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.

Songs not transferred


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

I cannot download pictures from my LG Neon gt365 to my computer. What do I need to do? Do I need a USB? Do I need a micro SD? If so, what kind do I need? any help would be great!


You should be able to connect it using a usb cable that will need to be bought separately and a micro SD card installed in the phone. You should be able to buy any micro SD card up to 4GB. Also, if you buy a card with an SD adapter that will allow you to connect the SD card (with a memory card reader) to your computer without the additional usb cable. The manual link is attached: http://www.tmoatt.com/uploads/53/LG_Neon_GT365_UG_English.pdf
Per the manual:
Transferring Music from the Digital Music Service 1. Using your computer, open your preferred PC music management client. 2. Download the selected song to your library. 3. Make sure the microSD™ card is inserted properly into the handset. 4. Use the USB adapter cable to connect the handset to the PC. When you try to connect handset on your PC, the handset displays "Call and Message functions will not be available while connected to USB". 5. Once the USB connection has been established, the handset displays "To avoid data corruption always carry out safe removal hardware on PC after use." and the computer screen then shows the LG NEON device. If the detection does not occur, skip to Changing USB Connection Settings section on page 63. 6. Follow the instruction in the program to transfer music to your handset. n Note If you have a USB hub, connect the handset directly to your computer rather than through the hub. Transferring Music using Windows Media Player 1. Open Windows Media® Player on your computer (version 10.0 or higher). 2. Use the USB adapter cable to connect the handset to the PC. When you try to connect handset on your PC, the handset displays "Call and Message functions will not be available while connected to USB". 3. Once the USB connection has been established, the handset displays "To avoid data corruption always carry out safe removal hardware on PC after use." and the computer screen then shows the LG NEON device.

First, syncing is the transfer of data between computer software's that are designed to acquire and share with another entity. The sync function usually is embedded in the computer program. Once the computer recognizes compatible software that has several capabilities including transferring data, a USB connection capacity should be achievable. Usually devices that are designed for data transferability should be capable of acquiring a USB connection either as physical cables or wireless Bluetooth technology. The power to sync is contained in the software program. Once software that has sync capabilities is installed on the computer, any USB cable that is attached to an empty port would display a user message asking for further procedures. For example, USB connections on the computer that has media software's would display device recognizes link requiring data transfer. The solution lies in the software that is relied on for sync capabilities. Acquire Windows Media player, Real One player, or ITunes player as downloadable onto the computer to achieve compatibility.


Important Notes

USB ports are available on all computers as versatile connection links to devices that would require communications. The computers original systems are expected to recognize USB cable connection as manufacturers default. Usually, the computer is likely capable of upgrading several software programs that would least communicate with the USB. For example, the program suit installed has compatibility requirements to perform on the computer as an entity. Also, the program suit requires compatibility with USB connection for another device that would be connected to the computer. Attempt to install media transfer programs that are designed with sync features.

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..

Download onto mp3 player


You may first want to check to see if your player came with software that can aid in this process. You'll also need to know what formats of media your player accepts. For these purposes, we'll assume your player accepts mp3 format media and connects to your PC via USB.

1. Connect the device to a USB connection on your computer.
2. If you're using Windows, your computer should automatically detect the device, probably showing it as a removable hard disk.
3. Double-click the removable USB device that your computer now sees and here you will have to browse to see where your player will accept the media; likely, right here will work.
4. Now, just copy & paste mp3 files from your pc to your media player/removable USB device.
5. When done, safely remove the player from the computer.

4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.
