Question about Philips PSA612 (4 GB) MP3 Player

1 Answer

Not Loading Songs/Repair not Available

I've had this mp3 for about a year now and it worked fine. I removed some playlists to add different ones and they wont sync. When I bring up the device manager it says that a required file is missing and wont let me do anything, it just brings up a blank internet explorer window. I've tried returning it to its factory setting and it still wont load any songs. It'll sync one or two occassionally and then stop even though my computer isn't frozen.

Hello I recently bought the phillipsgogear vibe and I don't know how to down load songs to the MP3 player

here are two methods for loading that model i know they're long but they will work either one will do whatever you prefer :)

**Drag and Drop**
Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder, available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.
--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

How to seperate music files. I would like to add individaul playlists. Instead of all songs grouped together and you have to shift through all songs to get to the one you want.

Hi shannitar,
You can try placing the music files in different folders. If your mp3 player supports playlists (which it should), then go to the folder where your music files are kept, use ctrl+ click to select those you want to add to the playlist IN THE DESIRED ORDER, then right click and choose "creat playlist". A .pla file (or any other extension) will be created, which you can now play on your mp3 player.

When i want to add new songs to my sons rca jet all the songs

Place the new songs in their own playlist, name it something like 'temporary', or 'newest', etc. Save it, then sync that playlist to your player. It will be on there as a different playlist, but if you want them all to be in the same, you may have no other choice but to overwrite them all everytime. Not really sure either if there's an option in Media Player to add only the new ones.

Probelm with playlists

The Vista compatible software may work different, but I have mine set to Repeat OFF, and I have no problem with playlist play. Is it possible that the songs that you put on your playlist are in the wrong format? If they were streaming files, or DRM-encrypted WMA's, there may be issues with playback. Convert the songs in your playlists to mp3 format ON THE COMPUTER, and then delete the playlists that are not working OFF YOUR SANSA. And then re-add the playlists to your Sansa.

"Playlist On The Go" on a Philips 4 GB SA6045 mp3 player.

I just figured out how you clear the songs from the "playlist to go". go to playlist to go, then when it shows the songs you have added press the up button and you will see the words "clear playlist to go", press the forward button and it will ask you to clear it or cancel, select clear and it will tell you it's cleared.

Once a playlist is created, you must remove the entire playlist from the mp3 player to re-add a playlist with additional songs on it.

How do you add a playlist to the player!!!

There is another way but that is called Favorites. First go to settings on the player and enable advance then go to one of your songs and press the select button then it will give you an option that says add to favorites? choose the check mark to add that songs to your playlist. Also there is a way to add playlist using windows media player. The steps given would be for windows media player 10. First click on the Library Tab thecn click on the arrow for the Now Playing List choose New List then Playlist, now add songs to your newly created playlist by dragging them to the drag items here window after you have choosen all the songs you like click on Now Playing List and choose Save Playlist As.. After saving the playlist change the settings of the player to Autodetect and connect the player to the computer. Now wait for it to be detected by the computer and click on SYNC tab on the windows media player software. There are two windows the left is where you will choose the playlist the right your mp3 player. Choose the playlist that you have created and click on START SYNC now it will be transferring the playlist to your mp3 player just go to Music then Playlist. Hope this helps :D

How to create multiple playslists for M250

Alright, well if you are adding songs to your MP3 player by using Windows Media Player, you can create playlists there, sort the songs into what playlists you want them in, right click the playlist, and click "add to sync list".

If you are manually copying and pasting the music into the mp3 player (that's how I do it) it's a little less obvious... For me there are three main folders: Music, Playlists, and RECORD. So we want to go to the playlists folder. In there, assuming you have at least one playlist already, you can copy and paste it, naming it something else and changing its properties as you see fit (right click -> properties). To add songs to the playlist, you go to it's properties, and under the references tab, drag the music files from wherever you have them stored and drop them in the references tab. This won't move your music, it'll just add them to the playlist. and.... guess that's about it. Hopefully that helped.
