I don't know what happened. I tried to switch music from one folder on my MP3 to another then something popped up when I tried to open the folder. After I unplugged it from the computer, it wouldn't turn on properly. Normally, when I turn it one, it says "Philips" on the screen then goes to the menu. But now when I turn it on it says "Philips" and freezes there, then I can't turn it off unless I reset it and it turns on the same way!!! Please HELP ME!!!
P.S. I'm not exactly sure what type of Philips GoGear I have but please help anyways! I'll take all the help I can get.

plug in the usb cord to the mp3 player
plug the other end into your computer
wait for windows to recognize the new device
you will see a new folder in my computer (named gogear, or d: or something)
drag and drop music (or copy and paste) mp3's into that folder
Install software like Rhapsody or Songbird and hope they are compatible and will sync. (most mp3 players are compatible)
Reset the player by holding the off-switch and the
volume-+ (plus) switch., and as soon as the player shuts off, press and
hold the volume- - (minus) switch. The computer will see the gogear as a removable hard-drive now, so you can copy/paste music to the music folder. Though the drive might be recognized by Vista, even with the media player running I wasn't able to load music on the player. The files were on the player, as the computer showed, but the player couldn't see them. Only for winXP!
Sounds like a DB corruption. First, back up your songs if you don't already have a back up. You can do this by connecting the Philips to the PC and back up your songs by double-clicking on My Computer, double-clicking on the Philips icon (some computers may not say "Philips" - they will call the mp3 player a "Removable Drive"), and double-clicking the music folder. Create a temporary folder on your desktop, and drag the music files over to the temporary folder. Once all of your songs are backed up, update the firmware for your player by downloading the most recent version of the Philips Device Manager from Philips' website (make sure you get the one for your exact model), and clicking on the Update tab. You should be good to go after that. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
Have you tried to delete them in the philips hard drive. Go my computer - Philpis gogear - music . and i think your songs are there in the folders. just delete them from there. and if you want to delete all of your songs then in the settings should be something like format on erase or something like this. My gogear is bricked so i cant actually look.

did not have one. Click on the "Repair" tab if you are able to load the
