Lost software


of course you have to secure a installer disk even if you lose it.... And also you can download a Software Installation from your MP3 Website..
Theres a lot of MP3 are not using a program on its own to upload and download a mp3 files in your MP3 player.
But if you can download your mp3 files without using a program of your mp3 player and then you can play it... Its ok...! Good luck!

I am a rookie on the computer. I dont know how to put my music to my mp4 player. Please explain step by step. I don't see where to drag the music to. Also I don't know how to file them as mp3. I have...


Mp3 players are WAY too complicated to tell you in a few simple steps how to get them to work.

The SA178 is completely incompatible with Vista - Philips has issued a warning on their website. If you do indeed have an SA178, don't even try to use it with your Vista-enabled computer.

If, by some chance, you have a different model GoGear that is compatible with Vista - you may have to go to Philips website first to get a key firmware upgrade for it to work properly.

This is all before you even begin.

Once you have verified whether it is Vista-compatible or not, below are help files that will aid you in using Windows Media Player to transfer music files to your device. If your music files are not already in Mp3 format AND they are NOT copy-protected, then you can download a free program like Media Monkey to convert the music files to mp3 format.

Here are the Windows Media Player help files:
The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/windowsmediaplayer/wmp10/harrison_wmp10.mspx

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/faq/sync.mspx

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/mediaadvice/0085.mspx#EDF

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

7. Press the “Delete” button on your computer’s keyboard

To copy (RIP) files from CD to Mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

Windows Media Player won;t sync music!


Turn off the automatic sync option - change it to manual sync, and then you should be good to go. Change to manual sync first, and then reformat.

If you plug in the mp3 player then goto device manger via the control panel (hardware and sound) it will show up there as an uninstalled item. Righ click on it and select update driver and hopefully vista will search and find the apropiate driver for it.

Alternatively try the manufactures website for vista drivers.

Unfortunately not all hardware products are vista compatable yet :(

Software incompatability


Some one else had this problem and i explained i couldn't find any software for that mp3 player that was compatible for Windows Vista so i told him to try and use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to put songs on and he said it worked.

To use Windows Media Player 10 or 11, connect your iPod then go to Windows Media Player at the top click on the link called "Sync" now your on that on the right is a pane drag and drop your music there then click "Start Sync" once sink is complete disconnect and see if that works.

If you do not have a latest version (you should have because your running Windows Vista.) if not for some unknown reason here is the latest Windows Media Player - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way. Further problems just leave a message on this page and i will get back to a.s.a.p.
