Philips GoGear 8GB wont show song titles or artists.
My mp3 player wont: show songs, artists, or albums. This happened just yesterday. I tried to restart it but that did nothing. I tried to sync songs onto it and it came up with this messege "Songs are not compatible with my portable device" but I always used to use the same program and it didn't have a problem before. What should I do?
Re: Philips GoGear 8GB wont show song titles or artists.
The phillips go gear mp3 player is a total pice of **** the best thing you could do is go out return it and buy a sandisk sansa other wise called a sansa fuse they are great and they have an expandable micro sd card port.
oh and to fix your phlips go gear mp3 player you need to take a pin and stick it in a small hole on the side i belive it is on the left side next to the mic.

The mp3 player organizes by ID3 tag information, which is on the individual song. It unfortunately doesn't organize it any other way. Album art is not supported by the MP3 player. You can copy it over but it wont show, probably just see the default keyboard image.
You can edit the ID3 information with a tag editor..the naming has nothing to do with it, most of Coby's MP3 players have no sort order for music outside of what I just explained.
I just had this problem as well. Find one of the files that is showing up on the MP3 player as "Unknown Artist" in your iTunes library. Right click that song/file and click "Get Info". You'll most likely find that the song is an "ACC Audio File" which happens often when you copy CDs or download from the iTunes Store. Close the info window about the song and then you can select the entire album or individual songs from your iTunes playlist that are showing up as "Unknown Artist". Once all the songs that you need are selected, right click again and select "Create MP3 Version". This will create a duplicate, however, so you'll want to go back to the main library in iTunes (or stay there if you are already there) and then remove the original "ACC" versions. You can, if you'd like, keep them on your hard drive, but you really don't need them because MP3 is the standard. From here you can remove those files from the Coby MP3 player and replace them with the new MP3 versions you have created in iTunes.
I hope this helps!

Some players require files to be placed in appropriate directories. For
example audio files should placed in the folder called "audio" and
video files in a folder called "video" and so on.
Some mp3 players use a method called "syncing" to transfer songs to mp3 players. Syncing can be done only using the software that comes bundled with the player. Perhaps you should install the software and try using it to copy the songs again? you can download the software from visualland.com
You need to check the information on your computer.
Right click on the songs that are not showing up under artist and look at the info for them. If they don't have an artist listed, they will not show up on your ipod in the artist tab. You can add the artist name and then sync your ipod and it will update your music information for you.
if the music was not odtained from a legal source then sometimes it will not sort itself out on the mp3 player, because the info on it is imcomplete, it will only show up on SHOW ALL SONGS, SONGS, or whichever the folder is that shows all the songs on the device.
If your device is getting too close to its capacity, it will effect the menu on the device.
You need at least 6-10MB of free space for the "music database".
If thats not it, one or more of your files may be corrupt.
To resolve this, you should format the device to delete all the music, then transfer it back to the player.
To format, right click on the device under My Computer and select format.
Please add to the question if that didnt work.
Best of Luck.
