Philips GOGEAR 4 GB mp3, unable to download videos to it

Merry Christmas Leo! Just got a GoGear for my son and my daughter. I used the bundled application to convert a DIVX AVI file to the Philips GoGear format. Then just open the Windows Explorer, locate the Video folder on the Philips (which should show up as removable drive). Then copy the file over as you would any other data file.

Player has Frozen

reset one more time to shut off
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Then download the latest firmware upgrade for the player by going to the Philips Device Manager and clicking on Update button
You may need to restart your computer once between the volume + method and the firmware method

Frozen screen

Sounds like the database has become corrupt. The only cure for this is to restore the player.
This can be caused by shock to the player, not "safely disconnecting" from the PC, or incompatible Windows or Media Player version.

Assuming you player is a Philips HDD1830, install and run the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Select the repair/restore option.

Connect the player to the power supply and PC, then follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player, and restore the system files.


If you player is an SA6085 or SA6185, then the same method applies, but you will need to press and hold [VOL+] on the player whilst connecting to the PC, until told to let go.

If this doesn't help,, post your model number for more specific help.

Philips gogear

Windows XP has a native driver that will work - if your computer is not recognizing the device, then unplug the GoGear from computer, turn your GoGear off, and hold in the volume+ button. Reconnect the GoGear to your computer while still holding the volume+ button. After 5-50 seconds, Windows should say Found Hardware Wizard and will load/reload the needed drivers.

Otherwise, you may have to reinstall the installation CD (does not work with Vista) - it has a key component called Philips Device Plug-In which needs to be reloaded.

Mp3 512mb go gear

Go to:
Enter your model number
On the next page, click on your exact model number without the "B" on the end
On the next page, click on "software and drivers"

If the software and drivers section doesn't help, then go to the FAQ for model SA6087 - there is a patch you can download under the section My GoGear is not recognized by PC - it works for most models of GoGear.
