Try doing a repair in the Philips Device Manager, but it may not be enough to rid the player of a virus. Definitely worth a shot, though.

Connect the usb. Install drivers if necessary from CD included in package then browse "my computer" for the "phillips drive". Copy your MP3 files to the "music" folder.

HD6330 GoGear seems to have a virus


Chris, The reason the gogear shuts down is the battery needs charging. The lead that was supplied when new, was fitted with three plugs on it, one went into a power outlet (AC) one plugged into the base of the player, the last one (USB) into your P.C.
You should also have a CD with Philips device manager on, this needs downloading to your laptop, Windows media player version 10. is the only version Philips recomend for up / downloading music to the player.

Philips' players cannot read iTunes format - sorry. You will have to redownload those songs in proper Mp3 format or certain types of WMA format.If you are having trouble with Windows Media Player, get the version of Windows Media Player from www.microsoft.com that corresponds with your specific Windows Operating System - they have different releases for Windows XP and Windows Vista, for instance.

The Phillips Go Gear is not compatible to Windows Vista, and there is nothing one can download to make it compatible. I contacted Phillips, and they said that there are no plans to update the software so that it works on Vista. Pass this to everyone that is having a similar problem. Contact Phillips on their website, and request that the Phillips Go Gear software be updated to include Windows Vista. If more people raise a stink (especially threatening never to buy Phillips products), maybe something will be done.

The player only gives a white screen


Check your battery voltage it could be low and if thats the case rejuvenate it to its original capacity. And reinstall the software.
