There is a good chance that either a) the songs you are trying to add are not really in mp3 format, or b) the sample rate/bit rate of the mp3-format songs is too high for that player.

The songs that you are playing may be either in AAC (iTunes) format - which is not supported by the player - or they are DRM-encrypted. If you really do have an SA6045, the player can definitely handle DRM encrypted-WMA's. If you have a newer Philips - different model # - then the player may not support DRM-encrypted files. The best thing to do is to download songs (or convert songs from CD as the other helper suggested) that are in pure mp3 format. Examples of services that do this are Rhapsody's Mp3-only Subscription (other Rhapsody subscriptions are DRM-encrypted, which will not work); or Limewire (make sure the format you are downloading is mp3 and not something else).

Well I tried to add and remove videos, but It doesn't work, How could I add video to my GoGear 4Gb?


Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses.

"fille system error"


If it is a certain file, or a group of files, i would delete all audio from the media player, and read the system handbook, to see all compatible files, and buy a converter to convert them the the right file format. some converters are AVI, which I would recommend. When i bought it, it was around $20. Most likely you Mp3 plays (besides MP3 format) a windows media player format, since Windows Media Player even has a sync button to download songs quickly to your audio device. If your files were in the right format, then they might have been corrupted, or invalid, meaning they had information missing, or they werent correct with the codes. So I would just re-load them.

How/where to download movies


I have a Phillips go Gear myself. You need the media converter for phillips software for it. It takes any file and converts it to a Phillips specific file for your player. The disk came with my player but if you would like to download the software you can find it here: http://www.arcsoft.com/products/mediaconverter/

It wont let me have certain songs


You may have to convert certain files to a different format. It's probably the files that you bought from itunes directly, or ones that got burned in M4A or some other format. Check the info for some of the files and I bet you find a pattern. Then either use iTunes, or an audio converter from Download.com to take back control os you tunes.

Good luck!!

after installing this file, go to your philips media converter and add the videos you wanna convert, and convert it... after that jus copy the converted video files to the "videos" folder in your player....

if you have added any files and still your player doesn't detect it, then make sure you've copied it to the right folder... also check if those files are compatible with your player... sa3125/97 supports mp3, wma, n smv media files... n jpeg images...
