I figured it out!

It used to be that when I plugged my walkman into my PC, the screen would read "connecting" but would never actually connect, so I couldn't add/remove songs from the walkman or even recharge it. The solution is easy. Plug your walkman into your PC, and then go to

Control Panel --> Device Manager --> Portable Devices --> Walkman

If you have the same problem as me, the Walkman icon will appear with a yellow exclaimation mark, signifying a problem. Just right click the icon, and selecte "Uninstall". After that, the driver will be removed from the PC. Now, unplug your walkman from the PC, and then re-plug it in, and the driver on the Walkman will automatically upload to the PC, and everything should be back to normal and the Walkman should work perfectly.

The problem is that the Walkman driver in the registry was partially damaged somehow (I think during a registry clean up I did earlier). Just uninstall it, reinstall it by plugging in your walkman to the PC, and voila. Let me know how it works for y'all!

For anyone out there still experiencing this problem, here's a suggestion. I bought a generic USB cable to have as a backup for my Walkman. It worked fine, and I got used to using it all the time. Recently, I was unable to connect the Walkman to any of my computers. I tried every piece of online advice I could find. Nothing worked. Then I went back to the original USB cable that came with the Walkman. I plugged it in and it worked. The generic cable still works to charge the device, but it will not connect otherwise. Basically, I'm advising that you make sure the problem is not with the cable, even if you're using the original. Good luck. John

SOURCE: sony walkman nwz-a816 getting usb device not recognized

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

Problem connecting walkman to computer


Once you have added files in one mode, those files cant be changed in the other. Solve your MP3 Player Connection Problem.
See my tip posted here about this problem. Now Sony has 2 programs on their site for the walkman. One is called "Content Transfer" the other is called "Media Manager for Walkman" Check out these programs see if they help. Lastly, on the back of the player Is a small hole the tip of a paper clip will fit into to reset the player, try that if all else fails.

Mp3


if it doesn't sync, don't worry just open the folder where the music files are stored on your computer, connect your Sony Walkman to your computer and highlight the music files you want to add to the Walkman and select (copy these files) a windows will open for you to select the place you want to copy to, select your mp3 player and click on copy to copy the selected music to your Walkman

NOTE: if you Sony Walkman has a specific folder for music files, you need to move the songs you copied from your hard drive's music folder to the music folder on your mp3 player for the player to recognize the songs in order to play.

Walkman


Hi...I just found help on the sony support page www.sony.com. You can delete songs by going to MY COMPUTER and clicking on the walkman as a storage device and delete files right from there under the music folder. Your MP3 will update when you unplug it from the computer.
