Mp3 player is 'dead' when disconnected from computer...
I bought my sony bean mp3 player in canada and i am now in europe. when the power had almost run out, I connected the player to the usb port to recharge it. when it is connected to the computer it says, "usb connect" and the power indicator is full and says "full" beside it. but when i remove it from the computer, it stays on for about 10 seconds, but it won't play and then it turns off. no matter what i press, the screen stays black. i don't have the manual here with me. are european usb ports different than north american? have i broken it? please help me make it work!!

I had this problem myself. The solution is to take a fine, rigid object, like a paper clip, and use it to press the "reset" button, which is located just above the USB adapter on the device, and clearly marked.

Yes, you need Sonic Stage software installed in PC to transfer mp3 files in this Sony MP3 Player. Click Sony Support, select OS running in PC in drop down list to download Sonic Stage software, install it in PC then connect mp3 player with PC and transfer files through Sonic Stage. Thanks.
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.
--**Windows Media Player**-- If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.
hiya I have a sony bean too and it does exactly the same thing as yours, if you havent sorted it out yet all you have to do is look under the usb flap and you will see a reset button, push it gentally with a pin, it will work agauin and you wont loose all your music, hope this helps
A few options, one is that you deleted system files when deleting mp3's and now its inoperable. Sorry, can't really help you on that one.
another option is that you're just not using the sony software to put songs in the player. song will transfer, but the player won't know what to do with it.
I heard that apart from the sonic stage software, there's another simpler one (minus some BS) than the sonic, on the sony site.
