Freezing on the Philips GoGear range can often be caused by r
protected (DRM) tracks.

If you have copies of the tracks on your PC, go to the folder in which they are stored in Windows Explorer or My Computer.

Whilst viewing tracks within a folder:

Click on view ----> details

Right click on any of the headings which have appeared in the right hand window and select protected.

Each file will be listed with a yes or no under the Protected heading.

Any files listed as yes will cause the player to freeze.

To test the player restore it from Philips Device Manager and re-load it with non-protected files.

If you find that the GoGear will not load the firmware upgrade, then:
1) Backup 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

You will now be able to load the upgrade

Also, if the Philips Device Manager says that your device is already updated with the latest software, then go to: www. usasupport. philips. com,and enter in your model number, HDD1630/17, on the next page select HDD1630/17 (not "17B"), on the next page click on software and drives, and click on Firmware Upgrade Software - this will ensure that your player really has been given the most current firmware upgrade

In my opinion you will have to upgrade firmware of your player. How to do it you can study on this website and download the Sansa Firmware Updater software also.

Please read and do these all, and I hope your player will work fine again.
Thanks.

Frozen


Please try to reset the player and see whether it helps.
This could be done by inserting a paper clip into the reset hole and press and hold for about 20 seconds. This should unfreeze the player.

All the best!

This should help you right here: Detach the player from the PC and turn the unit off. Then slide the power switch towards the power icon and hold the switch. Push the end of a pin-like object (for example, a straightened paper clip) into the reset hole, press gently and remove. Release the power button when the recovery mode appears. Select format (all) and select yes to format the player. After the player has finished formatting, select reboot. Then retransfer the tracks to the player as doing the format will erase the whole player.

MP3 Freezes on "System Loading" When I turn on.


What worked for me was, first downloading the firmware then formatting the MP3 player. Im sure that I did it backwards but it worked for me. Good Luck.
