Question about Sony NW-E002BC Walkman MP3 Player
It says that it is chargin and it does but it doesn't come up so that I can download music
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

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
