Question about Philips GoGear SA5285/37 Digital Media Player
It keeps saying error. i just got it today. all right format, but won't transfer
I recommend trying the Philips Songbird software. If you do not have Songbird, download it for Windows or Mac here:http://www.usa.philips.com/c/mp3-media-player/22126/cat/en/#/difference/philipssongbird.
If your device says "File System Error", you can launch Songbird and select "Repair my Philips device" in the Tools menu. Select your device and follow the instructions specific to your device. For example, instructions for the GoGear Vibe are to disconnect the device, power it down completely, and hold the volume-up key during and after USB connection until the message window disappears.
If the repair utility endlessly indicates it is checking for updates, you are likely using an out-of-date version of Songbird - probably the one that came with your GoGear. If this describes your situation, launch Songbird and select "Check for updates" in the Help menu. This will at least get you upgraded to version 1.9 (currently), even though the latest version is 1.11 (currently).
Instructions that came with some older versions for connecting GoGear in repair mode were incomplete. They left out a crucial step of turning off the GoGear and waiting for it to power down completely before reconnecting in repair mode. Newer versions of Songbird include the ability to reformat the device, reset the device, and to get progress updates during synchronization.
If you've found this information helpful, please indicate as such.

They are NOT in the right format. You are mistaken. I have a funny, but true story to tell you. Philips co-branded this player with Rhapsody. But, then they made their player incompatible with Rhapsody's DRM system. They only way to get songs from Rhapsody onto this particular player is to download them from Rhapsody's Mp3 Store - make sure the files are in Mp3 format. Then it will recognize the songs.
