Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My songs won't synchronize

I have my 8Gb Phillips GoGear and I had Rhapsody To go for 3 months ,then canceled it after I got all my music but it gave me a notice about 2 weeks after I canceled and said " You have 8 days to renew your subscription. It counted down to 0 after a week and then my music stopped playing. Now it says either you have to renew subsciption or synchronize to your media player to play subscribed tracks.

That's true - that's the problem with music sub svcs that give you wma's - after the sub expires, your songs are not playable until you renew the service. If you don't care about the legality, you can get a drm stripper. Otherwise, just go with mp3 format songs from here on out.

    I would tell you, but they're probably illegal. Just do a web search for more info.

Philips Gogear Connect 3 8Gb runs out of battery in less than two hours.


I had the same issue. Device would charge in 30 minutes, but would then die in about 40 minutes of playing music.
Solution in my case was to reset. The first time I tried the reset I did it with the device off and that didn't seem to work, the second time I did it with the device on and it worked great. The device showed 8% battery life remaining. I reset and turned the device back on and it showed 93% battery life remaining!(I did not charge it) Since that time I have been playing music through Bluetooth to some remote speakers and still have 91% battery left.
To reset get a pin or knife and push in the small reset button on the non button side of the device.
Good Luck!
PS - If you don't own a Phillips GoGear Connect 3 DO NOT buy one. This problem aside it is the worst mp3 player I have ever owned. And if you subscribe to Rhapsody THIS IS NOT RHAPSODY ENABLED.

How do I transfer music into the MP3 Player from rhapsody list?


First, read your manual.
Second, find the name of the folder that the Rhapsody songs are stored in, and copy them or move them to the "My Music" folder on your computer. If you are handy with computers, instead of moving the Rhapsody songs to the My Music folder, go into Windows Media Player instead - click the arrow underneath the Library tab, and select "More Options" --> Library --> Monitor Folders --> Add the Rhapsody folder to your list of folders.
Third, make sure you have Windows Media Player installed on your computer, since that is the program you will be using to transfer the songs. Click on the Library tab, and make sure that the songs show up on your computer. Once you see them, click on the Sync tab and start dragging the songs (no more than 10 songs in one sitting) to the window that says "Drag files here to synchronize..."). Click Start Sync.

Warning: Some GoGear models recognize Rhapsody songs and others do not. If you have Rhapsody's Mp3-Only service, then you are in the clear no matter what model of GoGear you have. If you have one of Rhapsody's other subscriptions, you may be in trouble. If your Go Gear is truly an SA6045, it will recognize DRM-protected Rhapsody songs, so you will be OK. If you have an SA3025 or one of the newer models, you will only be able to successfully transfer songs by signing up for Rhapsody's Mp3-Only service.

Unfortunately you are not going to be able to go online to sync your device...All music subscription such as napster and rhapsody require you to sync your device every single month using their actual software..The reason is to prevent customer from cancelling their music subscription..once you cancel your membership all the songs you have on your device will become useless.In another word, you are renting the music from the subscription company...

P.S.Please rate accordingly...

The seconds option ,you have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there.
Either under sync4.gif panel in your windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete.

Do not use Rhapsody. See if you can get the downloaded songs from Rhapsody to Widows Media Player or another downloading program. If you need any help update the problem.
Good Luck

Music stopped playing "synchronize to continue..."


Your device has to be connected to Rhapsody every 15 to 30 days to verify your account.

If you are connected and signed in, and still receive this message, you should contact Rhapsody Technical Support as the error is on their end. (866-597-5507)


Best of Luck.

Synchronize to continue your music subscription


Do you have an account with Rhapsody? The preloaded music is part of the Rhapsody subscription service. If you dont have an account, you will receive that message until you delete the preloaded music, or subscribe to the Rhapsody Service. Best of Luck.
