I keep getting a "Buffer Overrun Detected..." error and my MP3 has gone completely dead (not battery related!) I can't even switch it on. I tried to run the device manager again and reload it but I am still getting the same error.
I had this problem twice, the player keeps displaying some pixels spreaded randomly on the screen when I press the play/pause button or when its connected to the pc, while Philips Device Manager keeps displaying the error:
"Buffer overrun detected! Program: ...hilips\SA21xx\Device Manage.exe A buffer overrun has been detected wich has corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated." (I have an old SA2115/02 device)
When I contacted Philips about this problem, they said to bring the device to them but it was out of service.
So I tried lots of repair/recvery programs and got to a point where I couldn't even format the player cause of the write-protected error. I was about to trash it when I tried this last method :
-I used an USB cable extender so I won't brake my PC's USB port
-I started Philips Device Manager
-I began pluggin/unpluggin the device repeatedly while Philips Device Manager was loading
-after the program loaded and recognized the player without giving me the error above, I left the device plugged
-I used the repair option, took a deep breath and waited until the operation was finished and voila!
Now I don't know if it will also work for you because I tried lots of rude methods wich I don't remember the exact order, like the first time I've repaired it, but it's worth trying.

Re: Philips Device Manager - MP3 - SA1125
First, make sure the GoGear is disconnected from computer. Then, hold in the volume + button and continue holding it as you re-plug it back into computer. Continue holding the volume + button for an additional 45-60 seconds (sometimes it doesn't take this long). Windows should go into recovery mode and resuscitate player.

Any time I've seen this error appear when playing a game it is caused by a bad graphics driver. I would suggest going to the website of the retailer that your graphics devices comes from and updating to the most recent driver and giving it a shot.
Many different things can cause buffer overruns. This is a common attack that hackers use to exploit bad C code. In this case, since it's a video game...I'm going to say graphics driver.
You can actually see an example of the same behavior here:
I recommend you to replace the battery . Problems with powering up the GoGear are often the result of an
exhausted battery. If you cannot power on the GoGear, charge the battery
with the supplied charger.
In some instances there is an error
with the device that is keeping it from powering on. Unlike the errors
that freeze the device, errors that keep it from powering on cannot be
cleared by pressing the "Reset" button. The errors need to be fixed by
using the "Firmware Manager." The Firmware Manager is a computer program
that restores your device to their factory conditions. You will be able
to use your device again after restoring it to factory conditions, but
you will lose all of the data on your GoGear.
To use the Firmware
Manager, open the installation CD supplied with your GoGear and follow
the onscreen instructions to install the Firmware Manager on your
computer. Plug the GoGear into the computer and check that your computer
is connected to the Internet. Open "Firmware Manager" on your computer.
You will be prompted to "Restore" the firmware or "Update" the
firmware. Since you need to restore your device to working order, select
the "Restore Firmware" option. Updating the firmware will not delete
the files or errors that are causing the GoGear to malfunction.
the process is complete and your GoGear can power on again, consider
updating the firmware. Updates give your device extra functionality and
repair errors in the device.
If you have lost your installation CD, go to Philips website and download/install the most recent version of the Philips Device Manager for your exact model #. Then open the Philips Device Manager and select the "Repair" button (with your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course).
If the Device Manager does not recognize that your mp3 player is plugged into the computer: Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns 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. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab.Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions. After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
Reset the player by inserting a paerlcip into the reset hole. If that fails, go to Philips' website and upgrade the firmware on your player to solve the freezing issue permanently. Actually, don't go to Philips website - run the Philips Device Manager and select Update. If the device manager won't recognize the player, unplug the GoGear, hold in either the shuffle button or volume + and reconnect it to the computer until a Found New Hardware Wizard window pops up.

Hola Amigo! Yo también soy de Argentina. Te cuento que yo tuve el mismo problema y no encontré la solución en la Red, pero no me quedé conforme y empecé a probar y por fin LO ARREGLE! No sé específicamente que fue lo que hizo esto pero te cuento que es lo que hice y creo que es la solución, ok? 1ero. hice una copia de todos mis archivos en el disco duro e hice un formateo al mp3. Después entré en la página oficial de Philips que es la siguiente: http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?scy=JP&slg=ESP&cat=MP3_PLAYERS_CA&sct=FLASH_AUDIO_PLAYERS_SU&grp=PORTABLE_ENTERTAINMENT_GR&session=20080716011205_220.127.116.11&ctn=SA2325/55&mid=Link_Software&hlt=Link_Software Si te cuesta escribirla poné en google: p4c philips gogear sa2325 y ahí te va a aparecer. Bajé el archivo que dice: Actualización del firmware - Software, Version: 4.16 Inglés Solicitud (1.34 MB), 2007-10-24 Y lo ejecuté a ese archivo. Aparentemente este archivo no hizo nada, no instaló nada, en definitiva pareciera que no hizo nada. Ahora abrí el Programa que me venía con el Mp3 que es el PHILIPS DEVICE MANAGER y ya el problema que decía BUFFER OVERRUN no apareció. Pero acá no se acabó todo, porque la versión que yo tenía del PHILIPS DEVICE MANAGER era la 1.1.6 y solo tenía una opción que decía ACTUALIZAR, y cuando yo ponía ahí me decía que la versión de mi Firmware no necesitaba actualización. Entonces lo que hice es bajar el siguiente archivo que está en la misma página que te dije arriba de philips: Software: Device Manager, Version: V.1.4.6 Inglés Solicitud (7.39 MB), 2007-10-25 Lo traté de actualizar al programa PHILIPS DEVICE MANAGER pero todo quedaba igual, así que desinstalé la versión vieja e instalé la versión que bajé, es decir la V.1.4.6 Después abrí el programa PHILIPS DEVICE MANAGER y para sorpresa mía tenía una opción a la derecha del botón ACTUALIZAR que decía REPARAR, hice click ahí, y cuando terminó el proceso mi MP3 había vuelto a la vida. Ahora lo estoy disfrutando!! Espero amigo que te sirva y si puedes, le traduzcas al Inglés porque mi Inglés es muy limitado. Suerte. CAETO - TUCUMAN - ARGENTINA
