Re: philips shoqbox

You have a file error: a system file may be missing or you have a format error on the SHOQBOX. To fix this problem: 1. Connect the SHOQBOX to the computer using the supplied USB cable. 2. Plug your SHOQBOX into a wall outlet with the supplied AC adapter. 3. Launch the Device Manager at Start->Programs->Philips->Philips->PSS110 (or the model number of your SHOQBOX) on your PC. * IMPORTANT: All music & content of your SHOQBOX will be erased once the factory setting is restored. 4. A dialogue box will pop up; click Restore and OK to confirm and start restoring the unit to its factory setting. 5. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the restoration. 6. The Device Manager will close automatically once the success message is displayed. 7. Transfer a couple of songs into your SHOQBOX to confirm if the SHOQBOX has fully recovered all the files. 8. Close all opened applications and safely remove your SHOQBOX by clicking on the icon on your Windows task bar tray. 9. When prompted, ?The USB Mass Storage Device can now be safely removed from the system?, click OK and unplug your SHOQBOX. 10. Your player will display ?UPGRADING FIRMWARE?? once disconnected from the computer. 11. After firmware upgrade is complete, it will reset itself, showing the PHILIPS splash screen. 12. Press to switch on the player again.

Can't Seem To Find The Music On My Shoqbox

Search for a program called 'Shoqbox buddy' which will rebuild the database on your player. Operation is fairly self-explanatory.

Once you run the program and navigate to the right location on the player it takes seconds.

Cant turn my phillips pss110 after taking it out of the computer

does the device immediately shut off after displaying the Philips boot screen? if so, the mydb internal database file may be corrupt or missing.

Get the free program "ShoqBox Buddy" and use the "rebuild database" function to see if that fixes it.

Shoqbox not playing or showing song loaded

Make sure you have the version of the Musicmatch from the Philips website first, and try again - Musicmatch discontinued their service in Oct 2007, making this particular Philips mp3 player obsolete.

Also, make sure the files you are trying to load are in Mp3 format specifically - this player cannot take DRM-encrypted WMA files.

Mp3 files missing

Make sure the music files are in the correct format specified on the product spec sheet; drm-protected files will not work, and most music services use them now

Can no longer connect with computer

possibly needing reset? Try pushing a pin into the reset hole under the back cover.

If that doesn't work, just wait until it runs out of power.

Then charge, and plug back into the computer

Possibly needing to format and reinstall the firmware. The firmware is on the site.

Good luck,
