Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Videos and Pictures in the Music category

In the Music category if you go in, all it lists is one video various times and some pictures that aren't supposed to be there. Is there an easy way to fix it or a way to reformat the player completely? The player was disconnected when it wasn't ready so i'm pretty sure it messed up then.

Re: Videos and Pictures in the Music category

NOTE: you only have to follow the process for ending automatic synchronization - repair is optional.

When you first synced your GoGear to Windows Media Player, you may have set up the automatic sync option. When this option is selected,Windows Media Player will add EVERY song, picture, etc from your Library on your computer to the GoGear. Now, every time you sync you device, it adds every new file from your computer into the GoGear automatically.

Here's what you want to do (this process assumes you have Windows Media Plaer 11 and windows XP - if you have another version, just let me know and I will give you modified instructions - reply to the FixYa website, not to my personal e-mail address):
1) Backup all files stored on your GoGear, as this process will delete all files from your GoGear
2) Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your GoGear connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portbale media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding songs/files you don't want into your player
3) As long as the GoGear now says, "OK to disconnect from PC," then open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
4) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
5) 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 succesfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new
6) you will have to re-add all your files (only the ones you want in there) to the GoGear as the Repair process has deleted all files on the device; as long as you followed the process in Step 2 above, then Windows Media Player will no longer add the files you DON'T want to the GoGear

Try this solution to put the files on the MP3 player

Installing Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio

You need to go to the Samsung website and download and install "Samsung Media Studio 5.
After you have Samsung Media Studio 5 intalled and running, then put the music on Media Studio 5 that you want on your MP3 player.
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"

How do u retrieve all pictures to show on your mp3?

Hello Charlez_B,

Just like videos, the pictures to show on your sansa have to be in a certain format. I'm not quite sure what it is, for videos I know they have to be in Quiktime format. You might want to check the format of the pictures that do show. I think the format is jpg, but am not 100% sure.

Hope this helped,

Problem with videos stored in SD card

The Sansa Media Converter (SMC) software is required to convert and transfer videos as appropriate to your Sansa or your microSD card.

I uploaded pictures, songs and videos into 1GB micro SD card. But in Sansa e250 am able to see only songs in it. am unable to view pictures or vidoes stored in SD card. please help me.

The Sansa will only show photos and play videos from its internal memory, not the microSD card. You can put music on the card, but not photos or videos.

Pictures/Music Videos.

For pictures:

Turn on MP3 player, goto settings, make sure USB Mode is set to MSC.

Connect to Computer, go to start, > my computer > double click removable disk drive > in the removable disk drive, should be a folder labeled PHOTODIR, drag all your photos to this, they have to be JPEG.

For Videos:

Its a little more difficult, I've included the link for a setup guide, at the bottom of the guide is step by step on how to do the video conversion:

Make sure the pictures/videos are in the right format first, suggested by the manual.
If they are not in the right format, use the Sansa Media Converter that came with the installation CD to convert them to the proper format.
