Philips HDD120 MP3 Player Problem

It will not accept downloads from my pc as its version of WMP is much older than mine and I am unable to upgrade it as the process is too high tec. for me. I have spent a few hours trying unsuccessfully on the Philips site. I have a Philips Gogear which is fine and have downloaded lots of music from Limewire so I do know how to use one. What do you suggest, please, because the item is currently useless to me ?

Go to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/readme.aspx#1792680

and follow the instructions on how to rollback to Windows Media Player 10

OR:
Dowload the latest version of the software from the Philips website - this will uninstall and reinstall a good verison of the Philips software. and then you should be good.

Difficult and timely - a bit. But the only way to save the player.

I want to upgrade my microsoft 2003 to microsoft 2007


If you purchase the Upgrade version of Office 2007, the upgraded version will install over your older version. Microsoft made it a lot easier for customers to upgrade.
Good luck!

I uninstalled the previous flash player, but am still unable to download successfully flash player 9 or 10. What is the problem?


Adobe has created its own version of a program to uninstall Flash Player, because others have experienced this issue as well.

First, make sure all other apps are closed... you may want to be sure by launching task manager and closing apps or stopping processes that aren't needed.

Uninstall and then download the latest version. Be sure you have Admin priviledges when you install.

Error when trying to download MS strrets and trips 2006 w/ GPS lo


I have used every version of streets & Trips since 05, and have never had any issue with Win Media Player, currently using streets 2009 on one machine with Windows 7 RC1, which has WMP 11, and on another PC streets 2008 and Vista with WMP 11. You may need to change your default program settings for media back to WMP if you ever had another media player installed.

Windows media player can't play .wmv files


  • Firstly a UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterrupted Power Supply - meaning emergency backup power in the event of a mains power failure. This is not a type of PC.
  • Secondly - Windows media player does not support every type of movie format, as Microsoft Update it from time to time, some formats will still not be supported, these are known as codecs.
  • Thirdly, codecs to support your particular format can usually be downloaded and added to Windows Media Player, however i can not think of any reason .wmv files are not supported by Windows Media Player.

You could try re-downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player from one of the links provided below.
WMP 11 will support the latest codecs, but if for some reason you find yourself needing the older version, use WMP 10.

You will most likely have to remove your current version of WMP, and you can do this by using Windows Add/Remove programs.
  1. Click on the Start menu button ( bottom left corner of your screen. )
  2. Click on Control Panel.
  3. Click on Add or Remove Programs.
  4. Click on Windows Media Player in the list.
  5. Click Remove ( right hand side of the listing )

Microsoft WMP 11 is available by clicking on this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx

Microsoft WMP 10 is available by clicking on this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/10/default.aspx

WMV 11 is available by clicking on this link:

I'm a bit late to the party here but the solution is to right click the shortcut to the Philips DMM and run as an Administrator. It all works fine if you do.

Dell DJ Gen 2 Won't connect


if your Dell DJ player is no longer recognized by the upgrade firmware even with the correct, original device driver installed, then you will need to install a windows 'MTP' driver by doing the following. Note that this applies to Windows XP only.

1. make sure you have the SP2 XP upgrade.

2. Install Windows Media Player 10 or roll it back to version 10 if you are using a later version. You can roll it back by going to 'Add or Remove programs' and uninstalling any WMP upgrade from the 'Change or Remove Programs' dialog window. Note: don't uninstall WMP enitrely from the 'Add/remove windows components' dialog.

3. Go get this file: fixup.zip Unzip it in a temporary directory and run the fixup.cmd by double-clicking in explorer or using the windows 'Run' command. Follow the instructions it prints in its DOS window about deleting the Dell device in the hardware manager.

4. plug your DJ player into the USB port. XP should now say 'Found MTP device' or something similar.

5. Get the Dell DJ 1.02 firmware from their support site appropriate for your player. Run the firmware upgrade. The software should detect your player this time.

A good reference for the Dell DJ stuff is here: gotzune.com

Note: I can't personally recommend the 'PlayForSure' firmware as I have not been successful upgrading to it. WMP 11 does not seem to work with the Dell DJ but WMP10 does and the device Sync function works just fine.

For almost ALL of the MP3 players out there that seem bricked due to a firmware upgrade failure or some other reason, they can be usually restored in a simlar way by installing a basic 'MTP' driver which allows windows to at least send a file to it, and by putting the player into a recovery mode as defined by the manufacturer.
