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.

NWZ-B105F - unit is fully charged per the display. I go to power on the player and nothing. I've tried he reset button and still nothing. Any suggestions? Thanks,


Make sure that HOLD function isn't on.

Connect it to the computer and reset it again, leaving it connected.

Check the Sony Support Web site to see if there are any available firmware updates for your model.

If possible, instead of connecting the USB cable to the computer, connect it to a USB AC adapter (if available) and try to charge it.

I had the exact same problem with my girlfriends sony nwd-b105 mp3 player. I fixed it by downloading the firmware version 1.2, which can be found here at the sony support link below.

http://support.sony-europe.com/dna/wm/nwf/nwf.aspx?site=&m=NWD-B105&site=odw_en_GB&odw_model=NWD-B105

- Backup your mp3 files
- Make sure your mp3 device is NOT plugged in
- Run the firmware executable
- When it asks for it plug in the mp3 device
- Check option: format data area
- Press Start
- When finished, take the mp3 device out and press the power button
- If everything went well it is creating a database again and will function correctly as usual
- Copy your mp3 files back to the mp3 device
- Enjoy your music again!
