SOURCE: Philips GoGear 8GB wont show song titles or artists.

the phillips go gear mp3 player is a total pice of **** the best thing you could do is go out return it and buy a sandisk sansa other wise called a sansa fuse they are great and they have an expandable micro sd card port.

oh and to fix your phlips go gear mp3 player you need to take a pin and stick it in a small hole on the side i belive it is on the left side next to the mic.

SOURCE: Unable to Edit Files.

Open Windows Media Player 11
Right click on one of the songs that is showing up as unknown artist.
Select "Advanced Tag Editor"
Manually enter the artist information, etc.

To save time, you could also right click the song and select "Find Album" info - it won't find every album, but it will find most of them.

The real bear is that once you have edited the information in Windows Media Player, you have to delete the affected song off of your mp3 player and THEN reload the newly-edited song - or else your changes won't register on the mp3 player itself.

Songbird


Songbird is unauthorized free music download website. Because they arent part of a large music selling company, they are more likely not to have the correct formats set for mp3 players or other music devices. You have to have the right formats to get organization for the songs to match with correct artist and album. Example: If there is a song that has format WMV and the song's album is format WAV,then its gonna confuse your music device, so the music device will put the WMV format song with the wrong WMV format album in its alphabetical order instead of the songs matching album WMV format. So restore your mp3 player and try to use a legalized music download website.

I plugged my gogear vibe (black 4 mb) into the computer to charge and after a while the computer did not recognise the device. it has error 43 on it. does anyone know what this means and how to fix it?


It seems that the software on your player has corrupted. I'd suggest that you do a soft reset of your player. You will find the reset button next to the 'power on' button on the side of the player. Please hold the Reset button using a pen tip or other sharp object for 10 seconds. Now turn it on.

If that doesn't work, I'd suggest that you format your player or repair it using Philips songbird or device manager. If your model number starts with SA1..... your player supports device manager. If it starts with SA2.... then it uses Philips Songbird. You can install them from the CD that came with your player or download it from Philips support site.
Contents may be removed by using this function. So make sure to back up your contents.

Format:
On your computer desktop, double-click "My computer". Double-click on the MP3 player's icon. Right-click on the Internal Storage icon and then select "Format".

Repair using Songbird:
Launch Songbird and then connect your player to your computer. Select "Repair" under the "Tools" menu. Follow the instructions given by the pop-up windows to perform the repair process.

Repair using Device manager:
Launch Device Manager and click the Tool menu and select "Repair", then follow the instructions to perform the repair process. 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.

Hope this works.

I am running Windows XP. I have 2 problems. (1)I rip CDs using itunes having set the default format to MP3. Then I use windows explorer to move the albums to the music file of the sansa clip. However, some...


1) You need to set the "tags" in the music files ... artist, album and song name. I would suggest opening up the files in MediaMonkey, which will let you edit the tags.

2) After you download the podcasts with MediaMonkey, you need to find out where they exist on your disk. Then, copy them to your Clip using Windows Explorer.

"unknown" album or artist


If you're using MSC mode (moving files via explorer), I believe the player ignores the directory structure for the most part, and uses the MP3 tags. I've had very good success using Media Monkey (which is freeware) to group the songs, and then transferring from there, in MTP mode.

Sansa m240 MP3 Unknown Artist


I can confirm that the following method works for me (finally):

1. Download and install Mp3tag (I'm using v. 2.48)
2. "Change" or "Add" the directory in which the mp3s reside

3. Make certain you have data for "Artist", "Album Artist", and "Album" (fill in if needed)
4. Select all mp3s and click the "Save" icon (or right-click them and choose "Save tag")
5. Transfer back to your Sansa device
