    You cannot get around it, except by moving to Europe and buying a European Philips player. Philips does not publish their software, so there is no way to hack it.

Im sure if you looked hard enough for a 3rd party firmware update you might be able to get around it but i doubt too many people are bored enuf to do that

I want to know how to download songs to my mp3 player and if I can download them from iTunes or if it has to be from a sertain source


Your Philips GoGear SA6045 will not be able to use the I tunes format (AAC) so you will have to use Windows Media Player.
This is what I found on one of the review sites:

The audio playback format is MP3 and WMA and utilizes the Windows Media Player. It also has a WAV audio capturing file format. There is a built-in recorder and microphone. Additionally, there is a FM tuner. The Philips audio/video player uses the mobile Windows Media DRMr for viewing downloaded video from various sources. It is compatible with WMV9 up to 384 Kbps with a resolution up to 320 x 240. A convenient software converter is included for other formats. An addition feature is a picture compression in JPEG format with the ability to create a slide show.

Go gear will not operate in recording mode


The Go Gear SA52XX series is only capable of recording FM in Europe - the US versions, even though they have the same manual, will not allow FM Recording. I haven't heard that won't do voice recordings, but it doesn't surprise me - update the firmware - the directions are on Philips website. If it still won't record voice recordings, get a different mp3 player, because this is not the one.

The Philips SA6045, SA5125, and a few others will do FM and voice recordings. Ironically, the newer Philips GoGear's will not.

No FM Tuner Option


The FM radio feature did not come standard on all HDD1600 models - mostly they were on the European instead of the US variants - unfortunately, they did not consider this when they printed the manuals in Europe

Fm Recordings


Ok, If you mean you have an MP3/4 Player and it has an FM Radio that you can record on air music etc, to ya MP3/4 player's memory, and if that Player shows up in My Computer as a "Removable Drive", it should be a fairly simple matter to find the files on the Player, possibly with an MP3 extension, and copy & paste to where ever you want..
