Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I don't get the option to install my sony walkman as an MTP device. If I try to update the USB storage device as MTP I don't even get the option there to install as MTP device. I've installed Windows Media Player 11 and the MTP kit. My walkman didn't come with a disk as it was ex display model. I can use it as USB device but no playlists get transferred. MTPWalkman doesn't recognise it so that's no good. It shouldn't be this difficult surely?


Answers :

I don't mean to sound dumb but did you mention which operating system you where using. You did mention that you hooked it up to your friends Windows Vista and it worked. This is just a guess but I would maybe uninstall the media player 11 and install an older version( I assume you are using Windows XP) and then see if it works. I had a similar problem with my xp not recognizing a certain card but when I installed it in my windows vista it recognized it correctly and right away. Sorry I couldn't be more help but good luck. Hang in there and you will be so happy when it works. I know you will figure it out.
