Question about Philips GoGear Flash MP3 Player

1 Answer

We can't download music from our computer to the GoGear

We have several CD's downloaded in Windows Media Player that we have previously downloaded on other MP3 players and had no problem with. Our youngest son got this for Christmas and we went to download the same CD's for him and it pops up file not formatted. This
has been a very big dissapointment for our son who now believes that
Santa gives stuff that is defective. We have unfortunately thrown away the box and can not return it which is what I would like to do. We tried calling your tech support people to see if they could help and we got some smart alec who was of no use to us.

Here's what you want to do. Use Windows Media Player to re-Rip the CD's in Mp3 format. Go to Windows Media Player 11 --> Rip --> Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3 (you can get to Rip options by moving the mouse over the Rip tab, and a small black arrow will appear - click on the arrow).

Once the songs are in true mp3 format, you can then use the Sync tab in Windows Media Player to transfer the songs.

Unfortunately, many of the newer Philips players do not recognize DRM-encryption, which is why the songs would have worked in one player and not this one.

Problem in files downloading onto GoGear SA5125


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.
