Hi,
I have just bought a Sony Walkman NWZ-B105 mp3 player. I copied the data from the player to my pc as advised and then formatted the device.
I now have the following problems: When I plug it into the usb port it switches itself off after about a minute so I can not transfer music to it, and I have no "Safe to remove device" icon.
If anyone can shed some light on this I would be very grateful.
Regards the old submariner

Hi there

Did you format the player using the computer or using the players built in format function?

Ok, that shouldn't be the problem then.

Try this:
Go to Start -> Run and type devmgmt.msc <click OK>
Expand the USB Controller section.
Double click on the first USB Root Hub entry in the list to open properties
Click on the power management tab then clear the checkbox labelled 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power'
Click OK and close
Repeat this procedure for all the other USB Root Hub entries.

It may be worth rebooting afterwards.

Then try connecting the mp3 player again
