    I have now been informed by Philips tecnical people that the Firmwear on my MP3 does not support Window Media 11 and i should roll back to WM 10. I have done this and the problem has been resolved.

    Philips said they would not update the Firmwear on this model (SA255/00). because it's an early version.



    So much for Philips customer relations! Tossers!

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..

How can you listen to music


First, you will have to transfer the music to the mp3 player. You can transfer music and pictures to your player using Windows Media Player. YOu can download it from here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/windows-media-player

Once you have installed WMP, reboot and plug your mp3 player. By default, Windows Media Player automatically loads all the music and picture files stored in your My Music and My Pictures folders into the library. If you add new files to these folders, they will also be automatically added to the library. Then you will have to synchronize your mp3s player with WMP.
You can sync your music and pictures to your player using Windows Media Player. Simply connect your player to your computer using the supplied USB cable, set up sync, and you will be ready to sync your media library to the player. When you connect your player to the computer for the first time, Windows Media Player automatically selects the sync method (automatic or manual) that works best for your player. Automatic: If your player has sufficient storage space (at least 4GB of free space) and your entire media library can fit on your player, your entire media library will be automatically copied to your player as soon as you connect it to your computer. Manual: If your entire media library cannot fit on the player, then you will be prompted to manually select specific files or playlists that you want to transfer to your player.
Once you have transfer the music you want-unplug the player from the computer and that's it. If you have more doubts, you can download the manual from here:

Problem in files downloading onto GoGear SA5125


Subscribe to an online music service that is compatible with your GoGear, such as Rhapsody's Mp3-Only service - I repeat MP3 ONLY - no other Rhapsody service will work.

Use Windows Media Player to transfer songs to your GoGear, or Rip CD's into Mp3 format - I repeat MP3 FORMAT - using Windows Media Player.

Videos must be transferred using the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter that came on the installation CD. You can also get this program from Philips website.

You will only be able to transfer photos to your GoGear if you have used the installation CD that came with the player. It contains a critical file that Philips has never posted to their website called the Philips Device Plug-In.
