The installation CD came with a file called Philips Device Plug-In - it is critical for viewing photos. DO NOT use this player with Windows Media Player 11 if it is a Philips HDD model - you can see the warning by going to their website at www.usasupport.philips.com

I don't know how to put music on this thing


Ok, you can simply use drag and drop method to transfer music from your computer to your MP3 player. You can also use Windows media player 11 to transfer music. Here is a link:

I ran the battery on my MP3 player completely down and it shut off. I charged it and now all the songs are gone... is there a way to recover the lost songs?


Try this:


1)Perform a system reset, which won't erase your files, to attempt to correct playback. Locate a thin object, such as pen tip or unfolded paper clip and insert it into the small reset hole on the bottom of your GoGear. Hold the thin object in place until you see the unit shut down completely. Your system has been reset. Power the device back on to see if the corrupted files have been corrected. If the reset failed to correct the issue, perform a file recovery on your GoGear.
2)Initiate a file recovery by first connecting your GoGear to your computer. From your computer's "Start" menu, choose "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Area Device Manager" and "Philips Device Manager." The Philips Device Manager software will be activated. Inspect your GoGear to confirm that it is turned off. Plug the small end of the supplied USB cord into the bottom of your GoGear while holding down the "Volume Up." Insert the larger end into a free USB port on your computer. Hold the key as the "Philips Device Manager" reads your GoGear and activates recovery mode. Click "Repair" and follow the onscreen prompts as given by the "Philips Device Manager" to complete the process of memory recovery. Disconnect your GoGear from your computer properly after the process is complete and restart your MP3 player.
3)Reload and replace the files onto your GoGear by first connecting your GoGear to your computer. Plug the supplied USB cord's small end into the bottom of your GoGear and the large end into your comptuer's USB port. Initiate Windows Media Player by clicking on its icon if it doesn't start upon connection with your GoGear. In the left pane of the WMP, click "Philips GoGear Aria." Click the arrow on the top left edge of the WMP window, followed by "Music." Highlight all files, and click "Delete." Click the "Sync" tab on WMP, and drag and drop the music files you would like to replace and reload into the "Sync List" panel. Click "Start Sync." The files will be freshly loaded onto your GoGear.
4)Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer to avoid memory corruption by first closing all applications in use by the GoGear (WMP). Click the USB device icon in your system's tray (located on the bottom right corner of your screen). Follow the prompts in order to safely remove your GoGear from your computer. When your computer tells you it's safe to remove your GoGear, unplug the USB cord from your GoGear.


Hope this helps!

I JUST GOT MY SON HIS FIST MP3 PLAYER AND I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DOWN LOAD HIS FAVORITE CD'S ON TO IT.


User manuals and quick start guides can be found on philips website here....

It looks like you have to install the program that phillips makes for this which you can there as well, but it should have come with a CD.
Most MP3 players should also be able to sync with windows media player. Basically you need to rip the cds into the computer and then sync it to your device. Here is a link to a site that gives an easy walk through on ripping music to windows media player....

If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!

Everytrime I try to use the drag and drop method to manually import music, it says there has been a sync error, and the music isn't transfered. Help!


It seems that the songs are DRM protected. If the songs are DRM (Digital Rights Management) protected, please use Rhapsody to transfer them. You can refer to this link:

If they are not protected, then use Windows media player 11 to transfer music. Here is a link:

Doesn't show up when i plug it in to my laptop


To download music or photos on to your Philips GoGear, you need to use a computer that has Windows Media Player and Device Manager already installed. Once these are installed, the steps to sync your Philips GoGear Jukebox using Windows Media Player are fairly easy to follow. Follow these steps to sync your Philips GoGear.

Connect your Philips GoGear to the computer with the USB cable. The USB connector on the GoGear is on the top, and will be on the front or back of your computer. You will see a USB connection icon as soon as the GoGear is connected to the computer.
1.Start Windows Media Player from the Start Menu or from the desktop. To transfer files to your GoGear from your computer, click Copy to CD or Device (with WMP 9) or the Sync tab (with WMP 10). 2.Find the Items to Copy pane. In the drop-down list, click the category or playlist that you want to copy to your GoGear. Make sure that items that you do not want to copy are unchecked. 3.Locate the Items on Device pane. In the drop-down list, click GoGear. When you have selected the items that you want to sync, click the Copy (with WMP 9) or Start Sync (with WMP 10) button.

Philips GoGear SA3245 - Playlists Not Showing Up on Player


Have solved this problem on GoGear syncing with WMP 11 by going to options on the device itself, then go to the "settings" option, scroll down to "PC Connection Preferences", from here you will select the check box saying "MTP" then back out of options and connect your device and go back to your WMP 11 and drag your playlists to the syncing area and resync your device. You should then be able to see your playlists under the playlist option in music along with the "playlist on the go" playlist.

Hope this will help!

Big problem with play lists


According to the manual for most GoGear's, you have to have automatic synchronization enabled in Windows Media Player for the playlists to transfer correctly.I still have not been able to verify if this is true, since I have been able to transfer playlists fine with and without auto-sync engaged.

I haven't tried a 3115 specifically, but with an SA4111 and an SA5125, I just created the playlist in Windows Media Player 11, right clicked on the playlist name after it was created, selected "Add to Sync List," and then "Start Sync" with GoGear connected. I used this method, because it seemed more likely to add the songs AS A PLAYLIST rather than just dragging and dropping the tracks WITHIN the playlist.

As I look more closely at the documentation for the SA3115, however, it does not have the same playlists options as other GoGear's - it seems to limit you to Playlist-on-the-Go. I know that the GoGear will not recognize folders that you create in Windows Explorer, so that option is out. You can connect the GoGear, and see if a Playlists folder appears in the left-hand pane underneath the icon of the GoGear in the Sync tab. My gut feeling, however, is that this player is just not as equipped as other GoGear models for playlist transfer. I'll go back to the lab on tuesday and see if I can find anything new.

Syncing


It is possible that you do not have Windows Media Player 10 or 11. If you do have WMP 10, then try resetting the GoGear first (with GoGear turned on, find a small paperclip or other such device, and press it into the reset hole; it works when the player turns off). Try syncing again.

If you have WMP 11 or Windows Vista, perform a firmware upgrade:
just open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website; click on the Update tab - this will give your player the firmware upgrade.

If these methods fail, reply to message using FixYa website (not my personal e-mail).
