I want to download philips gogear software for pc


Hello.
Welcome To Fixya DIY Community^^
Its my pleasure to help You solving this Problem.

Its obvious that after the installation of a new Windows XP version in your computer, The GoGear Won't operate as usual Because it's missing drivers and the Music downloading utility in the computer Interface.
  • Now you should install the Drivers To Solve this Problem.
You can Download Drivers and utilities from the link below:
Aditional Support:

--ask me if you need any further info. i am always available.^^


*do not use te software upgrade utility, install only the necessary drivers for your MP3 Player.
the upgrade utility is useful when the firmware of Your MP3 player is corrupted or defective.

Tired downloading


Just a suggestion, but you obviously posted this problem in the wrong section, because the SA178 does not support video. For other SA models, however:
First, The Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter that came with the installation CD is used for converting and transferring video files specifically to your device. If you have lost the CD, grab the updated Media Converter from www.usasupport.philips.com.

Second, even that Media Converter cannot handle a full-length DVD. You will have to acquire a video editing software that will allow you to break the video into 15-minute chunks. Run each chunk through the Media Converter and you will have to watch the video in 15-minute pieces.

Good luck!

Help me please


If your mp3 player is an SA178, then you can't. If it is a Philips Go Gear that does support video, then you have to run the video through the Philips Media Converter that came with the installation CD first, which is also available from Philips website. Start --> All Programs --> Philips Media Converter inside the Media Converter --> Add Files - find file (if the file does not appaear, run the video file through the Rive Flv Encoder, changing the "Output" extension to .avi) --> Convert to Device (with the Go Gear plugged in)
Good luck.

Lost software disk for Phillips Go gear


www.usasupport.philips.com for missing software - just enter model #

Use Windows Media Player to transfer songs - the programs on the installation CD are not used for transferring - they are only used for repairing the occasional malfucntion

Go to www.usasupport.philips.com , enter in your GoGear model number, click on the exact model number, and then click on the software and drivers tab; there will be the latest version of the "Device/Firmware Manager" on the website.
