Question about Philips GoGear SA178 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I think no pulse...

I got a Philips GoGear 512 mp3 player, SA 177/00.
Because I couldnt play my mp3 player, I decided to format and so more. I downloaded the cd from the Philips site and everything that goes with it. Now Ive 'reinstalled' (because that is what I thought) the firmware and trying to anything to get the player talking. Nothing is working! The player shows in windowsexplorer empty. NOthing, everything is gone. How and what must I install to get the thing talking again? I thought maybe I can run something that wil reinstall the files that were on the player when I got it. Is there such a solution? Please help me?! Lien

In order to reinstall the firmware, you have to go to the Philips website and change to the correct country code - a GoGear which ends in /00 was not designed for the United States, so you will have to go to the right country page, get THAT Philips Device Manager first.
If the Device Manager does not recognize the player, connect the player to the computer (while the player is in the OFF position) while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the vol + button for 5-15 seconds until a window pops up on the computer screen that says Found New Hardware Wizard. Follow the directions and it will lead you to do a Repair in the Philips Device Manager.

Is there any site that I can use to convert videos on my Phillip Philips SA1VBEO4K/17 because it won't play videos on it


Hello,
your player supports the video files which are .wmv (Windows Media Video) compression format, 30fps,512 kbps, 320x240 pixels.
If your video files aren't this type, you can convert its with the software you got together with your player.

Bye, gylacz

My Philips Gogear SA 1356 is not playing though the songs are loaded. It shows 'no files'.


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
Google search for free mp3 music files and download them to your computer. Then connect the USB cable that came with your player, connect it to your player and then plug it into the USB port on your computer. The computer will see the player as an external storage device, then copy the mp3 music files to your player.
You can convert your CDs for free and copy them to your MP3 player. Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

i think the flash memory is defective. if you have still warranty on your device bring it to your dealer. if not, you could try to format the players memory. go to my computer, right click on the device and use the option format. data format should be fat32. you do this on your own risk.

Downloaded songs but won't play on go gear 3020/37 how do i fix


First try opening the gogear device and click on music right after the welcome screen. Select either "All Songs", "Artists" or "Albums" to find your songs. If you downloaded your songs, they should display on the screen of philips gogear, then you can select them to play on your headphones

Only some audio formats (.mp3 .wav and .wma will be play on philips gogear SA 3020/37)

How to format philips gogear mp3 player?


I wouldn't format it. If you are having problems, run a Repair in Philips Device Manager. If you are getting format errors, then the songs you are trying to load are not compatible with the player - if you download songs that are in true mp3 format, then you will not get any format errors.

Dead after false upgrading


Hit volume + and reconnect the GoGear to the computer - after several seconds of holding the volume + button, Windows should reload the drivers.
