Question about Sony Network Walkman NW-HD3 MP3 Player

1 Answer

DOES NOT RECOGNIZE PLAYER WHEN CONNECTED

I have a real problem with my Walkman as when I connect to the PC it does not recognize this although the player shows up on the screen it's connected. Thus I am unable to transfer any tracks on Sonic Stage or any other media player. When I do this on my PC at home it freezes completely. Have uninstalled and re-installed Sonic Stage & drivers many times but this does not help. If I format the disk, do you think this will help? When I connect my Sony NW-HD3 up to my computer. it installs no drivers and says that it has malfunctioned, so gets recognised as an unknown device. I don't even see it in My Computer as a a removable Disk. When I go to Device Manager it recognises its plugged in. So I tried to force the right drivers to no avail.

Ive got the new version of the sony sonic stage downloaded onto my laptop,and when i plug my player into my laptop via usb cable,the player itself is recognized straight away as a harddrive/removable disk etc,and you have to transfrer music onto the player as from sonic stage music library,and you also have to creatate you own music library via sonic stage,and u can also transfer music from your own music library wich you use via windows media player,and also u can transfer a cd into you sony sonic stage music libraty,and this is similar to when your using the windows media player as to rip a cd or transfer music onto an mp3 player,as i use all diffrent types of mp3 players myself,and i find the archos gmini sx 202 player to be pretty awesome player,as ive got to of them as well,and i use windows media player as to transfer music files onto them,and i cannot transfer any music files onto the sony ones via windown media player as those music file wont show up on the player at all,and ive tried this myself,and it will only work via sony sonic stage.

When i'm going to connect it does't show the music files and also i can't charge my walkman.and also can't copy the songs from walkman.


Hi,

The Computer will not recognize the Walkman when connected, if it is not having enough charge. You can try connecting the Walkman Player to the working USB port on the Computer for 2 hours and check if the player is getting charged. I suggest that you also perform the steps mention on the article given here. Click here to view the steps to troubleshoot the issue. This should resolve the issue.
Thanks for using FixYa.

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

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!

Sony Walkman not connecting to computer


I had a similar problem (my computer uses Windows XP) - Sony Walkman beeps a couple times when I insert the USB Cable that connects it, like it is connecting, but it does not charge or is not found by Windows Media Player. In my case, the way I fixed it was to:
1, Go into Control Panel
2. Double Click 'System' ICON
3. Select Hardware Tab
4. Select Device Manager
5. Select 'View' at the Top
6. 'Devices by Type' AND 'Show Hidden Devices' should be selected
7. 'Scroll down to 'Portable Devices' and open it up.
8. My Sony Walkman was there with and Exclamtion point ( ! ) in a yellow circle,
9. Right Click on this yellow exclamation point.
10, Select 'UNINSTALL'
11. Once the computer says 'Device has been Uninstalled, Disconnect your Walkman's USB cable then reconnect.
12. At this point, my Walkman was recognized by my computer, started charging, and was recognized by Windows Media Player

Hope this helps
