Question about Philips GoGear SA261 MP3 Player
I have a Philips GoGear MP3 player, model SA261/17.I instaled the cd, downloaded the upgrades as suggested by philips, but when i try to download music, it tells me my software is out of date & no longer compatiable with the media player on my PC. The player it recomends is musicmatch, however they seem to have merged with yahoo jukebox and it wont work. I have XP, & had Windows media player 11 which is not compatable, so I uninstalled it and downloaded media player 10 which philips recomends, and that is what tells me Im out of date. There is no software upgrades on offer and I just want to put some music on this thing without having to use a discman which takes hours.
If anyone has any suggetions, please help me
My friend, I had the same problem. I however never use jukebox but I do have Windows Media Player 11 and I could see the songs being sent to the device. Even when I opened the device files on the pc the music was there. But when unplugging the USB and turning the actual mp3 player on, there was NO music on there. What I did is go on Philips.com and start researching away. I did rollback to the older version of Media player (10) by simply going to add/remove programs and following Phillips' own instructions. Also I thought it would be a good idea to download the most recent updated info Philips had for this device, like a driver or firmware they call it. Everything worked after that. I had no owners manual also, since I bought this MP3 from my barber at his shop after he got a new IPOD. SO I downloaded the owners manual and all additional info online at their website. Hope this helped. It wasn't easy but you just have to read. Also, it did take a while , good luck............RKALAWALA
