Force stop only 'stops' that app it is running. It will stop the app giving you more memory (RAM) to run the player smoothly. Opening more apps will the background, will slow down the player & also drain the battery. It does not free space in the player.
Remove data will remove the app totally.
I removed most of the data using 'remove data'. The ones I couldn't, I just "force stop' and live with.

I still keep getting the same error message, where the updater prompts me to "connect the device to be updated", even if it's perfectly connected and recognized by Windows at the very same time. Does anyone have any idea about what might be going on? Thanks!
1. Download the firmware of the version the player is from. If you bought it from Japan go to Sony Support Japan, If from US go to Sony Support US etc.
Note: Save the firmware to a folder or on the desktop
2. After downloading the firmware, NOW connect the mp3 player via. the USB
3. After the walkman syncs with the computer NOW click & run the firmware.
It should detect the walkman automatically and automatically install the walkman from this point.
If you are noticing the walkman still not being detected, restore the walkman (save/copy your files back to computer before restore)
Do not run firmware before connecting walkman.
