Question about Philips GoGear HDD6330 MP3 Player
So I plug it in to charge it, and it turns on like its gonna work properly, but instead it shows the Philips screen then the GoGear screen but that is it, it does not go any further than that, almost like it freezes at this point. Does it need a battery change or has my mp3 player just gone bad? Any help would be great.
If your GoGear really is an HDD model, then it is incompatible with both Vista and Windows Media Player 11. If you have Vista, forget about this player. If you have XP, roll back your Windows Media Player to version 10 and try running a Repair in Philips Device Manager - the damage might already be done, but it is worth a shot.
If you have an SA model GoGear, get the latest Philips Device Manager from www.usasupport.philips.com. Make sure you enter your correct model # in the website, or you will damage your player. Run an Update in the updated Philips Device Manager to upgrade the firmware to fix the freezing issue. Philips has a weird quirk that if you want to really upgrade the firmware, you have to also update the Philips Device Manager first or the Device Manager from the CD will give you a false positive: "Your device is already up to date."

Tips for a great answer:
Reset your GoGear with something sharp like the tip of a pen or the end of a paper clip,
if you're device isn't working properly or there's a frozen display.
Insert the sharp object into the "Reset" hole (located at the bottom of the player), and hold it there until the device turns off.
If resetting the device does nothing to restore the display, access the "Philips Device Manager" through your computer to recover the GoGear.
Click "Start" on your computer, then "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Aria Device Manager," and then "Philips Device Manager."
This will launch the "Philips Device Manager." Make sure the GoGear is turned off completely. Connect your GoGear to your computer while holding down the "Volume Up" button.
Continue to hold the "Volume Up" button on your GoGear, until the "Philips Device Manager" recognizes the device and enters recovery mode.
Click the "Repair" button when it appears on your computer, then folow the steps to fully recover the GoGear.
Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer and restart the device.
Recharge your device if your GoGear dies suddenly while playing.
Connect the GoGear to your computer via the supplied USB cord.
Plug one end of the USB cord into a functional, open USB port on your computer. Plug the free, smaller end of the USB cord firmly into the small USB jack on your GoGear and turn your computer on.
This will begin the charging process of your GoGear.
If recharging doesn't work, the battery may need to be replaced.
Check that your GoGear isn't in standby mode. Hold the "Power" button for two seconds to turn it back on.
hope this helps
