1. Go to the Settings menu 2. Change USB from whatever it says now to the other option. I.e., if Auto Detect >> MSC, if MSC >> Auto detect 3. Reconnect to the computer. Now you should see the songs. 4. If still you can't the songs, format the drive as described in the video tutorials on the product site Almost sure this will help you. Regards, Karo

How do i completely remove the recycle bin from an external fat32 drive?


Hook it up to your PC and look for any files that are not music files and delete them. If it won't delete, download a program called unlocker assistant. Once loaded on your PC it will delete any file even if it's in use.

Moving the iTunes Music Files to a Different Hard Disk/Folder If you are low on...


Moving the iTunes Music Files to a Different Hard Disk/Folder

If you are low on disk space in your iTunes folder then you can move these music files to another hard drive and keep your music library in tact without the need to create your music library again.

If you want to transfer your iTunes to an external USB hard drive, make sure that it is powered up and connected to your computer before opening iTunes.
Opened iTunes, click Edit and then Preferences. Click the Advanced tab.
Make sure the Keep iTunes Media folder organized checkbox is checked, and click Change.

Then select the location where you would like to move your files to. Click Select the Hard Drive and Folder or OK once you’re done.

The files will not move into their new positions by themselves –To do this – click File, Library and Organize Library. Check Consolidate Files.

When this process has been completed, go to the new location of your iTunes media and check the music files to see if they have migrated across correctly. Also play one or more tunes to test the music files.

The redundant iTunes music files can now be deleted from the original iTune location (C:\Documents and Settings\…..…\My Documents\My Music\iTunes). Delete everything from iTunes there except files titled iTunes Library.itl and iTunes Music Library.xml. These are still needed.

Hi I would like some information about deleting music off my sony mp3 player model no NW-E507 ?


When you connect the MP3 player to your computerand the computer detect the player as an external storage device or a Removaldisk, you can then view the folder on your MP3 player. Open the music folderand create a new folder on the player exactly the same way you create a folderon your computer's hard drive.
You delete files off your MP3 player exactly the same way your delete files off the hard disk on your computer.

Itunes file twice the size as library


when you add music to your itunes library, it copies them to the itunes music folder for itunes to manage it or itunes has every song twice in its library, to check whether itunes has not copied your music twice, view your music in LIST VIEW in itunes and if you see some songs has been copied twice delete on of them.
You can also delete the songs on your music folder to save disk space or you can leave them if you use another music player other than itunes.
But I think you should delete the files in your music folder.

1st approach (Quick one!)

1. Soft reset your device
2. make a backup copy of the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA if exists.
3. delete the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA.
4. Soft reset your device once again.


2nd approach (Long one!)

If 1st approach did not work, restore the MSMETADATA folder and try the following:

Step Zero: BACKUP
- Make a full backup of your device (including storage cards). If you don't like to do a full backup keep at least a backup of all files and folders we are going to delete as indicated below:

Step One
-In the main device directory delete the file WMPInfo.xml
-Delete the \Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\ directory and all of
the files in it including the WMDRM folder.
-Delete the \Music folder

Step Two
-Go to your SD card main directory and delete the file WMPInfo.xml
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\WMDRM
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\Music

Step Three
-Repeat step two for any other storage cards.

Step Four
-Refresh devices in WMP and the storages card should show up in the left tab
and in the sync window you can click "Next Device"

Hope this helps...

Can't transfer any more music;only half full


The filesystem has a limit to the number of files that can exist in one directory (around 100). If you are putting all the music in the same directory, the device will appear to be full even though there is a lot of space. The solution is to put your music into folders (per album, or whatever).
