Your problem is too complex to handle in one post, most likely.
Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged.
Try a different USB port.
Update the firmware using the latest version of Philips Device Manager.
Download the Windows MTP Porting Kit.

If all of those methods fail, write me back.

Phillips Gogear SA5285/37 is frozen


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.

Phillips GoGear Problem


Run the Philips Device Manager and select Update. If the device manager won't recognize the player, unplug the GoGear, hold in either the shuffle button or volume + and reconnect the GoGear to the computer until a Found New Hardware Wizard window pops up.

MP3 won't turn on


Reset the player by inserting a paerlcip into the reset hole. If that fails, go to Philips' website and upgrade the firmware on your player to solve the freezing issue permanently. Actually, don't go to Philips website - run the Philips Device Manager and select Update. If the device manager won't recognize the player, unplug the GoGear, hold in either the shuffle button or volume + and reconnect it to the computer until a Found New Hardware Wizard window pops up.

CANNOT DOWNLOAD VIDEOS ON MY PHILIPS SA5285/37 PLAYER


You must use the Philips (Arcosft) Media Converter to convert the videos. The program cannot recognize FLV files, so you will need to get a free program called Riva FLV Encoder to convert the FLV's to AVI first. Then the Philips Media Converter will recognize the files.
