Question about Philips GoGear HDD6330 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Not recognized by PC

The Go Gear stopped working. When hooked up to the computer it will momentarily recognize the device. Then the message state a "USB Mass Storage device". But the device is NOT recognized. The drive is not recognized. I have tried rebooting the GoGear several different ways. Nothing seems to work. Does anybody other than ThaMp3Doctor have any useful advice? ThaMp3Doctor keeps pasting the same WRONG repair over and over wqsting everyones time. Any real help out there?

    Also, when you say the device is not recognized, do you mean that if you go into my computer, there is no new drive (IE l:\ or G:\) there? Or are you getting another error?



    That is what I mean by not recognized.

    I have the same problem. Restarting it does nothing. On the screen of
    the device there is a picture of the device linked to the computer but
    it doesn't have the bubble things going across the connection like it
    does when it's being recognised. Anytime it's not connected it says
    "please connect player to computer" or something. I've tried it on two
    computers and a laptop and none of them are recognising it; I think
    it's a fundamental fault in the product.

First off.. Make sure your software and drivers are up to date...

Second, try re-installing Windows Media Player or if you have WMP 10 installed, try upgrading to WMP 11.

Also, if you plug in something else to your USB port, does the PC recognize it? Or, if you try your GoGear on another computer, does it work ok?

    have you tried another usb device and/or the GoGear on another computer, as I posted in my solution? And making sure you have updated the firmware/software? (this will help eliminate some problems that it may be)

Seems like Polaroid's drivers are having problems with a lot of people. The fixya link below from 2011 recommends just using an audio cable and the Audacity program to transfer the sound from the device.

When I connect my Canon PowerShot A3100 IS camera to either of two laptops via USB cable, I get an error message stating "USB Device Not Recognized - One of the USB devices attached to this computer...


I had this problem today and you might want to check this
from PC's menu = go to my computer right click and select properties
select device manager,
locate "canon camera" which may be under portable devices as mine was
There is either a plus or minus sign next to it. If it is negative as mine, delete this driver. Make sure your camera is off and unplugged before you delete it.
Plug camera in, turn on and the camera should download the driver again.
It worked for me - I'm not technically brilliant but basically, the driver wasn't working correctly.
If you can't find the same settings, call customer service - they were great.

Hook up that external hard drive to another computer that you know for sure the USB ports work properly. If you still get the same error message or the drive is not recognized then that means the hard drive is bad.

If the hard drive is recognized properly and you can access the files then that means its an issue with the operating system.

It can be quite frustrating. I've heard that older computers are more likely to have the USB device not recognized message.

"device is not recognized"


Okay, put your disc in, and when the little box comes up saying that it recognizes new hardware, try to click on that and go from there. If that does not work, let me know and I will find another solution for you.

Can't access my lacie external hard drive


I would first plug it in to a different PC, this will tell you if the problem is the Lacie or Windows Vista.
if it works on a different PC then remove it from Device manager or go to the Lacie website for Vista updates.

If it does not work on a different PC then there are 3 possibilities
1. the drive got cleared data lost
2. the enclosure is bad (I would bet on this)
3. the drive is bad

purchase a USB enclosure, remove the drive and install it in the new enclosure plug in and test.

Hope this helps
thanks for rating
