Question about Sony NWZ-S615F Walkman Video MP3 Player

2 Answers

NWZ615FBlk problem I have a Sony NWZ 615F Blk MP3 player. I loaded songs into the music folder and had to reset the player. When I went back to reload the songs, of course they were not there. But I couldn't add any songs either due to it saying it was full. But nothing is on the MP3 Player. The storage is saying 1.71 GB. How do I clear the memory/storage so I can add songs back on to the player?

    When I right click, there is no option to format. I attempted that yesterday.

    Ok I found the format button under settings. I clicked on format, and the MP3 player was formatted, BUT the media storage is still saying its used 1.71 GB of storage.

Ok, here is the manual
Follow page 87-88 and do reset to factory settings then format again, just in case. And check if it works.
Probably it wont.
Then follow procedure at page 101 and do firmaware upgrade.
If firmware upgrade does not work, then, as already sayd the player memory can be faulty.

regards

I lost my Sony Walkman MP3 Player NWZ-S61setup disc.


you dont need any software to load the music to it just use these steps
**Drag and Drop**
Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder, available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.
--**Windows Media Player**--
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.

if you need a driver for your device the goto the sony website and get on from the support/download section there

Mp3


if it doesn't sync, don't worry just open the folder where the music files are stored on your computer, connect your Sony Walkman to your computer and highlight the music files you want to add to the Walkman and select (copy these files) a windows will open for you to select the place you want to copy to, select your mp3 player and click on copy to copy the selected music to your Walkman

NOTE: if you Sony Walkman has a specific folder for music files, you need to move the songs you copied from your hard drive's music folder to the music folder on your mp3 player for the player to recognize the songs in order to play.

Sony's are especially sensitive to certain characters - it is possible that there is a character in the band/song name that is causing the defect - this is unlikely, since you say that it's occurring on all songs. Try resetting the language back to English in the Sony menu just to be sure. 
Another possibility is that the ID3 tag is in a version that is not supported by the player. Unfortunately, I went through all of the product documentation, and it doesn't say which ID3 tag versions it is compatible with.  This is time-consuming, but you could downgrade your ID3 tag editor, delete all songs off your player, and then reload them to be sure. 
Good luck!

 “I can’t load any more songs into my mp3 player” or “An incorrect number of songs show up.” (MEMORY/FORMATTING ISSUE)
Sometimes, you can’t load any more songs into your player because, well, there just isn’t any more space left on your player.  Mp3 player product documentation does not actually list the actual amount of memory that you can use in your player, and it doesn’t list the actual number of songs that you can realistically fit on your player.  Every mp3 player needs a certain amount of memory space to operate and firmware upgrades decrease this available space – so, your 2GB mp3 player actually contains only 1.7 or 1.8 GB for music and other media files.  The mp3 player that says “can hold up to 1000 songs” may only hold 400 songs – the product documentation assumes that you are loading a 1-minute song in the lowest possible quality format – not very realistic.  A single 30-minute audiobook, speaker file, or video can seriously bring this number down.
Other times, however, you are experiencing a formatting issue or memory corruption.  If you plug your mp3 player into a computer that has an NTFS file system, and then plug it into a computer that has a FAT32 file system, you may experience this formatting issue (file system/formatting issue).  Similarly, this will happen if you plug an mp3 player into a computer running Windows Vista, and then plug it into a computer running Windows XP (operating system/formatting issue).  Or, if you plug your computer into a PC, and then into a MAC (PC or system/formatting issue).  Or, if you plug it into a computer with Windows Media Player 10, and then into a computer running Windows Media Player 11 (software/formatting issue).
Apparently, if you add too many folders, especially via Playlist, via Windows Media Player, the Mp3 player's file system will become unstable - it can only handle a certain number of additional folders. To resolve the issue:
1. Connect the player to the PC using the USB cable.
2. Open Windows Media Player.
3. Go to the Sync or Devices tab and delete all content from the player.
4. Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
5. Select the Devices tab, highlight the ILO or Siren player and click on Properties.
6. Uncheck the box "Create Folder Hierarchy on Device"
Now, when music is transferred, it will be placed in the root directory of the flash memory disregarding the folder structure and allowing all tracks to be seen.

This procedure was designed for Siren Mp3 players, but is applicable to many other Mp3 players. It is not a guaranteed fix for every Mp3 player and every error of this type, but it is certainly not a widely known or reported solution.

Before proceeding with a format or reformat of your mp3 player, check with the manufacturer first.  On many players, a format or reformat along the lines suggested here will override your mp3 player’s native formatting and render your player unusable.  Transcend’s T.Sonic player is especially susceptible to this problem, and should never be formatted.  Also, the instructions below are for Windows-based PCs, not for Macintosh.  There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in some cases by updating the player's firmware or reloading the firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.
WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
