Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Not adding songs?

I got my mp3 player at christmas so it really isn't all that old. It will charge, it lets me delete songs. Yet the second I try to add any song it says it's either copying(if i try to do it manually) and never finishes. Or syncing but never finishes either If i stop the sync it says your mp3 player is either not working, or going to slow. Any help?

You will need to reformat the GoGear in Windows Media Player, but do a firmware upgrade first - open the Philips Device Manager and click on the Update tab. Then click the update button. After the firmware upgrade is done, open windows Media Player.
REFORMAT FOR WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER - Erases Everything: Connect your GoGear to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Philips Go Gear SAXXX" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything, and make your player properly read in Windows Media Player.

I had songs and could listen but i got a new computer and went to charge my shuffel and now when i try to listen theres no music and the light blinks green then orange and no music playes how do i fix

It sounds like you did more than charge your shuffle. You must have also synced it with the iTunes on your new computer. When you synced it with a new computer, it asked you whether you really wanted to delete all of your songs from your iPod, and apparently you answered "Yes".

Copy your songs from your old computer or from your backup of your old computer to your new computer, import them into iTunes and sync again. That will recover your songs.

Accidentally deleted 39 songs on mp3 player while adding new music. Went down from 218 songs - 179 songs

Hi, Well if you have deleted the songs you can not recover them in any way.What you can do is to upload new songs through your PC to your MP3 player.
Thanks! mannu_rakesh

Current files on gogear mp3 cant be replaced.

The HDD6330 doesn't respond well to Windows Media Player 11 - I know it's a pain, but you may have to rollback to Windows Media Player 10 to get it to display correctly (don't worry - you will not lose your existing files by doing so).

It won't let me delete songs

  1. We Too had a hard time deleting a song but found the solution..... Put the mp3 play in the MSC mode through the settings do not put in auto.....when your computer prompts that the music player is connected it will have a screen that asks play music, open folder to veiw files..... or take no action... you neew to click on the open folder to veiw files..... when this screen loads find the song or songs that you want to delete right click and then delete it will only delete from the mp3 player.....took me two days of pissing with this mp3 player to figure it out......

If you want to delete EVERY track off the player, then reformat the player in Windows Media Player - it's a shortcut - see my "tips and tricks" on formatting mp3 players

If there are artist, album traces, then you need to click on every subfolder under your device in Windows Media Player and delete every trace that way - tedious, but effective

-Tha Mp3 Doctor
There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details

If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files
