ITunes records in a format that isn't recognized by the walkman. the file extension for iTunes is WMF which is a Windows Metafile. You'll need to convert it to mp3 to listen to it.

Sony NWZB135F not reconized by computer


Hi!

No drivers are required to connect the Walkman to a Computer. Please make sure that the USB ports to which the Walkman is being connected is properly functioning. Next, press and hold the Reset button on the Walkman for 30 seconds.

Then, connect the Walkman to the Computer and check if it's being recognized. If not then open Device Manager window then check if there is any exclamation mark visible under any category specifially under "portable devices" or "Disk drives" category. If there is any exclamation mark visible beside any devices under any category, please right click on it and click Uninstall. After uninstalling all the devices with exclamation mark, please restart the Computer. After restarting the Computer with the Walkman should be recognized by the Computer.

Please follow the steps given below to open device manager:

Please press the Windows logo on the Keyboard and then press the "R" key while holding down the Windows logo key to open the Run dialog box. Then, please type "devmgmt.msc" in the Run dialog box and click OK to open the Device Manager window.

Performing all the above steps should make the Walkman work with the Computer.

Sony nwz-e436f frozen on connecting screen


Hey! We've had a similar dilemma, and we solved it by connecting walkman to computer, then going into 'device manager' uninstalling the walkman, then remove it from usb port and re-connect it.

The computer will then 'recognize new hardware' and automatically re-install the walkman. Good as new!

Hope this helps!

Can't connect to computer with NWZ-A816 Sony walkman.


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!

I downloaded songs onto my mp3 but they wont play


Here is the info from Sony:
Is it possible to drag and drop music from the Apple® iTunes® software to the portable player using the Content Transfer Application? Solution
sp.gif sp.gif Yes, if you have iTunes software installed, you can transfer music and playlists from iTunes software to the Walkman® player by dragging and then dropping the files to the Content Transfer application.
NOTES:
  • The Content Transfer application supports data transfer from iTunes software 7.6 or 7.7 to the Walkman player.
  • The Content Transfer application supports data transfer from iTunes software 8.0. However, for playlist transfer from iTunes software 8.0 to the Walkman player, make sure you are using the latest version of the Content Transfer application. The latest version can be downloaded from the Sony Support Web Site at http://esupport.sony.com
  • Digital Rights Management (DRM) copyright-protected files are not supported. iTunes music files may be able to be upgraded to iTunes Plus music files, which do not contain DRM.
  • Do not disconnect the USB connection during data transfer.
  • If there is insufficient free space on the portable player, the data cannot be transferred.
  • The Content Transfer application is included with most newer Walkman Video players. It also is available for additional models in the NWZ-A, NWZ-E, and NWZ-S series. Some models may require an update to be compatible. Additional model-specific information can be found in the Drivers & Software section of the Sony Support Web Site at http://esupport.sony.com.

The Sony NWZ range can only play WMV (windows media video) files. All movies you download through iTunes are .Mov (quicktime) files so these are not compatible. There are some convertors that can translate between .mov and wmv but for movies you have downloaded through iTunes, this will not be possible I'm afraid because of the copy protection they have built in.

To transfer wmv files onto your walkman don't use iTunes but use the Windows Explorer itself. Just drag the files on to the Video folder of your device.

All the best

My sony walkman NW-A1000 wont show any of my songs i put on it!!


firstly all the tracks you want must be converted into mp3 format. You can get hold off mp3 converter software such as Power and winlame. also all the tracks you want has to be imported into the Connect Player software. you should have a cd that comes with the player, it is similar to iTunes with the iPod. i think you can possibly download it from the sony website. when you have them both convert the tracks into mp3s and then import them into the Connect player. From Connect you will be able to transfer the music across. Hope it helps
