Question about Sony Walkman NWZ-B105F MP3 Player
When I plug the player into my PC, the play keeps flashing "Data Access" but never connects, insted it justs opening and closing a Portable Device. dialog box.
I first found that when I plugged my player into my computer it registered it as a MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) device and in turn never showed up as a storage device on my computer. I fixed this by going into my Control Panel -> System Icon -> Hardware Tab -> Device Manager button.
Clicking on the "System Devices" tab should have "Walkman" or MTP device. Right click on it and go to properties, now before doing anything it should say "Location -- ------ Location 0 (Walkman)" if not try unplugging the walkman and see if the MTP device you're looking at is removed from the list, just to make sure it's the right device we're looking for.
If you've confirmed it's the Walkman, click on the "Driver tab" and click on "Update Driver...". Then click on the "Install from a list or a specific location (Advanced)" option and click "Next". Now select the "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install." and click next. It should now bring up 2 driver choices, one being "MTP Device" and the other "USB Mass Storage Device". Select the USB option and select next, it will then install your walkman as a USB storage device and after that's done. It should be a matter of unplugging and plugging the Walkman back in and it should show up on your storage options in "My Computer"

I had a similar problem. My computer would pick up the fact that I had plugged a USB cable in, but it couldn't read the device. When I push on the back of the cable near the base of the of the player, it would connect as long as I held pressure on the cable. I read Sony's repair page and didn't like their procedures. I then took a small screwdriver and pried the terminals in the base of walkman towards the cables terminals. This is not for the faint of heart and you may damage the player, but I figured if it didn't work to begin with I wasn't out anything. Little by little, I pried the terminals gently across the entire length of the board. When I plugged it back it, the computer recognized the Walkman and charged it.
