Install Sonic Stage software cd in computer or click Sony Support to download Sonic Stage software by selecting OS in drop down list. After installation, plug MP3 player in computer and transfer mp3 files in player, Sonic Stage will take care of no data format problem as well.
The most common cause is a flat battery. There is a trick to charging
the battery in these small mp3 players. It wont charge if it is turned
on, and it won't charges if it's turned off. Here what to do...
1. plug the payer into your USB port. or wall charger
2. switch thje palyer on using the mechanical switch (on the side)
3. turn it off by either holding down the play button, or selecting
"System" from the menu
4. The screen will go black and the battery will begin charging.
Itmaybe a battery problem...if you think its not a battery problem,you may want to try a software upgrade/restore...if your software version is already the latest one,backup all the ipod contents before you restore...you will find the restore option in the summary tab in itunes.
I have the solution. Push the menu button (the one ne with the file folder) until "search" is displayed. push the down arrow key on the jog button,10 times, until "advanced menu" is displayed. Pushe the right button on the jog until "format" is displayed. Use the jog buttons until "format ok" is displayed. Then push the play button and the problem is sorted. Good luck.

Does the device turn on when connected to the computer? If so, press RESET button on your device and then try again. If the problem continues, you may want to go to the Sony Support Center and download the firmware software for your device.
