Question about Philips GoGear SA178 MP3 Player
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.
