Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Properties show that the device has 0% free space

I have the Philips GoGear SA23xx, and have been using for 3 months. I cannot download MP3 files to it, because it is showing that the device is full. However, when I go into My Computer to delete files on the device, there are no files to delete.

Deleting tracks off 4gb sa2640 gogear


The files are not deleted from the device but moved to the recycle bin. To completely remove the files from the MP3 player, use the following procedure:
1. Open Windows Explorer by double clicking the My Computer icon on your desktop.
2. Click on the Tools menu and select Folder Options.
3. Select the Tab View and check to select the Show hidden Files and Folders option.
4. Navigate to the device. A folder called recycle bin is available. Completely remove this folder from the device.Once the recycle bin folder is removed, the files are completely removed from the device and the free space is available.

No space to build database,please connect to pc and create 100mb of space


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. From the description you have given above, you have no space to build a database of media player files and you want to know how to free up space by connecting to a PC? I think I can provide assistance to you for that. Your device is telling you what you need to do, which is free up space on your MP3 player by removing media files on your 8GB hard drive. 100 megabytes of files need to be removed in order to do this. By going into songbird and removing the files, the computer will remove the file from the MP3 player, but by default, will not delete the file itself; as the file will be on Philips Songbird on your PC's hard drive. To remove media files on your GoGear Ariza:

1. Use the USB cable that was supplied with your MP3 player to connect your device to your PC.

2. Open Philips Songbird on your PC.

3. Select a media file from your music, video or downloads library that you want to remove and right click it.

4. Click 'Remove' and confirm the command.

Repeat steps 3 & 4 as many times as you need to until you have deleted 100MB of media files. If songbird displays the file size, use that to help you decide which ones are taking up the most space, or as you are getting ready to remove a file, use the file sizes and add them together (mathematically). If you don't know, mb stands for megabyte, and a megabyte is 1,000,000 bytes. Once the total is 100,000,000 or more, you can stop removing files if you want. I hope this helps!

I have recently bought a Phillips gogear 8g mp3 player and I just want to ask (since I don't have a cd software or a manual that came with the product) how do I add songs into my mp3?


you can simply use drag and drop method to transfer music from your computer to your MP3 player. You can also use Windows media player 10 to transfer music. Make sure to use version 10,. Version 11 doesn't work.

Transfer music via Windows Media Player 10:

1.Hook up your GoGear to the PC via the supplied USB cable.
2.Plug your GoGear into a power outlet with the supplied AC adapter/charger.
3.Launch Windows Media Player 10.
Note: Once the device is connected to the computer, all audio or radio playback will stop.
4.Check and make sure that the Create folder hierachy on device option is enabled in Windows Media Player. Go to Tools>Options. Select the Devices tab and then highlight GoGear Audio and click Properties
5.Click "OK" to close the windows.
6.Click the "Sync" tab.
7.In the "Items to Copy" pane, from the drop-down list, click the playlist, category, or other item that you want to copy.
8.Click the check boxes next to any files you want to copy.

9.In the "Items on Device" pane, from the drop-down list, click on PhilipsGoGear for where to copy files to.
10.Click the "Start Sync" button.
11.The Player verifies that there is sufficient storage space on the device to copy the selected files. If there is sufficient space, the files are converted (if necessary) and copied to the portable device.
12.Repeat steps 2-5 for any other items that you want to copy to your portable device.
13.Once the transfer is completed, close Windows Media Player.

14.Unplug the GoGear from the PC and enjoy the music on your GoGear.


Ok, you can download all the software and drivers from this link:

Hi, I am using Philips Go Gear 4 GB MP3 palyer. It has 3 GB free space but when I start the player,below message comes . Please tell me how to solve the issue "Memory Full Connect to PC &...


Possible that some of the files in the GoGear are not to the requriement of the player. So download the media converter and download the files to be transferred to the player. In the first place connect the player to the PC and move OFF all the files , delete the memory to be free and then reload using the converter .
Use the link below:

When i connect my player to pc it is showing donot disconnect. and when i open the folder in my pc nothing is seen. and when i click on properties, it is showing like this: used space 0 bytes free space...


When connecting the player to your PC via the USb cable the screen will light up and say "OK to disconnect".
This is normal.

Go to My Computer and you will see the Philips Removable Drive icon. Double-click on that and you should see various folders. Click on Music and add your MP3 files in tere.

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.

Lost all memory on hard drive


Once it's gone, it's gone.
You can try loading the firmware update from Philips website, but this is unlikely to resolve.

Philips HDD – Reloading the Firmware Hack

1. Plug your GoGear HDD into the computer
2. From ‘My Computer’ right click the GoGear drive and format it. Be SURE you format it as FAT32 and quick compression is not on
3. Create 3 folders on the newly formatted disk called: ‘_System’ , ‘Data’ , ‘Media’
3. Download fom Philips the latest Device Manager for your kind of player
4. Install the Device Manager
5. On the Desktop, right click the Philips Device Manager shortcut, then Properties, then open file location.
6. Copy the folders you see there into the ‘Data’ folder
7. Copy the Firmware.ebn file into the ‘_System’ folder
8. Unplug the device and now it should run fine

Mp3 Files Show as Unknow under artist and title


Get the latest version of the software from the Philips website - it is more recent than the installation CD.
Go to:
www.usasupport.philips.com
Enter your model number
On the next page, click on your exact model number without the "B" on the end
On the next page, click on "software and drivers"


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).

This player will not store much more. Even if you change the song properties, you will not squeeze much more out of this one.
