I had to format the drive on it in order to get it to work on my Mac as it had a virus, and after putting in my songs (around 220), I turned it on fine. But when I pressed play again to get the music going, nothing happened. No sound, no flashing light, nothing. All my files are there, but I can't get it to play any songs. I checked the volume, I waited for a good 5-6 seconds, nothing. Please, I really need a solution as I cannot live without my music and I haven't any money to replace it.

How do I Put Music on an NW-E003F Sony MP3 Player?
The Sony Walkman E003F is a small portable device resembling a flash drive. This Walkman has 1 GB of storage which accommodates about 685 songs. When the battery is at capacity, the Walkman can play back up to 28 hours of audio. The small player has a built-in USB connector to make downloading convenient. If you want to add songs to your MP3 player, you must use Windows Explorer to download MP3-, AAC- and WMA-formatted audio to the device.
Remove the USB cap on the player to reveal the USB plug.
Insert the USB plug on the player into the computer's USB port.
Select "My Computer" from the desktop "Start" menu.
Double-click on the "WALKMAN" drive folder to open it.
Double-click to open the "MUSIC" folder.
Drag the audio file from the save location on the computer and drop it in the "MUSIC" folder. The songs will load and play in the order that they are dropped into the folder.
Q.: My player is having a DRM error / Format Error / Empty Disk Error what do I do? A: For all 3 errors, the first step is to attempt to reset the player, this can be accomplished by pressing the play and menu buttons down together for approximately five seconds.

Q.: What's Reformatting, How do I format my Player? A: Reformatting your player basically wipes you player clean and deletes all songs, leaving you with a blank slate. Like most removable drives you can reformat your player with no worries of damage to the unit. When reformatting on a Mac make sure you choose the MS-DOS format style. (CAUTION: FORMATTING WILL ERASE EVERTHING ON THE DRIVE) PC (Windows NT, 9x, XP and Vista): 1. Plug in the Mp3 Player. 2. Put the Player in removable drive mode. Under "My Computer" you should see the player as a removable drive. 3. Right click on the "removable drive" and a Drop down menu should appear. 4. In the menu select the option "format..." 5. Make sure that "FAT" is selected as the file system and that Allocation Unit size is set to "Default Allocation Unit Size" 6. Now click format and wait, after it says format complete, you're done. MAC OS 9 (and Earlier): 1. Plug the player in. 2. Put the player in removable drive mode. 3. Single-click the disk's icon on your desktop to format. 4. Pull down the "Special" menu from the top of the screen and select "Erase Disk..." 5. Enter whatever name you want in the "Name:" field in the window that pops up. If the disk is a hard drive, select "Mac OS Extended" from the "Format:" pull down. If the disk is not a hard drive (such as a Zip Disk or other removable media), select "MS-DOS or MAC OS Standard" for the format. 6. Press "Erase." The drive will be formatted and ready to use. MAC OS X (and later): 1. Start your computer and plug in the player in the USB port after the Mac OS has completed loading. 2. Put the Player in removable drive mode. 3. An icon for a removable drive should appear for the flash drive on the desktop. 4. From the Dock, open "Disk Utility". 5. Click "Erase" from the top selector (next to "First Aid") 6. Choose "MS DOS File System (FAT16)" 7. Click the "Erase" button 8. Perform the instructions given on the screen and finish the formatting.

All songs must be in MP3 or WMA format in order for the player to load any of the songs to play. If songs are in any other format (MP4, ACC) they must be converted to MP3 in order to work. Instructions are on the Intova website how to convert music to MP3 if needed. If the songs that are loaded onto the player are in MP3 format when you press the play button you should see a yellow indicator light meaning the music is playing. If this light does not come on there may be an issue with the player. If this light does come on but you still cant hear any sound then the headphone wires may be damaged. If there is an issue with the player or headphones manufacturer Intova will be happy to help get you back in the water. Please contact Intova at email@example.com for further assistance. Thank you.
What you need to do is backup all your music. Then you need to do a format and download the firmware again. You might have gotten a virus and that is the way to get your mp3 player back to the factory state
The songs that you got are probably from the Rhapsody trial. Once the subscriptino expires, you will on longer be able to play those songs on your mp3 player.
To avoid this problem, only purchase songs that are in mp3 format from Rhapsody's Mp3 Store. You will find that mp3 players are expensive propositions in 2009 - it used to be much easier/cheaper.
If you want to go with illegal but free (I do not reccomend it), you can get songs from Limewire, Frostiwre, or Morpheus. Three warnings I must issue:
1) Only download songs that say "Mp3" under file format.
2) Some ISP's will cut off your internet service if you use limewire
3) Make sure you have strong Anti-Virus software on your computer, b/c the free svcs are littered with viruses/adware/etc.
"File Format Not Supported" - SA6045/37
The file format not supported message means that the type of file you are trying to load into the GoGear is not compatible with the GoGear. There are no GoGear's that are compatible with iTunes. As far as WMA files are concerned, the GoGear's vary wildly. If the WMA file has a bit rate higher than 192 kbps (which is quite common nowadays), it will not work. If you actually have an SA6045, then make sure the license on the WMA file has "transfer rights," or that the license has not expired. You can check this by right-clicking on the song, selecting Properties, and looking at the tab that says "license" or "digital rights management."
If you find that you are using an incompatible format, convert the songs to mp3 format. If the songs came from CD, use Windows Media Player to re-rip the songs in Mp3 format. You can do this in Windows Media Player 11 by higlighting the "Rip" tab, pulling down the drop down-menu by clicking on the little tiny arrow that appears underneth the word "rip," and selecting "format", and then "mp3".
-Tha Mp3 Doctor
The MAC reformatted the player, and eliminated the formatting that contained the music songs - this player had a dual mode system where it could either function as an MSC device or an MTP - the manufacturer placed Recordings and Radio on one mode, and music files on the other. A PC can recognize both sides. Macintosh cannot. This player is not MAC-compatible.
