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).

Cable Connect iPod iPhone MP3 Phone Audio to Mazda Car Player

Does your car player have a auxillary jack (looks like headphone hole)

or does it just have a tape player?

if it has an auxilary plug then you need to plug the cable from your ipod into that and set the stereo to aux for source.

if the car has a tape player go to the store and ask for the cassette that plugs into your headphone jack. then you can put that tape into the tapeplayer and plug the other end in your headphone port on the ipod and listen away

Trying to figure out how to connect the cords for the stereo and woofer i seem to be missing one and can't find the manual

To connect your MP3 player to a stereo simply connect it via a cable that will fit your headphone jack on the MP3 player and splits into two larger prongs on the other. This will allow you to plug into the two ports on the back of your stereo. Bestbuy sells the Hosa Technology 3.5mm TRS-to-Dual RCA Cable for $7.99.
Once you connect the MP3 to the stereo make sure that the settings are also correct. Generally you have to push a button or selector to choose if you want to listen to the CD player, radio, or cassette on your stereo. In the same fashion you need to select Aux In or it may be listed Line In.

When I put MP3 files on mine, the player will skip most songs and won't stay on them. Therefore, I can't play, listen, or delete songs without hooking it up to the computer. What's wrong?

See this tip posted here. Solve your MP3 Player Connection Problem.
To change the modes of your player -- Connect the player to the PC in MSC mode For Your Clip: Go to Settings > USB mode & select MSC Hope this helps, If this helps please give a vote.

How do i download music on my pc to my jensen mp3 player

Downloading songs to an MP3 player is similar on all the MP 3 players.

If you would like to download to your MP# player and then listen to MP3 files on your computer, then you need:
1.An Internet connection
2.An MP3 player.

If you find a song on the web as MP3 file, and you like to download it to your hard disk , all you have to do, double click on it.
Most songs range between 2 and 4 MB, so it will take 10 to 15 minutes unless you have a high-speed Internet connection.
Once the song has finished downloading, try to double-click on the file and see what happens.

Once you have downloaded the songs, connect the MP3 player with the computer via the USB cable that has been given in the box.

One end to go inside the MP3 palayer and the other to go in the usb port on the computer. The moment you connect the MP3 player the somputer will detect the MP3 player. You can then save the copy of songs you have downladed on your MP3 player.
You can select the sond saved on your compuet by doing a CTRL+C key and then go to MY COMPUTER> and under the drives section it will show your MP3 player. CLICK ON THE PHILIPS PLAYER TO GO INSIDE SO THAT YOU CAN DO A CTRL+V and copy the songs on the MP3 player.

That should do the trick and you shoudl be able to listen to your favourite songs on the move.

Please rate me if you are happy with the support provided.

""plz. connect player to PC""

Create a folder on your music player called System. Copy over the Font and Firmware update into this folder. Disconnect and then reconnect your mp3 player. It should then recognize it with Device Manager software. This took me a good two hours to figured out.

Hello - doesn't anyone listen. Connect the player to your computer, and open the Philips Device Manager, and run a repair.

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.
