Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Philips GoGear Sa1942 model which gives the song capacity as up to 900 tracks. I transfer albums via my media player which then go into "my music" file, I then highlight the album or tracks and then copy into the MP3. The problem thatI have is that the MP3 player signals that the player disc is full after only 300 tracks. This is the second MP3 that has given me this problem. Should I be compressing the tracks before I transfer into the MP3 . Si

    Hi Dili. This has got to complicated for an old dog like me . I am going to return the MP3 Player and go back to my CD player .

    Hi Dili. Using the software conversion from wav to mp3 did not reduce the MB by any significant amount, so the approx sum of the tracks would not allow me to load the mp3 player any further . So back to square 1 . Si.

    Hi FixYa. I think there has been a misunderstandin here as I have apparently sugested a solution to my own problem . The " thanks for trying" was for my Guru Dili who recomended the conversion software to convert wav to mp3 but which did not solve my problem. Si.

    Hi FixYa. (Message to Dilipbagdi , the Guru on my problem ). The music being downloaded into my mp3 was in the WMA format and NOT the Wave as I mistakenly told you. However the mp3 converter only reduced the MB from the WMA by only a few MB and so did not significantly reduce the disc space in the mp3 .Having altered the rip speed on my media player this does cut MB per album by 50% while still retaining a reasonable quality of sound but some loss of volume .Si.

Hi FixYa.My Guru Dili sugested I use software to convert the wav format ,which he said was taking up to much disc space .On converting the wav format to MP3 I have found that the conversion did not reduce the MB sum considerably less than the wav format .However I have tried reducing the rip speed on my media player but I have yet to compare the output quality of the sound at the reduced rip speed on my MP3 player .So for Windows XP,- media player,- rip options, then alter the scale down to a lower scale reading . Si.

How can I upload album art onto a philips gogear vibe for all my artists? I have album art inside my folders and i had itunes embed the art into the files when i uploaded them; however the art only shows...


There are 3 possible ways in getting the album art for your music album.
  1. Album art may be obtained from the online Music CD database that Windows Media Player uses.
    Note: Not all music albums have album art available in the online CD database.
  2. From the online music store where you purchased your songs or albums, the album art may be downloaded along with your purchase.
  3. You may also create your own album art by transferring your favorite jpg photo into the selected album folder and rename it to Album Art.jpg.
To download album art from the online database and transfer to the player.
  1. Make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet.
  2. Launch Windows Media Player.
  3. Go to Tools> Options> Player.
  4. Make sure the "Enable picture support for devices" check box is selected.
  5. Click the Apply, then the OK buttons.
  6. Select the "RIP" tab on the task menu bar.
  7. Insert your music CD into the CD drive of your computer. The Windows Media Player will take a few seconds to show the content of the CD on the display.
  8. Click "Find Album Info". The Player accesses the database hosted by WindowsMedia.com and displays information about the album in the Album Information pane. The album art will be shown if available.(Note: For some music CD, album art may not be found in any of the online database.)
  9. Click Finish to update all the information about your album and show it in the Rip pane.
  10. Connect your Device to the computer.
  11. Select the tracks that you would like to rip by clicking in the check b ox next to the track.
  12. Click the Rip music button to start ripping the music CD.
  13. Once the tracks are finished being ripped to the library, go to the Media library and select the songs that you have just ripped.
  14. Add them to the sync list and transfer them into your Device. The album art will be transferred along with those selected songs.
  15. Disconnect the Device from your computer.
  16. Make sure that the option in your Device has been selected to display the album art on the device, at Settings-> Album art.

To create your own album art and transfer it to the Device
  1. In Windows Media Player , right click on the song you want to update the album art of.
  2. Select "Advanced Tag Editor" option.
  3. In the screen that pops up , select the "Pictures" tab.
  4. Use the drop down list to make sure that the type of picture you add is the Cover (front).
  5. Click on "Add" to associate a picture as the Album art for the song and all the songs in that album.
  6. Add this (and other songs from the same album) to the sync list and transfer them into your Device. The album art will be transferred along with those selected songs.
  7. Disconnect the Device from your computer.
  8. Make sure that the option in your Device has been selected to display the album art on the device, at Settings-> Album art.

On all tracks when i press play i get message ''media engine error! drm license not available'' i have a gogear sa1942


Your song (.WMA) are copy protected by 'Microsoft Windows Media digital rights management (DRM)' and appears to be requesting a license key which needs to be loaded to your player.
Solution:
- Media Player will automatically load those licences keys to your player for your authorised music/media files.
- Alternatively, remove DRM (for song that you own ...) by some third party means software (including burning them on CD with appropriate options)
- Use alternative songs encoding (such as .mp3) that do not this protection.

Playlist


Yes - instead of dragging an entire playlist or an entire album onto the GoGear, just go to the Sync tab in Windows Media Player and drag the individual song that you want to transfer. The player also has several play modes - repeat, shuffle, etc. - shuffle will give you a certain degree of randomization.

Will not play songs in ALBUM order


yes, this player is naturally alphabetical, but you can re-edit the track #'s in the id3 tag, and then retransfer the song to the goGear - should work

How can i put songs in files


Organize them within Windows Media Player first by editing the id3 tags - it takes a long time, and THEN transfer them to the GoGear - you cannot organize them once they have been transferred.

Before trying to delete the duplicate songs, first try re-synching your GoGear with Windows Media Player by connecting the GoGear to the computer and clicking on the Sync tab (if you haven't set up the GoGear for automatic sync).

You must use Windows Media Player to delete songs from the GoGear. With your GoGear connected to the PC, you want to highlight (single left click) the icon of the GoGear (or line that says Philips GoGear blah blah blah) on the left hand side of Windows Media Player 11 - this will ensure that you are deleting files from the GoGear itself, and not the computer. Once the GoGear line is highlighted, click on the "Songs" or "Album" folder underneath the GoGear line (NOT the "Songs" or "Album" folder underneath the "Library"). This will bring up a list of songs stored on the GoGear into the middle pane of Windows Media Player 11. Highlight (single left click) a song you want to delete and press the delete button on your computer's keyboard. windows USUALLY gives you a prompt asking if you really want to delete the files/they will be permanently removed from your (GoGear) device. Congratulations, you have just deleted songs from your GoGear! :-)

The HDD 1630 doesn't work particularly well with Windows Media Player 11, so you may have to follow Microsoft's instructions for rolling back to Windows Media Player 10.

Try transferring with Windows Media Player instead - see if the GoGear icon appears on the left hand side of the WMP screen (while the GoGear isp lugged in). If it does, then you can transfer and delete songs through Windows Media Player.

My lists are in reverse order


You have to delete those songs off the player, put them in reverse order in Windows Media Player, and then reload them to GoGear. I know it's a pain, but it is the only method that works.
