Unlike most devices the Philips 3020 will only play videos that are converted using the software that came with it and it will only open wmv files. So these are the steps that you need to do to successfully to play video on the 3020:

1) convert video into wmv format using any wmv converter (unless it is already in wmv format). I use WinAVI video converter and it works perfectly.

2) after the file is converted then you need to open up the Philips media converter that came with your MP3 player and add the files that you just converted to wmv format and then hit convert. If you can't find it here is a link to the download http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/s/sa3020_37/sa3020_37_mcs_aen.zip


3) After the second conversion process then connect up your 3020 and drag and drop the files.

** The Philips media converter will only accepts files im wmv format so that is why the first conversion step is necessary. If you try to open any other format it will not respond.

Hope this helps!

This is the FAQ I found on the support website. I think it is always safe to use the Philips songbird to do the converting and transferring.

"Please always use Philips Songbird to transfer your videos (.mp4) file to avoid playback issue.

Note: Make sure (latest version QuickTime)

Philips 2GB Go Gear wont upload vidoe


You have to use the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter to convert/transfer videos. If the converter is not recognizing a specific video type - FLV, for instance - download a free program called Riva FLV Encoder and convert the videos to AVI format first. Then the Philips Media Converter will recognize them.

The Philips Media Converter is not capable of converting an entire DVD - you will have to acquire video editing software, and then break up the DVD files into 15-minute chunks, and then convert each chunk.

If you are getting a codec error, do a google search for free video codecs - they are out there. Windows Codec Pack and downloading the latest version of quicktime will give you most of these needed codecs.

This player is not capable of playing copyright-protected videos - so don't even bother with them.

Additional information is available both from Philips website and from Arcsoft's website.

Video folder dont comes out


How man ytimes are you going to ask the same question? I already answered you - you have to go to Philips website and get the program called Philips Media Converter. With the Go Gear's, you can't simply open the video folder and drag and drop the videos. You MUST use the Philips Media Converter to convert and transfer your videos.
