Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.
1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new
Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

Press volume + with the player disconnected from computer.
Continue holding volume + as you reconnect player to computer.
Continue holding volume + after you connect player to computer.
Windows will recognize it for what it is after 5 to 55 seconds and will say "Found Hardware Wizard" - go through re-installation.
Get the latest firmware upgrade after you are done by Opening Philips Device Manager - Click on Update Tab - this will prevent problem from recurring in future.
Note: if you have Windows Media Player 11, ignore everything I said. You must rollback to Windows Media Player 10, or this player will give you constant heartache.
