in its own menu not using the connect software.
when it is done connect the player back up and drag the contents of your backup folder back to the player it may take a bit of time depending on how much music you have on it, make sure all the files are coppied back accross.
when it is done you should be able to use the player as normal again and update the files using the connect player software.

I plug NWA3000 into the computer to change music,

Try resetting the device it?s usually a small pinhole on the back or side of the device try holding that in for about 10 seconds or Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. then us: If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

Sony NW-A3000 mp3 player not registering on sonicstage

I was having these problems with mine.  The first thing I tried was the reset button, it's on the back of the mp3 player and you need a safety pin or a sewing needle to push it in. Then I tried a different USB port. Problem solved.

A3000 is still locked on the connection screen.

Pressing the reset button will not scrub your a3000 memory.
I have just tried it on mine to make sure I dont give you wrong info.
It just switches it off.

When i plug in usb cable for my a3000 player, the error code 82040008 appears,saying that a3000 canĀ“t work

All I can suggest is that you go to the sony website and first go to the download page for sonicstage cp. There is a link to update your firmware to 3.0. After doing that, if you arent already using it, download sonicstage cp from there and use that instead of connect or old sonicstage. That will probably sort you out.

Sony NW A3000 Walkman

Follow these steps- - Open the Sony Walkman from "My Computer". - Open the folder inside, then delete all the "DAT" files. - Open the second foler which is inside the first foler and delete all these files. - Close that and then open up "SonicStage" - Now delete all the files from your library, but, DO NOT delete them from your computer. - Now import all the songs again and it should pick up the device and start to transfer with no problems. I have done this with my Sony Walkman and it now works. If you experiance more problems contact me at

Ive searched but can't find anything on your error code. It seems Sony made a real lemon with this unit and made many thousands of people very unhappy. Most of the trouble seems to originate with the lousy software. The latest downloads can be found at Personally if I owned it and had the chance I'd be going for a more reliable unit. Check out this site for unhappy customers. BMW
