The problem is not so much that iTunes will not recognize the player - your player is incapable of playing iTunes songs right now. I know there is some horse manure on the specs about that player being compatible with AAC, but until Apple eliminates their copy protection system (may be months away), this player cannot play protected AAC files. Sorry.

My apple iPod shuffle appears in Windows but not in iTunes


Here's how I fixed it:

I downloaded iTunes & Quicktime.

I then uninstalled all the Apple applications (iTunes, Quicktime, MobileMe, Bonjiour, Updates, etc.).

I had to delete the files in the iTunes folder (iTunes Library.itl, iTunes Library Extras.itdb, iTunes Library Genius.itdb, and iTunes Music Library.xml). I don't know if I needed to delete all of them, but I know that the the iTunes Library.itl file is definitely a problem. When I upgraded to 8.2, it updated this file and essentially forced me to delete it and rebuild my music library. This is where my files were located:

C:\Users\USERNAME\Music\iTunes

Also, remember to reboot your PC after all of the uninstalls. I also reset my iPod Touch (not a restore, as the above helped me avoid this, so I did not loose the data on the iPod Touch... though I did have to rebuild the music library.

It was a pain, but certainly worth it to hook up my iPod Touch and have instant connectivity. I don't think I forgot anything, but these are the key things.

One last bit of advice... back up all of your data before you begin, so you can restore the data and music and data.

I got a GoGear RaGa 4GB MP3 player recently and have just purchased a song from itunes. How do I get it from my computer to the MP3 player


Apple (and thus iTunes) uses a proprietary format (AAC format, not MP3) and iTunes is designed specifically to work with iPods and other Apple products.

This being said, my guess is that either your GoGear is not compatible with AAC format that you downloaded from iTunes, OR if it IS compatible with the format, it could be that iTunes does not recognize it as a device.

Either way, I would use another music library application (Windows Media Player, MediaMonkey, WinAmp, Amarok, or Songbird, to name a few) One of these may be better at recognizing your GoGear player than iTunes.

Then, if your GoGear does not support the AAC format from the iTunes store, you will want to use a converter to create an MP3 file (you can do this from inside the iTunes application, or get some thing like a media converter found here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/bonkenc/)

You could use these to convert the files to MP3 and then you should be able to transfer them to your player.

Because of the incompatibility and proprietary nature of Apple, you may want to avoid iTunes unless you have an iPod

I can't use my itunes account to add or subtract my music, since adding the gogearVibe. had the same set up approx. 5 months ago with a different unit that worked fine. What happened?


You need to use the Philips songbird software to transfer itunes music into your MP3 player. If your player doesn't use Songbird, you need to first convert it into MP3 format under itunes then transfer using windows media player 11 or higher.

Here is how ot import files from itunes to Songbird:
  1. On the computer, launch the Songbird program. Select Tools > Options
  2. On the Songbird toolbar, select the Media Importer tab, then iTunes Import/Export.
  3. Verify your library location and options. Select Import Library.
  4. The software imports the iTunes library into Songbird.
Once this is done, your itunes music will show in Songbird library. You can now transfer it to your GoGear player. Here is how to transfer files from songbird to your MP3 player:
  1. Click "File" in the toolbar and select "Import Media". Choose the folder that stored your media files.
  2. Select the media files that you want to transfer and then Right Click to display a drop list (You can press and hold the Ctrl button on the keyboard to select more than one file).
  3. Select "Add to Device" and "(Your player model)".
Or you can to go to Songbird library and then drag and drop the files to your MP3 player's icon on the Songbird software.

Hope this helps..

Hi, How to Download Music to the Philips GoGear

The Philips GoGear Micro Jukebox is a portable MP3 player that plays MP3 files and WMA files and also displays photos. Download music, copy it to the GoGear player and enjoy your tunes everywhere you go.

Things You'll Need:

* Philips GoGear and USB cable
* Internet connection
* Online music download service
* Secure method of making online payments
* Windows Media Player software


Download music in MP3 or WMA formats. You can buy songs from many online sources. If you choose to buy from iTunes, be aware that you will need to convert them from the native iTunes format to MP3 files. The iTunes software will do this for you.

Import the songs to your Windows Media Player Library if they are not already there. Windows Media Player can be set to check for new files in certain folders each time it launches, so this might happen automatically.
.
Connect the Philips GoGear device to your computer with the USB cable and click on the "Sync" tab in Windows Media Player. Drag songs you want to copy to the "Sync list" on the right-hand side of the Windows Media Player window.

Click on the "Start Sync" button at the bottom of the list pane when you have all of the songs on the list. You should be able to check at the top of the list pane to see how much space is available on your MP3 player in order to make sure you have enough room.

Wait while the files transfer and then disconnect the player from your computer. You may have to click on "Safely Remove Hardware" in your system tray (usually on the bottom right corner of the screen) depending on your computer.

Have a nice day..

Philips GoGear SA3245 (4 GB) Digital Media Player Can I download songs form I Tunes to this device?


You can download music for the GoGear from any reputable website, iTunes. it is just a case of plugging in the USB cable, go to My Computer and Look for the Philips Removable Drive.

open it up, go to the Music Folder and add your MP3 songs.

To add videos to this player you need to use the software Philips provided. It's a bit complicated to use so follow the instructions carefully. The software will convert the videos to a Philips format to enable you to add them to the Video Folder. You can't just add a file as this will not work, it needs to be converted.
Hope this helps you.

I guess I'm a bit technically challenged. I


if the music is downloaded onto your computer it should be able to be imported into the iTunes library. just go to file in the upper left hand corner in the iTunes library and in the down menu go to add file to library, or add folder, whichever your music is in. then if the music shows in the iTunes library plug in your iPod and see if it shows up in the iTunes menu. if it does click on the icon and in the bottom right hand corner click sync. good luck!

How to use iTunes with a Philips GoGear MP3 player?


You have to convert the file from an aspple/aac audio file to an mp3 file. The easiest way to do this is to download a free audio/video converter like format factory from download.com, and you can easily convert the files to mp3's very quickly. You also have to be sure that your apple tracks are DRM free.

Can't get itunes to download to my Phillips GO GEAR MP3


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.
