The Sony Walkman can be connected to the computer in the MTP mode to access the Walkman and transfer files to it. Any problem with the content transfer mode could be related to an incompatible or missing MTP driver rather than a hardware issue. The Sony Walkman sometimes installs as a USB Mass Storage Device instead of an MTP device. Installing the MTP can be done through the Device Manager utility of the Windows operating system. Once the MTP driver has been installed the Walkman can be connected to the computer using content transfer mode. All Sony device drivers can be downloaded for free from the Sony website.
Content transfer feature of my Sony Walkman is not recognizing my Walkman when it is connected although I can access my Walkman and transfer files to it via other means, I would still like 'content transfer' to be working so I can download files from BBC i player etc...can anybody help?
OS: Windows XP Pro
Windows Media Player 11
This is due to the MTP which is missing, To solve this problem:
Open control panel
Select Device Manager
Select Universal serial bus controllers
Right-click USB mass storage device
Select Update Driver
Hardware Update Wizard appears
Select Install from a list or specific location
Click Next: 'Please choose your search and installation' options
Select: 'dont search.I will chose the driver to install'
At this point you should see drivers for USB mass storage device and one called MTP. MTP is the one you want, highlight it and install it and hopefully you should be up and running...further than that I can't offer any more assistance...except to say that you need an MTP driver...maybe best to print this ..it's easier than it looks on paper.
