What OS are you using?
I know that it is not fully compatible in Vista.
1) Try using an XP machine and plug it in there, in any case, reformat the MP3 player using FAT.

2) Try uninstalling all software for your MP3 player from your PC and reinstalling it.

3) Here is something else you might want to try:
Try doing a soft reset.
  1. Press and hold the Power On/Off key and the Volume + key for a couple of seconds.
  2. Then switch on the GoGear using the Power On/Off key.
This is soft reset, your songs will not be lost.


4) If all else fails, it's time for a factory reset:

  1. Connect the GoGear to the AC adapter and to your computer.
  2. Make sure all other applications such as Philips Plug-in, Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer that access the device are closed or else Device Manager will not recognize the device. Launch the Device Manager at Start->Programs->Philips Device Manager->Philips Device Manager on your PC.
  3. Select the REPAIR tab on the dialogue box and then click "Repair" to start repairing.

    IMPORTANT: All music & content of your micro jukebox will be erased once the repair function completes. 051028091949_1746.gif 051028091949_1747.gif
  4. When repair is complete a dialogue box will pop up; click "OK" and unplug the GoGear from the computer. 051028091949_1748.gif
  5. Follow all the on-screen instructions to complete the repair.
  6. The Device Manager will close automatically once the success message is displayed. Close all opened applications and then unplug your GoGear.
  7. Once the GoGear is disconnected from the computer, the display will show “Firmware Upgrading” for a couple of seconds and then start up as usual.
Hope That Helps!

My philips gogear vibe wont turn on


Reset your GoGear with something sharp like the tip of a pen or the end of a paper clip,

if you're device isn't working properly or there's a frozen display.


Insert the sharp object into the "Reset" hole (located at the bottom of the player), and hold it there until the device turns off.


If resetting the device does nothing to restore the display, access the "Philips Device Manager" through your computer to recover the GoGear.


Click "Start" on your computer, then "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Aria Device Manager," and then "Philips Device Manager."


This will launch the "Philips Device Manager." Make sure the GoGear is turned off completely. Connect your GoGear to your computer while holding down the "Volume Up" button.


Continue to hold the "Volume Up" button on your GoGear, until the "Philips Device Manager" recognizes the device and enters recovery mode.


Click the "Repair" button when it appears on your computer, then folow the steps to fully recover the GoGear.


Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer and restart the device.


Recharge your device if your GoGear dies suddenly while playing.

Connect the GoGear to your computer via the supplied USB cord.


Plug one end of the USB cord into a functional, open USB port on your computer. Plug the free, smaller end of the USB cord firmly into the small USB jack on your GoGear and turn your computer on.

This will begin the charging process of your GoGear.


If recharging doesn't work, the battery may need to be replaced.

Check that your GoGear isn't in standby mode. Hold the "Power" button for two seconds to turn it back on.


hope this helps

Hundred of problems!!


Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and click on the “Repair” tab. Then click on the “Repair” button to start the repair process. Most of the time, when your player is in that state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged in. If this is the case: Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.
