Wanting to organize the files already on my GoGear 6GB...
I've downloaded all my songs, and there were a few that I wanted to put into other folders, but I can't seem to find a way, either in Windows Media player, or on the player itself. I thought i'd be able to "drag and drop" into a new folder, but I don't seem to have that option either. Is there any way to do this with the music already on my player?
Re: Wanting to organize the files already on my GoGear...
Yes u can by holding the center button till it asks u if u want to put a song in favorites, but u have to be playing the song.and u can only put 30 songs in favorites and u can also delete them out of favorites the way u added it.
Re: Wanting to organize the files already on my GoGear...
You can only add 30 songs in your favorites by pressing the center button (shape: circle) for few second till it asks u if u want to put the song u r playing in favorites. click on the x mark for no or a check mark for yes that u want to put the song in favorites.
you have to beplaying the song to put it in favorites and DO NOTpress the option reset all in settings or u will loose the favorites folder like i did.

Try reinstalling the drivers off the disc that came with the unit.
If this fails you could try
Plugging in you GoGear to the pc then go to My Computer and double click the removable drive and you should see a list of folders one should say Music, click on this file now just drag and drop you songs into this folder.
This should now work for you and its much quicker than the philips software.
The Philips GoGear Micro Jukebox is a portable MP3 player that plays MP3 files and WMA files and also displays photos. Download music, copy it to the GoGear player and enjoy your tunes everywhere you go.
Things You'll Need:
* Philips GoGear and USB cable * Internet connection * Online music download service * Secure method of making online payments * Windows Media Player software
Download music in MP3 or WMA formats. You can buy songs from many online sources. If you choose to buy from iTunes, be aware that you will need to convert them from the native iTunes format to MP3 files. The iTunes software will do this for you.
Import the songs to your Windows Media Player Library if they are not already there. Windows Media Player can be set to check for new files in certain folders each time it launches, so this might happen automatically. . Connect the Philips GoGear device to your computer with the USB cable and click on the "Sync" tab in Windows Media Player. Drag songs you want to copy to the "Sync list" on the right-hand side of the Windows Media Player window.
Click on the "Start Sync" button at the bottom of the list pane when you have all of the songs on the list. You should be able to check at the top of the list pane to see how much space is available on your MP3 player in order to make sure you have enough room.
Wait while the files transfer and then disconnect the player from your computer. You may have to click on "Safely Remove Hardware" in your system tray (usually on the bottom right corner of the screen) depending on your computer.
Open Windows Media Player 11
Right-click a song on your computer that you want to change and select "Advanced Tag Editor"
Change the Genre
Now, you must delete the version of your song off your GoGear (the ones without the genre), and then resync the newly-edited song using Windows Media Player.
It is slow and painful, but you cannot make these edits once the song is already loaded onto the GoGear. Also, you cannot simply sync the newly-edited songs onto the GoGear once you are finished with the edits, without first deleting the song off the GoGear, because the GoGear would otherwise think, "Hey, this song is already on here, I'm going to ignore you now!"
Your formating for your songs are fine. The Phillps GoGear uses mpeg as well as long as they are not AAC formating. You need to open Windows Media Player and click on the Library tab and then Add to Library. I'd recommend using the advanced tab when the window pops up. You can then tell WMP exactally where the songs are at in the itunes folder. You'll want to find out where they are at first. It should load them onto WMP from there and then you can move them to you GoGear. Enjoy.
connect to laptop/computer. go to "computer" find the player -- open it internal storage -- open it playlists -- open it right click any of the playlists and click properties. click the references tab. go back to the folder called music in the device. click and drag the songs into the window called references. when finished click ok.
Not Sure!! BUT!.... when certain songs are downloaded...looking at the details for the song in you folders list.....under the tabs Album Artist etc names might be spelled slightly different....the MP3 player pics that up and makes random folders and such.....it cant organize them...even if you change the files name......check it out....you'll see what I mean....hope this helps...........FYI...pirated material...will usually do these random changes to the file names etc.....DONT PIRATE!!! =) hope I made sense and this helps
Before trying to delete the duplicate songs, first try re-synching your GoGear with Windows Media Player by connecting the GoGear to the computer and clicking on the Sync tab (if you haven't set up the GoGear for automatic sync).
You must use Windows Media Player to delete songs from the GoGear. With your GoGear connected to the PC, you want to highlight (single left click) the icon of the GoGear (or line that says Philips GoGear blah blah blah) on the left hand side of Windows Media Player 11 - this will ensure that you are deleting files from the GoGear itself, and not the computer. Once the GoGear line is highlighted, click on the "Songs" or "Album" folder underneath the GoGear line (NOT the "Songs" or "Album" folder underneath the "Library"). This will bring up a list of songs stored on the GoGear into the middle pane of Windows Media Player 11. Highlight (single left click) a song you want to delete and press the delete button on your computer's keyboard. windows USUALLY gives you a prompt asking if you really want to delete the files/they will be permanently removed from your (GoGear) device. Congratulations, you have just deleted songs from your GoGear! :-)
The HDD 1630 doesn't work particularly well with Windows Media Player 11, so you may have to follow Microsoft's instructions for rolling back to Windows Media Player 10.
On a windows computer go into my computer and explore your rio carbon folder. In there there should be at least 2 folders - Music and recordings. go into the music folder and all of your files should be there. Delete them all and start putting files on again.
If there are no files showing in the Music folder then go back to my computer and right click on your player and click on format. Accept all of the default values and click format. You will then need to download the firmware for your Rio. This can be downloaded from: http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=234
Once you have downloaded it and your player has finished formatting then load the update by clicking on it and follow the instructions to install it. Once this is done then your player will be completely wiped and you can the start putting music back on it.
