Gogear does not work with the latest Windows Media Player. Go to the WMP website to find out how to roll back to an old version, then make sure you have a driver.

Hey, I have the same problem. I can even play from the device to the computer, but it won't play or even show any music on the device alone.

Mp3 format??? HELP, PLEASE!

I don't know about converting the MP3s to WMAs, but I had the same problem with "corrupt files."
What fixed that for me was instead of dragging and dropping files onto the Sansa, I synchronized them using Windows Media player, but only do 10-20 songs at a time, because if you try to do too many, they probably won't show up. I know it's tedious and annoying, but that's what did it for mine :) I hope this helps.

How to clear the mp3 player and put new songs on it

Take off the USB cap on the side, and plug that end into the USB of a computer. The "My Computer" window should open and the screen on the mp3 should turn on. At this time, you can copy/paste songs onto the new drive that appears. (probably drive F: or D: ) When you're done, make sure to unmount the drive. On some Windows computers, there will be a new icon on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Right click that and choose "safely remove hardware". Then click "stop", then "OK". When it says you can remove it, make sure the mp3 doesn't have a loading animation. (not the battery animation)

On Unix computers, right click the drive on the desktop and choose "unmount". Make sure you wait for the loading animation on the mp3 to finish. Then you can remove the mp3 from the USB port.

To remove songs, you do the same thing, but instead of copying and pasting, you just select the songs you don't want on it and choose delete. (If you're on a Unix computer, delete the ".trash" folder as well(it's a hidden file) or else the songs will remain.)

There's also a way to transport files back and forth with Windows Media Player, but I haven't tried it yet.

Unwanted songs added to play list

You might want to try these suggestions: 1. In folders options, click on the box that will show all hidden files. 2. Be sure to copy the MP3 songs unto a Temp folder that you create only for these MP3's 3. Stop all background running programs, like spyware, anti-virus, firewalls etc. Be sure you are not connected to the Internet (DSL). 4. After all of the above has been accomplished, go ahead and do a Copy and Paste of your MP3 from that newly created Temp folder to your iLo MP3 player. I hope this helps. Restart your computer to get all background running programs running again.
