At first I almost gave up and thought why didn’t they just spend a little bit more and get me a Zune or a ipod. Since I thought it was hopeless to find a converter or a site with videos that work on the Walkman. Then I did some research and found a program. Nero Recode 3 which is part of the Nero 8 software.
This program can take any video format and convert it into a mp4 format that Walkman will recognize. Even existing mp4 videos that do not work on Walkman. You can try Nero 8 for 15 days free, buy the thing from the Nero site, or get it by “other means”.
I have also found another program that works to get videos to work on Walkman and this one is from Sony themselves. Image Converter 2 Plus which is works fine to convert videos to mp4 format for the walkman even though on the site is does not list the Walkman as a supported device. (Nice going sony) But I tried to take a existing mp4 vodcast from G4 and make it into a mp4 that would work on my Walkman but then it said the format is not recognizable. So therefore you can’t take mp4 and convert into mp4 for your Walkman with Sony Image Converter 2 Plus. So I suggest just use Nero 8’s Recode software which works great for me.
If anyone reading this does know of a website with mp4 or m4v videos that for sure work for the walkman please leave it as a comment.
In a later post I will show step by step how to convert to mp4 using Nero Recode.
