Expert:  Rusty replied 5 months ago.

Ok, that's a good thing! That is usually what causes problems. Try different USB ports, and also a different USB cable. Tell me if you see any difference.

I'm going to see if my laptop has the same result as the desktop.

That will tell us a lot. The problem is either in the USB port on the computer, the USB cable, or the software or hardware on the walkman (yikes!) has an error.
