Question about Philips GoGear HDD6330 MP3 Player
How to backup and format the player
Right, the way to access your music etc to back-up the player is by doing a "Soft Reset" and then holding Volume Down(-) until player has powered up again and your computer has recognised the device.
So:- With USB plugged into PC, hold Power & Volume Up(+) for 3-5 Seconds or until the player powers off. Then quickly hold Volume Down (-) until the player has booted up. It should have booted up in "service mode" and allows your computer to recognise it as a removable Hard Drive which you can find in My Computer. This allows you to browse all the files & music stored on it which you can then copy and store on your PC as a back-up.
When you have done this you can rightclick on the removable hard drive in My Computer and select Format. :
When you've finished formatting you can reboot the player and let the Philips Device Manager "Repair" the player or if all else fails repeat the steps to start the player in Service Mode and copy all the backed-up files across again.
WARNING:- I do not know if this is the recommended solution but I did it today with my Go Gear and everything works as it did before.
Hope it helps, Good Luck!

To backup the data:
Connect the RCA Pearl to the computer
Double-click My Computer
Double-click the icon corresponding to the RCA Pearl
Double-click the Music folder
Create a temporary folder on your Windows desktop
Drag music files from the Music folder fo the Pearl to the temporary folder on your desktop
Are you sure you need to format the player?
Try updating the firmware first, especially if you have Windows Vista

Yes you can download the firmware updates.
You will lose any data on it if you check format player.
If you have that unchecked you will still have all your old songs music and video's
