This seems to be an error message when the database of the SonicStage Software has been changed. I suggest you to backup all the Songs in the Player and update the Software. Make sure that the SonicStage Backup Tool is used for creating a backup disc.
Then, uninstall the SonicStage Software and install the latest version of the SonicStage Software(ver 4.3). Before installing the Software install the SonicStage Security update and then the SonicStage Software version 4.3 for Windows Vista.
After installing the Software the issue will get resolved.
Have you connected the player to your PC in Sonic Stage to see if
anything is loaded on to it? Once initialized, the hard drive is empty.
Transfer just one track and it should try to rebuild the database. format the hard disc, it''s an option within the menu Once you have done that, remove all the songs from Sonicstage CP. Get
rid of EVERYTHING. Reimport all the songs to Sonicstage again and try
to sync the NWA unit.
I don't know if this will help but have you tried Sony's website? There is a security update for Sonic Stage 4.3 that they say must be installed in order to make the program run properly. Go to Sony USA and type in minidisc players in the search window. Then click on the link for minidisc players. When that window opens type in your model number and the page displaying that particular model should open. There you should find the latest software updates. I downloaded Sonic Stage 4.3 along with all of the needed updates from Sony's site and it works just fine for me. You may have to uninstall your current software and reinstall it after installing the security update as the installation instructions on the website said that the installation must be done in that order or the Sonic Stage software may not work properly. Sony also offers email tech support. Good luck.
I hade just that prob. "format error" used to display. I did this:
1. dwl sonicStage (free)
2.- in the walkman went to menu/initialize/format
then displayed a confirmation screen, I confirmed
it displayed "formating...... COMPLETE"
3.- THEN plugged into the PC and transfered songs with Sonic
and it worked!
I have this problem too. Found that if you go to the folder that has the music file in it, right click on each problem file and select 'open with -> " and choose Sonic stage, then it will import the file. Next problem may be that it imports it with 'unknown' as the file name but if you then right click on the file within SonicStage and select 'Get CD info' it will find it. Tedious if you have several dozen/hundred files that won't import I'm afraid...
If you haven't installed the latest version of SonicStage - v4.3, uninstall your version and install it from here:
If it still continues to lock up, I think that it's an issue with the database on the device. The easiest way to remedy this would be to initialise the disk and copy your music over again.
To reinitialise the disk, go to the home menu, choose settings in the bottom left, go up once to "Initialize Disk" and select it, then select yes to proceed.
