Re: Songs made inac cessible by sync up
The HDD6330 works perfectly with Windows Media Player 10, but synching it with Windows Media Player 11 eventually causes problems - there is a warning about this issue on Philips' website. The damage has probably already been done, but if your computer will still recognize the GoGear, double-click MyComputer, double-click the icon of the Philips Go Gear, and look for a file call "wmpinfo" - it is a file that Windows Media Player 11 adds automatically to the player that wreaks havoc on this particular GoGear - delete the file called "wmpinfo". Then rollback your version of Windows Media Player to ver. 10 - it will not erase any of your media files in the process.

when you sync the ipod itunes only syncs what you select. it is possible your music list got uncheck or you had checked only synced check songs. what happens then is the sync will replace you full library with only the songs checked. when you connect to itunes and see the summary page. on the tabbed line just above the main contents window choose music. look at your settings and see how it is set up. set it to sync all music then it will sync all the songs on your playlists every time.
you can also add and delete music by on your summary page uncheck automaticallu sync music.
then you can click on your music folder of your ipod and drag and drop song to the first column of the contents window. if you have any problems let me know
Run a repair in the Philips Device Manager - it will erase all the songs off the player as a side effect. Then try reloading the songs - if the songs came from a particular music service, make sure your subscription is up to date before reloading the songs.
When you sync, you are telling Windows Media player to make the player match what is currently in your sync list. So if you removed the first 110 from your Windows Media, that is why they disappeared from the player.
You don't need to use Windows Media player to add songs. Simply open Windows explorer, double-click your Sandisk device, double click the music folder, then drag and drop any files you want into the folder.
In your windowsmedia you will see the device name listed..you have to make sure the device is under MTP mode..then click on the player and you will see all the songs...you can just right click on the songs and delete them..if you dont want the device to sync automatically you can click on sync and then click on the device name and click on sync setting..there you can modify if you want it to sync automatically.. Should you have any questions..let me know.. P.S.Please rate accordingly... Thank You Computerrep
I have been able to sync mine, though it wouldn't transfer some songs. It would sit there trying to convert it but wouldn't. So I tried the alternate way to get them on. I just did a drag and drop and all the songs played fine. I just had to be sure to hold the play/hold/stop button for about six seconds before it would turn on.
BTW all of the songs including the ones windows wanted to convert played fine this way.
Make sure the songs do not have DRM encryption, and that they are the right format (mp3, wma) for the player.
Go ahead and do this, in case you have Windows Media Player 11, or the DB is corrupted:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
If you clicked "yes" to an Update for your device, then all your songs have been wiped. Firmware Upgrades and Repairs (whether performed knowingly or unknowingly), will delete all songs from your GoGear.
Alternatively, when you have automatic synchronization set up for Windows Media Player, then re-syncing to the device when the songs don't exist on your computer will also cause the GoGear to be wiped. It's a feature of WMP that I don't like.
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer
itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up
erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as
new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override
the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be
reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware
upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites. WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or
FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right
click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to
Windows-based computers. You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself: Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media
Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath
the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking
on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of
Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select
"Format." - this should erase everything. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
