Open up the device manager program.

Push the reset button on the device with a pin.

Press and hold the Vol + button whilst plugging into the PC.

Device Manager should go into repair mode.

Follow the on-screen prompts.

When finished, disconnect usb and reconnect quickly. Player should say loading, and then go into transfer mode.

Disconnect and reconnect player again. Screen should say

Repair is now complete.

* If player flashes "Initializing" & "GoGear" alternately, then resatart the process again. If it still doesn't work then there's not much else you can do.

CD player will not open

is there power? if there is and it does not open then probably something is either stuck in it or the gear is not any more functional due to gear issues or the motor of the gears are not anymore responding.
When ejecting does seem like it is trying to open but it won't then it is a gear issue, I do not suggest prying it out.
Have it opened and checked for something that can be stuck or if the gears are somehow damaged or not properly seated in their place.
Have it serviced for checking possible this is just a gear issue and the player may still be working and in tact.

How to format go gear mp3 player while doing computer starts not responding


There is a hard reset button on the Go Gear. It is recessed into the body of the player and if you look along the case usually at the bottom you will see what resembles something a bit larger than a pin hole.

Use a blunt object like a paper clip to access the button deep in the recess and press it once. The Go Gear should reboot itself and this hopefully will resolve the problem.

If not please let me know by adding a comment and I will be pleased to assist.

Thanks for using FixYa.
