How do I download songs onto my phillips gogear cam


  • Charge your Philips GoGear ViBE for at least three hours before turning it on.
  • 2 Insert the small end of your mini USB cable into your GoGear ViBE. Insert the other end of this cable into one of your computer's USB ports. Turn your GoGear ViBE on by pressing and holding the "Power" button for two seconds.
  • 3 Insert the Philips GoGear ViBE software disc into your computer's CD-ROM drive. Follow the onscreen prompts to install it.
  • 4 Open "Computer" from the "Start" menu and locate the GoViBE icon to make sure it has been successfully connected to your computer.
  • 5 Navigate to your music files. If you're unsure about their location, start by looking in the "Music" folder under the "Start" menu.
  • 6 Drag and drop your music files from their folder onto the GoViBE icon in your "Computer" window.
  • 7 Right-click the USB icon with the green arrow, located in your taskbar, to disconnect your device. Click "Safely Remove hardware," then wait until your computer confirms that it's safe to remove the device. Disconnect the USB cable from both your computer and your GoGear ViBE.
  • 8 Select the musical note icon from the main menu of your GoGear ViBE to open your music files. Navigate to the sub-folders section, and select a song from either the artist, album, track list or genre. Press the "Play/Pause" button to begin playing a song

I want to download philips gogear software for pc


Hello.
Welcome To Fixya DIY Community^^
Its my pleasure to help You solving this Problem.

Its obvious that after the installation of a new Windows XP version in your computer, The GoGear Won't operate as usual Because it's missing drivers and the Music downloading utility in the computer Interface.
  • Now you should install the Drivers To Solve this Problem.
You can Download Drivers and utilities from the link below:
Aditional Support:

--ask me if you need any further info. i am always available.^^


*do not use te software upgrade utility, install only the necessary drivers for your MP3 Player.
the upgrade utility is useful when the firmware of Your MP3 player is corrupted or defective.

My phlips gogear will not turn even when i plug it in


try holding the up volume button and the power button until it powers up and see if that makes any difference for you.

if not the device may have a corrupt board as many other GoGear products similar to this one have the same problems

How do u download music for your mp3 player im new to this :(


Subscribe to an online music service that is compatible with your GoGear, such as Rhapsody's Mp3-Only service - I repeat MP3 ONLY - no other Rhapsody service will work.

Use Windows Media Player to transfer songs to your GoGear, or Rip CD's into Mp3 format - I repeat MP3 FORMAT - using Windows Media Player.

Videos must be transferred using the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter that came on the installation CD. You can also get this program from Philips website.

You will only be able to transfer photos to your GoGear if you have used the installation CD that came with the player. It contains a critical file that Philips has never posted to their website called the Philips Device Plug-In.

Save music


All Philips Go Gear prefer specific music players, Like yahoo Jukebox. If your player did not come with a disk, I would suggest downloading the Jukebox player and then pluging in our player.

Yahoo will find your player and sync all your music..

Use a small papaerclip, pin, or other device and insert it into the reset hole until the GoGear shuts off. You may have to download the more recent version of the software for the device at www.usasupport.philips.com even after doing the reset.

Plilips GoGear wont download music, says its out of date


My friend, I had the same problem. I however never use jukebox but I do have Windows Media Player 11 and I could see the songs being sent to the device. Even when I opened the device files on the pc the music was there. But when unplugging the USB and turning the actual mp3 player on, there was NO music on there. What I did is go on Philips.com and start researching away. I did rollback to the older version of Media player (10) by simply going to add/remove programs and following Phillips' own instructions. Also I thought it would be a good idea to download the most recent updated info Philips had for this device, like a driver or firmware they call it. Everything worked after that. I had no owners manual also, since I bought this MP3 from my barber at his shop after he got a new IPOD. SO I downloaded the owners manual and all additional info online at their website. Hope this helped. It wasn't easy but you just have to read. Also, it did take a while , good luck............RKALAWALA
