Yellow triangle says to connect to pc, when i connect it it shows the picture of it being connected, however this does not solve the problem. and windows media player 11 doesnt recognize it. It has been recognized before but not now. Im sure the problem lies within the go gear.

Install and run Device Manager from the product CD.

Select the repair option, and follow the on-screen prompts.

NOTE: ALL FILES LOADED ON TO THE PLAYER WILL BE LOST.

If this doesn't work then it may be that the hard disk is faulty. There is an easy way to find out. The following procedure allows the player to connect to the PC as a removable drive. If the Pc reads the drive, then the drive is ok.

Connect the HDD1630 to the mains adaptor and the PC.

Before the computer has a chance to recognise the player, press "Power" and "Vol +" to reset the player.

As soon as the player resets (screen goes blank) press and hold "Vol -" until the PC recognises the player as a removable drive.

Try to access the player through "My Computer" as you would the main hard disk.

CLICKING HARD DISK is usually a sign of a problem with the hard disk. If this is the case it will have to be replaced.

The HDD16X0 series use a standard 6Gb Microdrive which are readily available, and much cheaper than the official Philips replacement. The new drive would need to be "Repaired" using the Philips Device Manager.

All I want to do is run the playstation thru my computer. Do I have to connect it to the internet to do that?


not internet but your home network.
i'm not sure you can use your playstation through your computer. but you can access your pictures, music, videos that is stored on your computer from your ps3. if you have the latest version of windows media player it makes it easier.

Using Windows Media Player 11 as the server
Open Windows Media Player 11
From the toolbar, select Library then Media Sharing
Check "Share my media"
On the PS3 - Under Video, Photos or Music, select "Scan for media server"
Go back to the PC, and you should see a pop up showing an unknown device trying to connect.
Allow the device, and everything should work.

The pc is unable to detect the sansa disk


If you are using Windows XP: verify the following operating system requirements are met. - Windows XP SP2 or higher - Windows Media Player 10 or higher
Download and install the latest Windows Media Player if it's not installed.
If you are using Windows Vista: If the player is seen in My Computer when using MTP mode, but not showing in Windows Media Player. - Download the hotfix from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939211. - Run the hotfix.
Refresh the driverd
1 - Connect the Sansa player to the PC The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery charging or full. - If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is readily available. Ensure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub. - If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in as a storage device in an explorer window, then the screen is just not working.
If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.

Computer not detecting


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

THEN, do the "Repair" in the Philips Device Manager
