I had the same problem. I finally discovered what to do, as nobody seemed to know what to do, even Philips. Here is what I did to get the program going, even though it didn't see the connected GoGear Vibe (which Songbird did see as connected.)
1) Find where your Media Converter is installed. Mine was located at C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcSoft\Media Converter for Philips2) Locate the file named "MediaConverter.SET", which is in the folder mentioned in step 1.3) Use a text editing program, like notepad, to open the file you found in step 2.4) Within the file, locate the line that says "ProfileNeedActivation=1". In my file, it was on the 31st line.5) Change the line from "ProfileNeedActivation=1" to "ProfileNeedActivation=0" That is, change the number 1 to the number 0 (zero, no the letter O)6) Save the file.7) Run the program & enjoy.
A couple of notes: You may not be able to save the file once you're done editing. On my system, there were permission issues preventing me from saving the file directly. When I tried to save, notepad informed me that I couldn't save in the folder, and offered to allow me to save to my Documents folder. I did that, then copied the file from my Documents folder into the correct folder, as found in step 1. When copying, I chose to copy and replace the file. When I did so, the system required Administrative rights, which I allowed. That worked.Another point to pay attention to, if you use notepad to do the editing... When you go to save the file, it will default to saving as a .txt file. That is, it will take your file named "MediaConverter.SET" and try to save it as "MediaConverter.SET.txt". Make sure you either rename the file properly when you're done, or select the file type of *.* (as opposed to *.txt) when you save.
Ok, hope that helps save someone else the frusteration.

    no, these will not work, the GoGear Uses a Special Format Designed for it, SMV. it is a variant of mpeg, but it will not play mpeg. you will need to contact Philips Support.

How can i transfer pictures from facebook to to a philips gogear vibe 8g without it coming as a unsupported image


Use the synchronization software that came with the device, Philips Songbird. It will automatically convert most media to the proper GoGear friendly format during synchronization.




If you do not have Songbird, download it for Windows or Mac here:http://www.usa.philips.com/c/mp3-media-player/22126/cat/en/#/difference/philipssongbird.

Just purchased Philips GoGear Vibe mp3 video player 8 computer does not reconize it is connected


Your GoGear is likely in MTP connection mode, which requires proprietary drivers to connect. If you are trying to connect it as a standard mass storage device, switch the player to MSC connection mode. To do this, select "PC connection preference" in the Settings menu.

As an alternative, I recommend using the the Philips Songbird software that came with the device. This software is useful for automatically converting most media files to GoGear friendly format during synchronization. And, installing this software will also install drivers necessary for connecting the device in MTP connection mode. More importantly, when your corruption prone GoGear gets the familiar "file system error" screen, the software can be used to repair it.




If you do not have Songbird, download it for Windows or Mac here:http://www.usa.philips.com/c/mp3-media-player/22126/cat/en/#/difference/philipssongbird.

  • Charge your Philips GoGear ViBE for at least three hours before turning it on.

  • 4 Open "Computer" from the "Start" menu and locate the GoViBE icon to make sure it has been successfully connected to your computer.
  • 5 Navigate to your music files. If you're unsure about their location, start by looking in the "Music" folder under the "Start" menu.
  • 6 Drag and drop your music files from their folder onto the GoViBE icon in your "Computer" window.
  • 7 Right-click the USB icon with the green arrow, located in your taskbar, to disconnect your device. Click "Safely Remove hardware," then wait until your computer confirms that it's safe to remove the device. Disconnect the USB cable from both your computer and your GoGear ViBE.

I cant seem to be able to use my media converter for philips.I instaled it from my philips GoGear VIBE disk and it says I have to download alot of other stuf with it.


Ok, firstly, media converter is for video files only. For music use Windows media player or you can simply drag and drop files to your music folder under your gogear device.

Also videos downloaded directly from the internet may not work properly on the player. You have to first convert them into a format that is suitable to the player using Philips media converter.

Download the Philips Media Converter software. Make sure corresponding Codec for playing videos is installed before downloading. The codecs are required to play videos on your player. To download Codec, you can:
1. Go to www.download.com/windows
2. Search for "directshow codec pack"
3. Download and install one of the codec packs from the list of results

Now to download video (suppose from youtube), connect your player to the PC and click the icon "Internet video downloader" at your desktop.
Open the website where your desired video clip locates. Move the cursor over the video you want to download until you see the Download icon. Double click on the icon to enable download.

After downloading, the Media Converter for Philips will then start to convert the video to the format that suits your player. If your player is connected to the PC, the video will be transferred to the player automatically.

Philips GoGear Vibe 8gb purchased today. Is it supposed to have an installation CD with it?


No. there s no CD by pack.
if you want to install the device manager (for repair and performing firmware upgrade) and media converter (for downloading media on the website and converting formats). you will have to go to the official support website.
if your vibe is of 2nd generation, you need Songbird, get it also by going to support website,
