Ok I like iTunes and was going to try the firmware upgrade from here,

http://www.sony-asia.com/support/download/278646

But I bought my player in the States. It is the NWZ-A728B Firmware Version 1.00.

Can I still use this update? Should I even chance it? Will I lose any songs,videos I have on the player now?

I bought my e436 in Canada and used the sony malaysia firmware update. It worked fine, so I'd say the one from the sony asia or europe site would work also.

However, my player was formatted due to my previous video problems so I can't help you with your last question.

I have the A728B version as well. Did you ever get the 1.02 firmware on there?

(I think the B stands for BestBuy btw)

My computer recognizes my player and I can transfer files fine when I plug it into USB, but when I try installing the 1.02 firmware and it kept saying that it could not detect my player!

I tried multiple USB slots, XP and Vista . . .

Now I'm going to format it and see if that helps.

B stands for 'black', as far as I am aware :P

I doubt it stands for black.

Why would the "b" version of the player have a separate firmware option because it's a certain color?

I can't install 1.02 firmware because I have the "b" version.

Could also be your geographic location. Certain fw versions only work for players in that specific region.

Mines the "b" version and it worked well... I installed this update ages ago.. It doesnt have any difference in what I had noticed from the original firmware... but as darkside may had said that it might depend on your walkman's region

EDIT: do u mean b in the model number of "b" maybe somewhere else in the box.... which might be best buy
