Go to: (Va a:)
www.usasupport.philips.com - click on Espanol
Enter your model number (Entra su numero de modelo)
On the next page, click on your exact model number without the "B" on the end
On the next page, click on "User's Manuals" - look for "Repair"
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).

I just had the same problem. Here's what I did. Un-install the Device manger and then go to this websight:
Now download Device/Firmware Manager, Version: 0101001006 English (US) and instill it. Then download Firmware Upgrade - Software, Version: 002.022.005 English (US) and run it. Now open the Device manger and click the repair tab. Now hold the back button on the mp3 player and plug it in to the computer until the computer screen says that it has reported an error. Now click repare. This worked for mine I hope it works for yours.
