FW upgrade (1.11) for NWZ-S630F series UK Players
Version 1.11 was posted on the Sony support site.
Only one minor improvement: "When playing any music files, sometimes the units cannot be operated, and then, may turn off and on automatically".

It's for the UK players, and it installed flawlessly. Thanks!!!

Here's a link to the download @sony-europe:


Thanks Gix!!!

Worth noting there is also the same firmware upgards for the 730 series too......


I'll confirm all good when I get a chance to upgrade it at home.

Hopefully this will solver the very occasional shut down when moving from the sensme lists to the normal library. Only happened a couple of times, but maybe this is the issue.

since doing this firmware upgrade I now don't seem to have

(1) any thumbnails for any of my Iplayer videos (I'm sure I had some before)

(2) or any of my photos ?

(3) or any of my artwork for albums ...

only items that have any thumbnails now are the "sample" photos that came with the S639 ...

any ideas ?

Can't help with the above, but I can confirm all seems to be good with my player, and all my thumbnails and everything are in order.....

I bought my player back in early October before most people, so I think I've had it longer than most people. It was working fine except for a few minor crashes.
My s638f eventually started crashing every time I browsed or did something on the player, the crash would freeze the screen, and I had to press the reset button to restart the player. This would then occur again when I used it for another 2 mins. So I went onto the Sony website and found this firmware update, I just installed it and the player seems to be functioning exactly how it should have.

I highly recommend everyone download the firmware update to avoid future complications.
