  • it shows that is an mp3 file in ubuntu, I drag and drop it in the walkman, and it says that the file is empty. I have this Sony Walkman NWZ-A729 dock – John L. Oct 11 '15 at 18:21
  • Have you tried using a media player to transfer the files, such as clementine? – earthmeLon Oct 11 '15 at 18:39

Try a media player, such as clementine.

Many MP3 players will allow you to copy your files directly to the mounted filesystem, but some do not. It is best to allow your media player to handle these transfers.
