I have a format error message on my sony mp3 player model nw-e507 how can i rectify this? i have songs on it and it only plays through usb on computer.

Hi cherylchiris,
The songs must only be in the mp3 (and m4a, maybe) format to play. Remember, not just the extension ".mp3", but the encoding must be in mp3. There are plenty of free programs that can convert your songs to mp3, like Mediamonkey, Itunes, etc.

I formatted my sony network walkman by mistake and ever since th

All support for Sony NW-E505 on the internet:

Go to the trouble shooting page, see:

Check under Troubleshooting the second point saying "After I transferred songs with the music manager....." , open the information by clicking once.

Check for the format of the File System as described in the overview.
When formatted in Windows Explorer the device has File System FAT32: this is the wrong file system for holding data.

Use the software that is delivered with your mp3 player to format it to the correct File System FAT or RAW.
After that your player will hold data after transferring songs.
