Can't get itunes to download to my Phillips GO GEAR MP3
I have music on itunes & I cannot figure out how to download them to my GoGear. I noticed that the songs from itunes were MPEG files, the songs on my GoGear are WMP files(I think). How do I convert them to the right kind of file? Would that be my problem? They are the wrong kind of files? Thank you!
Re: Can't get itunes to download to my Phillips GO GEAR...
Your formating for your songs are fine. The Phillps GoGear uses mpeg as well as long as they are not AAC formating. You need to open Windows Media Player and click on the Library tab and then Add to Library. I'd recommend using the advanced tab when the window pops up. You can then tell WMP exactally where the songs are at in the itunes folder. You'll want to find out where they are at first. It should load them onto WMP from there and then you can move them to you GoGear. Enjoy.

No. As the music in iTunes is encrypted with DRM, you cannot directly put it on any non-Apple MP3 player. The easiest way is to burn the music to an audio CD and then rip it back to Windows Media Player or a similar program as an MP3. Or you can get some software to help you. I use TuneClone to do this. Though not free, it is very well worth a try. If you need further assistance, or further questions, just leave a comment.Cheers
The GoGear SA 6045 is not compatible with iTunes. As iTunes moves toward DRM-free music, there are a few GoGear models that will work with it, but the SA6045 is not one of them. iTunes format is also known as AAC format. There are no GoGear's that are compatible with DRM-protected AAC format, but a few are compatible with DRM-free AAC's. Sorry.
You will have to find songs that are in Mp3 format from a different music service (or from CD).
Philips GoGear is NOT compatible with iTunes - sorry. You will have to convert those AAC files from iTunes to Mp3 format in order to load them onto the GoGear. Try using Media Monkey to convert them - not guaranteed to work, but worth a shot (and it's free). Sorry if the guy at the store told you something different, but they generally just guess/don't actually know the answer.
