Question about Philips GoGear ViBE Digital Media Player

"File Format Not Supported"

Even after running a file through the converter that came with my GOGEAR Vibe 4GB- changing it to SMV, it still gives me a "File Format Not Supported!" message. After receiving the message twice, I updated the firmware and it is still doing the same thing. (Plus, even some of the files that were pre-loaded onto it give me the "FFNS" message. Is there any converter available that will work with the Vibe?

SOURCE: Converting file to video format ( i.e. SMV format)

Get another video converter and convert it to Windows Media Video (WMV) then convert it to SMV videos from there. IT works 100% Guaranteed.

SOURCE: whenever i try to play

"File format not supported" means that the song that you've downloaded into your MP3 player is NOT an .MP3 file format. For each MP3 player have their own supported file formats. You need to check the manual of your MP3 player to see what are the supported sound file formats (i.e. .mp3, .wma, .mp4). Then check the file format of the songs that are saved in your player.

If the songs are supported but you're still getting the error message, try to delete all the songs and then download the songs again and save it into your player. If the same problem occur, then it may need a firmware upgrade or reformat.

Thank you and good luck!

How to put vedios on the mp3


It seems that this device only plays one video type. Meaning that you'd first have to run all your video files through a converter, and then you can put the converted file on the device, and only then will it be able to play video files. The supported file types are wmv and smv. There might be some others that I havn't come across yet though.
Here's a download link to a converter for this device: link Simply put the output type to either SMV or WMV and convert the file. Copy the converted file to your device and it should be able to play.

I hope I was able to help. If I did, please don't forget to rate my solution.

I can't convert my videos to the format that the Philips GoGear Vibe can support.


Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses.

I can't play videos in my phillips go gear vibe sa2vbe04.


Your player can play video file if its format is suitable. If you install the Philips songbird software you can convert your files with it and the player will play them after files transferred.

The software is downloadable via this link:

Does the GoGear SA3245/37 Player support WMA with DRM? Mine gives a File Format not supported error. If there is an update for this, I can't find it.


File Format is SMV for videos

To add videos to this player you need to use the software Philips provided. It's a bit complicated to use so follow the instructions carefully. The software will convert the videos to a Philips format to enable you to add them to the Video Folder. You can't just add a file as this will not work, it needs to be converted.
Hope this helps you.

Hello experts! How do I convert movies from WMV to the format supported by a Phillips Gogear vibe Mp3 player(smv), without downloading any foreign software? What can Rhapsody do, if anything?


You can't. You need to install a program that can convert video files to another format to another that suits your MP3 player.
There are commercial programs as well as freeware programs on the Internet.
I suggest you Google search for these programs.
