Re: locked mp3 player

I don't know this model, but most mp3 players have a lock switch. This is handy, enabling you to lock the keys so you don't switch it on or off by accident.

Look for a switch on the player. it might be marked "Hold" or "Lock" or have a padlock symbol next to it.

Let me know how you get on.

In your Windows media Player go into tools and select options. Select rip music and untick copy protect music. The music you have in WMP wont work. you will have to put them in again after you made the changes. Hope this helps

My philps gogear audio player

The songs that you are attempting to put on the Go Gear have a non-supported license type. They are either iTunes format or DRM-protected WMA's that are not compatible with the GoGear. Acquire songs that are in Mp3 format, and you will not have this problem.

How do i convert my rhapsody music files to play on my mp3

You have to get Rhapsody's Mp3 only service - I repeat, MP3 ONLY. No other level of Rhapsody service will work with the newer Philips' GoGear's - which is funny, b/c Philips co-branded with Rhapsody on the newer players.

Hi trying to put music on my Philips GoGear 8GB from Windows Media Player but it wont even read the device to even sync.Do you need a CD or is just plug and play?

Definitely run the installation CD - you can grab the software and manual from Philips website if you have lost it.

Not all GoGear's are created equal - some recognize DRM-protected songs - others do not; some use Windows Media Player 10, some use Windows Media Player 11, and some can only use Windows Explorer - check manual for details - with Philips players, every word is important
