Try installing the newest version fo the software from the Philips website first.
www.usasupport.philips.com
Enter your model number
On the next page, click on your exact model number without the "B" on the end
On the next page, click on "software and drivers"

If that fails:
Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

Is there any video converter that convert videos to dat format


Your Philips Go Gear must be loaded through the media convertor sofware that came along with your set. Please install the software on your PC, if not search inthe philips site for the free download of the media convertor for gogear. Now convert all the video files by selecting and converting before loading it to the go gear. Nwo it becomes easlier for you to upload any types of files.
Please have your PC in good order free from any virus , if not scan , delete off temporary files, defragment and install the media convertor.Hope this adivce helps. Good day

Non-Supported format detected


Some videos, like music videos, have a copyright protection system on them that will not allow them to play even if you use the converter. You can also go to Philips' website and get the upgrade for your Media Converter - worth a whirl.

"format not supported" - error message of death


1. songs which have copyright protection on aren't recognised by the player
2.you can't convert from WMA to MP3
3. you can't drag and drop from a CD you have to rip it first. i suggest you use windows media player for this as it is very quick you just put in the disk and click 'RIP'
4. you can down;load the latest media converter from the philips website which will actually convert things
5. try upgrading the firmware (from the philips website) you need to download the new device manager and then follow insructions from the web page
6. try reparing your device using the new device manager (it will delete anything you have on there

Philips SA6185/02 8GB MP3 Player


It's unlikely to be a fault with the player.

I have just run the Arcsoft Convertor with a DivX encoded .AVI file and it processed correctly.

One possible cause of this problem is that you may not have DivX codecs installed on your PC.
To check this, try playing your .AVI file in Windows Media Player. If it doesn't play, then you will need to download the necessary codecs. Try www.divx.com

If it plays ok, then continue---->

I assume you are trying to convert and transfer directly to the SA6185.

In this case try converting the file before connecting the player and transferring:

Open Arcsoft Media Convertor
Drag the .AVI file into the program window
Click the "Select Player:" drop-down menu and select SA61xx manually.
The "Convert To" setting should default to Folder.
The default folder setting is My Documents/Arcsoft MediaConvertor/

Click "Convert" to start the process.

If this works, then when the process has finished, navigate to the converted file.
Connect the player to the PC, and drag & drop the .WMV file directly into the Video folder of the SA6185.
Disconnect the player when the display says "Ok to disconnect" and restart.
Go to the video option and your movie should be listed and ready to play back.

If the Convert process doesn't work then, the file is most definitely the cause of the problem. If so, post again with details of the file, and how it was created.

Problems putting ANY videos on Philips GoGear SA6045


Install and run the Media Convertor software from the product CD and follow the on-screen prompts. This will convert the video file to a .WMV file of the correct resolution for the player, and allow you to transfer the video to the player.

If this doesn't work, check that the original video format is supported by the convertor software.

Not there


if the cmos utility does not register a device, your windows won't
open the case, fix the working device carefully, go to the cmos utility to register the device and your windows will recognise it.

Download music


The Media Converter only works for video files. Music files must be transferred using Windows Media Player. The Philips Device Manager is only good for Repairs and firmware Updates.
