Question about Philips SA5125/37 MP3 Player

3 Answers

Deleting files I have not yet determined how to delete files from a Philips GoGear Mp3 player. When I synched files from the PC to the player, it downloaded the manual plus all of the songs I had put on a a playlist. I feel like I understand the Menu so must you delete files from the player by goping back to the playlist?

Try using windows explorer to delete. your mp3 player should show up as a portable device in explorer. navigate thru the folders, right click on the folders you don't want and click delete.

Hi, I am using Philips Go Gear 4 GB MP3 palyer. It has 3 GB free space but when I start the player,below message comes . Please tell me how to solve the issue "Memory Full Connect to PC &...

Possible that some of the files in the GoGear are not to the requriement of the player. So download the media converter and download the files to be transferred to the player. In the first place connect the player to the PC and move OFF all the files , delete the memory to be free and then reload using the converter .

Songs made inac cessible by sync up

The HDD6330 works perfectly with Windows Media Player 10, but synching it with Windows Media Player 11 eventually causes problems - there is a warning about this issue on Philips' website. The damage has probably already been done, but if your computer will still recognize the GoGear, double-click MyComputer, double-click the icon of the Philips Go Gear, and look for a file call "wmpinfo" - it is a file that Windows Media Player 11 adds automatically to the player that wreaks havoc on this particular GoGear - delete the file called "wmpinfo". Then rollback your version of Windows Media Player to ver. 10 - it will not erase any of your media files in the process.

Good luck!

I had already saved some songs on my gogear 2gb, and when i plugged it in to delete those and add some more, i accidentally deleted the music file from the mp3 player.

Unfortunately, deleting that music file is irreversible - you can try running the Repair in Philips Device Manager, but it most likely will not work. Call Philips and see if you are in warranty.

Before trying to delete the duplicate songs, first try re-synching your GoGear with Windows Media Player by connecting the GoGear to the computer and clicking on the Sync tab (if you haven't set up the GoGear for automatic sync).

You must use Windows Media Player to delete songs from the GoGear. With your GoGear connected to the PC, you want to highlight (single left click) the icon of the GoGear (or line that says Philips GoGear blah blah blah) on the left hand side of Windows Media Player 11 - this will ensure that you are deleting files from the GoGear itself, and not the computer. Once the GoGear line is highlighted, click on the "Songs" or "Album" folder underneath the GoGear line (NOT the "Songs" or "Album" folder underneath the "Library"). This will bring up a list of songs stored on the GoGear into the middle pane of Windows Media Player 11. Highlight (single left click) a song you want to delete and press the delete button on your computer's keyboard. windows USUALLY gives you a prompt asking if you really want to delete the files/they will be permanently removed from your (GoGear) device. Congratulations, you have just deleted songs from your GoGear! :-)

The HDD 1630 doesn't work particularly well with Windows Media Player 11, so you may have to follow Microsoft's instructions for rolling back to Windows Media Player 10.
