20 Most Recent Sony Walkman Video NWZ-A816 Digital Media Player Questions & Answers

This player accepts MP4, not WMV. Here's what you want to do:
First, try the Sony Media Manager - it is available for free from Sony's website if you have lost your installation CD.

If the Media Manager won't recognize FLV, download a free program called Riva FLV Encoder. Convert the FLV files to AVI.

Once the videos are converted to AVI, use the Sony Media Manager to convert the videos to MPEG-4, and they will now be usable by your Walkman.

Good luck!

DOES the mp3 turn on or blink when you plug it??? If not you might need to reset it all mp3 always have a reset button that needs to be pushed when device is frozen or malfunctioning

okay, try plugging it in. Go to Startmenu, right click 'My computer', and select properties. Go to the 'Hardware' tab, then Device manager. Down at the bottom, you should see a section of the tree that can be expanded, entitled 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' Find the Unknown device part. Select that, then go to 'Action','Uninstall'. After un-installation, the computer might restart. Unplug your walkman. When windows is back up, plug it in, and see if that works. if not, I have an alternative solution
