My Hardware does not show USB mass storage device.
I am not able to download anything to my Sony walkman (the wearable one)
It detects the device and shows its content.
But I am not able to copy anything from or to it.
Thank you

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated. Add comment

i tried ladydog's advice but ran into another problem
fine until when the OS actually starts trying to install MTP driver
it comes with a error saying, "File name, directory name, or volume label different" so I can't install it as MTP
It worked !! Thanks a lot.
omg this really worked!
tysfm! <3
OMG! I spent 20 minutes with sony chatting - they had no clue. your advice solved the issue...big thanks!
Ok, I tried what "Ladydog" said. At the end it said: This device cannot start. (Code 10).
For any further info I am using the "Walkman NWZ-S544" on Windows Vista Business Service Pack 1.
im having a strange problem
after I installed activesync for my phone the sony software doesnt see my walkman anymore
it pops up the window asking what to do "MTP Media player Windows can perform the same action each time you connect this device (Open device to view files Synchronize media filesto this device Take no action "

i have uninstalled activesync but it still doenst bring up the Content Transfer program
and even if I run the Content Transfer it doesnt see the walkman.

any ideas?
flashed the firmware on the walkman
fixed my problem
how do you flash it when sony doesn't provide us with any firmware files?!?!?!
where did you find the files? I accidently deleted the firmware files too on my mac -__-
i get get my fm radio to play on my sony walkman
Please help.
Every time it says : Installing Driver Software it just makes the big ! mark come again.
Even if it does "succeed".
Ok, I tried it again, it said it worked. But the big ! (exclamation mark) is still there. Any more solutions?
Through Window's Media Player I have been able to sync my files and/or choose what files I want on my player. I have only had music and .mov files for my purposes, but photos and whatever can go on as well. Just download this player for free from the Microsoft website if you don't have it.

Dear Sir,

If you had obtained any CD installation with it,

please reinstall it.

This should fix your problem.

Thanks in advance.
thx bro .
even my problem got fixed
the way is to connect the walkman to the computer and click file to go to proeties
then highlight the walkmans name and click ok look on the right hand side there should be a list of options click the third option and press save then refresh the page and try out the song or songs you want to put on there

after that connect the complaint software aka the usb cord and cick sync media files or somehting like that

it should work after that
please help me to put it on
