Some slightly older laptops generally do not have enough power to make an mp3 player properly function. Make sure the USB ports on the laptop are USB 2.0. Also, the Go Gear HDD series had a proprietary adapter which required you to plug it into the computer and the wall simultaneously. Do you have the proprietary adapter?

Your laptop has to have a USB 2.0 port. Many laptops do not even have enough power to properly run an mp3 player. If your laptop is definitely compatible, here is the method to force recognition (note: the Philips HDD series of GoGear needs a proprietary adapter, so if your model # starts with HDD, make sure you have the original adapter):

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.

I listen to the music for 1 hour. I turn the lock switch off. The next day the Go gear MP3 has completely discharged. I re charge it on the pc. The screen reads 'Fully charged'. The same thing...


There are two things possible.
1) You have defective re chargeable batteries in your GoGear.
2) There is some short circuit because of which the re chargeable cells are discharging.
Either way you should get the system changed. If you want to confirm if its the battery defect or GoGear. Charge the system fully and play music continuously. If the Go Gear plays for about 4 hours with out break---- its not the battery but the charging system.

Really over this. My 4gb go gear will not recharge from the computer no matter how long it's left connected. Have tried other computers and usb connections but still no luck


Have you tried another cable?

If it is a USB cable, be advised that there are 3 pin and 4 pin cables, and only the 4 pin charge. The 3 pin is for data only.

My phillips go gear wont trun on


You may have to change the battery - difficult with this model.
•Battery capacity: 750 mAh
•Battery Type: Li-ion

But before you try that, go ahead and get the new software for the model from Philips website - specifically, the new Device Manager, and run a Repair.
