SOURCE: MTP DEVICE Sony 4gb walkman NWZ-S616 not installing

simple when the pop up of the installation window comes up..

just say search for drivers manually..
then go ahead and choose the bottom options on windows..
and its gonna config the device to be a mass storage device..
then you just drag and drop or use WMP..

i know its not a complete explaination but just mess around with it works! :) cheers took me 2 hours and it was that easy haha!

SOURCE: Sony Walkman NWZ-B105F MP3 wont connect

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.

SOURCE: Sony Walkman NWZ-S615F problem detecting and syncronizing

I had the same problem. One day my Mp3 started acting weird and said it was not recognizing the files and that i needed to re download them. Try plugging it up to your computer while its charging and hit the power off. Then reset your mp3 with the button at the bottom and it should recognize it.

SOURCE: My Sony Walkman NWZ-E435F wont turn on at all even when plugged in with my USB

I had the same problem. For at least a week. Try pressing the reset button. The reset button won't delete your music, videos, pictures, etc. Just resets your system. If that does not work then i don't know what else to tell you.

I have a sony walkman NWZ-W252 the only number i can find is the serial number 5052051 and it is not being recognized by my computer when i try to install it it says its corrupt

On a Windows OS you might need to go to go to the "Device Manager" (google it please) and when the device is connected and there is a problem it should show you the device with a yellow mark next to it.
Right click it (make sure it's the one for the mp3 player) and choose 'uninstall'. Disconnect the mp3 player, wait a few seconds and reconnect.
Make sure the computer is connected to the Internet.
Try connecting it to different computers to see if it makes a difference, if not then your mp3 player may have developed a fault.

My Sony Walkman NWZ-BI52F .. when i play music it power off and can notopen again ( batter y is full ) and can't read or charged on pc ? plz help me

Depending in its age, the battery might just be shot. It may say full charge cause it takes all it can but it might only be a few min worth. Most Mp3 players can be taken apart and the battery replaced.

Here is the official manual online: Sony NWZ-W252 MP3 Player

When you mean "How to open", do you mean How do you open the player on your computer? If that's the case, if you have a Windows based Operating System, you should be able to just to to "My Computer". then once you have connected the mp3 player to the PC, the mp3 player will show up as an extra storage Hard Drive logo on screen. Once that appears you can drag and drop MP3 music files onto the device.

Hope this helps!

My Mp3 wont connect to my computer anymore after

Hi, I have got the same issue as you. So take the CD that was delivered with the Sony Walkman and reinstall it in your PC. Then your PC will recognize your Walkman again.
