Problem when trying to add songs to albums


try removing all of the other info from the listing, except for the album, artist, and title. This is strange, but if you could tell me what brand it is, then it could be something much simpler.

My mp3 retuns to song 1 ater recharging the battery how can i keep on the last song i was listening to?


Most Mp3 players do not have a method for doing this, although lately I have found one manufacturer that had a firmware update on their website that resolved this issue. Got to your Mp3 manufacturer's website, and look to see if any firmware upgrades are available - check the issues that the firmware upgrade fixes FIRST before proceeding. Also, firmware upgrades generally result in all songs being deleted off the Mp3 player - you will have to re-add the songs.

Good luck!

Three possibilities:
1) You did a firmware upgrade
2) You formatted the player
3) The DB became corrupt, and you will need to either reformat the player or upgrade the firmware

No, there is not a way to recover the deleted songs.

Cant i plug this thing into my xbox 360?


Go ahead and do this, in case the DB is corrupted:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Make sure the songs do not have DRM encryption, and that they are the right format (mp3, wma) for the player.

Go ahead and do this, in case you have Windows Media Player 11, or the DB is corrupted:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

There are a few possible answers:
1)Start simple - disconnect the GoGear from the computer - let it update - then reconnect it to the computer; if this fails, restart your computer and try syncing again

2)You need a firmware upgrade to make the device compatible with your computer: just open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website; click on the update tab

3) The songs have Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection.Try re-downloading the songs without DRM protection.

4) The songs are in a format not recognized by the GoGear. The GoGear, for instance, will not take iTunes files b/c they are AAC format. With MP3 files, the player supports 32 –320kbps. With WMA: 5-192kbps with sampling rate 8.0kHz up to 44.1kHz. Right click the song file, and select "Save As", and then change the format of the song file. Or, redonwload, in the above-said format.
