Question about Philips HDD1630 MP3 Player
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.

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.
