Have you installed the proper drivers?
when in the windows explorere menu the go gear can be found, you can handle it like a hard ddisk an d copy the mp3's manually onto it.
if recognized as player, try to open any mp3 on it using winMP or get vlc-player or winamp(for free!)
instead.
if player is not properly recognized by win,
there is no proper data management available, too.
good luck

Stuck on Scyn screen!


It is normal for it to display the "Do Not Disconnect" screen.
It is not normal for the Windows Media Player not to recognize it.
If you have Windows Media Player 11, update the firmware.
If the PC is not recognizing the device:
Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged
Try another USB port
Reset the player

If that fails:
Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager:
www.usasupport.philips.com - change your country/language as needed
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on the Software & Drivers section
Click on "Firmware Upgrade Software"
Install the new Device Manager
Open and run the "Repair" tab

If still nothing:
Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns 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. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.


If these methods fail, call Philips to see if you are still in-warranty.

Im not able to download music on the go gear mp3 player


You have to use Windows Media Player to transfer songs. If you have lost your manual , do yourself a favor and get it from Philips website.

I dont know how to transfer music to my philips mp3 player


You must use Windows Media Player, because the Musicmatch service that it was originally tied to was discontinued in October 2007. Manuals and software can be found at www.usasupport.philips.com

Make sure you run the installation CD, or grab the software from the Philips website - this device will not work properly if Philips Device Plug-In is not installed. Does Windows Media Player 10 recognize the GoGear? If so, then the absence of a drive letter will not be a huge problem. If not, restart the computer and try one more time. A word to the wise - running this GoGear on a PC running Windows Media Player 11 will cause irreversible damage to the player. If you have Windows Media Player 11, rollback to WMP 10 - instructions are on the Philips and Microsoft websites.

If all else fails, 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.
