How do i download music on my MP3 palayer


You need to connect the player to a computer using an USB cable. The player will be seen by the computer as an external hard drive. Use the operative system features (e.g. file copy and paste) to transfer multimedia files onto your player.

Hi i have a gogear vibe 4gb and when i down load music it says its in the wrong for mat. i have tryed to it in mp4 for mat put it dose not work when try to play the music. can you help

This player only plays mp3 music files not mp4 files.
You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player.

For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.

Hi, How to Download Music to the Philips GoGear

The Philips GoGear Micro Jukebox is a portable MP3 player that plays MP3 files and WMA files and also displays photos. Download music, copy it to the GoGear player and enjoy your tunes everywhere you go.

Things You'll Need:

* Philips GoGear and USB cable
* Internet connection
* Online music download service
* Secure method of making online payments
* Windows Media Player software

Download music in MP3 or WMA formats. You can buy songs from many online sources. If you choose to buy from iTunes, be aware that you will need to convert them from the native iTunes format to MP3 files. The iTunes software will do this for you.

Import the songs to your Windows Media Player Library if they are not already there. Windows Media Player can be set to check for new files in certain folders each time it launches, so this might happen automatically.
Connect the Philips GoGear device to your computer with the USB cable and click on the "Sync" tab in Windows Media Player. Drag songs you want to copy to the "Sync list" on the right-hand side of the Windows Media Player window.

Click on the "Start Sync" button at the bottom of the list pane when you have all of the songs on the list. You should be able to check at the top of the list pane to see how much space is available on your MP3 player in order to make sure you have enough room.

Wait while the files transfer and then disconnect the player from your computer. You may have to click on "Safely Remove Hardware" in your system tray (usually on the bottom right corner of the screen) depending on your computer.

Have a nice day..

Problem in files downloading onto GoGear SA5125

Subscribe to an online music service that is compatible with your GoGear, such as Rhapsody's Mp3-Only service - I repeat MP3 ONLY - no other Rhapsody service will work.

Use Windows Media Player to transfer songs to your GoGear, or Rip CD's into Mp3 format - I repeat MP3 FORMAT - using Windows Media Player.

Videos must be transferred using the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter that came on the installation CD. You can also get this program from Philips website.

You will only be able to transfer photos to your GoGear if you have used the installation CD that came with the player. It contains a critical file that Philips has never posted to their website called the Philips Device Plug-In.
