    My Philips Gogear freezes too. I wonder if there is an update to the software, can Philips also supply me with a way to add different playlists, and name my music, are there dowloadable programs for the internal hard drive on the mp3 player..?

I think windows vista / windows 7 solves this issue pretty well.. i had the same issue..

"sayin something like... use device manager and repair your GoGear "

but i cleared this issue so simple in windows vista / windows 7

First Reset the System.

don't install the software that comes with the player to PC, just connect the device as a "Mass Storage Device"

U can easily format the Player drive so easily, than u can do that in XP no more :( , Vista / 7 Formats in seconds.

this is as simple as it is.

Trust me , it worked in my very first try on Vista.

Regards,

Cruise.

I have a phillips go gear MP3 player and when i turn it on it freezes only the words www.phillips/welcome.com screens shows. how to i fix this?


Hello

Your GoGear is freezing because there is an error in the operating system and can be fixed by resetting the device. Resetting the GoGear is similar to rebooting your computer. You will not lose any of the data uploaded to the device. To reset the GoGear, press the "Reset" button located on the left of the device. The screen will go blank for a few seconds and then turn back on.

If the GoGear freezes after uploading a file to the device or if one song or sound file freezes the device each time you play it, the file is likely corrupt and needs to be removed from the GoGear. Connect the GoGear to a computer and delete the file from the device.

Tunes that it said was in player but wont play


The Philips GoGear's are not compatible with iTunes. You need to download mp3 files or files that are in UNprotected WMA format into the player using Windows Media Player, or else the player will not recognize them.

Philips GoGear Glitch


Make sure that there is available memory. If there is, then you will need to do a firmware upgrade and reload the songs onto the player. If you already have the latest firmware, then you will need to reformat the player either in Windows Media Player or the computer. If that fails, use the repair function in the Philips Device Manager.

It freezes up and wont read


Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).
