    My mp3 player freezes constantly. I can barley listen to more than 5 songs some times. It happens the most on the random setting and when I reset it it takes about 5 to 10 minutes to start up.

    I just bought my philips MP3 player GOGEAR SA3245 and within the 1st time using it, it froze up on me. If I hit the reset button, it will reset, but what's the point?

There has to be 10mb of spare memory so the player can operate. That solved my issues. You can set it on windows media player (or in other software that you use for syncing)

It's not broken.
You have to upgrade the firmware on the GoGear to resolve the issue.

My 4 giga bite mp3 player is frozen

Take the video off (as in delete it from the goGear), re-run it through the ArcSoft/Philips Media Converter, reload, and try again. If the file is a music video, it is probably copyrighted and will not be able to play on the Go Gear.

Use the reset hole in the back of the player - small paperclip will do. Then get the firmware update by going to - will solve the freezing issue permanently.

Philips GoGear Glitch

Make sure that there is available memory. If there is, then you will need to do a firmware upgrade and reload the songs onto the player. If you already have the latest firmware, then you will need to reformat the player either in Windows Media Player or the computer. If that fails, use the repair function in the Philips Device Manager.

Cant turn my gogear on it FreezeĀ“s

WARNING: this process will erase all songs off the GoGear.
Disconnect the GoGear from computer.
Turn the GoGear off.
Hold in the volume + button.
Reconnect the GoGear while holding in the volume + button.
Continue holding the volume + button.
After 5-50 seconds, Windows will pop-up a "Found New Hardware Wizard." - complete the wizard (BTW, you can take your hand ff the volume + button now).
Good To Go (Gear)!
