The songs could be in the wrong format - make sure they are in mp3 format or UNPROTECTED WMA format (90% of WMA's are protected).

If they are definitely in mp3 format (which I doubt):
Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged
Try another USB port
Reset the player

If that fails:
Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager:
www.usasupport.philips.com - change your country/language as needed
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on the Software & Drivers section
Click on "Firmware Upgrade Software"
Install the new Device Manager
Open and run the "Repair" tab

If still nothing:
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.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.


If these methods fail, call Philips to see if you are still in-warranty.

I cant get my coby mp 815 to pull up its music manager on my new computer, I pluged it in, but it just plays whats already loaded on it? whats the music manager?


If I was you I would use either Windows Media Player or Drag and Drop your files to your player. If you choose to use Windows Media Player you will have the same functions that you will have with the coby music manager. Here is the following ways to add music and files to your player if you choose the above ways to add music:

**Drag and Drop**
Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder; available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.
--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

I am trying to transfer music onto my bush mp3 it is saying device has stopped but i have got it plugged in .can you help me please?


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the Coby website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

then follow these instructions to add music;

"No Song" displayed even though music has been loaded, many times


The songs ripped from CD are not in the right format. In Windows Media Player, highlight the Rip tab, click the black arrow under the Rip tab, select Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3. Now, re-rip the songs. Before you transfer these tracks to the player, make sure you delete the tracks that are on the mp3 player now, or else Windows Media Player wil ltell you that the tracks are already there. Now, transfer the newly-ripped Mp3 tracks to your Sansa. Should be good to go.

Sync probs


Use Windows Media Player to do your transferring with that particular player.

The format of your songs could also be wrong - use Mp3 only. No wma's, and no iTunes. WMA's will work, but not without issues and qualifications.

I can't download the music to mp3


The songs you are trying to load are in the wrong format - converting them to mp3 format will do the trick:

For every type of file other than WMA, the format error is pretty straightforward. You are trying to load a completely incompatible file format that is not recognized by the Mp3 player. To give you an example, there are currently no Philips GoGear Mp3 players that will load songs from the iTunes music service. The reason they will not transfer or play correctly is that the GoGear is that iTunes gives the users their songs in .AAC format. The GoGear cannot recognize .AAC format. To resolve this problem, you will have to convert the AAC song file into Mp3 format, or some other format that the GoGear recognizes (Note to the law-abiding: converting a copyright protected file into another format might be illegal. If you are concerned, I would just re-download the same song in Mp3 or another recognized file format – this will require a separate music service other than iTunes, in this example).

How down my mp3 200 series sana


Use Windows Media Player to transfer songs to this device. If the songs are already on your computer, then use the Sync tab to transfer songs to your Mp3 player. If you want to transfer songs from CD to this player, then use the Rip tab in Windows Media Player. If this is your first time using Windows Media Player, then you probabaly need WAY more help than we could possibly give you here. Go to www.microsoft.com and search "Windows Media Player" to get help files and instructions with pictures on how to use the software.

If you do not have any Mp3 files already, then sign up for one of the web's music services. Napster and Rhapsody are good, but the basic-level subscription will not allow you to transfer songs to an Mp3 player - you will need to get their premium (more expensive) subscription to be able to transfer songs. Limewire and Morpheus have free versions of their music service, but they are ad-filled and virus-prone.

If you encounter any sort of technical problem with the player I can help you, but read my "Tips and Tricks" on Sansa players first, as they solve as wide variety of problems.

Down loading songs


RCA's website has the software/manual that you need if you lost the CD
Use Windows Media Player to transfer music and delete songs
As far as downloading songs, you can sign up for a wide number of music services - each one has a different download method, and the company website will explain how to use it. The problem with this RCA player is that it was tied to Yahoo!'s Musicmatch Jukebox svc, which was cancelled in October 2007, so you will have to find another music service. Some music services will recognize the RCA player directly, and you can use their svc to download the songs directly to your player. Other services you will have to download the songs first, and then transfer them to the RCA using Windows Media Player afterwards.
