Question about Sony Vaio VGF-AP1L (40 GB) MP3 Player

Open Question

I have a Sony VAIO VGF-AP1L mp3 music player. Recently changed the battery and apart from giving a too hot warning on startup when fully charged the main problem is that it will no longer connect to a PC via the small USB port. I get the Connecting to PC screen for a few seconds followed by checking for music screen, after a few seconds it reverts to Connecting to PC... for ever Anybody got any ideas what may be wrong? Have tried it against two PC's both with sonic stage that worked previously and I know the USB ports work. Do not yet have a cable with two standard USB connectors to try the other USB port on the player. thanks Mike

SOURCE: mp3 will not connect with my computer

I'm pretty sure I fixed a similar problem. Go to your device manager on your PC and uninstall the walkman driver. After this is complete just plug the walkman back into you Pc and the plug and play will download the driver again. This worked for me. My operating system is Windows vista.

My Sony Walkman NWZ-BI52F .. when i play music it power off and can notopen again ( batter y is full ) and can't read or charged on pc ? plz help me


Depending in its age, the battery might just be shot. It may say full charge cause it takes all it can but it might only be a few min worth. Most Mp3 players can be taken apart and the battery replaced.

I bought a sony va10 mp3 VGF-AP1 series, i dont have the software for it and...


One of the typical problems people run into with MP3 players is that they lose the software that came with the player and can't figure out how to get music on or off the player. So here's a quick how to. This will work with most brands of MP3 players, or even USB flash drives.

First you need to plug it in to the USB port, if you are running anything newer than windows 98 you won't need a driver. Double click on my computer and it shows up as a removable disc(usually drive letter f:), double click this drive to open it as folder. This folder will show you all directory's and files on your player, here you can delete any songs on your player by finding the file and deleteing it. From here you can also put your music onto the player by copying and pasting your music files from your hard drive. If you are not sure where your music is located you can run a search by clicking START>SEARCH>FOR FILES OR FOLDERS (if you are running XP click pictures music or video, check music then click search, each file will have it's location in small print below it's name, or you can right click each song and hit copy, then go back to f: drive and right click and hit paste, you can copy more than one). Hope this helps.

I listen to the music for 1 hour. I turn the lock switch off. The next day the Go gear MP3 has completely discharged. I re charge it on the pc. The screen reads 'Fully charged'. The same thing...


There are two things possible.
1) You have defective re chargeable batteries in your GoGear.
2) There is some short circuit because of which the re chargeable cells are discharging.
Either way you should get the system changed. If you want to confirm if its the battery defect or GoGear. Charge the system fully and play music continuously. If the Go Gear plays for about 4 hours with out break---- its not the battery but the charging system.

The device won't play; time-counter stays at 00:00; NOT on hold.


Reset the player then try playing songs. Ensure that the battery is fully charged. You may also try formatting the player to reload musics. If the issue persists then get the player serviced.

Cant transfer music


Greetings from Ireland. I never had problems before, but i sent my MP3 player to sony for repair and when I received it it had the same issue.

The reason for this is that on the player there is some 5Mb of data that is generated by the firmware of the player. The firmware is like a bios of the device. If the firmware is not compatible with the software you're trying to transfer the music with, you will get this message.

Firstly, check if you have the latest version og Sonic Stage of Open Manager (depending where relevant). This should fix the issue. If it doesn't, you may need a firmware upgrade. The upgrade is easy to download and instal and is available directly from Sony.

Warning: Only install firmware and software updates provided by Sonly directly. Specially with firmware, wrong package can damage your player so be sure that the file you're downloading and installing is the right one.

Visit Sony Support page to download files.
