Philips pss110/05 problem connect to computer
This model is completely incompatible with Vista, and your problem ultimately will probably not be solvable.
Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged
Try another USB port
Reset the player
If that fails:
Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager:
www.usasupport.philips.com - change your country/language as needed
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on the Software & Drivers section
Click on "Firmware Upgrade Software"
Install the new Device Manager
Open and run the "Repair" tab
If still nothing:
Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.
After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.
If these methods fail, call Philips to see if you are still in-warranty.

The firmware has corrupted.
Run the Philips Device Manager, installed from the driver CD.
Connect the PSS110 to the mains and PC, when the Philips Device Manager registers that the device is connected click on the Restore option, and follow the on-screen prompts.
This will format the device and replace the corrupted firmware.
NOTE: ANY TRACKS WILL BE DELETED

hello, i found the original cd that came with the mp3 player, uninstalled musicmatch and pss device manager, disconnected from the internet and reinstalled everything on the disc. i then reformatted the device and had to go into settings on the portable device option in musicmatch and selected pss 110 rather than flash. the device works now although i had to select the 'add' from portable device rather than sending to it from musicmatch jukebox.
hopen it works for you. you may have to keep selecting the pss option as it seemed to re-set itself as a flash device a few times. john
