Re: SA 4010 philips mp3 player
Here's what happened: When you first synced your GoGear to Windows Media Player, you may have set up the automatic sync option. When this option is selected, Windows Media Player will add EVERY song, picture, etc from your Library on your computer to the GoGear. Now, every time you sync you device, it adds every new file from your computer into the GoGear automatically. It will even delete songs from your GoGear that were on there before. Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your GoGear connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portable media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding songs/files you don't want into your player. -Tha Mp3 Doctor

You can call Philips and register the product with them.
This GoGear is not compatible with iTunes.
You will need to use a converter like Media Monkey to convert those iTunes songs (AAC) format into mp3 format (but it will only convert the unprotected songs).
Then you can use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs to your GoGear.
Make sure you have installed the Philips Device Manager from the product CD. This includes the drivers for the SA4010.
File transfer is done using the Sync function of Windows Media Player.
If you have already installed the software, and are trying to transfer songs with Media Player, try the repair or restore option from the Philips Device Manager. This will format and re-flash the firmware on the player.
If the player still won't take your files, make sure you are using .MP3 or .WMA files. The SA4010 will not take any other formats. (such as .AAC)
If you have the correct file type, then the problem may be due to USB driver conflict. Follow this link for more information:
With the SA4010, it is sensitive to downloading large amounts of information all at once. As painful as this might be, try downloading one song at a time.
If this is a problem that didn't exist before, try resetting the player once by re-inserting the battery. If single song downloads fail, and this is a new problem Repair the device (WARNING: this will delete all songs off your player): 1) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website 2) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button (on this model, you will actually use the play/pause button instead of the volume + button) 3) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off (if you haven't done so already) - hold in the play/pausebutton and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the play/pause 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 play/pause button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new.
