Grab the software from the Philips website www.usasupport.philips.com - since revamping the site recently, it looks like the original CD software may no longer be available, so load it by entering a slightly different model number - SA6087/37, for instance. click on Software and Drivers, and then "Device/Firmware Manager". After doing this, there is a firmware upgrade available through entering the correct model number of your device on the Philips website.

I didn't receive a CD Rom in my kit like stated was included so


You can get all the software for free from Philips website, although this one is generally Plug n Play. If the songs are not working, they are probably in the wrong format. The SA3025 can only read mp3 and UNPROTECTED WMA's (90% of WMA's are protected, and hence are not playable on the SA3025). iTunes format is also not acceptable to the device. Downlaod songs that are only in mp3 format, and you shouldn't have a problem.

Problem in files downloading onto GoGear SA5125


Subscribe to an online music service that is compatible with your GoGear, such as Rhapsody's Mp3-Only service - I repeat MP3 ONLY - no other Rhapsody service will work.

Use Windows Media Player to transfer songs to your GoGear, or Rip CD's into Mp3 format - I repeat MP3 FORMAT - using Windows Media Player.

Videos must be transferred using the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter that came on the installation CD. You can also get this program from Philips website.

You will only be able to transfer photos to your GoGear if you have used the installation CD that came with the player. It contains a critical file that Philips has never posted to their website called the Philips Device Plug-In.

Music download


The songs that you are playing are either in AAC (iTunes) format - which is not supported by the player - or they are DRM-encrypted. If you really do have an SA6045, the player can definitely handle DRM encrypted-WMA's. If you have a newer Philips - different model # - then the player may not support DRM-encrypted files. The best thing to do is to download songs (or convert songs from CD as the other helper suggested) that are in pure mp3 format. Examples of services that do this are Rhapsody's Mp3-only Subscription (other Rhapsody subscriptions are DRM-encrypted, which will not work); or Limewire (make sure the format you are downloading is mp3 and not something else).

First, run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager to start your player over from scratch.

Mp3 problems


With the SA4010, it is sensitive to downloading large amounts of information all at once. As painful as this might be, try downloading one song at a time.

If this is a problem that didn't exist before, try resetting the player once by re-inserting the battery. If single song downloads fail, and this is a new problem Repair the device (WARNING: this will delete all songs off your player):
1) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website
2) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button (on this model, you will actually use the play/pause button instead of the volume + button)
3) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off (if you haven't done so already) - hold in the play/pausebutton and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the play/pause 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 play/pause button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new.
