DO NOT RESET IT JUST CONNECT IT TO YOUR PC AND FORMAT IT BY CLICKING RIGHT ON THE REMOVABLE DISK DRIVE ICON AND CLICK ON FORMAT THEN PUT YOUR SONGS AGAIN BUT BY SCANNING THEM BY ANY ANTI VIRUS BECAUSE HANGING IS DONE BY VIRUS.
THANKS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR :)

Install the latest "Songbird" software. Here is a link to version 2.4 and make sure that you have 250meg available on your hard drive. Also, make sure you don't have any conflicting mp3 software installed.

I can'install songbird My laptop (OS Vista), It asks for Administrator Password and I don't know what to do! Help!!!


Hi evabonito,

From the sound of it, perhaps your laptop settings are requesting the administrator's password (your laptop password) to ensure that you (the administrator) would like to install the software?

To my knowledge, Philips Songbird will not ask for an administrator password during installation.

Here is an excellent Support Site for Philips Songbird, including FAQ's, a chat link, software and drivers: http://ow.ly/5PTZu

You can also reach dedicated Consumer Care agents to troubleshoot your mp3 issue by calling 1-888-744-5477.

To install Philips Songbird:

The latest version of Philips Songbird is available for download from www.philips.com/songbird.

Tip: For optimal playback of Philips Songbird, please always have the latest version of Quick Time and Windows Media Player 11 (or later) installed before installation of Philips Songbird.
  1. Go to www.philips.com/songbird.
  2. Click "Download Philips Songbird".

  3. A window will pop up. Select "Save" to start downloading Philips Songbird.
    110707072341_76202.jpg

  4. Double-click the file you just downloaded to start installation.
  5. Select the desired language and your country.

It says file system error after i tried to change it to mtp so i could download vids


Take a look and see if it has a reset button hidden in the side or back ..in a hole ...If it has..open it (power on ) and after that push in that hole with a stylus or sharp object (ball point pen ) until it restarts..This should reset it to factory settings and make it work ..
If it do not has such a button you will have to open it and remove any power source to make it forget the settings ..or ....!!!!!!!!! get to the support site and download the firmware and reinstall it clean into the device ..cause the file error means it may be missing some important system files and it can not boot proper..

The songbird I downloaded doesn't have the option repair my device


Philips Songbird has a repair feature that you
can use to restore VIBE to the factory settings.

Caution:
This function erases all files that are stored in the device.

1. In the Philips Songbird menu bar (at the
top), click on the Tools pull-down menu
and then select Repair My VIBE.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions to
complete the repair procedure.

Thanks.

My philips gogear vibe is frozen and wont move from screen its on and wont power down, I have pluged it in to see if that will work and nothing, what do I do?


Try the repair function of the Songbird software and restore VIBE to the factory settings. Before you proceed, bach up your files stored on VIBE if possible because the following procedure erases all files you have on the player:
1: Launch the Philips Songbird on the PC
2: In the Philips Songbird menu bar (at the top), click on the Tools pull-down menu and then select Repair My VIBE.
3: Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the repair procedure.
I hope this will help you.
If you haven't Songbird it can be downloaded from Philips website: www.p4c.philips.com/
Thanks

It wont turn on after it shows the phillips screen then it said file system error its an 8gb go gear mp3 player. HELP ALL MY MUSIC IS IN JEOPORDY!!!!!!


Hello :

I recommend you to reset your device to solve the problem .

Take a small object like a paper clip and use the edge to stick into the small reset button on the side next to the usb connection .

Or Try [ power + volume up button & hold for 3 seconds ]

..........................................................................................

Your mp3 player has two types of memory in it. The hard drive (where the music and photos are stored) and the Ram (where the firmware and active files are temporarily hosted).

When you soft reset your GoGear, it flushes the RAM, and restarts the operating system (which is why the contents of the hard drive does not get erased).

You can "hard reset" the device, by formatting the drive and resetting it to factory defaults in the Settings field. This is the closest thing to a "hard reset: that's available with an HD based MP3 player.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE !

You can try running a Repair in the Philips Device Manager, but it will probably not work - get a replacement - either through the store or Philips. I can tell you exactly why the msg is coming up, but I've explained it so many times over the last year, i am tired of explaining so many times. just trust me. Run repair - when that fails - get it replaced.

My sa3345/37 turns on and says philips but turns back off and when i connect it to the computer it just freezes and stays like that


Install and run the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Switch off the player, or press the reset button.

Press and hold [VOL+] whilst connecting the player to the PC.

Device manager should report device error.

Follow on-screen prompts.

This should format the player and re-load the system files.
