Well it should show up under my computer as a lettered drive. But if you goto this link http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=NWZS618F&LOC=3 and select your operating system you can find a firmware update. As well as find software to use. If you update your firmware you should be able to fix this problem from happening in the future. If you are unable to update the firmware due to it still not showing up on the computer.
you may have to reset it to factory setting. this problem was possibly caused if you formatted the device on the computer and deleted its usb PNP settings. Instead of formatting it through the device.
to reset the device back to factory settings you.. 1. press and hold the back/home button in the pause mode until the home menu appears. 2. press the directional buttons to select the settings icon (looks like a suitcase) then press the play/pause button to confirm. 3.press the directional buttons to select the "common settings" and then press the play/pause button to confirm (the list of common settings options will appear) 4. press the directional button to select "reset all settings" and then press play/pause button to confirm.
(the confirmation screen to set back to the factory settings will appear). 5. press the directional button to select "yes" and then press the play/pause button to confirm. ("restored factory settings" will appear)
for reference you can find a copy of the user manual by clicking here.

How long should I charge my sony walkman before using it for the first time?What is the proper procedure?


Well, though there are no hard and fast rules for charging your MP3 player still I would recommend you to charge the player for atleast 2 hours before you start using it. Then ensure that you drain the batteries completely before charging them up again.

Hope you find this helpful.
