How to Add Music to a Sony Walkman Bean

Updated February 21, 2017

The Walkman Bean is a portable MP3 player released by Sony in 2005. It has since been discontinued but many people still own Walkman Beans and you can still find them available for purchase on the Internet. If you own or have recently purchased a Walkman Bean and are curious as to how to add music to the device, you can rest easy knowing that it is a simple process that requires very little time and effort. All you need is a computer with a USB port and you'll have music on your Bean in no time.

Slide the plastic cover on the top of the Bean back to expose the USB (Universal Serial Bus) connector. The connector should pop out from the interior of the phone once the cover is pulled back.

Turn on your computer and insert the connector into its USB port. Then launch the music player on your computer. On a Mac this will be iTunes; on a PC it will be Windows Media Player.

Locate the "Devices" heading in the main screen of your music player and you will see the Bean icon listed underneath the heading.

Highlight any songs in your music library that you wish to add to your Bean and then drag and drop them into the Bean icon. A status bar should appear and once it finishes the music will be successfully added to your Bean.
