Re: songs

This might be because your not using philips song managing software. For example iPods need iTunes in order to put music on.

Philips should have there own software you use to put songs on.

When you brought your mp3 player it should have come with some GoGear software for putting music on.

You could alway's try or depending on where your from for software.

If it didn't come with any software try using Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to syncronise your songs and put them on by using that.

If you need help trying to do that just let me know at

I will provide you will instructions on how to.

When you unplug the mp3 player, you remove the device from the computer. And the computer can't really read any data that isn't there now, can it? :3

I have my h-100 connected to my laptop it looks like i have emptied all the music files but when i unhook it i still find music on the h-100 how do i completly empty this device

Try this method...

Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.

Please do not forget to rate me.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Empty Song Folder - I followed the instructions from the quick start guide to to load music onto my sansa clip 1gb mp3 player and it shows that it copied it to my player but once I disconnect the usb from...

The songs are in the wrong format. They probably have a restrictive DRM license that limits playback on mp3 players (although the songs may play fine on your computer). iTunes format will not work at all. The best way to avoid a problem like this is to only use songs that are in mp3 format.

Song's won't load, even though the files show

Yeah, the songs are in the wrong format for your player.There are some DRM-protected songs that allow you to play the song on your computer, but they won't actually play on an mp3 player even though they appear to transfer. If you download ALL of your songs in mp3 format, you will never have this problem.
