Re: where do i get the program to install music on my go...

You should try using Windows Media Player, I'm giving you guys a link too Windows Media Player 11, but you can get a lesser verson. If you already have windows media player. You should be able to SYNC music from your computers music library into your mp3 player! I hope this helps.

I cant seem to download music to my go gear...i mean the usb is plugged in but my file woont show up on the computer...ill its doing is charging!please help...

Hi Soccer,

1-there are high chances that your go gear is infected by a computer virus.
2-open your go-gear drive in the compression/decompression program WINRAR and see if it shows your files.

3-if it shows your files there you are lucky you can save them elsewhere and scan them with an antivirus program

4-if it does not show your files you should install ubuntu (its free u can request a CD from ubuntu website), windows OS viruses do not execute in UBUNTU so you can copy your data and format your go-gear.

5-if that does not solve the problem i am afraid you will loose your data, but do format the drive
6-you can also install a fresh copy of the firmware to your go-gear from their website

i hope your problem will be solved,
if i solved your problem do not forget to vote for me and rate me. :)

When I first plugged the player into my computer to download music onto it, it came on, then nothing. It wil not come on again. The computer does not recognize it plugged into the port.

Here are the possible causes of the problem:

1. Defective battery
2. Loose wire connection
3. Corrupted program

Any of these problems should be checked by a pro or by the manufacturer. Testing the battery, soldering the loose wire or re-install the program, is not a task that we can handle easily. Contacting the manufacturer would be the best way to do.

Good luck!

Go into control panel/add remove programs and make sure you remove any Apple remnants of programs. Do you have USB 2? I have had problems using mine on USB 1 as it was too slow. Hope this helps some.

Shows "this device cannot start" when i plug in the device

My advice to you would be to go get a new media player that isn't a phillips product. The headache that the hdd 1630 caused me almost made me go insane. I spent countless hours on the phone with tech support. They even sent me a new 1630 that I had for 2 months when the same problems happened again.
This thing is nothing but a expensive paper weight.

Music manager


Well here is what you can do that may work

1.) go to the manufactures web page for your device and download the new drivers for Vista (ONLY IF YOU DONT ALREADY HAVE IT).

2.) Download the music managers software for windows vista.. eighter from the devices manufactures home page or you can try this

3.) You can transfer music directly to your device by copying and pasting it.. You device will show up in Compuer as a drive..

Let me know what happens or if i misunderstood your question

Wont connect

Try using Windows Media Player (version 11 should be fine) to sync music files to it. Using drag-and-drop to the device folder only sometimes works (and usually doesn't).
