Not my case, because before this problem occurs the same songs were in the player and works fine for a while. All songs had a title already. I think the best solution is to delete everithing with the repair function privided with the manager. The real problem is that I have to do this procedure about every 3 months. but not a definitive solution.

MY only problem was that the songs had no real file title. the mp3 player wont read anything without a song title, so u write ur own in. this can be done by right clicking on your song which is on you computer, and going into properties, and then Summary. Try writting in the title of the song. thats what happend in my case anyways.

Had the same problem just last week on my player. I had to download a newer device manager and then do a repair. also after i did the repair i did a soft reset(hold down the up button for 5 seconds, then push power), now it works fine.

How do u put songs on it


There are different ways to put music into your player.
If you have CD you can rip it using Windos media player or Philips songbird depending on which software your player uses. All latest players use songbird (mainly those start with SA2xxxx) while some manufactured before 2010 uses Windows media player and Philips Device manager. Or you can download the songs from internet and save them to your computer and the use drag and drop method to transfer them to your player.

Rip CD using songbird:
Insert the CD into your computer and launch Songbird.
Once the CD is detected, it will automatically show up on the Philips Songbird screen.
Click the "Rip CD" on the right hand side and the ripping process will begin.
Here is how to transfer files from songbird to your MP3 player:
1. Click "File" in the toolbar and select "Import Media". Choose the folder that stored your media files.
2. Select the media files that you want to transfer and then Right Click to display a drop list (You can press and hold the Ctrl button on the keyboard to select more than one file).
3. Select "Add to Device" and "(Your player model)".

You can also use drag and drop method to transfer files. Hope this helps.

I can't put songs in my mp3 player every time i transfer a song it says " cannot copy or the directory or file cannot be created" i scanned it and my mp3 player seems to be ok the memory isn't half- full...


Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

Can not start mp player error genarate memory is full


Your mp3 player is so full that it does not even have enough space to run a Repair. Connect the Philips to the computer, double-click My Computer, right click the Philips icon, and select Format --> Fat32 (or whatever is appropriate for your computer). Normally, I would not reccomend this type of formatting for a Philips, but it is probably our only chance at this point. After conducting the format, try the Repair in Philips Device Manager again.

Warning: All of your songs/files will be erased.

The device itself is not faulty. This is Microsoft's fault, not Philips'. Some of the songs may have Digital Rights Management (DRM) encoding that the SA6025 will not support. You can right click on the trouble music file, select "Properties," and select the License or Digital Right tab - look for the msg: This file is not copyright protected. Find out if the songs that CAN'T be transferred have this message. If so, then click on acquire digital rights (or some variant of that phrase). If the files tha CAN'T be transferred DO have Digital rights protection, then you must save the files in a different format that is stripped of DRM encryption.

There are a few possible answers:
1)Start simple - disconnect the GoGear from the computer - let it update - then reconnect it to the computer; if this fails, restart your computer and try syncing again

2)You need a firmware upgrade to make the device compatible with your computer: just 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; click on the update tab

3) The songs have Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection.Try re-downloading the songs without DRM protection.

4) The songs are in a format not recognized by the GoGear. The GoGear, for instance, will not take iTunes files b/c they are AAC format. With MP3 files, the player supports 32 –320kbps. With WMA: 5-192kbps with sampling rate 8.0kHz up to 44.1kHz. Right click the song file, and select "Save As", and then change the format of the song file. Or, redonwload, in the above-said format.

File swapping to pc


You can access all the files on the MP3 player from the HDD1630 device folder in My Computer. Just navigate to the music folder and copy all your songs to your computer.

You can remove songs from your MP3 player using Windows Media Player.

It's unlikely that your MP3s contain viruses, but you can always scan them once you've copied them to your computer. 'Corrupt mp3 file' more likely means the file is in the wrong format or was written incorrectly.
