Question about Philips GoGear Flash MP3 Player

1 Answer

Philips go gear mp4 sa3245/02

Wma files syncronised from windows media player for which i have paid for and am entitled to syncronise are not playable as error message comes up on mp4 player "file format not supported"

As far as i can tell many others are having similar problems with this player. the philips web site is hopeless and very very slow.

This was a present for my daughter but it seems i may have to return it to philips as it is not working

The player is not defective. The older Philips players recognized DRM-encrypted WMA's - the newer Philips players do not. You have to get Rhapsody's Mp3 only service - I repeat, MP3 ONLY. No other level of Rhapsody service will work with the newer Philips' GoGear's - which is funny, b/c Philips co-branded with Rhapsody on the newer players. Rhapsody's Mp3 Only is not the only choice you have - but the key is only to transfer songs that are in mp3 or NONPROTECTED WMA format (non-protected wma's are not purchased songs, but songs ripped in the right way from CD).

Cant get mine to work red flashing light


Had the exact same problem.
Go into the Coby media manager.
Click Music.
When the list of songs comes up, right click on a song and then click syncronise.
do that for each song.
That wouls syncronise the songs to your player.
it worked for me!!!

IRiver H10 is full of photos from "My Pictures". Don't know why they syncronised and can't delete them


Disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player - Microsoft's website explains it far better than I can

Open Windows Media Player WITH the mp3 player connected
Highlight Sync, click on the arrow to bring down drop-dow menu
Select Set Up Sync
Uncheck box that says "automatically sync files to device"

Voila!

I can't find music files


What format did you rip it to? Is it supported by the player. Try converting the files to mp3 then adding them.
