Re: videos

First perform a repair and then a firmware upgrade (also: make sure that you ran the videos throught the ArcSoft Media Convertor on the installation CD for the GoGear).

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

Skips Through Songs without Playing them

Do you have it set on SHUFFLE? That may be the problem - SHUFFLE will play songs randomly instead of in order.
You can tell if it is in SHUFFLE mode when you look at the screen between the battery ICON and the PLAY ICON -
Press the top right button until there is nothing between those two icons.

2 problems: (1) battery (2) skipping songs on playlist

There is a random mode - check the menu settings to see if it has been activated. Alternatively, you coould have downloaded fixed-term license songs.

My insignia NS-2v17b MP3 player will only play 3 songs. The other 56 songs downloaded on it are skipped. While trying to go between songs the MP3 player will beep several times. I counted and it beeps for...

Yes. You have to have an active account to keep listening to those songs. On another note (no pun intended) anything that you OWN in your music files will play for you.
I quit the subscription from Best Buy, deleted the songs I didn't own and now I am satisfied.

I can't Download Videos on my insignea any more..

One possible cause for this is improper format of the video file. I just got an Insignia Pilot, and the player is very specific as to the format of the video files it will play. I'd recommend taking the video files you want to add, and converting them using the Arcsoft Media software that came with the player. I have to run all of my video files through the conversion process before the player will recognize them. Hope this helps!

Song skipping

Do the songs skip when they are played on your computer? If they aren't, it could be an issue with the iPod.

Player skips songs

I think you should ask yourself these questions: 1) Are the song formats compatible with your MP3 player? 2) Is it possible that the website(s) you downloaded them from had/have given you faulty songs? 3) Am I smart enough to figure ot without PC Geek's help that I might need to try to download a different song on the same computer, the same songs on a different computer, or a different song on a different computer? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should have your solution.
