What is the make and/or model of this MP4 player?

My first inclination is that you need to reformat the storage area on this player. But with a make/model I can tell you for sure.

I have transferred itunes music video to my philips go gear opus 8G. I can see & play the files when the go gear is connected to the computer but they cannot be found once disconnected from the...

This player cannot play mp4 files only mp3 files. When the files are copied to the MP3 player the computer can play the mp4 files from the MP3 player but when you play these mp4 files straight from the MP3 Go Gear it cannot see or play these files.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

Downloading JPEGs to an MP4 Player

Hey Wythywndle,

Without knowing the exact model MP4 player you're referring to, I'm not sure that it's possible to provide exact instructions. Many media players however, are able to use a standard drag-and-drop interface, much like an external hard drive. If your player supports this function, you will need to have it connected to your computer in order to transfer files.

To use a drag-and-drop interface, you will need to access the "My Computer" option within most versions of Windows. Open one viewing pane for the directory where you keep the photos you want to transfer, and another for the MP4 player. The player should appear in the "My Computer" menu as an external storage device. Simply click on the files you want to transfer to the player, drag it over the player's icon in the other window, and drop the file into the player.

Please keep in mind that not all media players are able to support this function, and that you may need the software that came with the player to upload any new content. If you're still not sure how to proceed, you may wish to contact the manufacturer directly for more information.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use us.

Hi bandjo,

Try creating a directory called MP3 and add your music files into it.

See this link, the problem sounds similar.

Best of Luck,

Downloading from Itunes

Your Itunes library may consist of MP4 (Itunes format) files, WAV files, and MP3 files. If you're attempting to transfer MP4 files to your MP3 player, then no it will not work. You'll need to convert them to MP3 format first.

Here's the really bad news...the only way to convert an ITunes MP4 song is to first burn it to a CD. Then you need software to pull the song from the burned CD back into your computer in whatever format you choose. Nero is an example of software that will accomplish this. I use rewritable CD's to do this so you don't waste a bunch of disks.

This was by design from your friends at Apple.

Hope this helps.
