I have recently bought a Phillips gogear 8g mp3 player and I just want to ask (since I don't have a cd software or a manual that came with the product) how do I add songs into my mp3?


you can simply use drag and drop method to transfer music from your computer to your MP3 player. You can also use Windows media player 10 to transfer music. Make sure to use version 10,. Version 11 doesn't work.

Transfer music via Windows Media Player 10:

1.Hook up your GoGear to the PC via the supplied USB cable.
2.Plug your GoGear into a power outlet with the supplied AC adapter/charger.
3.Launch Windows Media Player 10.
Note: Once the device is connected to the computer, all audio or radio playback will stop.
4.Check and make sure that the Create folder hierachy on device option is enabled in Windows Media Player. Go to Tools>Options. Select the Devices tab and then highlight GoGear Audio and click Properties
5.Click "OK" to close the windows.
6.Click the "Sync" tab.
7.In the "Items to Copy" pane, from the drop-down list, click the playlist, category, or other item that you want to copy.
8.Click the check boxes next to any files you want to copy.

9.In the "Items on Device" pane, from the drop-down list, click on PhilipsGoGear for where to copy files to.
10.Click the "Start Sync" button.
11.The Player verifies that there is sufficient storage space on the device to copy the selected files. If there is sufficient space, the files are converted (if necessary) and copied to the portable device.
12.Repeat steps 2-5 for any other items that you want to copy to your portable device.
13.Once the transfer is completed, close Windows Media Player.

14.Unplug the GoGear from the PC and enjoy the music on your GoGear.


Ok, you can download all the software and drivers from this link:

Use a pen tip or other sharp object to insert the RESET hole on the side of the player.

Here is a page which shows you how to transfer music over to your new Phillips Media Player. Windows Media Player sync is specific to Windows products. Do NOT use this to transfer music to your Phillips media player. Use the software supplied by the manufacturer.

Doesn't show up when i plug it in to my laptop


To download music or photos on to your Philips GoGear, you need to use a computer that has Windows Media Player and Device Manager already installed. Once these are installed, the steps to sync your Philips GoGear Jukebox using Windows Media Player are fairly easy to follow. Follow these steps to sync your Philips GoGear.

Connect your Philips GoGear to the computer with the USB cable. The USB connector on the GoGear is on the top, and will be on the front or back of your computer. You will see a USB connection icon as soon as the GoGear is connected to the computer.
1.Start Windows Media Player from the Start Menu or from the desktop. To transfer files to your GoGear from your computer, click Copy to CD or Device (with WMP 9) or the Sync tab (with WMP 10). 2.Find the Items to Copy pane. In the drop-down list, click the category or playlist that you want to copy to your GoGear. Make sure that items that you do not want to copy are unchecked. 3.Locate the Items on Device pane. In the drop-down list, click GoGear. When you have selected the items that you want to sync, click the Copy (with WMP 9) or Start Sync (with WMP 10) button.

Phillips GoGear 4Gb - Can't sync songs onto player...


This is only a makeshift solution.
I use a philips gogear sa52xx and found out, that deleting the drivers, then reconnecting the Player and pressing F5 in the explorer allows me to normally access the philips gogear sa52xx for about 30 seconds. After that, out of nowhere the drivers will sever and the Code 10 error appears. So, another disconnect - deinstall of the driver - reconnect - F5 in the explorer until the Player appears and then sync. The proplem is, that this works best (maybe only) with mp3 files...
So convert your music files into mp3 first, than do above steps for drag 'n' drop.
Usually, you need to do the whole procedure 2 times for a CD, sometimes 3.
