Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

1 Answer

My Phillips 8G Go Gear won't play a lot of my songs that used to work before

All of my files show up in the sync tab of my windows media player. When I unplug my MP3 player, I see all of these songs where they're supposed to be, but it will either say(file format not supported) or won't even let me open the song and won't say anything at all (almost like it's stuck or something).

Also

I tried to repair it using my device driver by holding the + and holding it down as I plug it in, however nothing happens. I was reading other posts saying I should back up my music before I try this. How should I go about doing this?

I left my mp3 player hooked up to my computer over night...i'm thinking it was just a bug that worked itself out. I have no idea how that happened, but it works fine now.

How do i download music to my mp3


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files onto your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player.
For CD disks you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

How to download music to Phillips Go Gear 4G.


Use Windows Media Player to load songs onto it. Here are my help files:
The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/windowsmediaplayer/wmp10/harrison_wmp10.mspx

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/faq/sync.mspx

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/mediaadvice/0085.mspx#EDF

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

7. Press the “Delete” button on your computer’s keyboard

My Phillips Go Gear 8GB MP3 player wont sync music


Windows Media Player 11 ruins this player. Uninstall Windows Media Player 11, and roll back to Windows Media Player 10. Then use version 10 to sync songs to your device.

You can use the Media transfer software that comes with the player, or hilight and drag the files from Limewire into Windows Media Player, then open up the sync tab and make a list and hit sync. If you do this, make sure that the file is not being played on Limewire. You can ensure this by hitting the stop button on the Limewire Media Player, or playing a totally different song by double clicking the file in your Limewire Library.

Rather Frustrating


Are the song still playing? If not (or even if yes), you just need to re-sync the songs or music. What are you using to sync it? You can use Windows Media Player. It works Great! Here is a link to the handbook for instructions on how to use it with media player - download the manual. Also, NOTE: you may have to change your Windows Media Player options under Tools/Options/Library Tab and ensure that the "retrieve additional information from the internet" is checked as well as the "overwrite all media information" radio button (at least for this time around so that the info will resave and load on your music files). Good Luck!

Before trying to delete the duplicate songs, first try re-synching your GoGear with Windows Media Player by connecting the GoGear to the computer and clicking on the Sync tab (if you haven't set up the GoGear for automatic sync).

You must use Windows Media Player to delete songs from the GoGear. With your GoGear connected to the PC, you want to highlight (single left click) the icon of the GoGear (or line that says Philips GoGear blah blah blah) on the left hand side of Windows Media Player 11 - this will ensure that you are deleting files from the GoGear itself, and not the computer. Once the GoGear line is highlighted, click on the "Songs" or "Album" folder underneath the GoGear line (NOT the "Songs" or "Album" folder underneath the "Library"). This will bring up a list of songs stored on the GoGear into the middle pane of Windows Media Player 11. Highlight (single left click) a song you want to delete and press the delete button on your computer's keyboard. windows USUALLY gives you a prompt asking if you really want to delete the files/they will be permanently removed from your (GoGear) device. Congratulations, you have just deleted songs from your GoGear! :-)

The HDD 1630 doesn't work particularly well with Windows Media Player 11, so you may have to follow Microsoft's instructions for rolling back to Windows Media Player 10.

My MP3 Player stops midway while downloading files


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Try using Windows Media Player (version 11 should be fine) to sync music files to it. Using drag-and-drop to the device folder only sometimes works (and usually doesn't).
