Mp3 players are WAY too complicated to tell you in a few simple steps how to get them to work.

The SA178 is completely incompatible with Vista - Philips has issued a warning on their website. If you do indeed have an SA178, don't even try to use it with your Vista-enabled computer.

If, by some chance, you have a different model GoGear that is compatible with Vista - you may have to go to Philips website first to get a key firmware upgrade for it to work properly.

This is all before you even begin.

Once you have verified whether it is Vista-compatible or not, below are help files that will aid you in using Windows Media Player to transfer music files to your device. If your music files are not already in Mp3 format AND they are NOT copy-protected, then you can download a free program like Media Monkey to convert the music files to mp3 format.

Here are the Windows Media Player help files:
The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/windowsmediaplayer/wmp10/harrison_wmp10.mspx

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/faq/sync.mspx

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/mediaadvice/0085.mspx#EDF

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

7. Press the “Delete” button on your computer’s keyboard

To copy (RIP) files from CD to Mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

To copy (RIP) files from CD to Mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

How do I put music on my go gear? I dont know much about computers so step by step please


Hello

I'm assuming you have windows media player. If so, connect your mp3 player, go into the "Sync" tab of the list up near the top, and drag them into the sync list and start. Another method is the drag & drop: Select files from your computer, and move them/ copy them onto your mp3 player by opening the folder for it,


You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

How to use my onda vx858 mp4


If it's an Onda, then it's a custom build. I would see if you can get Windows Media Player to recognize it, and then sync files to your device that way. If not, just connect it to PC, double-click my computer, and double-click the Onda device. If it has a msuic folder, just drage your files to there. I would only drag mp3-formatted files to this player - since it is a custom build, there are no specs. Here is a link to the company website:
http://www.ondacorp.com/products_custom.html

Custom builds are not for rookies. You are THE expert in this product simply because you own it.
