Question about Philips GoGear SA5285/37 Digital Media Player
The firmware update just runs and runs and never finishes. How long should it take? I can see my songs via My computer, but if I try to play or delete them I get an error about the path being invalid.
Is there a way to either format the player or do some kind of factory reset other than the reset button.
I read somewhere about holding down the volume + key before connecting the player with it off, should delete all the songs. It connected but the songs appear intact, (but aren't). Another place said to hold down the "loop" key and connect the player. Again not able to get past the "update" screen. It loads about halfway and seems to stall.
I just repeated the steps above on more than one computer until it finally connected and showed the songs, then I deleted everything, restarted it and voila` all the menu's showed up. Then the first thing I did was reset to factory settings. After that it worked perfectly. I don't really know what combination really fixed it, but I kept hitting the reset button, restarting while holding down the volume + key and the <loop> key until it eventually responded.
