Connecion problem, sonicstage doesnt 'see' the mp3 player

Hi,

My problem is all of a sudden now after opening sonicstage, when i conect my mp3 with the usb, instead of reading it and connecting it to sonicstage for transfer it just pops up at the bottom with 'Safely Remove Device' so its ready to take out and therefor i cant add any more music to the dvice?

Can anyone help? Thanks

    I have the same kind of issue.

    I run Vista and have used Sonicstage to transfer music across to my NW-A3000 whilst running Vista, yet now when I run Sonicstage then plug in the device nothing happens, whereas once upon a time the program would instantly recognise the player and build a library of what was present. I could then transfer, delete, rearrange, rename tracks to my heart's content. Now nothing, not even an error message.

    Unfortunately this "Get updates of SonicStage at Sony Official Website, it might help you out. Check download area.Get updates of SonicStage at Sony Official Website, it might help you out. Check download area." response is of no use in my situation as I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Sonicstage, updating drivers and firmware for the player, even completely wiping all things Sony from my PC and re-downloading the sonicstage installer....... none of which have made any difference.

    I'm getting desperate now (aswell as slightly annoyed) as I want to be able to put new music on my player, and can't afford to shell out for a new device for the forseeable future.

    When I connect my mp3 device to the computer, Sonicstage does not detect the player but my computer does. Any suggestions?

I CAN NOT PLAY THE MP3 SONGS OR OTHERS. WHAT SHOULD I DO ?


Hi,

The NWE503 Walkma player is compatible only with the ATRAC3/ATRAC3+ and MP3 songs. These songs format will work only when transferred through the supplied SonicStage Software.You can download the latest version of the SonicStage Software from here
Transferring the songs using the SonicStage Software will resolve the issue.

Downloading music.


hi there gurdy!
Sony mp3 players are great mp3 players, except with one problem. You need to get Sonicstage, the mother program for their mp3 player, to put music in their. So, one way is to go here first:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=NWE405
download the Sonicstage program, and install it into your computer. (WARNING! First install the Sonicstage, then connect the mp3 player to the computer, otherwise it might not work.)
When you are done installing it, and you plugged the mp3 player, open up Sonicstage. It should open up with a screen saying many things such as My Library, Transfer, Music...
From there, go to add music (top left corner button next to My Library, next to it) and three choices should come out, saying add files, add folder, or import CD. From there just add files from your computer.

Then, click the Transfer button. There you should have a split screen, half My library half Transfer aka mp3 player space. Choose the songs you want to import and click the arrow pointing right (in the middle).
Give it a few minutes to download into the mp3 player.
After it is all done, either exit the program or just pull out the mp3 player and wha la music to your ears!

It's a nice mp3 player.

Hopefully this solution helped out.
Please contact or reply if you have anymore problems.

When i plug in usb cable for my a3000 player, the error code 82040008 appears,saying that a3000 can´t work


All I can suggest is that you go to the sony website and first go to the download page for sonicstage cp. There is a link to update your firmware to 3.0. After doing that, if you arent already using it, download sonicstage cp from there and use that instead of connect or old sonicstage. That will probably sort you out.
