Sync problem I have had philips sa6045 go gear for 2 years and have never had a problem adding music to it. For some reason now windows media player says it can't because of the device. It says I need to reset or unhook from computer which I have done.

    I have the same problem with my SA6045,. Mine won't sync files and gives me the same message: "Your device is running slowly or not responding. Try to unhook and/or reset the device..." or something like that. It has worked for me once lately when I used a friend's computer that has Vista (I have XP), but I wasn"t able to try it more than once so maybe that was just a fluke. I have tried updating the player and reset it many times, but the problem is still there...

Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and click on the “Repair” tab. Then click on the “Repair” button to start the repair process. Most of the time, when your player is in that state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged in. If this is the case: Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.

How can you listen to music


First, you will have to transfer the music to the mp3 player. You can transfer music and pictures to your player using Windows Media Player. YOu can download it from here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/windows-media-player

Once you have installed WMP, reboot and plug your mp3 player. By default, Windows Media Player automatically loads all the music and picture files stored in your My Music and My Pictures folders into the library. If you add new files to these folders, they will also be automatically added to the library. Then you will have to synchronize your mp3s player with WMP.
You can sync your music and pictures to your player using Windows Media Player. Simply connect your player to your computer using the supplied USB cable, set up sync, and you will be ready to sync your media library to the player. When you connect your player to the computer for the first time, Windows Media Player automatically selects the sync method (automatic or manual) that works best for your player. Automatic: If your player has sufficient storage space (at least 4GB of free space) and your entire media library can fit on your player, your entire media library will be automatically copied to your player as soon as you connect it to your computer. Manual: If your entire media library cannot fit on the player, then you will be prompted to manually select specific files or playlists that you want to transfer to your player.
Once you have transfer the music you want-unplug the player from the computer and that's it. If you have more doubts, you can download the manual from here:

Songs don't want to synchronize onto my device


First you need to sync device before adding songs. First plug in device, than make sure computer notices player. Than go into media player or music folder and sync device. Than you can either create a sync list from there, or you can drag songs from music folder into your player folder.

Open start menu, my computer, E,F, or G drive should have player on it. You can drag songs from music folder into this drive folder and they will be automatically added

These directions only apply to the Philips SA6045/37:
It's not going to be easy, because you will have to do two undesirable things: 1) Set your player up for auto-sync, which will result in the player adding unwanted media files to your player without your consent - and possibly overloading your player; and 2) You will have to roll back to Windows Media Player 10.

If you ask me, it's not worth it, but here's the procedure:
  1. Playlists can only be synchronized to your player via “auto sync”. Autosync will automatically synchronize your Windows Media Player library content and your player content each time you connect your Player to the PC. If you use the “manual” sync option the tracks in the playlist will transfer to your player but the playlist itself will not.
  2. Hook up the Player to the computer, allow a few minutes for the Windows Media player to recognize and detect the connection of the Player.
  3. Click on the Sync tab.

  4. Click on “Sync settings” or “Set up sync”
    070507074142_18945.gif
  5. In the pop-up window, select the playlists that you want to sync
  6. Click “OK”, the sync will start automatically
Note: playlists never show up in the device panel under the sync tab of Windows media Player even if they are on your device. Check on your device whether you can see the playlist.

How do i get the pictures off my gogear?


Connect the device to the PC.

Open My Computer. The GoGear should show as a drive.

Double-click on GoGear, navigate to the Pictures folder and delete the files manually.

To prevent this happening again, go into the Windows Media Player settings, and select manual sync. This varies with different versions of Media Player.

Not adding songs?


You will need to reformat the GoGear in Windows Media Player, but do a firmware upgrade first - open the Philips Device Manager and click on the Update tab. Then click the update button. After the firmware upgrade is done, open windows Media Player.
REFORMAT FOR WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER - Erases Everything: Connect your GoGear to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Philips Go Gear SAXXX" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything, and make your player properly read in Windows Media Player.
