Sounds like the firmware has corrupted. Install and run the Firmware Update software from the product CD.

Select the repair option and follow the on-screen prompts. This will re-load the firmware and should get your player working again.

Please try these steps:
You don't need any driver software, if your pc has windows xp sp2 or later and Windows Media Player 11.
1. Connect the player to the computer.
2. From the computer, select start - Control Panel - Performance and Maintenance - System. "System Properties" is displayed.
3. Select Hardware tab, and open Device manager.
4. Open Universal Serial Bus controllers, and select USB Mass Storage Device or WALKMAN NWZ-XXXXX.
5. Select Action - Update Driver ... from the menu bar. "Welcome to the Hardware Update Wizard" is displayed.
6. A dialog on Windows Update connection will be displayed. Select No, not this time., followed by Next.
7. Select Install from a list or specific location [Advanced], followed by Next for the hardware install method.
8. Select Don't search. I will choose the driver to install., followed by Next for the search and install option.
9. Check Show compatible hardware, and then select MTP Device* in the model list, followed by Next. The device driver is installed.
10. "Completing the Hardware Update Wizard" message is displayed, and confirm "MTP Device" message. Click Finish.

Good luck!

The device can not be detected in my computer


Hi there.... You can try other computer if they can detect the Sony Walkman that you have, if not being detected, have the device physically check.... if being detected by other computer, try updating the driver or software for that Sony device..

Sony nwz-b142 doesn't display in my computer. I already tried installing the device in the control panel and it says device works properly and yet it doesn't display in my computer


This advice could help you if your player works properly and the problem is in your pc only:
At first you should be sure that your USB cable can work.
Then let's see the PC.
You don't need any driver software, if your pc has windows xp sp2 or later and Windows Media Player 11.
If you have problem with your device follow this steps:
1. Connect the player to the computer.
2. From the computer, select start - Control Panel - Performance and Maintenance - System. "System Properties" is displayed.
3. Select Hardware tab, and open Device manager.
4. Open Universal Serial Bus controllers, and select USB Mass Storage Device or WALKMAN NWZ-XXXXX.
5. Select Action - Update Driver ... from the menu bar. "Welcome to the Hardware Update Wizard" is displayed.
6. A dialog on Windows Update connection will be displayed. Select No, not this time., followed by Next.
7. Select Install from a list or specific location [Advanced], followed by Next for the hardware install method.
8. Select Don't search. I will choose the driver to install., followed by Next for the search and install option.
9. Check Show compatible hardware, and then select MTP Device* in the model list, followed by Next. The device driver is installed.
10. "Completing the Hardware Update Wizard" message is displayed, and confirm "MTP Device" message. Click Finish.

Good luck!

I erased all the songs from this mp3 play to put new ones on after erasing the songs the play won't be picked up by pc and am unable to put new songs onto mp3 plaey the players just displays please wait...


yes...unplug from pc shut mp3 off for a minute...plug it to pc (did it come on turn it on)...please get into the habit of disconnecting any usb connection with the safety disconnect...(green icon in task bar when usb is connected)...since you already deleted all files (format it now) start fresh...now you are able to put your songs on it...but to disconnect do not....do not just unplug the usb

I have 8 gp pen dirver it name was sandisk and also 2 gp pen dirver it name was transcend. the both are not display in my computer and how to display the pendirver.... help me....


Hi there !!!

I can understand the issue...

When you say both the device is not getting in the computer. Then i'd say either you don't have the version of USB 2.0 or USB driver is not installed. Please check it out...

You can try one more option for SANSA..

Check the settings of SANSA, make sure it should be in MTP mode..

1. On your Sansa player, Go to Settings, switch the USB mode to MTP
2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC..

Check on the system tray like an icon look like an GREEN ARROW mark. Right click on it and update the MTP drivers and disconnect the device..

Restart the computer and now connect the device..Try and let me know whats happening..
