Question about Philips GoGear Flash MP3 Player

1 Answer

No longer able to download media onto player

When I connect the player to the USB cable ( which is connected to my PC) the player displays do not disconnect but no data transfer takes place. The PC software doesn't recognise that the player is connected and after disconnecting I have to reset the player so that it can be used. It hasn't always done this only recently.

Get the firmware upgrade by downloading the clean version of the Device Manager from www.usasupport.philips.com - open Device Manager and go to Update

If it won't recognze, then force recognition:
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.

    Music won't download it shows up on the computer but once it's unplugged from the computer it's no longer there...


    Hello,

    Media players have certain folders for holding the data in the player.
    Most players (not all) will accept 2 ways of files transfers and depends on the USB connection mode.
    Some players switch automatically into the operating connection mode when connecting the USB cable.
    Other players can be switched through specific key operation on the player or using the menu in the player.
    Consult your manual or use internet support for information about your player's functions. See if you have to install software and maybe updates as well.

    1. USB cable connect mode MSC = Mass Storage Class.
    Using the explorer in "My Computer", seeing the player as an external flash drive:
    When the files are not put into the correct destination folder, the content will not be kept in the memory of the player.
    Before disconnecting in MSC mode always go through "safely remove hardware", the icon in the right corner of the computer screen: disconnect the player's flash drive in the icon "safely remove hardware", before pulling out the USB cable.

    2. USB cable connect mode MTP = Media Transfer Protocol.
    Using a software program like Windows Media Player 10 or 11, the player should be recognized as a media device:
    Files must be put in a playlist on the computer first: create a playlist.
    After that, synchronizing of the playlist onto the player has to be done.

    When needing more help, just add a comment in this thread.

    Downloading issues


    Before you start downloading to your Mp3 media player, you will need a software installation CD..

    First install the Cd on a PC, and connect a USB cable from your mp3 to your PC..

    Your PC will display information in your mp3 device.

    To make it easy first create a folder in your mp3 device when it displays and just copy from your PC to the device ...i think that will work..

    If you don't have an installation CD you can download on the net.. thank you..

    I don't know how to load music from the internet to my new mp3


    the best way for that is to read your manual.

    MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
    Windows XP SP1
    Windows Media Player 10
    Intel1.gif Pentium class PC or higher
    CD-ROM drive
    USB 2.0 port required for hi-speed transfer
    CONNECTING AND TRANSFERRING
    Connect to your Computer
    1. Connect the small USB Cable Connector to the USB port on your computer, and then plug the larger
    Cable Dock Connector in to your Sansa c200 port.
    2. Once connected to computer, it should be detected by the operating system automatically and is
    shown as an additional drive called “Sansa c200”.
    SANSA MEDIA CONVERTER
    You will need to use Sansa Media Converter to transfer photos to your Sansa c200. Insert your SanDisk
    CD and select Sansa Media Converter to install it to your PC. Then you can load your personal photos
    onto your Sansa c200 by using Sansa Media Converter.

    TRANSFER MUSIC
    To transfer music to your Sansa c200:
    1. Connect Sansa c200 to the computer.
    2. Drag and drop files from your computer to Sansa c200 by using a variety of music software
    programs to transfer/synchronize your files.
    3. In MTP mode as long as the files are WMA or MP3, they can be dragged into the Media folder.
    Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data1.gif folder (these files will not appear on the player).
    4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.
