20 Most Recent Sony Walkman NWZ-B103F MP3 Player Questions & Answers


"Write Protection" is a definate problem, but may be solvable (short of reformating) by checking the original files which, most likely, came from a CD copy. To see the attributes, right click on the icon and go down to select properties. There you will find "read only" highlighted for both the album folder and its sub files or songs. At this point the trick of avoiding "write protection" is to select the "read" attribute to unselect "read". Then select "Apply" and a window pops up showing boxes, one of which will say apply to folders, sub-folders or files, etc. Click on that box, then click on "OK". You will notice that the folder "read" attribute will remain highlighted, but that the subfolders' attributes do not!! (This is for Windows XP) At this point proceed to copy this folder OVER the same folder. You will be asked if you want to overwrite the existing folder with the same name. YES, please. The files will be replaced with identical file data, except the "read" attribute will be blank or unhighlighted, and NOW you can delete the folder.

I was also facing the same problem, and while going with some hit and trials, was able to find a solution for this as following: power can be switched off by holding the main key for long, the key which is used to select the folders, that is, the center of navigation key. Hope it helps.

Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio Books, etc. from MP3 Player

Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal
Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on
"Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that
you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want,
release, right click and then click on "Delete"
Now your mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.

It means the Digital Rights to the song have expired.

From Sony's site:
"This issue may occur if the license for the track you are trying to play has expired on the device. If you currently subscribe to a music subscription service, connect the device and sign into the account to refresh your license to allow for playback. You may need to do this once during each billing period to listen to the subscription music you have transferred. If you are no longer a subscriber to the service where you downloaded the file from, you can delete the song from your portable player to prevent this error from occurring each time you try to play the song back."
