Question about Sony NWZ-B103FBLK MP3 Player
Whenever I tried turning on the mp3 player it just says BOOT ERROR - SHUTTING DOWN! It looks normally when plugged to PC as it says USB CONNECT! What I don't understand is that it cannot be opened as it says to INSERT A DISK INTO DRIVE E! I went to a computer shops but they couldn't fix it saying maybe it's a virus! I can't even format the device!!
PLEASE HELP ME!!!
I bought a NWD-B103F sony mp3 player last year. The mp3 player was working just fine till the same problem as discussed had popped out recent after 2 weeks i had left it untouched. Even I had followed the solutions given, I updated the firmware to version 1.2, I even tried the "pressing play button while inserting the player to USB port" method, the problem remained. I sent the mp3 player to the nearest sony service centre (still under warranty), they fixed it in one day and contacted me to get back the mp3. For my disappointment, I brought the player home and tried it out, the problem still unsolved. So, I'd like to know is there any other useful solutions because all other solutions given I had attempted resulted failure. Thanks for all the concern!

Hey, guys. I just fixed this problem. My mp3 cant be detected at first too. You have to hold the play button when you connected the computer. Then the computer will detected. After it be detected, update the firmware. It 100% works. and fu*k sony.

Now I have the solution, Go the Sony shop and take the new Walkman and connect it to your laptop. The software that is there make a copy and then connect it to your set and download it there . Now once you switch on your set the problem is gone

My NWD-B105F device goes immediately to HOLD and then power off. It's well as flash memory but not as mp3 player.

I had NWZ-B105F. Tried everything and it was still giving me "Booot error". Returned it to the store. I like all the features and the sound quality but maybe if enough people return their players, Sony will release a good fimware update that works! BTW my new Sony player works faster, more responsive, than the old one..

I've tried the firmware update but he PC isn't recognise the deivce + the USB connect is perminatly on with battery charging going on. Tried in two other PCs but to no avail. There is a reset button to press which does diddle squat. Had a similar problem on a warfdale (spelling) mp3 player also. They shouldn't be messing up only 3 months of ownership. Don't supose there are any button presses or things that can be done to reset to factory default/

Related to the problem posted by GIN_BAYABAS, I had the same problem....
To fix it I just delete (through the windows explorer) a WMA file I had copied to my MP3 player. After disconnect it from the PC occured a "BOOT ERROR". I pressed the RESET button and the MP3 player became OK/normal.
I don't know whether it was a mere coincidence but it worked!
ps: I didn't copy the same WMA file again to prove this theory....I am not crazy! hehehehehe
I hope it works for all!
ps2. Sorry my english....I am from Brazil.

SOURCE: BOOT ERROR
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.
