MP3 playback stops at the last file in folder and does not continue to next folder

I have purchased Philips DVP5986K player and have observed that while playing MP3 files from a source which contains MP3 files placed inside many folders (at the same directorey level), the playback stops at the last file in the selected folder and does not continue to next folder. This seems very annoying as I have to manually select the next folder and then select first file in it to listen the files in this folder. The same thing happens when the lst file is reached in the second folder. The play stops again. Any remedy for this so that I can enjoy continuous music playback without every time scrolling to next folder manually?

Not much you can do.

You could rename all your tracks, and put them in one folder.

EG

ALBUM NAME - 01
ALBUM NAME - 02
ALBUM NAME - 03


ALBUM NAME - 10
ALBUM NAME - 11 ETC.

This way, the tracks will play in order within each album.

Use 2 digit track numbers or they will play 1,10,11,2,3,4, etc

How can i delete music from my player


Philips produces a variety of MP3 players that differ in capacity and design. All of the Philips MP3 players have one thing in common, however: the way that you manage files on the MP3 player. All Philips MP3 players appear as USB mass storage devices when connected to your computer. This means that you can delete files off of your Philips MP3 player using Windows Explorer, much like you would remove a file off of a USB drive.

To delete them, follow this instructions:

1)Connect your Philips MP3 player to your computer using the USB cable provided with your device.
2)Find your Philips MP3 player in Windows Explorer by clicking "Start" and then "My Computer." You should see your device under the section labeled "Devices with Removable Storage."
3)Double-click on your Philips MP3 player to view the files stored on the MP3 player.
4)Navigate to the folder that contains the files you want to remove. Your files are organized based on the type of file. For example, open the "Music" folder to delete music files.
5)Right-click on a file you want to delete and select "Delete." Click "Yes" when asked if you are sure you want to delete the file.
6)Eject the Philips MP3 player before disconnecting it. Click the "USB Mass Storage" icon in the system tray and select "Safely Remove Hardware." The system tray is in the lower-right corner of the screen.

How do i put audio books on my philips SA32xx? what kind of file does it need to be?


File? MP3 is standard. I myself have changed a few audio books as well as radio shows (War of the Worlds by Orson Wells) to MP3 format for my player, and have had perfect results.

Get yourself a decent FREE audio converter2_bing.gif from http://www.koyotesoft.com/indexEn.html

It's user-friendly. Just put your audio book (disc) into a drive, use the free audio converter to "rip" file(s) into a folder (while changing the format), and wait for it to finish.

TIP:
Set it to save "output files" as MP3 at 128-kbs, in whatever folder you choose... this creates a sound and rate of playback that is equal in composition to a store-bought CD. Also, remember to create a seperate folder (or sub-folder) for each project. This keeps files you want saved on your pc orderly.

Place the file(s) onto your player in the manner suggested by it's manufacturer (usually drag & drop). Que it up on the playlist and enjoy!

Why doesnt my gogear sync with my media player


your gogear has corrupt config files! you must power it off, and connect it to your pc while holding the menu button, and continue to hold it until the computer reconizes it as a usb mass storage device. when an auto play option opens, it will allow you to select "Open with folder to view files", select this option and navigate to the "CONFIG" folder. you must then delete all files inside of the config folder, then once your disconnect and reconnect your player, it should work perfectly,

I formatted my Philips SA1922 2GB MP3 Player and didnt copy file folders now i cant play music and cant find where todownload firmware


when you format any drive you erase everything that is on them. you need to find the original files from the manufacturer to rebuild your system. philips should have files to download on their website philips.com. make sure your item is registered and they should give them to you for free. next time be sure to only delete your files. and only format first time use storage devices. the player should have already been formatted for your use.!!!!

My songs won't play


First, download the file FS-MP3Fix. http://www.sendspace.com/file/6glhdb http://www.mediafire.com/?zmxojwittmf http://stashbox.org/149355/FS-MP3Fix.zip www.meggamusic.co.uk/temp/FS-MP3Fix.zip After downloading the file, extract it to the folder where all of the affected music files are. So you should have the folder FS-MP3Fix which contains ffmpeg (that looks like a MS-DOS based program), FSMP3-Fix (this is the program that we are going to use) and a DLL file named pthreadGC2.dll. But, we need those three files to be paste in to the folder where the music are, because the program will only read the directory where the music are in. If it finds no Mp3 files, the program will never work. So, paste the three (3) files in the folder where your Mp3s are. Okay, let's get it started. Open the FSMP3-Fix program. You will see a DOS-based window and you have to choose which language are you going to use (English or Spanish) or just exit the program. So, we choose English (and don't ask me why) which is no. 2. You are going to be asked if you want to continue the fixing of your Mp3 files (of course) that these actions are not reversible (well, if you want that strange playback to continue then why are you reading this, peace). Okay, after pressing Enter key, the program starts working. You will see the process of calculating bitrates of your Mp3 files and you'll be amazed that there are files created in the folder of your music files with _FS name at the end. If in case, the program does not stop working (which is always my problem) press and hold q to stop duplicating other copies again. The program create three duplicate copies which is a headache for me. If you find _FS okay, then remove the songs with added filename with _FS_FS and FS_FS_FS, because they are all the same.
Copy the songs again on the player
Then, play it,it should work.

Headset in problem at socket pin side


Try a different set of headphones - if these do not work, call Philips and redeem your warranty if it was purchased within the last year. Headphones can be replaced, but headphone jacls cannot be repaired.

ERROR


The SA6045 will only play unprotected .MP3 & .WMA audio files. It will also play .WMV video files.

Sounds like the tracks you are trying to play are DRM protected. This usually causes the "File format not supported" error.

If you are downloading these files from the internet, then you'll have to look elsewhere for files.

If you are ripping your own CDs to .MP3 or .WMA with Windows Media Player, then you need to change a setting in Windows Media Player.

Open Windows Media Player. If visible, click on "Tools" then options. If the menus are not visible, right-click at the top of the Media Player Window, then select "Tools" and click options.

Click on the "Rip CD" or "Rip Music" tab (depending on version).

Remove the tick from the box next to "Copy Protect Music" (or similar)

This will stop DRM protection on any further tracks ripped.

You will need to rip any DRM tracks again.

Please help me..im begging..this is really a big problem.. im afraid i can't use anymore my mp3..


When RCA first came out with the Lyra series the only way to get music onto the device was by using musicmatch jukebox that would convert your mp3 file to mpy before downloading it to the device. But now RCA has come out with a new firm ware update for these mp3 players that improved the players playback quality plus enabled it to use .WMA files. so first go to RCA support http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/select.aspx?u=downloads and find your player and download the firmware upgrade and install to your player its very easy and instructions are at the same site. You can now convert your music to .wma or use the free Real player that will convert mp3 to wma at the kbps that you request before loading it on. If your music is all ready in wma format you can use windows media player to send the files to your player. One last thing the .wma files that you put on your Lyra player need to be at least 128kbps or higher enhanced playback quality of wma files (160 kbps to 256 kbps).

Resume where stopped listening


Review the pages in the manual regarding organizing your tracks into folders, and select "Repeat folder" in the folder view menu.
http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/s/sa178_17/sa178_17_dfu_aen.pdf

There is no bookmark option per se with this GoGear, even though other GoGears have the feature. You cannot stop where you left off - just note the time on the track when you stopped, and fast forward to that time when you next turn on the goGear.
