However, not be transfer to the Network Walkman may not be possible if the built-in flash memory contains large size audio files, although the limitation is not exceeded. In such a case, delete unnecessary files, transfer audio files not listened to back to your computer, or change the bit rate of audio files. Bit rate indicates the data amount per second. The rate is reflected in bps (bits per second). If the bit rate is large, that means the sound quality is better though a large amount of information is used to play music.
