Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Daughter opened Christmas gift and tried to put her music on the play and mp3 player is not showing up under My Computer. Drivers have been downloaded and player is in a working USB port...does anyone know how I can get this thing charged (battery)? Or just go and return it?
Item has probably been in a shipping container for quite a while and the battery could be defunct.
I suggest you read the instructions and if you are certain they were followed closely and the Mp3 player doesn't work as advertised you should return it.

Make sure you got the one with GoGear docking station instead of the one with Ipod Docking Station.
Here's how to fix the player:
Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.
1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new
Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

i think you should format your mp3 player to Fat32!! that is the best solution, NTFS doesn't support both mp3 & mp4 players
