Question about Philips GoGear HDD1830 MP3 Player
Hardware issue - may even be caused by plugging this player into a computer running either Vista, or Windows Media Player 11 (or it could be a good old manufacturer's defect).
If you go into the Philips Device Manager and try "Repair," and it still doesn't fix the player, 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.
If it still doesn't work, then this player is history. But, all is not lost - the charger for that HDD1830 is no longer available from Philips - people would pay $40 to get their hands on that charger alone - post it on eBay, and I guarantee that you will have bidders.
This particular Mp3 player wasn't future-proof - it just can't handle the latest Windows software/OS.
Good luck - hopefully my methods will fix it. Otherwise, you can recover at least $40 bucks by selling that charger on eBay.
