You need to convert them to mp3 format for a mp3 player to recognize them.

Hello :

Reset your mp3 player first . If that didn't solve the problem , then I would recommend you to format your player . But before formatting you need to back up everything on it .

good luck .

I've downloaded songs but they don't show up on my player


Each mp3 player can only play songs in certain formats. A Philips GoGear, for instance, can't read iTunes format. Some players cannot read DRM-encrypted WMA files, which is what most music services use. When you load a song in the wrong format to an mp3 player, the song appears to transfer, but the mp3 player won't actually play it. The best workaround for this problem is to only load songs that are in true mp3 format - they are accepted by 99% of digital audio players. If you give us your manufacvturer/model #, and music service name, we can tell you exactly which formats your player plays.

Help? svp!


"File Format Not Supported" - SA6045/37 The file format not supported message means that the type of file you are trying to load into the GoGear is not compatible with the GoGear. There are no GoGear's that are compatible with iTunes. As far as WMA files are concerned, the GoGear's vary wildly. If the WMA file has a bit rate higher than 192 kbps (which is quite common nowadays), it will not work. If you actually have an SA6045, then make sure the license on the WMA file has "transfer rights," or that the license has not expired. You can check this by right-clicking on the song, selecting Properties, and looking at the tab that says "license" or "digital rights management." 
If you find that you are using an incompatible format, convert the songs to mp3 format. If the songs came from CD, use Windows Media Player to re-rip the songs in Mp3 format. You can do this in Windows Media Player 11 by  higlighting the "Rip" tab, pulling down the drop down-menu by clicking on the little tiny arrow that appears underneth the word "rip," and selecting "format", and then "mp3".
Good luck!

"format not supported" - error message of death


1. songs which have copyright protection on aren't recognised by the player
2.you can't convert from WMA to MP3
3. you can't drag and drop from a CD you have to rip it first. i suggest you use windows media player for this as it is very quick you just put in the disk and click 'RIP'
4. you can down;load the latest media converter from the philips website which will actually convert things
5. try upgrading the firmware (from the philips website) you need to download the new device manager and then follow insructions from the web page
6. try reparing your device using the new device manager (it will delete anything you have on there

I can't download the music to mp3


The songs you are trying to load are in the wrong format - converting them to mp3 format will do the trick:

For every type of file other than WMA, the format error is pretty straightforward. You are trying to load a completely incompatible file format that is not recognized by the Mp3 player. To give you an example, there are currently no Philips GoGear Mp3 players that will load songs from the iTunes music service. The reason they will not transfer or play correctly is that the GoGear is that iTunes gives the users their songs in .AAC format. The GoGear cannot recognize .AAC format. To resolve this problem, you will have to convert the AAC song file into Mp3 format, or some other format that the GoGear recognizes (Note to the law-abiding: converting a copyright protected file into another format might be illegal. If you are concerned, I would just re-download the same song in Mp3 or another recognized file format – this will require a separate music service other than iTunes, in this example).
