Connect your Go Gear to the computer
Open the Philips Device Manager - it came on the installation CD
Click on the Repair tab and follow the instructions

When in doubt, follow directions.

Take music from go gear to my hard drive ?


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.
Good Luck

Computer not reconzinig go gear


Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

My mp3 player wont play anything


hmmm, that means that you may have synched some songs that are not fully compatible with your go-gear. although it is still mp3, it may have some "codecs" issues with it. and thus making your go gear crazy. what you can do is delete all the songs you have there, and make a fresh start from scratch, that way, you'll know.

Unable to play new songs added to MP3 player


Wal mart downloads are notorious for not working with subscription devices (i.e. - devices that use rhapsody, or yahoo.).

You have 2 options;

 1) dont use any music from wal-mart

 2) burn the music to a cd, the re-rip them to your PC, thusly removing any copy protection and then re-transfer them to your device.





Best of Luck.
