Question about Sony Walkman Video NWZ-A815 Digital Media Player

8 Answers

Adding video to my Walkman NWZ-A815

I took video from my camcorder and firewired it into my PC. I converted the wmv format to mp4. I made sue the size was 320 wide, 240 tall. I use Media Manager and have tried Windows media player. When I drag the mp4 video file into Video on the Media Manager it says the file is incompatable.

    The op Manual says the Walkman takes MPEG 4 and AVC files. It also had pre loaded a Spiderman Movie trailer in MP 4 format

  • newtryan Sep 01, 2008

    I used Movavi Video Conversion to convert the wmv to MP4.

  • newtryan Sep 01, 2008

    I have confirmed resolution at 320x240 and bitrate of 2500.

  • newtryan Sep 01, 2008

    is there a problem using Movavi Video Converter to convert a wmv file to mp4 for download onto my ipod?

  • newtryan Sep 01, 2008

    I have no problem playing the video on my PC, the problem is downloading the mp4 file into my walkman NWZ-A815

  • newtryan Sep 01, 2008

    Movavi converts to an MPEG file, in paranthesis it says (MP4)

  • newtryan Sep 01, 2008

    You solved it-tried another converter-walman manager pro-$12.95 and it converts everything and downloads to the walkman. Thanks!

Not all video converter works 100% specially if its in wmv format.

Try another video converter application.

    For future projects, DO NOT use wmv as the file format.

    Opt for MPEG2 then convert it any format you want.

You have to use an mpeg file and not an mp4 file.
The mpeg file should have been converted with an mp4 codec before transfering it to the media manager for walkman

    I recommend you also to try This DVD Ripper which
    a friend told me. It could help you convert DVD to most popular
    video/audio formats such as mp4,avi,wmv,etc with only three steps. Also
    let you set the movie effects, Crop/ Trim video.

Alot of times they are very picky what the format it is you have to play around with some converter programs to find the format it likes.
If you need any other assistance let me know, and if you have a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks,

    It is very possible that is the problem. I would try a converter program where you can change the settings to find the exact format you need.

    Ok, if that already done, what you can do here is to try a different video converter to make sure that its not a problem with the video converter that you have use, there's alot of free video converter there that you can use...

  • Mark Gil
    Mark Gil Sep 01, 2008

    We just need to use a different video converter so we can really see if the video from a different converter will be working fine on this unit, because if ever a different from a different video converter still didn't work we're sure that the problem is with the player that you have , probably you may need to flash of update the firmware of this player...

  • Mark Gil
    Mark Gil Sep 01, 2008

    Yes it will play fine on your computer since your media pleyer on your computer can play almost all video file type.. If you want try to transfer again a newly converted video to your NWZ-A815 and lets see if its still the same problem....

WMV. Isn't supported by mp3.


dear aryathe los.let me help you ,
First ,let me see have a look at the supported format of walkman NWZ-E344:

MP3 • WMA • AAC -Audio Format
MPEG-1 - Video Format

If you want to knwo more review about this mp3 player ,please click here http://www.dealtime.com/xPO-Sony-Walkman-NWZ-E344-8-GB

So i think maybe you need to convert the wmv to MPEG-1 and then put it to your walkman player.

by the way ,if you found you can't find the video when you are using software,maybe it includes DRM-Protection.just guess.

Anyhow ,try the method as you know,i think you will found the right way ..for the software ,personally ,i used this video converter,it can convert wmv to mpeg-1 and it can also remove drm from wmv ...

How can I transfer video to walkman nwz-5545? Everytime that I transfer a file the walkman can not reproduce it.


★★★★★
omg i took me about a year to figure it out but i finally got it, i'll tell step by step.

1. you need a video converter because the walkman needs .mp4 files (i use Daniusoft video converter, you can get it via this link)
2. download ur files then plug ur walkman in and then go to start- my computer- walkman- storage media- video
3.go to start-my documents- then try to find ur .mp4 video (it mightby inthe my videos file or if u downloaded a converter like theDaniusoftvideo converter its gonna be in that file)
4. drag and drop the video file to video on ur walkman and ur done!

same thing with pictures except u go to pictures instead of videos and then drag and drop the file

sorry if u dont understand it, its kinda hard to explain :]

How can i put videos in my mp3 walkman sony


Make sure the video is in .wmv format. Sync it with Windows Media Player and it will convert it for you. You can get it into .wmv format by either using Windows Movie Maker and importing the video file and saving it, or google Prism Video converter and download that to convert it. It's fast, easy and efficient, and free.
