You can download the software & manual from the Philips website:||type=CONSUMER||locale=gb_en||mode=prod_text||item=sa178||page=1||show=50&xsl=search_result.xsl

Click on your particular country variant in the list. (SA178/XX)

This number is on the label on the end of your player.

Click on software & Downloads, then click on the download file.
