The newest line of GoGear's is almost a step backwards for Philips - many of them do not recognize DRM-encryption. The only solution is to get a WMA to Mp3 Converter, or to redownload the songs in Mp3 format. Yahoo Music uses DRM-encrypted WMA files on their service - this player cannot read them.

I dont no how to get itunes moviesand songs onto my player


Hi, How to Download Music to the Philips GoGear

The Philips GoGear Micro Jukebox is a portable MP3 player that plays MP3 files and WMA files and also displays photos. Download music, copy it to the GoGear player and enjoy your tunes everywhere you go.

Things You'll Need:

* Philips GoGear and USB cable
* Internet connection
* Online music download service
* Secure method of making online payments
* Windows Media Player software


Download music in MP3 or WMA formats. You can buy songs from many online sources. If you choose to buy from iTunes, be aware that you will need to convert them from the native iTunes format to MP3 files. The iTunes software will do this for you.

Import the songs to your Windows Media Player Library if they are not already there. Windows Media Player can be set to check for new files in certain folders each time it launches, so this might happen automatically.
.
Connect the Philips GoGear device to your computer with the USB cable and click on the "Sync" tab in Windows Media Player. Drag songs you want to copy to the "Sync list" on the right-hand side of the Windows Media Player window.

Click on the "Start Sync" button at the bottom of the list pane when you have all of the songs on the list. You should be able to check at the top of the list pane to see how much space is available on your MP3 player in order to make sure you have enough room.

Wait while the files transfer and then disconnect the player from your computer. You may have to click on "Safely Remove Hardware" in your system tray (usually on the bottom right corner of the screen) depending on your computer.

Have a nice day..

Philips GoGear SA3245 - Playlists Not Showing Up on Player


Have solved this problem on GoGear syncing with WMP 11 by going to options on the device itself, then go to the "settings" option, scroll down to "PC Connection Preferences", from here you will select the check box saying "MTP" then back out of options and connect your device and go back to your WMP 11 and drag your playlists to the syncing area and resync your device. You should then be able to see your playlists under the playlist option in music along with the "playlist on the go" playlist.

Hope this will help!

Save music


All Philips Go Gear prefer specific music players, Like yahoo Jukebox. If your player did not come with a disk, I would suggest downloading the Jukebox player and then pluging in our player.

Yahoo will find your player and sync all your music..

Connection


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.

Yahoo Unlimited does not download the songs directly to the Mp3 player - you must download the songs to the computer first, and then use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs from the computer to the player. Check your subscription for Yahoo Music - the lower level subscription does not allow you to transfer songs to an Mp3 player - you will have to upgrade the subscription. also, check the individual tracks - I cancelled Yahoo Unlimited because on many songs, you have to pay extra for the song even if you have purchased a subscription.
