I thought I had deleted all the files from my Gogear MP3 player but when I tried to load an audio book onto it, it said that there wasn't enough space! Can anyone help please?

Could plug into your computer via usb cord. go to the start computer drive letter IE a,b,c,d and right click that drive letter properties and quick format the mp3 player will erase all unimportant data and should have all space available again.

How do I delete music that I downloaded by mistake, on the GoGear VIBE audio player 4GB ???


The only way really to delete files is to go into your laptop and click "open folder to view files" then you right click on whatever link you want gone.

I deleted all the files on my Philips GoGear audio video player how can I put them back I dont have a menu any more to put files


Plug the mp3 player into your computer with the cable it came with. Use Windows Media Player to browse your music and movies and "Sync" with your mp3 player.

Deleting files


You have to plug the mp3 player into the computer, double-click My Computer, double click on the icon of the GoGear, and then go into the Music folder - exercise caution: only delete music files - if you delete files that are non-music files, you will effectively destroy your GoGear.

Windows Media Player is more complex, but it is a safer way to delete songs:

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

7. Press the “Delete” button on your computer’s keyboard

Deleting Videos


WMP doesn't recognize the players video file system, or your computer does not have the right codecs for WMP to recognize that file type

Delete from windows explorer instead - but be careful to only delete the videos, and not the system files/folders that control video for this player
