Hi there: I would go to the device manager on your computer. If your GoGear is telling you to. I don't know your operating sysltem. I'll assume XP as it's the most common now. Click, Start... Control Panel...Performance and Maintenance...System...Click the Hardware tab...Click Device Manager...Then find your device on the list...Right click on it and select unisntall. let the Device manager remove it from the system. Reboot the computer. Reinstall the disc that came with your Go Gear, If windows will not find it automatically. This will start you from the beginning. A fresh start. If you have a different operating system do a search for the "Device Manager" under the help section. I hope this helps, Jeff

How do i put music on my philips gogear sa261


If some CD came with it, pop in the CD and do what it tells you to. If not, than you can use Windows Media Player and sync the music from there. There is a small "Sync" tab on the top of the media player, and plug in your device and it will recognize than you start putting the songs on it.

Downloaded songs but won't play on go gear 3020/37 how do i fix


First try opening the gogear device and click on music right after the welcome screen. Select either "All Songs", "Artists" or "Albums" to find your songs. If you downloaded your songs, they should display on the screen of philips gogear, then you can select them to play on your headphones

Only some audio formats (.mp3 .wav and .wma will be play on philips gogear SA 3020/37)

Philips gogear sa261 doesn't switch on...


WARNING: this process will erase all songs off the GoGear.
Disconnect the GoGear from computer.
Turn the GoGear off.
Hold in the volume + button.
Reconnect the GoGear while holding in the volume + button.
Continue holding the volume + button.
After 5-50 seconds, Windows will pop-up a "Found New Hardware Wizard." - complete the wizard (BTW, you can take your hand ff the volume + button now).
Good To Go (Gear)!

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 http://www.philips.com or .co.uk 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 t.hassall@ntlworld.com

I will provide you will instructions on how to.

Downloading music


The device itself is not faulty. This is Microsoft's fault, not Philips'. Some of the songs may have Digital Rights Management (DRM) encoding that the SA6025 will not support. 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.

Before going through ths elaborate process, start simple. Disconenct the GoGear from the computer, let the goGear upate, and then reconnect the goGear to the computer and resync - if that fails, pay attention to the above paragraph.
