Hi,

I want you to upgrade ur firmware as this solves most of the problem..

1. Plug the player (should be detected as an MTP device)
2. Format the device
3. Put the .rom and .img files (4.03) in the root directory of the player
4. Disconnect the USB cable and switch it on
5. You should get the upgrading firmware screen and then it turns itself off.
6. if you turn it on and get "no space for DB. delete at least 18mb error", plug into computer and format it again.
7. If you turn it on now and get a blank blue screen, just repeat steps) 3 and 4 and it should work this time.

the 4.06 upgrade is fairly straightforward once you have 4.03. just double click the exe file and hit upgrade.


4.03 Firmware
(UMS / MSC)


4.06 Firmware (UMS / MSC)



3.05 Firmware (MTP) Goodluck,
please don't forget to rate me as fixya..

Try removing all of the other info from the listing, except for the album, artist, and title. This is strange, but if you could tell me what brand it is, then it could be something much simpler.

How can I upload album art onto a philips gogear vibe for all my artists? I have album art inside my folders and i had itunes embed the art into the files when i uploaded them; however the art only shows...


There are 3 possible ways in getting the album art for your music album.
  1. Album art may be obtained from the online Music CD database that Windows Media Player uses.
    Note: Not all music albums have album art available in the online CD database.
  2. From the online music store where you purchased your songs or albums, the album art may be downloaded along with your purchase.
  3. You may also create your own album art by transferring your favorite jpg photo into the selected album folder and rename it to Album Art.jpg.
To download album art from the online database and transfer to the player.
  1. Make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet.
  2. Launch Windows Media Player.
  3. Go to Tools> Options> Player.
  4. Make sure the "Enable picture support for devices" check box is selected.
  5. Click the Apply, then the OK buttons.
  6. Select the "RIP" tab on the task menu bar.
  7. Insert your music CD into the CD drive of your computer. The Windows Media Player will take a few seconds to show the content of the CD on the display.
  8. Click "Find Album Info". The Player accesses the database hosted by WindowsMedia.com and displays information about the album in the Album Information pane. The album art will be shown if available.(Note: For some music CD, album art may not be found in any of the online database.)
  9. Click Finish to update all the information about your album and show it in the Rip pane.
  10. Connect your Device to the computer.
  11. Select the tracks that you would like to rip by clicking in the check b ox next to the track.
  12. Click the Rip music button to start ripping the music CD.
  13. Once the tracks are finished being ripped to the library, go to the Media library and select the songs that you have just ripped.
  14. Add them to the sync list and transfer them into your Device. The album art will be transferred along with those selected songs.
  15. Disconnect the Device from your computer.
  16. Make sure that the option in your Device has been selected to display the album art on the device, at Settings-> Album art.

To create your own album art and transfer it to the Device
  1. In Windows Media Player , right click on the song you want to update the album art of.
  2. Select "Advanced Tag Editor" option.
  3. In the screen that pops up , select the "Pictures" tab.
  4. Use the drop down list to make sure that the type of picture you add is the Cover (front).
  5. Click on "Add" to associate a picture as the Album art for the song and all the songs in that album.
  6. Add this (and other songs from the same album) to the sync list and transfer them into your Device. The album art will be transferred along with those selected songs.
  7. Disconnect the Device from your computer.
  8. Make sure that the option in your Device has been selected to display the album art on the device, at Settings-> Album art.
You can also click on this link to show the graphical steps on how to upload/add album art on your songs.

Hope this information helps. If it does, please do not forget to give me a rating and a comment.

Stucked at Refresh database


When the Sansa reads "refreshing database," what it is doing is going through all the songs you've loaded on to it, pulling out the "tag" information (Artist, Album, Song Title, Genre) so it can add this information to its own database which it uses to display the songs to you in its menus.

If it gets stuck during this process, usually it's because of a corrupt song file, or a song file in a format it doesn't understand.

Note that the e280 is only able to play MP3 and WMA audio formats. If you've loaded a different type of audio file onto your Sansa, you'll need to remove them.

If the songs you've recently loaded have all been MP3 and/or WMA, you may have loaded a corrupted file onto your Sansa. Try removing the songs you recently added, and see if the problem goes away.

  6. Plug the MP3 player into the computer.
  7. Click the "Sync" button to the right of the "Rip" button at the top of Windows Media Player.
  8. Select "Songs" under "Library" in the left column of the software program.

Adding albums to e250


The songs are in a format that this player does not recognize, or the license on the songs does not permit transfer to an mp3 player, or it has an expired license - it is one of the three.

Best Buy Musical Digital Store Problem


Resync one more time - disable any options that automatically add missing title/album info, b/c it will really screw up obscure albums and songs that appear in more than one album - double-check Rhapsody help site for instructions on how to disable this automatic feature.

Album art not loading


I not entirely 100% sure, but the album art is only supported with WMA, as the album art image is embedded inside of the wma files themselves and not stored separately on the mp3 player.
