SOURCE: Philips GoGear SA6087/37 8GB won't sync songs anymore.

I had the same problem and sadly the only way to fix it is to go through and bring the mp3 player back to factory settings:\ it sucks but its the only way it will work.

When i put music on my pen drive it plays on my pc but not on my car stereo why ?


Chances are the music files are not in a format that your car stereo recognizes. Check the booklet that came with the stereo and look for acceptable file formats. (Something that says .mp3 or . something.). If it still doesn't work, the pen drive itself may need to be formatted for the car stereo to be able to recognize it. (Maybe FAT32 instead of NTSF). The information should be either in the book or on the manufacturers webiste.

Good luck!

Connect mp4 player to usb


USB ports on car stereos are not designed to be universal, regardless of what the USB acronym implies. They are typically designed for a specific product, either iPhone, Android, Blackberry, or a combination of those. They usually work with a blank flash drive (no operating system on it). That would be my recommendation: Buy a flash drive. $5-$10 invested will probably get you more storage than the GoGear and will work with USB.

The reason USB sounds better than the auxiliary input is because with auxiliary, the D-to-A (Digital to Analog) conversion is done by the GoGear, while with USB it is being done by the car stereo.

My philips gogear vibe wont turn on


Reset your GoGear with something sharp like the tip of a pen or the end of a paper clip,

if you're device isn't working properly or there's a frozen display.


Insert the sharp object into the "Reset" hole (located at the bottom of the player), and hold it there until the device turns off.


If resetting the device does nothing to restore the display, access the "Philips Device Manager" through your computer to recover the GoGear.


Click "Start" on your computer, then "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Aria Device Manager," and then "Philips Device Manager."


This will launch the "Philips Device Manager." Make sure the GoGear is turned off completely. Connect your GoGear to your computer while holding down the "Volume Up" button.


Continue to hold the "Volume Up" button on your GoGear, until the "Philips Device Manager" recognizes the device and enters recovery mode.


Click the "Repair" button when it appears on your computer, then folow the steps to fully recover the GoGear.


Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer and restart the device.


Recharge your device if your GoGear dies suddenly while playing.

Connect the GoGear to your computer via the supplied USB cord.


Plug one end of the USB cord into a functional, open USB port on your computer. Plug the free, smaller end of the USB cord firmly into the small USB jack on your GoGear and turn your computer on.

This will begin the charging process of your GoGear.


If recharging doesn't work, the battery may need to be replaced.

Check that your GoGear isn't in standby mode. Hold the "Power" button for two seconds to turn it back on.


hope this helps

Brisbane sd48 doesn´t read SDHC cards


I believe the Brisbane SD48 radio can only recognize memory cards up to 2 GB. Your SDHC memory cards probably exceed this 2 GB limit.

In car usb conection wont work


It appears this stereo is compatible with a limited number of mp3 players. I had the same problem with my Ford Edge Sync option. See if you can get a list of compatible players from the manufacturer/ dealer. If not, try different mp3 players until you find one that works reliably and purchase one.
