You can definitely use Windows Media Player - in fact, it is the reccomended program.

From your description, it sounds like you might have turned your mp3 player on before fully charging it. Let it charge for 3-4 hours before adding music or doing anything else. The "updating" message will eventually go away as long as you don't unplug the player from the computer before it finishes updating. If you do unplug the player from the PC while it is updating, you will effectively destroy your GoGear.

Shutsoff, stays off problem...


Get the updated verison of the Philips Device Manager from Philips website, and then click on the Update button once you have installed the new Device Manager.

Several things to be wary of:
* a Philips player ending in "/02" is designed for use outside of the United States
* the SA5125 is incompatible with Windows Vista and Windows Media Player 11 without a firmware upgrade

WHat Is File System Err??


try downloading the cd driver or setup driver it came with.
then look through it for a program with a rocket ship icon.
open it.
click firmware upgrade, plug your mp3 player into the computer, select the newest firmware upgrade(it only shows new or current ones), open it, then click start upgrade and it should be fixed.
