First, makes sure your songs are in proper format for your mp3. The correct formats may be: mp3, wmv, wma, mp4.

Second, did the device fall off and hit something frequently? that might have caused a memory corruption, causing the player to freeze up.

Check if you can play just a few songs only, and If the player freezes even with just a few songs, the memory is corrupted and therefore must take it back for repairs.

hope this helps, have a nice day! ^_^

The songs you upload to your player should be in mp3 format, u will see them in the player but you won't be able to play the song.

You should connect your playes to the computer using the USB cable it has. It should appear as a Retrivable Disk. Depending on bran, some has a folder called music, Copy your mp3 files to that folder.

I have a phillips go gear MP3 player and when i turn it on it freezes only the words www.phillips/welcome.com screens shows. how to i fix this?


Hello

Your GoGear is freezing because there is an error in the operating system and can be fixed by resetting the device. Resetting the GoGear is similar to rebooting your computer. You will not lose any of the data uploaded to the device. To reset the GoGear, press the "Reset" button located on the left of the device. The screen will go blank for a few seconds and then turn back on.

If the GoGear freezes after uploading a file to the device or if one song or sound file freezes the device each time you play it, the file is likely corrupt and needs to be removed from the GoGear. Connect the GoGear to a computer and delete the file from the device.

I uploaded some songs in my coby705 mp3, but when i deleted the songs in my computer howcome it delete also in my mp3 when i uploaded a different songs? how can i save the songs in my mp3 sothat it won't...


Don't have the Mp3 player plugged in while you are deleting them. and if you don't have it plugged in then just make sure you have enough space to keep adding songs.

Video songs


this is because your mp3 player isn't meant to play video songs. its an MP3 player, meaning it won''t play AVI video files.

Philips GoGear: delete music from library & are there any Unicode


Here's the deal:
Open the Philips Device Manager that came with the install cd, and do a Repair - this will erase everything so you can start over from scratch. This will also take care of your squares issue.

No dice on the playlist issue - sorry.

Next, you have to disable the auto sync feature in Windows Media Player to prevent it from auto-loading all of those songs/files that you don't want. by opening Windows Media Player, highlighting the Sync tab, clicking on the little black arrow to bring down the drop-down menu, clicking on "Set Up Sync" (make sure your mp3 player is connected to computer, or this option will not appear), and unchecking the box that says "automatically sync files to my device". This will give you manual sync instead.

Music folder says no files


Check your local memory on your mp3 player. That's where the files actually loaded.

Mp3 wont play downloaded music


The device has 2 modes on it MSC and MTP, if you changed modes and uploaded songs in the other mode, they are only visible on the PC in that mode. But, the PC will show the total amount of free space on the device.

If this is not the issue, I would try formatting your device to remove everything and start over.

You can FORMAT thru My Computer>Device Name (e280)>Right Click and select FORMAT.



Best of Luck.
