Philips ShoqBox PSS120 will not down load music

I have followed the idiots guide to the letter, the player just refuses to accept my playlists, on the surface everything it states it should be doing it does, its only when you unplug the USB and go into the music menu of the shoqbox you find nothing at all. Its killing me !!!!!

Forget about making the playlists any other way than by making playlists in WM10; and transporting these from there to the shoqbox.
better still just synchronize a just ripped cd to build your music library and do nothing else; managing files in Explorer will always result in loss of files and usability;
The shoqbox is a wonderful device that is ruined by crappy software. Don' t experiment if you want enjoy the music!!!

Try to format the memory to fat partition and copy paste the songs you want ,because sometimes it may happen that the file system through which you have formatted is not accepted by the device ,if you find an option in your device to format its memory its too good ,becaue you will come to know that which file system it supports .Now it may also be possible that you have to create a folder inside the memory and paste the song inside the folder you wants or just paste the songs in the root drive..So try to format the memory using the device if possibl,because it may create some default folders which will show you in which folder you have to paste your songs.........

Good Luck ..

Hi,

If all else fails, perhaps you may need to restore or upgrade the firmware. Of course doing so would erase all user settings/configuration/files but would revert the unit back to factory default + all other enhancements of the new firmware. Additionally, this page list all other support for this device.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

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 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!
