napster could have scammed you and made the file a temp file for music but not to delete after the time period is over the best solution is to delete that music and buy them off a site like itunes or amazon mp3

I believe there are 2 primary causes of problems - PC specification and size of digitised music collection.
If you have a low spec PC and/or you have a large (>3,000 song) digitised music collection then you may experience performance problems with Sony Connect Player.
If you have a high spec PC and/or you have a small digitised music collection or it's your first MP3 player and you're digitising from scratch then the odds are that you won't have a problem. That isn't a promise, but it is what I have observed from my own experience and that of others.
Here are some fixes for common problems. I will add more as they become available.
What to do if you can't get past the Sony Connect Player License Agreement screen because you can't see the checkboxes that need ticking.
The following advice came fom Sony Tech support:
*Follow the onscreen prompts until you reach the [License Agreement] screen.
*On the [License Agreement] screen, if the radio buttons to select whether you agree or disagree with the license have not been created, press the [Tab] button four times and then left arrow key once, The [Next] button should no longer be greyed out, please click on it.
*Follow the onscreen prompts to complete the installation.
*If the [next] button is still greyed out when following the above steps please can you restart your computer, follow the steps above but this time when you reach the License Agreement screen press the [Tab] key once and then the [left arrow] key once. If the [next] button is now active please click on it and follow the onscreen prompts to complete the installation.
What to do if importing a large MP3 collection is very slow and sometimes crashes Sony Connect Player
This was the main problem I experienced with the first version of Sony Connect Player.
Solution 1 - I managed to get over 8,000 songs onto my NW-A3000 by doing the following:
* Disconnect the Walkman from the PC while importing tracks. This prevents the Sony Connect Player from trying to simultaneously import tracks and synchronise them to the Walkman.
* Set up a watch folder pointing to an empty folder. Add a number of your MP3s to that folder & let them import. Connect Walkman & Synch tracks. Close Connect. Use Task Manager to ensure that Cplayer & tinyhttp are closed. Disconnect Walkman. Open Connect & repeat process.
Solution 2 - Download and install SonicStage 3.3. This alternative Sony music management software is a lot more stable than Sony Connect Player. It works with the new Walkman models but a few features are disabled (Artist Link, Song ratings). So not every feature on the Walkman works but the most important ones - loading and listening to songs - are reliable for most users.
Hope this helps to solve it.

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.
