    i have a sony network walkman NW-E107. I can transfer all my music but it will only play half and not all of my music. The ones that dont play says CANNOT PLAY. I have the software cd it came with but it does the same thing. I wasted countless hours trying to download other software and I just might buy a new one. Is there something you can do to help me save some money?

The songs are in the wrong format.

The format of the songs are wrong in one way or another. Each Mp3 player has a product spec sheet that lists which type of music file it is compatible with (Mp3, WMA, WAV, AAC, etc). You can't play iTunes songs, which are AAC format, on a player that only accepts Mp3 or WMA format.

The second formatting issue has to do with the DRM license on the songs you have downloaded. Right click a song that gave you an error, click on "Properties," and click on the "License," "Media Usage Rights," or "Digital Rights Mgmt" tab (wording varies by configuration). Not every song allows unlimited or even one-time transfer to a "portable device" (code word for "Mp3 player" in this case). Also, some songs are fixed-term - they expire after a while - sometimes in as little as 24 hours.

To get around this, convert every song to Mp3 format. Either that, or upgrade your music service subscription to the highest pkg they have available and never cancel (Napster's basic music svc, for instance, does not let you transfer to an Mp3 player, but their "Napster To Go" upgrade does allow transfer).

Many WMA's are DRM-protected - the DRM-protected tracks that you have loaded may not have transfer rights, even though they will play fine on a computer. The best bet is to download only songs that are in mp3 format. Another option, which is illegal, is to buy a DRM-stripper and strip your WMA's of the DRM-protection - but, it is illegal, costly, and time-consuming.

Tracks played in wrong order



The Sony NWZ-S616F (4 GB) sometimes plays the musical tracks out of sequence. To check if the tracks are being played correctly, press the down arrow key ↓ at any time until the name of the book or music is selected. Then press the ► button and the tracks will show up. If they are in wrong order, select track 1 and press ►.

I found down loading music very easy.
The playing of the track was the problem, the track was mp3 and not protected but after 10--12 secs the player stopped playing the track. Have you had this problem?

Try deleting all tracks and load a non-protected (Non DRM) track.

Not all Philips players will play DRM protected tracks.

Order of track play


You have to re number or rename the mp3 tracks on your pc before you load them to your player, for example track1, track2 or queentrack1, queentrack2 and so on.
