I upgraded my usb drivers -- I have windows xp pro -- i think they use all the same -- I used Realtek USB 2.0 card reader drivers. ( http://bit.ly/qeofyZ ) plugged it in (NOT in the front, but the back)_ & it recognized it after going to start, computer as "walkman" -- did a right click explore & all the data/music was still on the hard drive. then it showed on the walkman that it was charging & the battery was dead. i was previously using an AC usb adapter (plug in the wall) & it didn't seem to be charging it correctly -- so the computer works out for me & will only use that from now on -- fully operational.

Hi, I have this problem with my Sony walkman NWZ-B152F that when ever have I connected with my PC, it does not open or gets charged. the minimum PC configuration are all met yet the promble persist and in...


Hello,
I own this same MP3 player. Had this happen to me and I have a great laptop too. Just out of the blue it would not work in any of my USB ports. When your MP3 is plugged into your USB port you should be able to click on "devices" and go to your MP3 player and there should be a option to fix the driver. It will update the driver for the MP3 player. What's happening is your driver is not recognizing the MP3 player. No biggie, you just have to make it recognize it again.
Regards, Tony

Its a sony walkman NWZ-E344 mp3 when I try to charge it,'connected USB (MTP) the timer and alarm will be invalid' shows up.Eventhough I charge it like three hours it does not charge.


First unplug device from the computer. Go to Device Manager and look for NWz-E344. It may be under Portable Devices or under disk drives. It depends on your OS. When you find it, right click and select Uninstall. After it uninstalls, connect the player to the computer. The computer should run the plug-and-play add hardware to re-add the device.

Sony Walkman NWZ-E438F connects & disconnects itself from USB


I suggest that you uninstall and reinstall the USB Driver to resolve the issue.
Follow these steps to uninstall the driver and confirm the player is recognized properly.
IMPORTANT:
  • This procedure must be performed while logged in as Administrator or to an account with Administrator rights.
  • If you are using the Windows® XP operating system, you must have Service Pack 2 or later installed.
  1. Click Start and then click Control Panel .
  2. In the Control Panel window, click Performance and Maintenance .
  3. In the Performance and Maintenance window, click System .
  4. In the System Properties window, click the Hardware tab.
  5. On the Hardware tab, under Device Manager , click the Device Manager button.
  6. In the Device Manager window, click the plus (+) sign in front of Disk drives .
  7. Click to select the Sony USB device .
  8. From the menu, click Action and then click Uninstall .
  9. In the Confirm Device Removal box, click OK .
  10. Disconnect the portable player from the computer.
  11. In the System Settings Change box, click Yes.
After that, restart the computer and reconnect the Player to resolve the issue. USB Drivers are generic to the Operating System and will reinstall automatically after restarting the computer. I hope it works.

Sony nwz-b135f problem


MTP problem SOLVED!!!!! Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} I have a Sony MP3 Player(NWZ-B135F). when i inserted it to my pc's USB port(which is working fine), win XP (SP 3) prompted "Found New hardware" wizard. I followed the steps and finally I reached to a step where it shows “MTP device Problem......” I tried many times with different USB ports, but the same problem happened.

Fully frustrated, I finally did what the whole world does, GOOGLE my problem. Google showed me a lot of posts but nothing could solve my problem. Microsoft was providing the MTP driver, but only after a lot of authentication and procedure, which I was not going to follow….

After repeatedly experimenting by inserting my MP3 player, I got the solution!! It is as follows:



1) Insert your music player in the USB port. You will get a Hardware Installation wizard by XP.
2) Select, “No, Not this time” and click next.

3) Select “Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)”.

4) Select “Don’t search. I will search the driver to install”.

5) Select “USB Mass Storage Device” and then click "Next"

Enjoy and listen to your favorite music!!

NWZ-B103F MP3: connected to USB port on pc( vista) and tried on laptop( xp)


I first found that when I plugged my player into my computer it registered it as a MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) device and in turn never showed up as a storage device on my computer. I fixed this by going into my Control Panel -> System Icon -> Hardware Tab -> Device Manager button.

Clicking on the "System Devices" tab should have "Walkman" or MTP device. Right click on it and go to properties, now before doing anything it should say "Location -- ------ Location 0 (Walkman)" if not try unplugging the walkman and see if the MTP device you're looking at is removed from the list, just to make sure it's the right device we're looking for.

If you've confirmed it's the Walkman, click on the "Driver tab" and click on "Update Driver...". Then click on the "Install from a list or a specific location (Advanced)" option and click "Next". Now select the "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install." and click next. It should now bring up 2 driver choices, one being "MTP Device" and the other "USB Mass Storage Device". Select the USB option and select next, it will then install your walkman as a USB storage device and after that's done. It should be a matter of unplugging and plugging the Walkman back in and it should show up on your storage options in "My Computer"
