Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
I have titled paylists showing below my playlist on the go display,I have no idea how they got there but cannot get rid of them, also some songs are duplicated and will not show on my list to remove via windows media player, basically I just need help on removing unwanted items and how to display the contents
i would like to start my player content to zero.to empty it like when i bought it.nothing on it.i have a brand new laptop and i don't want to carry all the junk that is on there...help!
For those who wish to remove all of the music on your Philips MP3 player.. You should have a ICON on your desktop titled Philips Device Manager. Double click on the icon to open it and connect your mp3 player to the computer. You may first want to click on Update just to make sure you have the latest updates, if there are new updates and you choose to download the updates this will erase all of your music, pictures, etc. from your mp3 player. If you get a message that you mp3 player is the latest updates then go to the repair tab and click on repair. This will also erase all of your music and data from your mp3 player and leave it completely blank just like it was brand new. Finally, after so many hours of trying to figure out why I had 5 duplicates of just about every song.

You probably have your Windows Media Player set up for AUTOMATIC instead of MANUAL synchronization.
When this option is selected,Windows Media Player will add EVERY song, picture, etc from your Library on your computer to the GoGear. Now, every time you sync you device, it adds every new file from your computer into the GoGear automatically.
Here's what you want to do (this process assumes you have Windows Media Player 11 and windows XP - if you have another version, just let me know and I will give you modified instructions - reply to the FixYa website, not to my personal e-mail address):
1) Backup all files stored on your GoGear, as this process will delete all files from your GoGear
2) Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your GoGear connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portable media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding songs/files you don't want into your player.
As for some files not being viewable, try simply disconnecting the GoGear from the computer and resyncing with Windows Media Player. sometimes files will be displayed multiple times, and a simple resyncing will cure the problem. Otherwise:
You must use Windows Media Player to delete songs from the GoGear. With your GoGear connected to the PC, you want to highlight (single left click) the icon of the GoGear (or line that says Philips GoGear blah blah blah) on the left hand side of Windows Media Player 11 - this will ensure that you are deleting files from the GoGear itself, and not the computer. Once the GoGear line is highlighted, click on the "Songs" or "Album" folder underneath the GoGear line (NOT the "Songs" or "Album" folder underneath the "Library"). This will bring up a list of songs stored on the GoGear into the middle pane of Windows Media Player 11. Highlight (single left click) a song you want to delete and press the delete button on your computer's keyboard. windows USUALLY gives you a prompt asking if you really want to delete the files/they will be permanently removed from your (GoGear) device. Congratulations, you have just deleted songs from your GoGear! :-)
