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).

My mp3 player wont play anything

hmmm, that means that you may have synched some songs that are not fully compatible with your go-gear. although it is still mp3, it may have some "codecs" issues with it. and thus making your go gear crazy. what you can do is delete all the songs you have there, and make a fresh start from scratch, that way, you'll know.

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.

Transfer music to Philips Nike PSA220 MP3

You probably need to update the firmware of the player to version 2.9, which you can get off the philips website. This is the page for the player which has the firmware and updated musicmatch software they want you to use. Not sure if it will work with Yahoo.
