[tech] Solving not Finding NWZ-W202 Driver on Windows Update

When I am trying to hook up my Sony NWZ-W202 MP3 player to my computer with Windows 7 64bit, Windows told me there is no driver found online, so I went googling (yes, google is now a verb), and found there is a "Content Transfer" driver + software by Sony; happily as I did, installed it.

After the installation, I re-hook the player to computer, and it now says will go to Windows Updates to look for driver, but then failed after searching. I am shocked, and nothing says about connecting to a device after I opened the Content Transfer.

So I googled again, now I found a way for it to work

  1. When searching (installing) driver bubble pops up, select do not search the drivers online
  2. Select "Browse my computer for driver software"
  3. Select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
  4. Choose "MTB USB Device" (IMPORTANT)
  5. Finish
Now the Content Transfer program recognizes NWZ-W202, and the player itself shows in "My Computer" as well!

Hope the above can help out people who have similar problems.
