    Are the songs in either Mp3 or wma format? Toose are the only audio formats that the device will recognize.

    If you are using some music from Limewire or other P2P sources, they can cause audio problems as well.

    Otherwise, I would format the device and transfer just the songs that arent playing and see if they play.

    Best of Luck.

My xbox wont play the downloaded tracks on rockband 2

Are you using the same console that you were using when you purchased the Rockband 1 songs? Can you play the songs if you sign into xbox live? If you are on another machine or have ever sent your console in for repairs, and you can play the tracks when signed into xbox live then you need to transfer the DRM(Digital Rights Media) to your new console.You will need your new/repaired machine signed into xbox live and a computer that is online. Then go to and follow the steps. You will be rocking in no time. Party on Wayne.

If you have recently upgraded to Windows Media Player 11, either manually or via Windows Update, this could be the problem.

In this case, uninstall Windows Media Player 11 from Add or Remove Programs, in Control panel.
Also uninstall Windows Media 11 runtime.
This will roll back to Windows Media Player 10.


If you are already using Media Player 10, this problem could also be caused by corrupt firmware on the player.
make sure you have Philips Device Manager installed, from the product CD.
Run Philips Device Manager, and select the restore or repair option, then follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and re-flash the corrupt firmware. All tracks on the player will be deleted.

Reload a few tracks to test.

Phillips Gogear 30G Playing problems

The device itself is not faulty. This is Microsoft's fault, not Philips'. Microsoft no longer supports Jukebox. Use Windows Media Player instead.

Some of the songs may have Digital Rights Management (DRM) encoding that the player will not support (once again, Microsoft's fault, not Philips). You can right click on the trouble music file, select "Properties," and select the License or Digital Right tab - look for the msg: This file is not copyright protected. Find out if the songs that CAN'T be transferred have this message. If so, then click on acquire digital rights (or some variant of that phrase). If the files tha CAN'T be transferred DO have Digital rights protection, then you must save the files in a different format that is stripped of DRM encryption.
