SOURCE: I own a Philips GoGear

I had the exact same thing happen! It was driving me up a wall trying to figure it out. Finally I decided to go to the START menu and hit RUN. Figured I'd go to the E:/ drive and see if I could do something from there.
A little box popped up, saying that the device was not formatted and asked if I'd like to format it. So I hit yes, read the lil info that popped up on the boxes, and clicked the QUICKFORMAT box. That seemed to do it for me, my device took the music back on it.
Hopefully that works for you. Typically I'm a Zune fan, but mine I had for 6 years and it finally croaked on me. Plus I needed something small to take with me jogging and this seemed to be the perfect solution. If that doesn't take care of it, I say take it back to the store and get it replaced or get it repaired.

How to put videos on gogear vibe 8gb using philips songbird


In songbird bring up your video(s) you want to add. Select then drag and drop to the Vibe list. Songbird will place it in the correct format and place it in the correct spot on your Vibe. do not use suggested programs they are junk windows Media player does not support proper formatting. and soft29.com you will have a bunch of adware and and other bloat ware included. Stay with songbird for proper format and transfer.

I've been adding music to my mp3 and one day I used a different site to add music, so ever since that day I couldn't turn on my mp3 player. It turns on to the "go gear vibe" screen then...


Hi theondraw,
I see that you mp3 will not work now after adding Audio from a different site.
It is possible that the format of your mp3 was compromised or shall I say corrupted, that only way is to format the mp3 again and start a fresh audio list all file on your mp3 could be corrupt now.
Reformat your mp3 and try adding audio using only application or program, mp3 players have specific formatting when adding audio and form other site it may be different and could damage the file system.
Waiting for 4 day will really not work that will just let the unit stay rested and not do any fix, Reformat the Unit add Add Audio an try it again, just an advise use only one program/application when adding audio on your mp3 to prevent file corruption.
Have a nice day.
Thank you for choosing Fixya,

My philips gogear vibe is frozen and wont move from screen its on and wont power down, I have pluged it in to see if that will work and nothing, what do I do?


Try the repair function of the Songbird software and restore VIBE to the factory settings. Before you proceed, bach up your files stored on VIBE if possible because the following procedure erases all files you have on the player:
1: Launch the Philips Songbird on the PC
2: In the Philips Songbird menu bar (at the top), click on the Tools pull-down menu and then select Repair My VIBE.
3: Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the repair procedure.
I hope this will help you.
If you haven't Songbird it can be downloaded from Philips website: www.p4c.philips.com/
Thanks

I can't use my itunes account to add or subtract my music, since adding the gogearVibe. had the same set up approx. 5 months ago with a different unit that worked fine. What happened?


You need to use the Philips songbird software to transfer itunes music into your MP3 player. If your player doesn't use Songbird, you need to first convert it into MP3 format under itunes then transfer using windows media player 11 or higher.

Here is how ot import files from itunes to Songbird:
  1. On the computer, launch the Songbird program. Select Tools > Options
  2. On the Songbird toolbar, select the Media Importer tab, then iTunes Import/Export.
  3. Verify your library location and options. Select Import Library.
  4. The software imports the iTunes library into Songbird.
Once this is done, your itunes music will show in Songbird library. You can now transfer it to your GoGear player. Here is how to transfer files from songbird to your MP3 player:
  1. Click "File" in the toolbar and select "Import Media". Choose the folder that stored your media files.
  2. Select the media files that you want to transfer and then Right Click to display a drop list (You can press and hold the Ctrl button on the keyboard to select more than one file).
  3. Select "Add to Device" and "(Your player model)".
Or you can to go to Songbird library and then drag and drop the files to your MP3 player's icon on the Songbird software.
