I have a philips go gear 30gb. it doesn't play music correctly, i have tried device manager to fix it but it always failling. i have also tried to format the device but it couldn't. can someone help me...

If the Repair failed in device manager, this player is done. It is not compatible with Windows Vista or Windows Media Player 11 - it will work for a time, and then fail. Call Philips and see if you are still under-warranty.

Device Manager can't read the device

Here is something you can try:

Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

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.
