Error Message when Sync-ing to Philips sa3125/02

Hi, I bought some songs from an online shop and for some reason they will not sync to my Philips mp3 player. It starts and then I receive an 'error' message. I know it's not the songs as they download fine onto my bloke's Samsung mp3 player. HELP!! I've tried downloading from different computers and from different versions of Mediaplayer to no avail.

Also, I've tried to drag and drop straight to the device, but the songs just freeze and won't play. I've no trouble sync-ing from CDs.

Hi, How to Download Music to the Philips GoGear

The Philips GoGear Micro Jukebox is a portable MP3 player that plays MP3 files and WMA files and also displays photos. Download music, copy it to the GoGear player and enjoy your tunes everywhere you go.

Things You'll Need:

* Philips GoGear and USB cable
* Internet connection
* Online music download service
* Secure method of making online payments
* Windows Media Player software

Download music in MP3 or WMA formats. You can buy songs from many online sources. If you choose to buy from iTunes, be aware that you will need to convert them from the native iTunes format to MP3 files. The iTunes software will do this for you.

Import the songs to your Windows Media Player Library if they are not already there. Windows Media Player can be set to check for new files in certain folders each time it launches, so this might happen automatically.
Connect the Philips GoGear device to your computer with the USB cable and click on the "Sync" tab in Windows Media Player. Drag songs you want to copy to the "Sync list" on the right-hand side of the Windows Media Player window.

Click on the "Start Sync" button at the bottom of the list pane when you have all of the songs on the list. You should be able to check at the top of the list pane to see how much space is available on your MP3 player in order to make sure you have enough room.

Wait while the files transfer and then disconnect the player from your computer. You may have to click on "Safely Remove Hardware" in your system tray (usually on the bottom right corner of the screen) depending on your computer.

Have a nice day..

When I sync unknown error pops up

I'm not sure about error -48, but most often an error like this is caused by a corrupt music file not being able to be copied and stopping the sync. First, see if you can sync another playlist that doesn't contain any of the same songs. If it works, then it's just a matter of figuring out which song is corrupt. If you watch what song the sync is hanging on, sometimes you can pick it up quickly. ...good luck.

How do I sync my songs to media?

Use the program called Windows Media Player to transfer songs to the GoGear. A full version of the user's manual is available at

The sync error could be deeper - you are going to laugh, but many of the "Rhapsody" enabled Philips GoGear's are incapable of playing most Rhapsody songs. You may be getting the error message because your music service is giving you songs in DRM-encrypted WMA format, and the Philips is incapable of reading that format. Ironically, the older Philips can read that format - most of the newer ones can't.

Songs not synchronizing

Are the songs in either .MP3 or .WMA format? If not, you will have to convert them before syncing.

Otherwise, are you getting any error messages when you sync? What do they say?
Are you using Windows Media Player to sync?

My philips gogear (6 GB) MP3 player is really messed up and i need help

Here's what happened: When you first synced your GoGear to Windows Media Player, you may have set up the automatic sync option. When this option is selected, Windows Media Player will add EVERY song, picture, etc from your Library on your computer to the GoGear. Now, every time you sync you device, it adds every new file from your computer into the GoGear automatically. It will even delete songs from your GoGear that were on there before.

Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your GoGear connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portable media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding songs/files you don't want into your player.
