Re: cant turn my gogear on it Freeze´s
WARNING: this process will erase all songs off the GoGear. Disconnect the GoGear from computer. Turn the GoGear off. Hold in the volume + button. Reconnect the GoGear while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + button. After 5-50 seconds, Windows will pop-up a "Found New Hardware Wizard." - complete the wizard (BTW, you can take your hand ff the volume + button now). Good To Go (Gear)! -Tha Mp3 Doctor

I see that you mp3 will not work now after adding Audio from a different site.
It is possible that the format of your mp3 was compromised or shall I say corrupted, that only way is to format the mp3 again and start a fresh audio list all file on your mp3 could be corrupt now.
Reformat your mp3 and try adding audio using only application or program, mp3 players have specific formatting when adding audio and form other site it may be different and could damage the file system.
Waiting for 4 day will really not work that will just let the unit stay rested and not do any fix, Reformat the Unit add Add Audio an try it again, just an advise use only one program/application when adding audio on your mp3 to prevent file corruption.
Have a nice day.
Thank you for choosing Fixya,
You can definitely use Windows Media Player - in fact, it is the reccomended program.
From your description, it sounds like you might have turned your mp3 player on before fully charging it. Let it charge for 3-4 hours before adding music or doing anything else. The "updating" message will eventually go away as long as you don't unplug the player from the computer before it finishes updating. If you do unplug the player from the PC while it is updating, you will effectively destroy your GoGear.
if ur mp3 player sits for a minute it might freeze! This happened to me a little bit ago! You cant turn it off ur on! All u have to do is takeo ut the battery and put it back in then turn it on! Keep doing it if it happens again! Glad to help.
Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution. 1) Back up all files on the GoGear 2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) 3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button 4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard). -Tha Mp3 Doctor
