    I tried to delete songs from GoGear (I use MAC) and actually now I can't even switch the Gogear on- it says that the memory is full and switches off.

Hi All,

I had faced this problem too. Apparently there is a solution to this, you would have to install xnjb. Philips gogear uses MTP protocol, which is supported by mac. You will have to install xnjb.

The HDD series is not compatible with Vista or MAC, so that might be your problem right there. If you are running XP, download the software for the device at

My gogear does not recognize by my computer what should i do

What should I do if my player is not recognized by my PC?

Reset it. Use a pen tip in the RESET hole on the side of the player.
Connect the player to the PC to see whether the player is recognized.

Faulty USB port, try connecting the player to another USB port (or try another computer).

Is your computer Mac or Windows? eg Mac OS 10.7.2 had issues recognising media players that could be fixed by resetting PRAM.

Install Philips Songbird software and try Repair mode. Note this will delete files on the player.

Is the philips mp3 compatable with mac computers?

fabricant says no but... yes. it is possible, but it is a hard task... to use philips gogear on a mac, switch your data connection on options to msc. after that, you can plug as a usb driver. if you want to sync it with itunes, you need to use a program called itunemywalkman, at this program, you will configure paths for pictures, videos, musics e etc, then sync.

Installation for philips gogear using apple macintosh

Can't. But, you can simply plug in the gogear into a mac USB port and manually drag music into the MUSIC folder. Files must go into that folder for player to recognize them.

Other than that, software only available for PC.

Download Problems

Two problems:
1) All GoGears are completely incompatible with iTunes, AAC format.
2) Most GoGears are completely incompatible with Mac's, even though the computer will recognize it and appear to transfer songs.

Using mp3 player on mac computer

There is no solution - the software is not Mac compatible -period. It doesn't say MAC-compatible on the product specs, therefore it is not Mac compatible.

Gogear 8gb

The HDD1830 is not Mac compatible. The database file has probably been deleted or corrupted. The player doesn't scan the hard disk on start-up, it only read the database file. Anything it doesn't read from the database file is ignored.

You will need to restore the player with the Philips Device Manager, and re-load your tracks.
