Just purchased Philips GoGear Vibe mp3 video player 8 computer does not reconize it is connected


Your GoGear is likely in MTP connection mode, which requires proprietary drivers to connect. If you are trying to connect it as a standard mass storage device, switch the player to MSC connection mode. To do this, select "PC connection preference" in the Settings menu.

As an alternative, I recommend using the the Philips Songbird software that came with the device. This software is useful for automatically converting most media files to GoGear friendly format during synchronization. And, installing this software will also install drivers necessary for connecting the device in MTP connection mode. More importantly, when your corruption prone GoGear gets the familiar "file system error" screen, the software can be used to repair it.




If you do not have Songbird, download it for Windows or Mac here:http://www.usa.philips.com/c/mp3-media-player/22126/cat/en/#/difference/philipssongbird.

Gogear vibe will not connect to either of my computers?


Uninstall the gogear driver- the media convertor- from the PC, then install once again the driver into the PC and then convert the media to be converted and copied into the player.If the driver is not installing then you will need to download the driver;

Philips GoGear HDD6330 MP3 Player will not sync music files onto it? How do I fix that and has deleted all previous ones! Please help>


This could be the player's connection mode in combination with your synchronization software. If you are using Windows Media Player or Philips Songbird to sync, the player will need to be set for MTP connection mode. Most other software that works with regular flash drives will need the player set for MSC connection mode. Whatever you are using, simply try the other mode.

To change the connection mode, select "PC connection preference" in the Settings menu of the player.

How do i connect to computor to download music?


You will need the Philips power supply unit, attatched is the cable which plugs into the base of the gogear also on this cable is a USB plug, this then goes into your PC. You will need Windows media player version 10, for the gogear to be recognized and transfer your music/photos/etc.
You should also have the Philips software installed on your PC.

A problem with my philips gogear...


The Device Manager came with the installation CD. If you lost the installation CD, you can get the Device Manager by going to www.usasupport.philips.com and entering in your model #, and going to "software & drivers"

If Device Manager is already installed, you can find it by going to Start --> All programs --> Philips Digital Audio Player --> Philips Device Manager
