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

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,
lee

    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.
    Thanks,

    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....

Iwave pod bluetooth speaker


Unless your PC is Bluetooth capable, you'll need to get a Bluetooth device to make it so. This is just one of many such devices to select from. Amazon com Roker Ultra Mini CSR Bluetooth 4 0 Usb Adator for PC and... They vary in size and price. Shop around to find one that best suits your budget. But you want an adaptor/receiver specifically for Bluetooth. (you will need an empty USB port for the adaptor)

Hope this information helps, best of luck!
