Plug in what? in the computer? its just in the chord. maybe the chord you are using to connect your walkman to the computer is not functional.

Sony walkman nwz-b135 when i connect it to my laptop it will add music etc, but will not charge thanx


Hi,

I'm sorry to know that the Walkman player is not getting charged. I'll be glad to assist you with this. Please perform the following steps:
If the New Hardware Wizard appears and is prompting for a location of the driver, point to the following directory: C:/WINDOWS/INF .
To function properly, your Walkman player must be recognized by your computer as a Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) device. If the portable player was connected to the computer before the Windows Media Player version 10 or later was installed, it will be recognized as a Mass Storage Class (MSC) device and not function properly. In that case, a different procedure is available to correct this issue.
For some models, when you use the portable player for the first time, if you have not used it for a long time, or the battery is depleted, it may take up to 5 minutes for it to be recognized or start charging. On models with a display, the display will remain blank. If it the portable player is not recognized or does not begin to charge after waiting 5 minutes, reset the player by pressing the reset button.
If this is not the first time using your player and it was working properly at one time with no major changes performed (such as restoring the operating system or replacing a hard drive), follow the procedure below:
Connect the portable player to the computer using the supplied USB cable.
Disconnect the USB cable from the portable player and then reconnect.
Check the connection status again.
Disconnect the USB cable from the computer and then reconnect.
Check the connection status again.
Check for available space on the player using Windows Media Player or My Computer .
Restart the computer.
Check the connection status again.
Check that the USB cable is firmly connected to both the computer and the player.
Check the connection status again.
If the player is connected to a USB hub, disconnect it and connect it directly to the computer with a dedicated USB cable.
Check the connection status again.
If the player is still not recognized by the computer, disconnect all devices connected to the computer with a USB connection and restart the computer.
After the computer restarts, connect only the Walkman player and test the connection again.
If the player is still not recognized by the computer, try a different USB port.
Check the connection status again.
Under the Common settings menu of the player, format the player using the built-in Format utility.
Check the connection status again.
Verify the current Operating System. If it is an upgraded operating system, contact the computer manufacturer for updated drivers for their upgraded operating system.
If you are running the Windows XP operating system, be sure you are running Service Pack 2 (SP2) or later.
If you did not have the latest service pack, test the connection status again after it has been installed.
If you are still unable to transfer music to your player and have not yet uninstalled and reinstalled the driver follow the procedure to confirm that the player is recognized by the computer as an MTP device.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

What driver do i use for my sony mp4 player... model number nwz-s616f.. please help me


Hi,
It is not required to install any Driver for connecting the Walkman Player to the Computer. The Driver for recognizing the Walkman Player as a MTP Device is already installed in the Computer. You can install the supplied Windows Media Player 11 Software for transferring the files to the Player. You can either Drag and Drop the files using the Windows Explorer to the MUSIC Folder which appears as a Removable Drive or can use the Windows Media Player 11 for transferring. If the Player is not recognized by the Computer, try connecting to different USB ports and try re-installing the USB Driver from the Device Manager.
Thank you for using FixYa!

DOES NOT RECOGNIZE PLAYER WHEN CONNECTED


ive got the new version of the sony sonic stage downloaded onto my laptop,and when i plug my player into my laptop via usb cable,the player itself is recognized straight away as a harddrive/removable disk etc,and you have to transfrer music onto the player as from sonic stage music library,and you also have to creatate you own music library via sonic stage,and u can also transfer music from your own music library wich you use via windows media player,and also u can transfer a cd into you sony sonic stage music libraty,and this is similar to when your using the windows media player as to rip a cd or transfer music onto an mp3 player,as i use all diffrent types of mp3 players myself,and i find the archos gmini sx 202 player to be pretty awesome player,as ive got to of them as well,and i use windows media player as to transfer music files onto them,and i cannot transfer any music files onto the sony ones via windown media player as those music file wont show up on the player at all,and ive tried this myself,and it will only work via sony sonic stage.

Sony walkman is not being recognized by XP as a portable device


I remembered that I had another problem with Windows Media 11 that seemed impossible to fix until I found somewhere that uninstalling or rolling back WM11 to the previous version then reinstalling fixed the issue. I decided to give that a try with this problem we're having and sure enough it worked. The Walkman is now recoginized as a Portable Device under Device Manager and in My Computer it is displayed as a Walkman and not a removable disk.

All you have to do is use add/delete software, delete or rollback WM 11 and then either use the Sony disc with WM11 or download a new version. All together it only took a few minutes and I'm back in business. No music or playlists were lost. Try it and let me know if it works for you.

Sony walkman nwz-a816 getting usb device not recognized


okay, try plugging it in. Go to Startmenu, right click 'My computer', and select properties. Go to the 'Hardware' tab, then Device manager. Down at the bottom, you should see a section of the tree that can be expanded, entitled 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' Find the Unknown device part. Select that, then go to 'Action','Uninstall'. After un-installation, the computer might restart. Unplug your walkman. When windows is back up, plug it in, and see if that works. if not, I have an alternative solution

MWZ-S615F will not charge or connect


I'm sure it's the cable that's not functioning properly. Mine started doing the same thing and after wiggling and adjusting the cable inside the MP3 itself, the computer finally recognized it and I was free to charge and add music. Also you can try to connect it to a different USB port on your computer. The beeps however are news to me, unless I just never noticed. One piece of advice is to never let the MP3 battery die, because after I let it happen mine began to experience more severe problems.
