Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

1 Answer

Music won't sync to mp3 player! D:

I'm having a lot of trouble with my mp3 player... It's a philips gogear. I'm not exactly sure what "model" it is but it's oval-ish and the front has all these blue dots on it.

Anyways, the only music I have on it right now is some stuff I had from a cd... and I forgot how I did it. Something rhapsody...? Recently I made an iTunes account and bought some new songs. But I've been trying for two days straight and I get sync the songs to the player. I've tried with iTunes sync (some thing i downloaded) and while it says it syncs to the player, when I look for them nothing shows up. I tried with Rhapsody, and got the same thing. I tried with Windows Media Player and it can't find the songs... even when I clicked on the specific folder they're in (my documents/my music/iTunes/iTunes music. I even tried dragging the songs onto the desktop but when it asked me to find them they still didn't show up.

When I plug in the mp3 player I get this small window with the options: Play[using windows media player], Copy disk [using sonic recordnow copy], Manage music [using rhapsondy], open folder to veiw files uusing Windows explorer, and "take no action". I tried clicking the one that said "open folder to veiw files" and the songs showed up in the music section, but when i get on the mp3 player itself nothing shows up but the old songs from the CD that I put on a billion years ago.

I'm really getting annoyed here as I bought these songs and I want them on the player. I just don't know how to do it >_> I also realized I may have downloaded them in the wrong format... but how do you download them in any other format? What I did was search for the song in iTunes store and click the first one I saw.

Is there any way to switch the file format without having to buy the songs again?

I also don't know what kinds of formats this thing supports... I tried searching for it but no results.

(Also keep in mind I don't even know if this is the problem, just something I thought of.) Can anyone help, please?

Hi,

The problem is that iTunes songs only work with iPods. If you pay extra, they will now let you download them in a format compatible with other players but I don't recommend using iTunes (or anything from Apple for that matter). Try Amazon MP3. The songs downloaded from there will work with any player under the sun and they're generally cheaper than iTunes. Here is the link:

You can use either Rhapsody or Windows Media Player to sync the files to your device.

I had the same problem. In the end I reformatted the e200. To reformat hook up to your pc and there should be a reformat option on the e200 icon.

Make sure the date/time settings on your player are accurate. Mine got reset to last year and it was thinking that my subscription was expired when it wasn't.

Hi, How to Download Music to the Philips GoGear

The Philips GoGear Micro Jukebox is a portable MP3 player that plays MP3 files and WMA files and also displays photos. Download music, copy it to the GoGear player and enjoy your tunes everywhere you go.

Things You'll Need:

* Philips GoGear and USB cable
* Internet connection
* Online music download service
* Secure method of making online payments
* Windows Media Player software


Download music in MP3 or WMA formats. You can buy songs from many online sources. If you choose to buy from iTunes, be aware that you will need to convert them from the native iTunes format to MP3 files. The iTunes software will do this for you.

Import the songs to your Windows Media Player Library if they are not already there. Windows Media Player can be set to check for new files in certain folders each time it launches, so this might happen automatically.
.
Connect the Philips GoGear device to your computer with the USB cable and click on the "Sync" tab in Windows Media Player. Drag songs you want to copy to the "Sync list" on the right-hand side of the Windows Media Player window.

Click on the "Start Sync" button at the bottom of the list pane when you have all of the songs on the list. You should be able to check at the top of the list pane to see how much space is available on your MP3 player in order to make sure you have enough room.

Wait while the files transfer and then disconnect the player from your computer. You may have to click on "Safely Remove Hardware" in your system tray (usually on the bottom right corner of the screen) depending on your computer.

Have a nice day..

I don't have the installation cd's for my philips gogear hdd1830


You must use Windows Media Player 10 to transfer and delete music - the newest version, Windows Media Player 11, will not work with the Philips HDD Series of GoGear.

You can get all necessary software by going to:

Cannot sync photos WMP 11 to Philips gogear


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

Can not download music


Try repairing the device before performing the firmware upgrade:
Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).
