Re: Write-protection

Try this link - they have udated drivers for your player, which hopefully will solve the problem; Otherwise I would try and reformat your player (usually right-click on the player in "My Computer" should give you this option. In "My computer" open the player and if the songs you are trying to delete are shown, then you may be able to just drag them to the recycle bin. worth a try. Hope it helps if not please post again :)

Can't delete write protected files

Try this method to delete your write protected files

Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio Books, etc. from MP3 Player
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal
Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on
"Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that
you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want,
release, right click and then click on "Delete"
Now your mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Be careful and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player.

I cannot download any music to my GPX 3847 MP3 Player:

There are free converters, convert it to mp4 or wmp,
and back to mp3, a lot of times converting removes
the sig. just google mp3 converter.

Messed up songs

Whatever you do, don't delete the whole folder - it will permanently mess up your GoGear. Here's what I would do: run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager OR update the firmware on the player if it won't let you do the repair - the reason that I am suggesting this is that it will delete all of the music files off your GoGear so that you can start over from scratch, as a side effect. Once everything is deleted, change the Rip format in Windows Media Player to Mp3 - it will not give you special options like read-only, etc. Then, re-rip the CD's and load the mp3 files onto the GoGear.

Good luck!

Loading protected songs onto MP3 player

What I would recommend you to do is to delete the songs that are not playing for the device then transfer them back...Your SanDisk Sansa does not allow you to delete files from within the player.
Instead I recommend that you follow the steps below to delete the music
You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there.
Either under sync panel in your windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete.
Hope this helps

P.S.Please rate accordingly...
Thank You

Press and hold [PLAY/PAUSE] on the player whilst connecting to the PC.

This will format the player and replace the firmware.

Playing a song?

Did you use your own cd's? If so, did you use Windows Media Player to copy (rip) them to your computer? Windows Media Player, by default, has "copy protect my music" selected. To remove this, in Windows Media Player select Tools>Options>Rip Music and un-check the copy protect my music mark. You will need to delete the music you already transferred, then re-copy the music without protection, then re-transfer them to your device. Best of Luck.
