I try to turn the mp3 on and it will go right to "BOOT ERROR".


I wanted to make a bootable USB to install Ubuntu 14.04 on a desktop computer. So i tryed to use the "Startup Disk Creator" on my ubuntu 12.04 i already have on my laptop to try to make the Walkman bootable. Then where it says "Disk to use" i chose the walkman. Then i had to press the option "Erase Disk".  I had a really bad feeling but i was kinda desprete to get it working and i was sleepy, so i pressed it.  In the end it never worked to get it bootable. So then later i would connect the mp3 to my computer and it would'nt read. It said on my mp3 "BOOT ERROR".  And that's all.


My computer won't detect it.

I tryed the reset button.

When i press the Play/Pause button it would say "Walkman" like always and then right away say "BOOT ERROR"

The battery is full.


Any advice on how to make it work again?
