Refer to FAQ on this issue on the Philips website. When this fails,
Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + 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 volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

Coby MP-610 MP3 Player froze up wont turn off or connect to my computer

If it just froze up, there's a reset button at the back/bottom, I used a staple if a paperclip isnt available. The reset button did nothing to solve my problem of only getting a screen showing "COBY" but maybe it'll help you.

MP305 showing do u want to format it now..

I'm assuming you actually want to format the mp 3 player. To do that plug into computer click computer right click the drive the mp is plugged into and press format. All data would be deleted.

Cant upload songs to the mp3

I can help you with you Coby 610 mp3 player.

When the firmware inside the Coby 610 becomes corrupt, it doesn't communicate with your computer properly, so your computer can't see it.

Replacing the firmware in your mp3 player should have it working like new again.

Please try these steps to fix your Coby MP-610 MP3 Player.

I hope that helps.

I put pictures in a coby MP-C853 and i can't get them out.

Sounds like to me you got yourself in a bit of trouble, but luckily I maybe able to help you out ;)

Connect your mp3 player to your computer. Go to My Computer and look for the mp3 player, it should show up as a removable disk. Next, right click on the removable disk and select explore. This should open a folder containing the contents of your mp3 player. You will see folders labeled music, images, videos, ect.... Find the images you want to delete, which should be in the folder images. Click on the image(s) and right click it, then select delete.

Hope this helps <(^_^)> thanxx
