    i have had my sony nw-a1000 walkman for 2 1/2 yrs now and im still having problems with it.i had two sample songs on it when i got it,had problems getting the software to work to put more songs on.my brother managed to transfer some songs off his pc and i know their on my walkman as i can play the music on my walkman if its hooked upto the pc through windows media player but you cant play it through the walkman alone, plus it says theres no songs when i switch it on and says no data base found,my brother says that the songs must be in the wrong format for the walkman to recognise.how can i get the music off my walkman to my pc,please help

    Couple of weeks ago my computer crash and I lost all my data on my PC

    I manage to recover most of my files but some were corrupted.

    I re-intall connect player software on my PC and plug my sony walkman in.

    All my music was re-transfered to my library.

    Since then I am unable to transfer music back on my NW-A1000 walkman.

    I decided to restored the factory settings and deleted all my music from the device, did uninstall the software and install it again several time still no luck.

    Nevertheless when I open the connect player program on my PC all the songs are still there in the background on the player part saying ready to delete but nothing happen.

    I am still unable to transfer music and do get the following message on the player "No database found. Connect compliant software and transfer information."
    please let me know your view, I am kind of stuck



    My email is qrystoph@hotmail.com

I had the same or similar message and sent it away to be fixed last year. When it came back they said that it was because i had uploaded incompatible files (wma-windows media player files) and so it had corrupted the player. When i got it back I uploaded new files using the updated Sonicstage software (still not all that user-friendly) and had no problems.

I've since bought a new computer and no longer have the original software cd so i'm still trying to locate a free download (if anyone knows where i can get one, please let me know!) so that i can continue using it.

Hope this helps!!

Hi All

Dont waste ur time with Connect Player instead stick to Sonic Stage 4 or higher ver. It'll not make any more probs and once u start using u;ll know that its far far better than stupid CP. And we should accept the fact that IPOD is the king of MP3 players and itunes soft also its as simple as chewing a gelly candy.

Posted on Jan 14, 2010

Did you use sonicstage or connect to add the tracks? Because if you try to copy and paste to the removeable disk it doesn't recognise the tracks.

Cannot play says please connect to compliant software and update license information


Hi,

This issue may occur if the license for the track you are trying to play has expired on the device. If you currently subscribe to a music subscription service, connect the device and sign into the account to refresh your license to allow for playback. You may need to do this once during each billing period to listen to the subscription music you have transferred. If you are no longer a subscriber to the service where you downloaded the file from, you can delete the song from your portable player to prevent this error from occurring each time you try to play the song back.
If the issue happens with all the songs in the Player, format the Player and transfer the songs again using the Software or by dragging using the Windows Explorer.

Thanks for using FixYa.
