Sony walkman NWZ-S754 Recharge is through computer - but can I recharge it via mains or in car.


Yes you can charge your player through main. All you need is a converter which connects to the usb cable to the plug. They are available in the market so you will need to look for it. Or you may find it at any electronic store.

Hi,

Try the possible steps given below and check if it helps.
Remove all the connected USB devices including the Walkman Player.
Reboot the Computer and once it starts up connect only the Walkman to the Computer.
Please be sure that no USB Hub is being used to connect the devices.
Try connecting to different USB port on the Computer.
Press the RESET button located at the rear of the Walkman after connecting to the Computer.
Check if Connecting or Connected USB (MTP) message is appearing on the screen when connecting to the Computer.
Activate Windows Media Player 11 or Windows Explorer in the Computer and check if it is recognized.
After trying all the possible steps above and if the issue persists, then the issue may be with the USB Connector of the Computer or the USB Drivers. Try connecting the Walkman to a different Computer to check if the issue is with the Player.

Sony Walkman NWZ-A826 will not conect to laptop via usb cable


I experienced exactly the same problem on my laptop (Vista Home Premium) after upgrading to NIS 2009.

From Control Panel, I went to Device Manager. Under Portable Devices there was a yellow exclamation mark aginst my walkman (Micosoft Code 19 error). I read around a bit before deciding to click Uninstall. Once that was complete, I clicked on Scan for hardware changes, and hey presto my walkman was recognised again.

This is almost certainly connected with NIS 2009 installation as my walkman was recognised by another laptop (XP) which is NIS 2009-free.

How do i make my mp3 connect with my computer


I had the same problem. I had not had any problems for months and suddenly it wouldn't connect. I got on live chat w/ Sony (3 times) and finally got someone who seemed to know what they were doing. I have a Sony computer and they had to send me a link for a USB "patch". After downloading it, it fixed it.

Can't connect to computer with NWZ-A816 Sony walkman.


I figured it out!

It used to be that when I plugged my walkman into my PC, the screen would read "connecting" but would never actually connect, so I couldn't add/remove songs from the walkman or even recharge it. The solution is easy. Plug your walkman into your PC, and then go to

Control Panel --> Device Manager --> Portable Devices --> Walkman

If you have the same problem as me, the Walkman icon will appear with a yellow exclaimation mark, signifying a problem. Just right click the icon, and selecte "Uninstall". After that, the driver will be removed from the PC. Now, unplug your walkman from the PC, and then re-plug it in, and the driver on the Walkman will automatically upload to the PC, and everything should be back to normal and the Walkman should work perfectly.

The problem is that the Walkman driver in the registry was partially damaged somehow (I think during a registry clean up I did earlier). Just uninstall it, reinstall it by plugging in your walkman to the PC, and voila. Let me know how it works for y'all!

Sony Walkman not connecting to computer


I had a similar problem (my computer uses Windows XP) - Sony Walkman beeps a couple times when I insert the USB Cable that connects it, like it is connecting, but it does not charge or is not found by Windows Media Player. In my case, the way I fixed it was to:
1, Go into Control Panel
2. Double Click 'System' ICON
3. Select Hardware Tab
4. Select Device Manager
5. Select 'View' at the Top
6. 'Devices by Type' AND 'Show Hidden Devices' should be selected
7. 'Scroll down to 'Portable Devices' and open it up.
8. My Sony Walkman was there with and Exclamtion point ( ! ) in a yellow circle,
9. Right Click on this yellow exclamation point.
10, Select 'UNINSTALL'
11. Once the computer says 'Device has been Uninstalled, Disconnect your Walkman's USB cable then reconnect.
12. At this point, my Walkman was recognized by my computer, started charging, and was recognized by Windows Media Player

Hope this helps

Try adjust the USB cable and/or switch which USB port it's connected to on your computer. Also just patiently let the player sit and try not to perform any other actions on the computer. When mine did this, I opened Media Player, wiggled the USB cable and waited. Eventually it connected and worked correctly.
