Get the version of the jukebox software from www.usasupport.philips.com, and try again. Unfortunately, this player was intimately tied to the MusicMatch svc that was cancelled in October 2007.

Mp3 files do not show up after uploading


Make sure you have the correct version of Musicmatch and that you had installed the provided plugin for the PSS. I personally tried several hours of uninstalling and reinstalling everything until i get it to work.

Try "Pandora's Shoqbox" instead of musicmatch.
If you don't like it or doesn't work you can also try Shoqbox buddy.

Philips ShoqBox PSS120 will not down load music


Try using Windows Explorer instead to transfer files and see if that works:
Plug in the device to the computer making sure it is detected. Right click START button and select Explore. Scroll down the left panel to the device entry. It should be the drive listed after your DVD/CDROM drive. Click the (+) next to the entry to expand the folders. Find the folder where the Mp3's are stored. Now you can simply drag/drop the files from your PC into your player.

Hope that helps!

You have a file error: a system file may be missing or you have a format error on the SHOQBOX. To fix this problem: 1. Connect the SHOQBOX to the computer using the supplied USB cable. 2. Plug your SHOQBOX into a wall outlet with the supplied AC adapter. 3. Launch the Device Manager at Start->Programs->Philips->Philips->PSS110 (or the model number of your SHOQBOX) on your PC. * IMPORTANT: All music & content of your SHOQBOX will be erased once the factory setting is restored. 4. A dialogue box will pop up; click Restore and OK to confirm and start restoring the unit to its factory setting. 5. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the restoration. 6. The Device Manager will close automatically once the success message is displayed. 7. Transfer a couple of songs into your SHOQBOX to confirm if the SHOQBOX has fully recovered all the files. 8. Close all opened applications and safely remove your SHOQBOX by clicking on the icon on your Windows task bar tray. 9. When prompted, ?The USB Mass Storage Device can now be safely removed from the system?, click OK and unplug your SHOQBOX. 10. Your player will display ?UPGRADING FIRMWARE?? once disconnected from the computer. 11. After firmware upgrade is complete, it will reset itself, showing the PHILIPS splash screen. 12. Press to switch on the player again.

Can't Seem To Find The Music On My Shoqbox


Search for a program called 'Shoqbox buddy' which will rebuild the database on your player. Operation is fairly self-explanatory.

Once you run the program and navigate to the right location on the player it takes seconds.

Shoqbox not playing or showing song loaded


Make sure you have the version of the Musicmatch from the Philips website first, and try again - Musicmatch discontinued their service in Oct 2007, making this particular Philips mp3 player obsolete.

Also, make sure the files you are trying to load are in Mp3 format specifically - this player cannot take DRM-encrypted WMA files.

Mp3 files missing


Make sure the music files are in the correct format specified on the product spec sheet; drm-protected files will not work, and most music services use them now

Hi, you might want to consider using the freeware Shoqbox Buddy (http://www.apocgraphy.com/ShoqBoxBuddy/Help.htm). I completely stopped using the proprietary software shipped with the shoqbox in favor of the Shoqbox Buddy!
