I suggest the same (ripping a CD into mp3 or wma format - wma needs to be unprotected). Plugging the player into your pc shows as storage device (needs to be recent pc running Vista, XP, ME as no drivers available). Open WINDOWS explorer and copy files (wma/mp3) and paste into storage device.

I have one as well, bought yesterday.

You don't need a cd, mines does not have one.

Just plug it into usb port on your pc and it should recognize it as a storage advice, you can then use the file browser (on windows windows explorer) to drag and drop files onto it.

I have a Philips GoGear SA 3020 and it only supports wmv extensions. How do I convert an avi extension to wmv to get it to work? how do i download music onto the philips gogear SA3020?


The videos have to be run through the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter that came with the installation CD - if you have lost it, you can get it from www.usasupport.philips.com

You have to drag and drop music files directly from the folder they are stored in to the music folder of the GoGear - using Windows Explorer is easiest. Be careful which WMA's you transfer - older GoGears (and a few of the newer ones) supported copyright-protected WMA's - the SA3020 does not support them.

I just bought a phillips go gear audio video player and I cannot get Widows Media player to recognize it. Am I missing a driver?


Make sure the installation CD was run. If you lost it, get the software from Philips website.

Check your manual - the newer GoGear's cannot accept a transfer through Windows Media Player - if the manual does not say that you can use Windows Media Player to transfer, then you must drag and drop the files directly using Windows Explorer. The latest GoGear's were a step backwards for Philips, rather than a step forward.
