Re: Sony mp3 player "FORMAT ERROR"

"NO DATA"/"FORMAT ERROR" may appear and the tracks cannot be played when formatting on Windows explorer and transferring tracks from SonicStage.

In this case, format by MENU of the unit and transfer tracks again.

Please consult the local authorized Sony service facility for assistance if the symptom persists.

Go to device manager and install/update the driver>browse computer for driver software> pick from a list of device>choose removable drive not the MTP. then it will show on your explorer, hence you can format it now using Fat16 or default settings.

Re: Sony mp3 player "FORMAT ERROR"

Never format the device in windows. The sony mp3 player has it particular language for a drive format. When you format it on window it is erased. Now do one thing format the player with its own formatting utility. After that past your song and then you will not receive the error again.
