I was getting a problem that when copying discs to the gogear, the same on was going on 2 or 3 times instead of saying "Already on device". I deleted all track through WMP11, uninstalled then reinstalled the software. I then recooected the GoGear but my laptop doesn't recognise it anymore.
I just bought my wife a Creative Zen at the weekend and it connects with no problems atall.

Try doing a soft reset.
1. Press and hold the Power on/off key and the volume + key for a couple of seconds.
2. Then switch on the GoGear using the Power on/off key.
Note: Your songs and data will not be lost or corrupted by a soft reset.
Update your players firmware to the latest version to reduce the chance of future hang-ups.
This used to happen to me all the time i have found out that everytime i actually sync music into my mp3 instead of copying it in or dragging it the updating takes longer. Try copying or dragging ur music.I hope I helped.
mdcope2 - delete the msuic files that you already ripped from CD off the GoGear. If you Rip a song in WMA, and then re-rip it in Mp3 format, when you go to sync the mp3 file, the GoGear will basically ignore the new file, because it thinks that the file is already on the GoGear since it has almost the same name. Once you have deleted the affected songs, re-Rip the songs in Mp3 format using Windows Media Player. This time, when you go to sync the songs, it will work.
Guest - to load video files onto the GoGear, you have to convert and sync them through the Philips Media Converter - no other method will work.
With the SA4010, it is sensitive to downloading large amounts of information all at once. As painful as this might be, try downloading one song at a time.
If this is a problem that didn't exist before, try resetting the player once by re-inserting the battery. If single song downloads fail, and this is a new problem Repair the device (WARNING: this will delete all songs off your player): 1) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website 2) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button (on this model, you will actually use the play/pause button instead of the volume + button) 3) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off (if you haven't done so already) - hold in the play/pausebutton and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the play/pause 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 play/pause button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new.
Try to convert them to you local disc first and then move them to the gogear. This is what I do with media converter for philips. Instead of choosing current device choose folder. When converted try to view the movie first with your media player. The gogear apears as a dics when you browse my computer and you can then copy/move the files to the appropriate folder on it. Make sure that movies, pictures and mp3 files are in the right folder on the gogear.
Bailman, Try running the installation CD or grabbing the software for the GoGear from the Philips website. If you have already done that, then follow the FAQ instructions for Player is not recognized by PC on FAQ of Philips website. Otherwise, perform Repair (warning - this will delete all songs from your computer): 1) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website 2) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button 3) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off (if you haven't done so already) - 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
