I've just purchased the product and installed all the software. All the player does when connected is blink with the message screen "Ok to disconnect" over and over. The PC does not detect any attached device and neither does the software.
I have a feeling that this might be because this is the first time charging the battery of the player but it seems odd that the computer detects nothing at all. The user manual didn't mention what the player screen should show upon first connection or anything about the image blinking.
I've made sure the cable is connected properly and my computer specs are suitable for the player/software.

Re: Problem with player PC connectivity
Warning - this will work, but it will erase all your songs, so that they will have to be reloaded: Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear: Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off.Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab.Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions. After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again. -Tha Mp3 Doctor

Your GoGear is likely in MTP connection mode, which requires proprietary drivers to connect. If you are trying to connect it as a standard mass storage device, switch the player to MSC connection mode. To do this, select "PC connection preference" in the Settings menu.
As an alternative, I recommend using the the Philips Songbird software that came with the device. This software is useful for automatically converting most media files to GoGear friendly format during synchronization. And, installing this software will also install drivers necessary for connecting the device in MTP connection mode. More importantly, when your corruption prone GoGear gets the familiar "file system error" screen, the software can be used to repair it.
Does it attempt to connect to Microsoft's servers to verify the key?
Are there any messages or errors? I've seen this happen on occasion,
try calling their activation number 888-571-2048 to reactivate.

I would suggest attempting a Repair by following the below instructions. This process simultaneously updates firmware as well as returns your product to factory settings. Let me know if this helps by rating/commenting this solution!
You can also access the Product Support site here:
Your player might hang up. Use a pen tip or other sharp object to insert the RESET hole gently on the side of the player and connect it again to your PC.
If it is still not recognized, your player may be at fault. Try the Philips Device Manager software.
NOTE: Contents will be removed by using the repair function.
Install the Philips Device Manager and run it with your player connected to your PC. You can download it under the Software & drivers section.
Click the Repair tab in the Device Manager, press and hold the corresponding recovery key on the player when connecting it to your PC.
Follow the PC screen to recover your player.
You can find the recovery key on your player from the below table.
Maps of Europe for Garmin GPS devices can be purchased on line. You'll need a USB cable to connect the Garmin to your computer. Then, with the USB cable connected, go to http://www.garmin.com
On the web site, first register your product. Then look for "Support" and follow their instructions for updating your software. (Software updates are free.) After you've done that, look for "Maps" on the menu at the top of the
screen. By the way, maps are huge files, so plan on the map download and installation taking several hours or maybe even overnight to update your maps even if you have a fast internet connection.
HI. You will need to purchase a linking USB cable from the apple store that is designed for your unit. You may be able to purchase the cable from any electronics store, but I prefer to get it from the apple store, if possible. Once you have purchased the linking cable, simply connect one end to the device and the other end of the USB linking cable to the PC. Once the two are connected, the PC will notice the device and try to install the appropriate native software drivers for the unit to operate properly when connected to the PC. If that installation fails, you will need to install the appropriate software drivers need for your Pod unit. I tunes software will work just fine. Once the drivers are active, then you can transfer and upload media as you choose.
by default, you have a music player installed on your system or maybe using windows media player before nero 7 was installed, unluckily, when you did installed your nero 7 it has it's own music player. by the time nero finishes the installation, nero prompts you what media types you are using, by default, nero had selected it's own files types...thats why your music compilation and playlist messed up.
in order to get things back, just right click any music files you have, go to properties, click change for types of file then select the application you want play with your music.
