Sounds like one or more system files have been deleted or corrupted on the player, possibly by formatting the player from windows.

Install and run the Philips Device Manager and select the Repair / Restore option. Follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the device and re-load the system files.

ALL FILES WILL BE DELETED FROM THE DEVICE. Back up files before restoring.

Hi adnlbsh...

Try this solution to your problem.
Go to Device Manager
To get to Device Manager you will:
Right click on My Computer>Properties>click the Hardware Tab>Device Manager.
After you are in Device Manager look for your MP3 player or Unit.
Here you should see no "Yellow" exclamation points.
If you do they they are telling you that you have a device conflict.
If you currnetly have your unit plugged in, you may notice the "unknown device" which would be your Player or Unit.
If you unit has an exclamation point by it, then you will need to click on it and delete it.
After you remove all devices with conflicts then click on refresh and search again for your MP3 player/Device.
The computer should install your device this time and solve your problem with connection of the MP3 player/Device.
Download and install Itunes into your PC...start the I tunes program, plug your ipod in and it then should recognize it and allow you to download to it.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up.

HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!:(


You should download and istall the Device Manager sofware from here:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/s/sa5285_02/sa5285_02_pal_eng.exe

After that run Device Manager and connect your player via USB. Device Manager should say, that your player reported an error and would you like to repair it. Press "yes" to start repair.

If the Device Manager doesn't give you the option to repair, you should turn off the player and connect it by pressing the volume up (+) button. This will turn on the automatic repair mode. After that, everything goes as I've written before.

Hope that I could helped!

Connect to PC and use device manager to repair


If you have a Philips HDD Series, it will not work with Windows Vista or Windows Media Player 11 except for briefly, then the player will stop working one day. Your only hope is to use it with Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10 - it is, basically, an obsolete player at this point in time.

The Philips Device Manager has a strange feature - it only properly updates your device if you have the newest version of the Device Manager:
Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager:
www.usasupport.philips.com - change your country/language as needed
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on the Software & Drivers section
Click on "Firmware Upgrade Software"
Install the new Device Manager
Open and run the "Update" tab

Make sure you install the disc with the Philips Device Manager on it first (or grab the device manager from Philips' website).

Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and click on the “Repair” tab. Then click on the “Repair” button to start the repair process. Most of the time, when your player is in that state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged in. If this is the case: Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.

Computer not detecting


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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.

THEN, do the "Repair" in the Philips Device Manager

Player Problem, Connect to PC, Start Device Manager


Make sure you are using Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10. If you are using Windows Vista, then the player is not compatible. If you are using Windows Media Player 11 then you will need to uninstall it to roll back to version 10. Problem sounds like one or more system files have been deleted or corrupted on the player, possibly by formatting the player from windows.

Install and run the Philips Device Manager and select the Repair / Restore option. Follow the on-screen prompts. The Device Manager is on the product CD. It should be installed along with the drivers for the player. If you still can't find it, follow this link to download it: http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?scy=GB&slg=ENG&mid=Link_Software&cat=MP3_PLAYERS_CA&sct=HDD_AUDIO_JUKEBOX_SU&grp=PORTABLE_ENTERTAINMENT_GR&session=20080303095703_86.155.41.177&ctn=HDD075/17&dct=FUS&did=ENG&file=/files/h/hdd075_17/hdd075_17_fur_eng.htm

This will format the device and re-load the system files.

Player Problem, Connect to PC, Start Device Manager


You need to load the drivers and "gogear" has to appear in your synch list in WMP. Look into previous replies I have posted to find the software link. Copy all the music onto your hard drive so you can put it all back on using the synch feature.
