I have a go gear the problem is it keeps saying connect to pc well a friend of mine tried to up grade it on his windows xp nothing happened and i would like to down load something on my vista pc but there seems to be nothing to manage my player on there. The computers dont know the player is plug in
Please someone that might know help this has been driving me mad
Reset the player by holding the off-switch and the
volume-+ (plus) switch., and as soon as the player shuts off, press and
hold the volume- - (minus) switch. The computer will see the gogear as a removable hard-drive now, so you can copy/paste music to the music folder. Though the drive might be recognized by Vista, even with the media player running I wasn't able to load music on the player. The files were on the player, as the computer showed, but the player couldn't see them. Only for winXP!

I understand your concern, these systems are daunting.
Open the box plug it in hit the start button and first screen is usually pick a language.
These new Windows OS are very user friendly and think it will guide you thru the process of getting started and connecting to the internet.
Depending where you purchased the PC many stores have help service at their locations.
Always maintain a secure physical backup(removable drive) for your priceless photos, music and documents. When these systems crash it is a train wreck trying to recover lost documents. Protect your personal information CC and the like.
If you have a second computer near by I would search for answers to questions as I go.(Microsoft websites are very helpful)
Updating to 10 early in the process is probably a good idea.
Saying "no" more than yes when it asks for more information.
Recently having to replace my tried and true XP has turned out to be a delight. In the whole process just plugged in the new and loaded up the programs that I used the most. I still keep the old XP running and have connected the two together to share the files to make it a little easier in the transition.
Windows XP is no longer supported, you should up-grade to Win 7 or buy a new computer. As for the DVD that it can't read, try it on a friend's computer and see if it works. If it does, your DVD/CD drive is defective or there is a software driver issue which means you can't receive support from Micorsoft.
It is exactly right... YOU are not 'in control' of the hard drive and your buddy's computer doesnt have the 'permissions' to work with YOUR files...
It MAY be possible to get the okay if he logs into his computer as the administrator.... it is NOT an actual 'hardware' issue... being able to see the files says that... XP and vista are 'close enuf' design-wise that drive compatability isnt it either...
If your friend can log in as 'administrator' he will likely be able to take 'ownership' of the files on your 'external' drive and get what you need!
If there is anyone you know that has Windows XP Pro CD, you can use their CD-key. You'll have to do another fresh install of windows. If your friends CD was registered more than 4 times you'll get a MS window to register. You'll choose you're state & a toll free number will come up for you to call. Most of the call will be automated. You might end up with a real person. Just say you only have 1 PC & you replaced a dead hard drive. MS will assign you a new key. Easy as pie. (You just need a friend with a real MS CD).
