Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged.
Try a different usb port.
If that fails:
Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

My Philips SA52xx GoGear MP4 Player won't start up. It just starts starting up and freezes on GoGear, it also makes wierd crackling sounds when playing music... My Philips GoGear used to start up within 10...

if it has too many songs on it try deleting some of the songs off the player, and if thats not the case, stop using it for a few days then try to turn it on again

SA52XX help video don't work !!!

The both of you might have 2 different problems. thesunto - there is no way to reload the firmware once you have delted a key system file on this player- go ahead and call Philips to see if you are still under warranty.

Guest - use the Philips Arcosft Media Converter to transfer videos - it is available for freee from Philips website.
