Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Same as others format not supported and need step by step instructions. Found device manager but don't know what I want to fix. Don't know how to change format to mp3 format either. Guess there should be one of those dummies books on mp3 players for plain people like me who needs to see everything in black and white to understand it. Don't understand what I'm to do.

    Thank you so much. This is exactly the step by step instructions that I needed. You may be tired of repeating these steps but people like me really appreciate your help. I don't feel so stupid any more. I plan on saving this information. Maybe I can help some one else. You wouldn't believe how many young people I asked that couldn't help me. Thanks again from an old gal.

I'm going to do my best, but understand that I have answered this same question - I'm not kidding - thousands of times, so I'm tired:
1. Music files come in several formats. The most common are mp3, wma, aac (iTunes), wav, and ra.
2. All GoGear's recognize mp3 format. Some GoGears' (like the SA6045) recognize protected WMA's, and some do not. No GoGear's recognize iTunes yet.
3. To avoid belaboring this point - only download songs in mp3 format. Any other music format will give you constant headaches if you are an mp3 dummy. It is harder, more expensive to download true mp3 files, but they will last forever. Every other musical format either: a) will not work with your GoGear, or b) will give you some kind of problem down the road.

If you need help transferring songs using Windows Media Player:
The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

How to turn off write protection


Look for a switch or button on the side of your MP3 player.

It might have a lock/unlock symbol on it, or read "HOLD."



This switch effectively disables the player so it doesn't turn on in your pocket when you don't want it to.



Move the switch to the "Unlocked" or "NO HOLD" position to remove write protection.

This position may also be labeled "R/W" for "read/write."


If you have no switch, continue to next Step.


Check with your manufacturer documentation and support.


Some players have options to securely lock them so data is not transferred or overwritten without permission.

Format the MP3 player.


This step should only be taken as a last resort because it will delete all files form your MP3 player.

To format, select "Control Panel," "Administrative Tools" and "Disk Management."


Select the MP3 player and click "Delete." Right-click on empty drive and select "New Partition." Follow the on-screen instructions to format.


hope this helps

Hi njupadzija99

Thank you for your question at Fixya,

The solution to your problem is as follows :-

  1. Please ensure that you copy the MP3 Files back to your device after you format it.
  2. When you are done copying the files, restart the MP3 Player and check if the files are being read.
  3. If the files are not being read , then connect your Mp3 player to your computer and change the format mode while you format the device and then again load the mp3 files and then restart the player to check if the files are detected.
  4. To clarify , if you formatted your device using a NTSC format earlier , check formatting it in the fat32 mode and see if it works find after copying the files to the player.

Hope that helps ...:) In case you have any queries, feel free to contact me.

When i switch on my gogear 4gb ,it displays "file system error".plz let me know how to solve the problem


Firstly, I'd suggest that you do a soft reset of your player. You will find the reset button next to the 'power on' button on the side of the player. Please hold the Reset button using a pen tip or other sharp object for 10 seconds. Now turn it on.

If that doesn't work, I'd suggest that you format your player or repair it using Philips songbird or device manager. If your model number starts with SA1..... your player supports device manager. If it starts with SA2.... then it uses Philips Songbird. You can install them from the CD that came with your player or download it from Philips support site.
Contents may be removed by using this function. So make sure to back up your contents.

Format:
On your computer desktop, double-click "My computer". Double-click on the MP3 player's icon. Right-click on the Internal Storage icon and then select "Format".

Repair using Songbird:
Launch Songbird and then connect your player to your computer. Select "Repair" under the "Tools" menu. Follow the instructions given by the pop-up windows to perform the repair process.

Repair using Device manager:
Launch Device Manager and click the Tool menu and select "Repair", then follow the instructions to perform the repair process. Make sure all other applications such as Philips Plug-in, Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer that access the device are closed or else Device Manager will not recognize the device.

Hope this works

Sony NWZ-B105F - trouble shooting


My Sony NWZ-103F, same as the 105F, was doing the same thing “CREATING DATABASE” and then the message “BOOT ERROR, SHUTTING DOWN”. The PC did not recognize the player plugged into the USB port except in the device manager field. I tried all of the other solutions to no avail. This is what fixed it for me.
1. Open CONTROL PANEL
2. Select SYSTEM
3. HARDWARE
4. Click on DEVICE MANAGER
5. Scroll to the bottom of the Manager window and you should see WALKMAN
6. Right click on WALKMAN and select UPDATE DRIVER
7. Choose NO on the first page of the HARDWARE UPDATE WIZARD, Next
8. Choose INSTALL FROM A LIST, Next
9. Choose DON’T SEARCH, I WILL CHOOSE, Next
10. Click on USB DEVICE rather than MTP and let the PC update the driver
11. At this point I rebooted the pc…..don’t know if that was needed, but I won’t hurt.
12. Go to the Sony website and get the latest firmware (1.2) and save it to you desktop
13. Here is the link for the 103F: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/swu-download.pl?upd_id=4177&mdl=NWZB103F
14. Select the format option in the update window when you run it.

That made the MP3 player functional but Windows Media Player 10 still did not see it, so I upgraded to WMP 11 and that did it………all is good!
Hope this works for you……good luck.
