Question about Philips GoGear Flash MP3 Player

2 Answers

Playlist I am trying to sync my playlists from Windows Media to the GoGear model SA3245/37. I create the playlist, but when I hit sync to device, the playlist does not transfer over. Any suggestions? I know how to create the "on the go playlist" but that's not what I want. I would like to have several playlists available. Thanks in advance.

Something that I did was just add folders via explorer and use them as a type of jerry rigged play list. You have to go to folder view to use them.

How do I put music or videos on it?


You will need to create a playlist on Windows Media Player with your songs, videos, etc. Save the playlist then plug in the Philips GoGear Media Player and turn it on. On top of Windows Media Player find the sync tab and select the playlist you made and drag it to the "Sync List" pane. Then finally click on start sync and you are on your way.

How do i copy music to my mp3


You can sync your music and pictures to your player using Windows Media Player.


By default, Windows Media Player automatically loads all the music and picture files

stored in your My Music and My Pictures folders into the library. If you add new files to
these folders, they will also be automatically added to the library.


If Windows Media Player has selected to sync your device automatically, you can choose not to sync your entire media library. You can choose what you wish to sync from existing

playlists or create new playlists. These playlists you have selected will then sync to your player every time you connect it to your computer.


1 Click the down arrow beneath the Sync tab and select Philips GoGear SA60xx > Set Up Sync.

> The Device Setup dialog box appears.


2 In the Available playlists pane, select the existing playlists you want to sync and then

click Add.

Philips GoGear SA3245 - Playlists Not Showing Up on Player


Have solved this problem on GoGear syncing with WMP 11 by going to options on the device itself, then go to the "settings" option, scroll down to "PC Connection Preferences", from here you will select the check box saying "MTP" then back out of options and connect your device and go back to your WMP 11 and drag your playlists to the syncing area and resync your device. You should then be able to see your playlists under the playlist option in music along with the "playlist on the go" playlist.

Hope this will help!

Sansa m250 playlists


First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:

) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB".
2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".

Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.

However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.


To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:

- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode
- Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list
- Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings"
- Check "Synchronize device automatically"
- Set "View" to "All Playlists"
- Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device
- Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.

Hope this helps

Gogear 6330/17 - Creating/Adding Playlist


You MUST use Windows Media Player 10 - Windows Media Player 9 or 11 will not transfer the playlist correctly.  Once you have version 10 installed, then the instructions in the HDD6330 user manual will be accurate.

Big problem with play lists


According to the manual for most GoGear's, you have to have automatic synchronization enabled in Windows Media Player for the playlists to transfer correctly.I still have not been able to verify if this is true, since I have been able to transfer playlists fine with and without auto-sync engaged.

I haven't tried a 3115 specifically, but with an SA4111 and an SA5125, I just created the playlist in Windows Media Player 11, right clicked on the playlist name after it was created, selected "Add to Sync List," and then "Start Sync" with GoGear connected. I used this method, because it seemed more likely to add the songs AS A PLAYLIST rather than just dragging and dropping the tracks WITHIN the playlist.

As I look more closely at the documentation for the SA3115, however, it does not have the same playlists options as other GoGear's - it seems to limit you to Playlist-on-the-Go. I know that the GoGear will not recognize folders that you create in Windows Explorer, so that option is out. You can connect the GoGear, and see if a Playlists folder appears in the left-hand pane underneath the icon of the GoGear in the Sync tab. My gut feeling, however, is that this player is just not as equipped as other GoGear models for playlist transfer. I'll go back to the lab on tuesday and see if I can find anything new.
