I want to get music on my mp3 player

After you sync your music collection to a Philips GoGear MP3 player with Windows Media Player, your favorite tunes will always be with you. Backing up your music collection on an MP3 player requires only a USB cable and a computer. Follow these steps to find out how easy it is.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Philips GoGear MP3 player
  • Computer
  1. Plug in the Philips GoGear to your computer. Use a USB cable to make the connection so you can begin synchronizing your music collection.
  2. Start Windows Media Player. Depending on how your computer is set up, this program may start automatically when you make the connection with the MP3 player.
  3. Find the Sync tab in the media player window. Click on this tab and open the Sync screen. The Sync screen has two panes. The left pane is for the music collection on your computer; the right pane is for the Philips GoGear.
  4. Choose the songs from your collection that you want to add to the GoGear's memory. Check the boxes that are presented by each song title.
  5. Click the "Start Sync" button. The files from your computer are being copied onto your GoGear MP3 player.
  6. Wait for the sync to complete. You can monitor the progress in the "Windows Media Player" window.
  7. Close the media player program. Unplug your Philips GoGear from the computer.

Removed coby meadia manager program from computer when plugging usb cord & coby mp3-600 back into computer. will not recognise devise as new & reload program

Media Manager is just the software that allows you to sync, the MP3 player should still show up as a Removable Disk drive under 'My Computer'. If not, check your connections, something should also appear on the MP3 player screen when connected to the computer.

Lost software

of course you have to secure a installer disk even if you lose it.... And also you can download a Software Installation from your MP3 Website..
Theres a lot of MP3 are not using a program on its own to upload and download a mp3 files in your MP3 player.
But if you can download your mp3 files without using a program of your mp3 player and then you can play it... Its ok...! Good luck!

Sync songs don't show on my player

It says in the user manual for C-100 sansa player that "various software packages are available to syncrhonize your songs on your device. Please refer to the specific software package instructions. "

I used Windows Media Player 9 and when you use these older Media Players you must remember to change your USB setting on your Sansa player to MSC. Turn on your Sansa Player, Choose the Main Menu and select settings. Don't choose auto-detect, but select MSC. If you choose auto-detect it will default to a setting called "MTP", and MTP wants Windows Media Player 10 to download your stuff.

I'm not familiar with how ITunes works, but perhaps AUTODETECT will work to synchronize your files.

Good luck.
