There are very few GoGear's that are Mac-compatible. The HDD1830 is definitely not Mac-compatible.

My gogear does not recognize by my computer what should i do


What should I do if my player is not recognized by my PC?

Reset it. Use a pen tip in the RESET hole on the side of the player.
Connect the player to the PC to see whether the player is recognized.

Faulty USB port, try connecting the player to another USB port (or try another computer).

Is your computer Mac or Windows? eg Mac OS 10.7.2 had issues recognising media players that could be fixed by resetting PRAM.

Install Philips Songbird software and try Repair mode. Note this will delete files on the player.

I have a philips go gear and when I plug into my usb it says do not disconnect.. Then it says o.k to disconnect but the windows media player never recognizes it as a device.. What can I do?


have you installed the proper drivers?
when in the windows explorere menu the go gear can be found, you can handle it like a hard ddisk an d copy the mp3's manually onto it.
if recognized as player, try to open any mp3 on it using winMP or get vlc-player or winamp(for free!)
instead.
if player is not properly recognized by win,
there is no proper data management available, too.
good luck

Installation for philips gogear using apple macintosh


Can't. But, you can simply plug in the gogear into a mac USB port and manually drag music into the MUSIC folder. Files must go into that folder for player to recognize them.

Other than that, software only available for PC.

Make sure the hol/lock is not engaged. As logn as it's not engaged, run the Repair in Philips Device Manager. If the Device Manager will not recognize the player: Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

You have to install the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter that came with the installation CD - if you have lost the CD, you can actually get the new, upgraded Media Converter from www.usasupport.philips.com. The Media Converter can't handle full-length movies - it is more for shorter, You-Tube style videos. If the Media Converter doesn't recognize your videos, first get a free FLV codec online. If it still does not recognize the videos, download Riva FLV Encoder and convert any non-recognized video to AVI format. Then the Philips Media Converter will recognize the video, and you can run it through the converter. The Philips website also has a link to the full user guide which explains some of this, if you have lost the user manual.
