Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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
