Update the firmware by grabbing the most recent update of the Philips Device Manager and running the "update" function. It will erase all of your songs, but your GoGear will work going forward.

How can combine music from different albums to the same file?


you wish to combine music from the same artist or various artists? the same artist will go under that artist name... various artist you will create a folder (play list... slow jams, dance tracks or even genre)

example Hip Hop will be all in one folder or all My Chemical Romance live / studio in one folder

connect device to PC, start/my computer/see device open it, right click new folder... now open new window find files click and drag or copy and paste files from where the files are to the newly name folder

note once you finish do not disconnect... disconnect using hardware removal safely

Wont play Artist/Album


if the music was not odtained from a legal source then sometimes it will not sort itself out on the mp3 player, because the info on it is imcomplete, it will only show up on SHOW ALL SONGS, SONGS, or whichever the folder is that shows all the songs on the device.

good day

Insignia sport 4 gig wont organize by artist


You will need to right click on the song file to see if the ID3 information is present.

Right-click, Properties, Summary tab.

You shoudl see a list of fields that you can populate manually, or you can try loading your audio files into a media manger program like iTunes, Media Monkey, WMP, etc and insure your song titles and album names are correct in the ID3 tag fields. Then, your files will appear correctly on your player.

Hope this helps!

How do I edit the file names so songs by the same artist can be in the same folder???!


Easy to do.

Connect your mp3 player to your computer.

By default the device is in MPT mode. In this mode you need to use media player or rhapsody or Samsung's own media software to transfer files. You need to have the music on your laptop. Once on the laptop you can edit the details - name, artist, etc to whatever you like. You can then drag it onto the player and it will keep those settings. remember to delete the files with the details you don;t want from the player

Go into my computer you will see yp-k3 device in the listing. You can edit the names directly this way but you cant move them to a folder.

E280r MP3 player wont sync songs!


If your device is getting too close to its capacity, it will effect the menu on the device. You need at least 6-10MB of free space for the "music database". If thats not it, one or more of your files may be corrupt. To resolve this, you should format the device to delete all the music, then transfer it back to the player. To format, right click on the device under My Computer and select format. Please add to the question if that didnt work. Best of Luck.
