Question about Philips GoGear SA178 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Resume where stopped listening

I recently started downloading books to listen to on my MP3 player. I must of got lucky on my first couple of books each part was one chapter. So I would quit and forward to the next chapter when I was ready to begin listening again. Now I find that the parts aren't always one chapter they be multiple chapters so when I quit it's hard for me to find the chapter I quit at. Is there anyway to mark or get the player to resume where you had finished the previous time.

Review the pages in the manual regarding organizing your tracks into folders, and select "Repeat folder" in the folder view menu.

There is no bookmark option per se with this GoGear, even though other GoGears have the feature. You cannot stop where you left off - just note the time on the track when you stopped, and fast forward to that time when you next turn on the goGear.

Fast forwarding for listening to books

I use a Creative Zen V Plus, but have a similar problem.

First, an explanation: the issue is probably with the timecode in the audio track. This can happen when the audio file is created on a computer. The audiobook was likely "ripped" to a file from the original audiobook CD, and your player may not like the format the file is in. The best solution in this case is to recreate the audio files yourself. First remove all of the files from your Sansa for that particular book. Then use CD-burning software on your computer to create an audio CD (not a data CD!) from the files you got from the library. Finally, use the software that came with your Sansa to transfer the audio CD back to your Sansa. This way you know you are getting a correct format on your player.

If you have an additional issue (like me) where the tracks are too long and go back to the beginning every time you turn your player off, you may have to use an audio editor such as Audacity to chop the long tracks up into smaller tracks, but this is quite time consuming. It is best to acquire audiobooks in smaller tracks in the first place. This is the problem I have been faced with while using to listen to audiobooks.

Audiobook from netlibrary

ebooks are usually copyrighted or another type of audio format, you have to make sure the ebooks your trying to listen to are MP3 or Unprotected Windows Media Audio files, that is all this device will recognize.

There is not a fix for the pause/resume issue - it is a major problem for just about every mp3 player that claims audiobook compatibility

"Synchronize to continue your subscription"

To get rid of that message, you need to connect your Sansa to your computer and open the Rhapsody software to "deauthorize" your Sansa (assuming that you're not going to be using the Rhapsody service). The following URL gives you two options on how to deauthorize your device (look at the bottom section of the page):
