Som music videos will never play on that Philips b/c of the copyright system. For all other videos, you can convert them to AVI format using Riva FLV Encoder, and THEN run them through the Philips Media Converter.

I formatted my player. Than added new music files. When I try to play them it shows error "No files". But when I open this device through my system. I am able to see music files. Plz help.

This device is only capable of playing MP3 and WMA files. Make sure that the files are in a format that the system can recognize. If that doesn't work, use the software for the device to make sure the firmware is up to date, and not corrupted, and reload the files. Hope this helps!

I convert a video from youtube to my mp3 and i could play the video on my windows media player but when i sync the video to my mp3 player it either wont work or it will just become an audio

That means your computer can play lots of media files because it supported multimedia files example audio or video. Unlike your mp3 player has only limited file format supported. So much better if you try to convert into different media or video format example 3gp,mp4 or avi.Try to download and install this software it might solve your problem Total Converter or Real Player Sp converter.

I have not been able to copy CD's onto the MP3 player. I keep getting a formatting error when trying to convert even though I am using WMA and have tried MP3.

mdcope2 - delete the msuic files that you already ripped from CD off the GoGear. If you Rip a song in WMA, and then re-rip it in Mp3 format, when you go to sync the mp3 file, the GoGear will basically ignore the new file, because it thinks that the file is already on the GoGear since it has almost the same name. Once you have deleted the affected songs, re-Rip the songs in Mp3 format using Windows Media Player. This time, when you go to sync the songs, it will work.

Guest - to load video files onto the GoGear, you have to convert and sync them through the Philips Media Converter - no other method will work.

Non-Supported format detected

Some videos, like music videos, have a copyright protection system on them that will not allow them to play even if you use the converter. You can also go to Philips' website and get the upgrade for your Media Converter - worth a whirl.

Wont play music

The songs are in the wrong format - they are probably DRM-encrypted WMA files that you are trying to transfer, and the license on those files are wrong; they are either "fixed-term" or lack "transfer rights"

To resolve, either upgrade your music svc subscription, or convert the songs to Mps format
