Question about Philips HDD1630 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Won't upload media

Every time I start a sync the mp3 player won't do anything. The sync starts but gets stuck in the middle of the first song. I have 3.5 gigs left in memory but I can't upload anything. I've tried restarting the player, restarting the computer, starting with different songs, and several other things. I'm at a loss. I'm ready to ask for an Ipod, since I've only had this thing for six months and I can't do anything else with it. Can you help me?

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

Ilo player must be synchronized, coping and pasting files is not enough:

  1. Start Windows Media Player and select following menus: "File.", then choose "Add to Library." then the "Add" button. Then, look for the folder where your keep the mp3s to upload.
  2. Plug the Ilo MP3 player into USB.
  3. Click the "Sync" tab that you find at the top of Windows Media Player . You will find the Ilo MP3 player on the right side of Windows Media Player. If Ilo is not ther, then right-click on Sync tab and click "Refresh Devices."
  4. Click "Library" then "Songs." on Windows Media Player . Highlight the son songs, and choose "Add to Sync List."
  5. Click "Start Sync" button that will appear at the bottom right corner of Windows Media Player. The songs will then be uploaded to the Ilo MP3 player.

Had a gpx mw3847 given to me. no cd with it. is there someway to organize the songs on the mp3 so I don't have to scroll through every song to find the one I want? del560@yahoo.com


you shouldn't need a cd to install drivers. Windows XP and newer will automatically find and install the drivers. as far as organizing the songs, no, unless you can delete everything and start from the begining and sync just the music you want.
If you are using Windows Media Player to sync, it will put the songs on the player in the order you have them in the sync list.
If its just one song you like, there is a repeat one song option, push the middle button until it shows 'rep 1'.

Converting wma's to mp3 costs money unless you are getting the songs from an actual CD. Better to get an mp3-only music service like Limewire, Rhapsody Mp3, etc.

Note: You will be able to download purchased/subscribed songs to the unit.

1. Start Windows Media Player 11 and then connect your unit to your computer. If you have not set up synchronization between your computer and this device, the Device Setup Wizard starts.

Philips GoGear: delete music from library & are there any Unicode


Here's the deal:
Open the Philips Device Manager that came with the install cd, and do a Repair - this will erase everything so you can start over from scratch. This will also take care of your squares issue.

No dice on the playlist issue - sorry.

Next, you have to disable the auto sync feature in Windows Media Player to prevent it from auto-loading all of those songs/files that you don't want. by opening Windows Media Player, highlighting the Sync tab, clicking on the little black arrow to bring down the drop-down menu, clicking on "Set Up Sync" (make sure your mp3 player is connected to computer, or this option will not appear), and unchecking the box that says "automatically sync files to my device". This will give you manual sync instead.

I can't load no more than 60 songs


You have auto-sync enabled - disable it

Disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player - Microsoft's website explains it far better than I can

Open Windows Media Player WITH the mp3 player connected
Highlight Sync, click on the arrow to bring down drop-dow menu
Select Set Up Sync
Uncheck box that says "automatically sync files to device"

Problems uploading song


Try using Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to put music on instead of the samsung media studio.

Connect your MP3 player then go into Windows Media Player, if you haven't got the latest Media Player download here - CLICK HERE

Once you've installed it connect your mp3 player then open Windows Media Player up then click on the link called "Sync", now your on there it should show your device in the top right of the screen, now all you need to do is drag and drop music you want on your mp3 play where it says "Drag items here", once you've finished choosing songs to put on just click "Start Sync", that's it.

And for future reference you can format using Windows Media Player as well.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way.

Philips GoGear: delete music from library & are there any Unicode


Here's what happened: When you first synced your GoGear to Windows Media Player, you may have set up the automatic sync option. When this option is selected,Windows Media Player will add EVERY song, picture, etc from your Library on your computer to the GoGear. Now, every time you sync you device, it adds every new file from your computer into the GoGear automatically.

Here's what you want to do (this process assumes you have Windows Media Plaer 11 and windows XP - if you have another version, just let me know and I will give you modified instructions - reply to the FixYa website, not to my personal e-mail address):
1) Backup all files stored on your GoGear, as this process will delete all files from your GoGear
2) Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your GoGear connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portbale media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding songs/files you don't want into your player
3) As long as the GoGear now says, "OK to disconnect from PC," then open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
4) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
5) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is succesfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new
6) you will have to re-add all your files (only the ones you want in there) to the GoGear as the Repair process has deleted all files on the device; as long as you followed the process in Step 2 above, then Windows Media Player will no longer add the files you DON'T want to the GoGear
