PC doesn't recognise my Sony Walkman.

I get a small balloon saying a USB device has malfunctioned and nothing more, I've tried upgrading the firmware however it get a something called a Code 10, saying the device had reported errors and Windows had cancelled the connection.

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium and it's a Sony Walkman NWZ-A729.

Just to let you know Windows7 can recognise a Walkman, although I'm unable to say why you're encountering difficulties. I've got a NWZ-A818 model and it gets detected perfectly under devices and hardware, and works beautifully.

Hmm, not good. It's recognised in USB Devices in devices manager but it comes up as unknown devices.

Hi and welcome

If not recognized, it needs a driver.

Windows 7 recognizes my NWZ-S545 just fine. The only confusing bit is this....if I remove the USB cable from the computer, which I do sometimes because I have an AC USB charger for it, then the next time I connect it to the computer, it reinstalls it as a second Walkman. It hasn't been a problem, I just remove the previous image, but it's strange that it happens.

By driver do you mean Firmware? Because I tried updating the latest version however it kept saying there was no device connected to the PC.
