Re: unplugged from computer by dog

First restart by pressing the volume + and play/pause button at same time.

If that fails, then:
Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

Car'nt get pic

The way I put pictures on my GPX is very simple. Hook it up to your computer, and open up 2 different screens for MY COMPUTER. On one screen pull up your picture documents, and on the other screen pull up the driver containing your plug in device. Go to the Pictures folder on your pulg in device, and just simply drag your photos over to that file. The pictures will copy over to your MP3 player and will show up in your Directory File once you unplug it and look. Hope this helps someone.

My Phillips 8G Go Gear won't play a lot of my songs that used to work before

I left my mp3 player hooked up to my computer over night...i'm thinking it was just a bug that worked itself out. I have no idea how that happened, but it works fine now.

Lost software for my Phillips GoGear

The Philips site offers the software you need.
If you have the Musicmatch player or windows media player 10
you should be able to download from either player
