My son has a philips go gear mp3 player 2gb some

Ok, just make sure you put songs that are compatible with the player like mp3 or wma, but most preferably, mp3. if you put any other format than mp3 it will only appear as a file in the flash and will not play.

first off get the arcsoft media converter 3, then drag and drop the videos you want to get on your mp3 player into the program, after it converts it it loads them onto your mp3 player as long as its connected, this program will also allow you to download youtube videos and put them on your mp3 player too

Plug the mp3 player into your computer with the cable it came with. Use Windows Media Player to browse your music and movies and "Sync" with your mp3 player.

Help me please

If your mp3 player is an SA178, then you can't. If it is a Philips Go Gear that does support video, then you have to run the video through the Philips Media Converter that came with the installation CD first, which is also available from Philips website. Start --> All Programs --> Philips Media Converter inside the Media Converter --> Add Files - find file (if the file does not appaear, run the video file through the Rive Flv Encoder, changing the "Output" extension to .avi) --> Convert to Device (with the Go Gear plugged in)
Good luck.

it simply means that you haven't added any mp3 or video files... if ya want the drivers go to the link below....

after installing this file, go to your philips media converter and add the videos you wanna convert, and convert it... after that jus copy the converted video files to the "videos" folder in your player....

if you have added any files and still your player doesn't detect it, then make sure you've copied it to the right folder... also check if those files are compatible with your player... sa3125/97 supports mp3, wma, n smv media files... n jpeg images...

Mp3 menu

I'm having the same exact problem! It just started last week. At first I thought it was a fluke so I removed the battery, but when I tried it again today all I get is the RCA logo in the display. Once I turn it on I'm stuck, I can't get to my music, the menu or even turn the darn thing off (in order to do that I have to remove the battery).

On my philips HDD082 MP3 Player

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).
