Back up your player before you format it. Formatting erases all the data inside your player.

  1. Connect your player to your PC.
  2. On your PC desktop, double-click My computer.
  3. Highlight your player in the popup window, right-click, and then select Format.
    If you don't see the Format option:
    • Double-click on your player in the popup window.
    • Highlight the Internal Storage icon, right-click, and then select Format.
    • Click Yes when you see the warning message.
  4. Click Start to format your player.
  5. When the formatting is finished, copy your music, pictures and video onto your player.

How do I download songs onto my phillips gogear cam


  • Charge your Philips GoGear ViBE for at least three hours before turning it on.
  • 2 Insert the small end of your mini USB cable into your GoGear ViBE. Insert the other end of this cable into one of your computer's USB ports. Turn your GoGear ViBE on by pressing and holding the "Power" button for two seconds.
  • 3 Insert the Philips GoGear ViBE software disc into your computer's CD-ROM drive. Follow the onscreen prompts to install it.
  • 4 Open "Computer" from the "Start" menu and locate the GoViBE icon to make sure it has been successfully connected to your computer.
  • 5 Navigate to your music files. If you're unsure about their location, start by looking in the "Music" folder under the "Start" menu.
  • 6 Drag and drop your music files from their folder onto the GoViBE icon in your "Computer" window.
  • 7 Right-click the USB icon with the green arrow, located in your taskbar, to disconnect your device. Click "Safely Remove hardware," then wait until your computer confirms that it's safe to remove the device. Disconnect the USB cable from both your computer and your GoGear ViBE.
  • 8 Select the musical note icon from the main menu of your GoGear ViBE to open your music files. Navigate to the sub-folders section, and select a song from either the artist, album, track list or genre. Press the "Play/Pause" button to begin playing a song

I bought songs online. mp3 player plugged into the computer. how do i get downloaded songs onto the mp3?


When you connect the MP3 player with the supplied USB cable to your computerand the computer detect the player as an external storage device or a Removabledisk, you can then view the folder on your MP3 player. Open the music folderand create a new folder on the player exactly the same way you create a folderon your computer's hard drive. To organise your music, make a folder name withthe name of the music album and place the album's MP3 files in this folder from your computer.
You will then be able to select the music you want to play by the music albumfolder.

Having problem syncrinizing music to mp3 player


if u used window media player its will mess up your mp3 by duplicating songs and not leting u play songs. What i do is connect it to the computer and it should pop up. DONT open window media player. Open the files and add your music by dragging them into your mp3 from another folder. This only works if you have a different folder of music. It should work. If all your music is in Widows media player it wont work. Also try deleting all your music from ur mp3 but copy your musice onto your computer first. Good luck i hope i helped.

Philips GoGear


The songs that you are trying to load have a license type that the GoGear does not support, or the license does not allow playback on mp3 players. The solution would depend on the music service that you are using, and the type of GoGear that you have - on some music services, you can pay extra money to get a song that has a license that allows transfer and playback on mp3 players.

If, instead of an SA6045, you have a newer model Go Gear, you may not be able to play DRM-encrypted songs at all. In which case, the solution would be to sign up for a music service that only gives you songs in mp3 format.

None of the GoGears - ever- were ever compatible with iTunes.

My phillips gogear 4 gb is frozen


Sounds like a DB corruption. First, back up your songs if you don't already have a back up. You can do this by connecting the Philips to the PC and back up your songs by double-clicking on My Computer, double-clicking on the Philips icon (some computers may not say "Philips" - they will call the mp3 player a "Removable Drive"), and double-clicking the music folder. Create a temporary folder on your desktop, and drag the music files over to the temporary folder.

Once all of your songs are backed up, update the firmware for your player by downloading the most recent version of the Philips Device Manager from Philips' website (make sure you get the one for your exact model), and clicking on the Update tab.

You should be good to go after that.

I just go my mp3 and im trynna figure how to download music to it wen my cd that came whit it want run


The latest GoGear's are a step backward rather than a step forward. You must use Windows Explorer to transfer the songs. Double-click My Computer while the GoGear is connected to the computer, double-click the GoGear icon or disk drive corresponding to it, and then find the Music folder. Now, find the location of the stored songs on your computer, and drag them to the Music folder of the GoGear.
