Question about Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

Magnavox 2GB MP3 Player, MSA2025/37 quit working. We bought 5 for our kids. All but one still comes up with "Magnavox" word then nothing. Plug into our Dell Inspiron, recognizes but then says "can't start device." Any ideas, help? Yo tengo el mismo problema con mi reproductor. Cuando presiono el boton para encenderla, pues solo pone Magnavox y luego se apaga, y cuando lo conecto a una PC pues lo instala pero dice que hubo un error en la instalacion y que puede que el harware no funciona bien, y no se puede abrir, ni con el Device Manager. Me dijeron que se solucionaba con un firnware, o algo de eso, pero que se necesitaba un software -para abrirlo, que que no lo reconoce la computadora, aun no he podido arregrarlo. Por favor si saben algo mi correo es: gracias

    I followed the instructions of removing the software and then download it but now my player just blink when I try to turn it on and there aren't any files when I search it. When I conect it to the pc it shows OK to disconnect

    I have also had the same problem. I also tried to download and install the updated firmware. For Vista users out there ignore the fact that the firmware update does not state "Compatible with Windows Vista," I called and confirmed that IT IS compatible with Vista.

    This update DID NOT solve my problem, the device is actually not accesible to the PC. The repair software cannot find the unit. My reccomendation is to call the Phillips/Magnavox support center and let them know that this is a real problem happening to more than a few people.

    800-705-2000, have your model #, Serial #, and date of purchase ready.

    They are actually shipping out a new unit, which is WAY MORE than I expected, especially for a $30 unit... though this is still going to be a huge pain in my *** and a bit of a disappointment.

    There is only a 90 day warranty so step on it.

I just had the same problem. Here's what I did. Un-install the Device manger and then go to this websight:
Now download Device/Firmware Manager, Version: 0101001006 English (US) and instill it. Then download Firmware Upgrade - Software, Version: 002.022.005 English (US) and run it. Now open the Device manger and click the repair tab. Now hold the back button on the mp3 player and plug it in to the computer until the computer screen says that it has reported an error. Now click repare. This worked for mine I hope it works for yours.

Phillips mp3 player froze up on the gogear screen.

Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

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.

Can't down load music from itunes to my mp3 player

This is an "Mp3-CD player," which is not the same as an "Mp3 player." This device will only play mp3 songs that are recorded onto a CD in audio format. It will not take songs from iTunes, etc. By the way, iTunes songs are AAC format, rather than Mp3 format, so you can't just burn iTunes songs onto a CD and expect it to work with this player either. Sorry.

Mp3 player wont play music, says file not formated

The file not formatted message is not an error that a repair will fix.
The songs that you have loaded onto the player are in a format that the player does not support. Do yourself a favor, and only download files that rae in mp3 format - they will never give you problems, error messages, require long explanations, etc.
