Transferring content using Windows Explorer

You can transfer content directly by dragging and dropping it from Windows Explorer.

  1. Connect the Walkman to the computer via USB.

  2. Open the [WALKMAN] folder as follows.
    • Windows 7 or earlier versions:
      Select [Start], [Computer], and then [WALKMAN].
    • Windows 8.1:
      Open [File Explorer] from [Desktop]. Select [WALKMAN] from the list under [This PC].
    • Windows 10:
      Open [File Explorer] from the [Start] menu. Select [WALKMAN] from the left pane.

    You can also transfer content to a microSD card.

    Select the folder with the name of the microSD card instead of [WALKMAN].

  3. Open the [MUSIC] folder in [WALKMAN].
  4. Drag-and-drop the files or folders on the computer to the [MUSIC] folder.

    Confirm that the transfer is complete. Then, disconnect the Walkman from the computer.


  • If you want to transfer content for the language study function, open the [LEARNING] folder.


  • Observe the following precautions. Otherwise, the Walkman may not be able to play the files.

    • Do not change the names of the root folders (such as [MUSIC]).
    • Do not transfer the files to folders other than [MUSIC] or [LEARNING].
    • Do not disconnect the USB cable during data transfer.
    • Do not format the memory of the Walkman on the computer.
  • The Walkman may not play some files due to copyright protection.
  • The Walkman may not display music information for some content correctly depending on the language setting on the Walkman.
  • Transferred content is limited to private use only. Use of content for other purposes requires the permission of the copyright holders.
