Problems with Vista and video transfer

I have a philips gogear SA6045. I have two computers one with windows XP and the other with Vista. When I transfer videos to my philips with windows XP everything works fine. But when I try this same procedure with the same video with windows Vista, it either won't convert the video at all or it will transfer the video, but when I try to play it on my philips it says that the file format is not supported. I have called the customer hotline and tried many other converters besides the one that came with the product, neither have solved the problem. Can anyone help?

First, download the latest version of the GoGear software on the Philips website (compat with Vista).

Second, go to the Microsoft website and enter ArcSoft Media Converter in the search box to get addl software that will make it compat with Vista.

Third, check and see if the same file has the same DRM license on both computer. SomeGoGear's only read files with DRM encryption; others only read files without it. Make sure the licesnsing is the same on both computers - the Windows Media Player with Vista may or may not have this feature (if it doesn't get a PlaysFor Sure program for vista on the Microsoft website).

When i plug my new gogear aria into my computer it shows on the screen "DO NOT DISCONECT" and does nothing else. this is the second unit with the same situation. i have win vista. what now??? my name is...


Makes sure your pc has detected by going to MY PC then check to see if you can see Philips GoGear SA6XX. If it is there then you can transfer files to it normally. If you want to transfer mp3s its best to use mediamonkey or window media player. For videos you need to convert the videos using Media Converter for Philips which is on the cd or you can download it here http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA6045/37&scy=us&slg=en

Unable to transfer to mp3 player


Hi there,
Based on Philips SA6045 User's Guide, youou can transfer your media content in the following ways:

  • Using Windows Media Player 10 – Note: You cannot transfer all video files using this method. It is recommended to use Media Converter for Philips to transfer video files.
  • Using Windows Media Player 11 - Note: You cannot transfer all video files using this method. It is recommended to use Media Converter for Philips to transfer video files.
  • Using Windows Explorer - Note: While all files will transfer, they may not play back if the player does not support the format.

It is recommended that you use Media Converter for Philips to transfer your video content, and Windows Media Player (10 or 11) to transfer your music and pictures to the device. Use Windows Media Player (10 or 11) to transfer all video that you purchased online to the device.

Philips GoGear SA6045 need video support


All support for SA6045:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA6045/02&slg=en&scy=GB

Media converter software should be used to make the video files
appropriate before transferring them to the player.
The Media Converter Software zip file is under this link:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/s/sa6045_02/sa6045_02_mcs_eng.zip

Note:
First check the format of the video files that can be converted in the media software. Remember that not all videos can be
transferred, having copy rights sometimes.

DOWNLOADING MP3 PLAYER TO WINDOWS VISTA LAPTOP


For Vista compatibility with the SA6045 -

Philips GoGear Firmware Upgrade
You need to get the latest firmware upgrade from the Philips website:
1. Go to www.philips.com/support
2. Enter your country/language
3. Enter your model # SA6045 or whatever
4. Click on the link for your exact model # (the one w/o the "B" in it)
5. Click on "Software & Drivers"
6. Download the updated "Device/Firmware Manager"
7. Once installed, open the Philips Device Manager
8. Click on the "Update" tab, then the "Update" button (with your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course)
9. Your Mp3 players firmware will update automatically
If you do not have the latest version of the Philips Device Manager installed (the latest is the version from the Philips website), then clicking the "Update" button will give you a false positive saying "The firmware on your device is already up to date."
