Sony Ericsson :: Zylo W20 PC Companion Error With File Manager
Dec 4, 2010
I just install PC companion for my new Zylo w20 and only file manager window is not working (not opening).I realize that because i connect my old SE k550i an that window was working properly and i was dragging and drooping files to my phone.What should i do so i can properly use these program for my new phone.
I can't use File Manager properly on W508a. When I press Options the only menu that comes up is for shortcuts! I want to transfer files from the phone to the card. Also I can't use the walkman function for files on the card, so I have to keep the phone open to listen to files on the card. The only way I can move files around is by doing it on the computer - which defeats the purpose. If I press options in any mode (I have just found this out as I have only just got this phone) the only menu I get is Shortcuts. Is this my fault or is it the phone?
I have tried to locate File Manager under Organiser on my C903, but I have had no success. I have reinstaled the software twice now but it has made no difference on the results. It might well be a problem with the software and in the manual it says go to Menu then Organiser and then File Manager.
I have been using W395 and if I keep the phone idle for some time in File Manager, the phone returns to standby. This happens also when I am seeing a movie and if I have paused the movie. Then I will have to start watching the movie from the beginning. Anybody else having the same problem? Any solutions?
I've had this phone about four or five years, I think. I use the radio and walkman functions more than I use it as a phone.
1. It's got a 512mb stick in it and I'd like to replace it with something with greater capacity - say 4gb or 8gb - do I can put a lot more stuff on it. I spoke to Maplin about a new stick and the chap there said, if the phone is that sort of age, I might be able to go up only to a 1gb or 2gb and should check. Does anyone know the answer please? 2. The handbook (which I have just downloaded) talks about a file manager function, but I can't see it on my phone - is this a problem? 3. I have gone through all the menus and can't see a function to let me format a new memory stick - can I use one without formatting it?
Wher is one of the best and the most handy SE options - adding songs to playlist in audio player stright from their destination folder? I just want to add some songs which location I know. searchin for one bl**dy song between 2000 other tittles is just ridiculous. Options provided by SE vivaz pro symbian software are just useless. Its easier to remember name of folder containing 100 songs than to learn by heart 100 tittles with artists names. I got used to listening to one huge set of e.g. house shared on 10 parts but in some way vivaz pro player spreadet them on the begining , midlle and end of ALL bout 2500 songs list. Is it possible to create some software update fixing this ridiculous mistake? maby there already is sth like that?
I need to be to get the Zylo up and running. Big thanks to Jay in Customer services. I am about to purchase a DCU 60 data cable and want the genuine article so I looked at the SE site. Has anyone bought a DCU 60 via the internet?
Lastly, this Zylo of mine has one feature that drives me nuts. Despite me trying everything, unless I keep pressing keys, the screen goes blank after around 10 secs. It is an absolute pain when I am browsing or reading/sending texts or e-mails.
It doesn't look like the Zylo activesync support the corporate required lock. Is this true? Whenever I try to sync it gives me an error check you settings message with nothing else. Anyone know if this is true and if there are any plans to add this soon?
I recently purchased a Zylo handset from the Orange Shop. It worked fine until yesterday but now the ear speaker is totally silent on both incoming and outgoing calls. I have checked the loud speaker, which is fine as is the microphone. There appears to be no other issue with the handset at all. Is there some sort of option I have accidentally turned on?
I bought the Zylo almost two months ago and I'm already having a problem with it. First of all, I can't hear a call from the handset itself, I have to speak from the speaker. Which is very inconvenient. The Service centre was not very helpful. He said check up from so and so date to check when the spares come in.i have to wait till the store opens and then call up and check when my phone can be repaired. Second problem that cropped up today is that my menu button does not work when the slide is open. My software is up-to-date as I updates it two days ago. Also I find the battery life very weak, isn't this supposed to be a walkman phone? I am outraged to find such problems with an SE phone so early into use. This has never been manhandled, why the problem then?
Sony Ericsson Zylo or W200i(I have no idea which one is it), is one phone which I worpship a lot! It have crystal sounds, great mp3 player, videos are so cool as well and the camera not to mention is awesome as well. One day I was at my grandma to help her with some stuff, and while listening to radio I was wandering, why zylo can be radio and have radio antennas, but not being mini TV and not have some sort of antena for television? I searched a lot on google to find out for any sort of telephone having TV with antenna or something, and I came out with this thing called "TV Tuner".
I searched a lot about Zylo if can have it or if I need to buy it and implement it like the recharging thing but still no clue. Then I searched only if any sony ericsson have at all this TV Tuner thing and I found only those "X10i" and "SO903i". So the big question is, why Zylo can have such clear videos(I convert movies or videos to small format and send them to memory card), but no TV at all? Is there a way to implement it or to make a tuner for people like me, which need to watch the sport, news and such after having a break from driving a car or bike on long distance. I hope such thing can be made and sold, this will be awsome to buy and have!
I have a Zylo phone & am able to charge, with a USB cable, from my laptop. My friend just purchased an Amzer solar charger. When I connect both devices, & turn on the charger, the phone shows the USB icon. However, the battery icon does not indicate it is taking a charge.
I am having a trouble with my Zylo phone. When I get the sms the phone does not recognize the number and display the sender's name. I was not having this issue from the beginning. From about a week's time I'm facing this issue. Also it is not happening for all the numbers. Only for few numbers the phone is not recognizing the contact. (I have checked the contact and both the name and number are present). When I clock the options and select Use Number and when I select the Call option, the phone recognizes the number and displays the name of the person when calling. However the SMS is not recognizing the number.
My mum has only had her Sony Ericsson Zylo phone for one month and is experiencing problems with it. The phones back light flashes on and off all the time, even when the phone hasn't been in use for a period of time. What does this happen?
My Zylo's screen is now blank?! I've taken the battery out and re-booted after a few minutes - the usual log on and graphics appear but then the screen goes blank instead of showing the usual main menu.
I have problem with my SE Zylo (W20i). I have no sound on incoming call.I cant hear the one calling me. They can hear me though . Hands free works fine, speaker phone works fine. It is only the actual phone that is totally off? Any thoughts? Might be an easy solution that I have missed but right now im stuck.
I have a terrible problem. It's something like this. I have a lot of saved pages in my Zylo, and when I type letter "T" for example it brings me on files which begin with letter "N", and of course I have some files which begin with "T".
I have a real problem at sliding when I slide down the buttons are enlighted(the control ones : up, down, left, right, answer, hang up and the other two ) , BUT when i slide up they are not anymore I also tried to see in the dark how do i manage to use the cellphone and it does't work quite well I hope you can find something that will help me I also have to tell that I updated the cellphone once to the final update and I also master reseted it. I added two pictures that I think would help you understand the problem. I hope you will find a solution that will work for this. I surely don't want to wait 2 weeks before it comes out from the service for it because this minor problem.
Recently I started problems with photos taken with my Vivaz: 1. When I trying to export photo in Picassa example to my PC desktop, its gives me an error: Unable to write all files due to Disk Error. 2. When I trying to rotate photo with Windows Photo Viewer, its says: there's problem with Picture File properties.
First I thought maybe is problem in Picasa or in Windows7, but with photos, taken half an year ago, everything is OK! I have checked twice all camera settings in Vivaz, didn't find nothing. Camera settings has been all the time the same: HD (16:9), Google Geo etc. Here is one photo with problems for downloading.
Just brought a zylo, nice phone.I noticed the sound stops when playing games and only can be reactivated after restarting. It happens randomly. I couldn't see anything about this online, so I wonder if this is a software issue or should i take the phone back for exchange?

We have installed PC Companion, but it asks for a "PC Companion update needed" and when we hit the "update now" button we get an error and then we hit ok and it shuts down PC Companion. Did an uninstall, and installed again, still the same. Is this software necessary to have? Finding this phone is not so user friendly.
My Xperia X8 is currently using the old version of Android I think 1.6 as my phone keeps telling me I need to update it to 2.1. I have been trying to do this with PC Companion but every time I try it, the software gets to the preparation section and tells me installation error unable to install or start phone software update components. I then have no option but to close the box.I then get another box come up saying the update of software failed. Please try again or consult Sony Ericsson support for assistance at url...I have tried several times to do it through PC Companion but it just will not work.My phone is telling me that the firmware version is 2.1 update 1, I did upgrade it to Android 2.1 when I first got the phone, but I had to do a factory reset of the phone due to an error, which set it back to Android 1.6.
I am not able to Connect my Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 min pro through PC Companion either by USB or by Bluetooth. I tried all the permutations and combinations suggested by Sony Ericsson support pages, yet no resort.
However, stragenly I was able to upgrade from Android 1.6 to Android 2.1 through PC Companion (though PC Companion refuses to detect). Now my handset say there are updates available and to be updated through PC Companion. However, this time PC Companion is not bending in any direction to support me.
