Happy New Year

January 1, 2010

First off I want to say Happy New Year to you all.

It has been a long time since my last update but I just wanted to say a few things.

First off, my lack of updates is rather obvious. I no longer use my Sony Walkman. Last spring I bought an iPod Touch off of someone I knew for very cheap and I have been using it constantly since then, the only time I don’t use it is when I mow the grass because I am too afraid I will damage my ipod.

Also I wanted to say to everyone who has been leaving comments and helping others. Thank you all! It is because of you this blog is still alive. I had hoped originally when starting this back when I received my Sony Walkman as a Christmas gift that I could help others with their issues with their walkmans and using video. I would like to think that with your help I accomplished that. To any first time readers who are reading this post for the first time, do not be shocked, you will probably get frustrated with your Walkman, and if you had a iPod you would also get frustrated, that is going to happen with ANY new gadget you get. There are a lot of helpful comments here on this blog so please take the time to read them as there are simple and FREE programs online that you can use to convert any video to your Walkman.

Hope everyone has a great 2010, and Sony if you ever read this please contact me, I would be more then happy to offer you advice for future Walkmans and share with you information I have gathered through this blog.



Merry Christmas From My Sony Walkman

December 24, 2008

Merry Christmas or whatever holiday you are celebrating!

I decided to take some time this Christmas Eve to write a small update for anyone who sometime after tomorrow will be a new owner of a Sony Walkman.

I’m sure your wanting to jump right in and start using your Walkman just like I was last year when I got my Walkman for Christmas.

Well here is some information if your new, first off if you did not buy the software with the walkman to convert videos for the format then you like so many will have problems getting videos on.

But never fear this blog has been open for about a year now and already many Walkman users have come together to help one another in their woes over the walkman to find a free video converter software.

So once again here are some links to free software that will help you. Mind that some of the software does not use every type of video format out there.


I have used the ipodvideoconverter myself and was able to put videos onto my walkman while I have not tried the cocoonsoftware one it was suggested by a user comment on a earlier blog post.

Also please disregard my earlier post about NERO Recode the program is very complicated and it takes some tinkering to get it to work just right, so save the time to find a download and save the money and don’t buy it.

Best of luck to you all,

My Sony Walkman Blog

P.S. I also run a twitter for a gaming site as well if you use it too I would apreciate a follow.

Check the comments.

I loaded up Sony’s website and looked around for some support help.

After finding a live support option for my type of Sony product. (Sony Walkman) I began a chat with a nice Sony tech support worker. As you can see he was not very helpful other then trying to tell me to go buy another Sony product. Here is the transcript below.
