Question about Philips GoGear SA261 MP3 Player
My player says there is a player problem and to hookup to pc and start Deveive Manager but i can not find it any where Please help i need to locate the device manager for my player any sugestions
Once you have the Device Manager, click on the Repair tab. to find Device Manager:
Go to www.usasupport.philips.com, enter in your model number - SA261; on the next page, click on SA261/17 (not /17B); click on software and drivers; then click on, Firmware upgrade - software
If this fails, enter model sa6087 and click on the "Device/Firmware Manager" link under the software & drivers section for that device
If this fails, go to start-->settings-->control panel (if using Windows XP), click on Add Hardware (with the GoGear connected), and run the Add Hardware wizard
Vista has a feature that allows you to add the driver by searching on the internet;
1) Go to www.microsoft.com, enter your mp3 player model number in the search tab and see if a new driver has been developed for this device to make it compatible with Vista
2) With your mp3 player plugged in to the computer, go to Start --> Control Panel --> Systema nd Maintenance --> Device Manager
3) Find your mp3 player on the list and double-click the device; click on driver tab and then update driver - select the option that allows you to search the computer AND the internet for the driver (make sure you are connected to the internet BEFORE selecting this option); if you do not see your exact mp3 player name on the list, look for a similar looking name on the list such as "MTP Device"; also, look for devices with a yellow exclamation mark next to them - this is a sign of a device needing a repair or driver update
If all of the above fails, reply to me - I have a few other tricks up my sleeve.
