Some older Philips models are not compatible with Windows Vista.

Which model do you have?

Does not play well with Windows Media Player 11.

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.

The Phillips Go Gear is not compatible to Windows Vista, and there is nothing one can download to make it compatible. I contacted Phillips, and they said that there are no plans to update the software so that it works on Vista. Pass this to everyone that is having a similar problem. Contact Phillips on their website, and request that the Phillips Go Gear software be updated to include Windows Vista. If more people raise a stink (especially threatening never to buy Phillips products), maybe something will be done.

Software incompatability


Some one else had this problem and i explained i couldn't find any software for that mp3 player that was compatible for Windows Vista so i told him to try and use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to put songs on and he said it worked.

To use Windows Media Player 10 or 11, connect your iPod then go to Windows Media Player at the top click on the link called "Sync" now your on that on the right is a pane drag and drop your music there then click "Start Sync" once sink is complete disconnect and see if that works.

If you do not have a latest version (you should have because your running Windows Vista.) if not for some unknown reason here is the latest Windows Media Player - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way. Further problems just leave a message on this page and i will get back to a.s.a.p.
