Question.. When you are on the sync tab of windows media player, with the walkman connected. Are you dragging and dropping the play list title itself, onto the sync tab and then syncing the music? Or, are you dragging and dropping individual songs.
Ideally, all you should have to do is drag the playlist title itself to the sync tab then sync with the walkman.
Try that, and let me know if it works.
Dustin S.Senior Technician and Network Switching Systems Operator / Maintainer.
To be clear, you dragged an individual play list to the sync section, then sycned it to the walkman and nothing transferred?
I wish I could offer you more. Im not certain if the firmware on the walkman needs to be updated, or if media player isnt compatible with the device.
Or if something else is occurring. I will opt out in the hopes that someone else will have further written steps that they can try with you.

Hi there, my name is***** to Sony, if playlists won't sync through Windows Media Player, you need to reformat the player and try again. This is from the Sony documentation here:
If the player fails to sync after multiple attempts, you may need to format the player and then re-attempt to transfer the files.
IMPORTANT: Formatting the player will delete any files that are on the player.
If you still can't get it to work, have you tried formatting the player and syncing the files again? Also, when you sync, instead of copying the folder of playlists, try copying the playlists individually.
If I've answered your question and resolved your issue, can you please accept the answer and rate me accordingly? I don't get paid anything for helping you unless you accept the answer and rate me at least 3 stars. If not, please chat me back and I'll get you the information you need to resolve your issue. Thanks and have a great day!
What happens when you sync a playlist with Windows Media Player? Does WMP act like it's copying the playlist to the Walkman? If there are no songs on the Walkman, does it copy the songs from the playlist but just not the playlist itself?
Just to clarify, you've gone to Settings | Common Settings and selected Format to reformat the player, correct?
Have you also used a paperclip in the reset hole to reset the player?
