You need to connect the player to a computer using an USB cable. The player will be seen by the computer as an external hard drive. Use the operative system features (e.g. file copy and paste) to transfer multimedia files onto your player.
Yon need to convert your CDs to MP3 and then copy and paste these MP3 files to your GoGear. 1st - You need to convert your CDs to MP3 music files. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. There are also Freeware CD RIP programs on the Internet that can create music title and album folders automatically. OR Download MP3 music files from the Internet, some sites will cost money to download these music files.
2nd - connect your MP3 player to your computer using the supplied USB cable. The computer will see this player as an external storage device, Just copy the MP3 music files from the computer's hard disk to the MP3 player.
NOTE - When the USB cable is connected to the computer, it will also charge the MP3 player's battery.
The GoGear allows you to make voice or FM radio recordings and saves the recordings to the internal memory. The internal memory is limited and the GoGear may show the message "Memory Full" when trying to save recordings. When you receive this message, plug the device into the computer and delete any extraneous files or files you no longer want to keep on your device. This will free up memory so you can save more recordings or place additional music files on the GoGear.
I recommend you to reset your device If the solution above didn't solve the problem :.
Take a small object like a paper clip and use the edge to stick into the small reset button on the side next to the usb connection .
Or Try [ power + volume up button & hold for 3 seconds ]
Your mp3 player has two types of memory in it. The hard drive (where the music and photos are stored) and the Ram (where the firmware and active files are temporarily hosted).
When you soft reset your GoGear, it flushes the RAM, and restarts the operating system (which is why the contents of the hard drive does not get erased).
You can "hard reset" the device, by formatting the drive and resetting it to factory defaults in the Settings field. This is the closest thing to a "hard reset: that's available with an HD based MP3 player.
Reset the player by holding the off-switch and the
volume-+ (plus) switch., and as soon as the player shuts off, press and
hold the volume- - (minus) switch. The computer will see the gogear as a removable hard-drive now, so you can copy/paste music to the music folder. Though the drive might be recognized by Vista, even with the media player running I wasn't able to load music on the player. The files were on the player, as the computer showed, but the player couldn't see them. Only for winXP!
u need a new 20gb...is ur ipod full with song? not working correctly? my suggestion is this (if you are willing) plug the ipod to pc....itunes will pop up...(make sure all video,photos and music is saved in itunes by syncing it).now x out of itunes...go to my computer open the ipod drive and copy software and hidden software to your pc (do not rename any part of this)....software is copied, format the ipod drive (yes you wish to erase it)...format is complete...now copy the software back on to ipod from pc.......go to start or click on itunes icon to open itunes....if ipod not found in 30-45 seconds disconnect the ipod for 10 sec and plug it back to pc..add your photos/video/music back to ipod...its working like brand new
you need to douwnload window media 11 ,to do this you need windows authentic copie , i know i have one me too i cant do it on my pc cause i have windows copie so i use my sun pc brand new and it ok ! let me know !!!
Just use it as usb flash drive. Connect it through USB port. If it is first time it will take a while to finish the installation. Wait until message Device installed and ready to use will pop up. After that go My computer.... find the Philips go gear. Double click will open folder. Just browse it to find the songs (might be separate folder Songs or Audio). Copy them and paste them on desktop of your computer or any othe folder.
If you do this through itunes, it should be okay. The trouble is everytime you want to update your ipod, you will need to connect it with itunes and itunes will need to have your existing library that you created for you ipod to perform a quick and troublefree update.
If you are going to get an external harddrive you will need to re-direct where itunes is saving your music and video files. Because itunes will be using your internal harddrive for the system files (that is where windows is), it will automatically save the music to your internal drive. I suggest reloding an updated version of itunes from http://www.apple.com/itunes/ here and when asked where to install it, redirect it from C:programfiles.......to your external harddrive. This way the itunes music folder will be on your external harddrive.
Omg, none of the b*%#&#@ in costumer support was able to help me out and I know it could be frustrating.
