Re: my mp3 payer is si stupid
The device itself is not faulty. This is Microsoft's fault, not Philips'. Some of the songs may have Digital Rights Management (DRM) encoding that the SA6025 will not support. You can right click on the trouble music file, select "Properties," and select the License or Digital Right tab - look for the msg: This file is not copyright protected. Find out if the songs that CAN'T be transferred have this message. If so, then click on acquire digital rights (or some variant of that phrase). If the files tha CAN'T be transferred DO have Digital rights protection, then you must save the files in a different format that is stripped of DRM encryption.
Before going through ths elaborate process, start simple. Disconenct the GoGear from the computer, let the goGear upate, and then reconnect the goGear to the computer and resync - if that fails, pay attention to the above paragraph.
If the above is not helpful, send me a reply through the FixYa website (not my personal e-mail address) and I can give you additional information.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The songs are in the wrong format - they need to be stripped of their DRM license (illegal) or converted to mp3 format. The best, most legal way to do this is to redownload the songs as an Mp3 file, or re-rip your CD's in Windows Media Player in Mp3 format.
these problems occur because
the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not
is in a certain format.The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC
(iTunes), WAV, RA, etc.In addition,
every file format type is in a certain bitrate, size, etc.By far the most common issue is that the
music file contains a license or copyright (especially with WMA or AAC file
formats).Each Mp3 player only
recognizes a certain number of these formats.Every Mp3 Player is different.You will have to check your
Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which
formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes.When you try to download or
sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned
above.If you want to know what file
type you have, then you must find the location of the individual music file on
your computer, right click the title of the song, and select the option
“Properties” from the menu. Mp3 player product
documentation is not straightforward.If
a player supports only non-protected WMA files, it will merely say that it
supports WMA – it will not tell which type of WMA it supports.A player that supports DRM-protected WMA’s
will usually indicate such on the box (usually with a Windows Plays For Sure
logo – which is actually an ironic misnomer).DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and it is a type of licensing
system for WMA files.It is used
extensively by mp3 player music services such as Bearshare, LeapFrog, Napster,
and others.Not all DRM licenses are
created equal – there are licenses with “play rights,” burn rights,” and
“transfer rights.”Play rights mean that
you can only play the song on your PC – it will play fine on your computer, but
it will not play in your mp3 player even though it appears to transfer.Burn rights mean that the song can be burned
to CD.Transfer rights mean that the
song can be transferred onto an mp3 player that supports DRM-protected files.Then, there are unlimited licenses and
limited licenses.Limited licenses only
allow you to play a song for a certain length of time. You would have to pay
extra to continue using the song after that trial period is over – the time
length ranges from a few days to several months or longer.
Sounds familiar, I did that a few years ago, then it seemed that it formatted my whole mp3, then copied what i wanted. So if I wanted to sync 1 song, that was all on my mp3 after the sync...
That's the last time I used sync, bad memories.
I now copy manually from the PC to my Archos. Then you can control the order of the mapsand the maps you add. If you sych, WMP puts every map in the library in the Arhos music folder.
I just don't get the point of synchronising...
The song format is most likely wrong: read my "Tips and Tricks" on Song formats for Mp3 players: too long to repost here
Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained
By Tha Mp3 Doctor I have seen quite a few threads around Fixya in which the stated problem is that the Mp3 or Digital Audio Player will not load the songs; will appear to load the songs but will not actually play them in the Mp3 player once disconnected from computer; will skip the songs on the player, or show only “0:00” for file length; songs “disappear” all of a sudden (although this particular problem can be caused for many reasons not covered in this article); your store-bought/burned/ripped CD’s will not load into your Mp3 player; or get the error message “File Format Not Supported.”All of these problems occur because the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not recognize.Every music file is in a certain format.The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC, WAV, RA, etc.Each Mp3 player only recognizes a certain number of these formats.Every Mp3 Player is different.You will have to check your Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes.When you try to download or sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned above. Or, it could be a "formatting" issue: There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.
WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers. You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself: Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
did you click and drag the songs you want on to the right panel.then click sync then when it is done it should take you to a page with songs that you have synced. next to each song if they were successfuly downloaded it should say on the devide or portable media player if they don't then you have done something wrong and i can't help you there unless you figure out where you went wrong.:)
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
