    Well I tried FFlamehead11's solution and unfortunately it did not work for me. Now all my music and vids are gone and the mp3 STILL doesn't work. I even tried pushing a pin into the reset button on the bottom and it didn't work. I left it connected to my pc with the screen showing the battery charging and it even said it was fully charged. But when I turn it on it just goes to the go gear screen and then says BYE. GRRRRR!

Hi,

Please follow the below steps and check if that resolves the issue:

  1. Press down on and hold the "Power" button on your Philips GoGear MP3 player.
  2. Press down on and hold the "Volume Up" button on your Philips GoGear MP3 player. Continue to hold both of these buttons down for three consecutive seconds. The MP3 player will turn itself off.
  3. Press and hold "Power" until your Philips GoGear MP3 player turns itself back on. Your GoGear will no longer be frozen and you can use it as normal.
If you require further assistance then please revert back.

Regards

I ran the battery on my MP3 player completely down and it shut off. I charged it and now all the songs are gone... is there a way to recover the lost songs?


Try this:


1)Perform a system reset, which won't erase your files, to attempt to correct playback. Locate a thin object, such as pen tip or unfolded paper clip and insert it into the small reset hole on the bottom of your GoGear. Hold the thin object in place until you see the unit shut down completely. Your system has been reset. Power the device back on to see if the corrupted files have been corrected. If the reset failed to correct the issue, perform a file recovery on your GoGear.
2)Initiate a file recovery by first connecting your GoGear to your computer. From your computer's "Start" menu, choose "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Area Device Manager" and "Philips Device Manager." The Philips Device Manager software will be activated. Inspect your GoGear to confirm that it is turned off. Plug the small end of the supplied USB cord into the bottom of your GoGear while holding down the "Volume Up." Insert the larger end into a free USB port on your computer. Hold the key as the "Philips Device Manager" reads your GoGear and activates recovery mode. Click "Repair" and follow the onscreen prompts as given by the "Philips Device Manager" to complete the process of memory recovery. Disconnect your GoGear from your computer properly after the process is complete and restart your MP3 player.
3)Reload and replace the files onto your GoGear by first connecting your GoGear to your computer. Plug the supplied USB cord's small end into the bottom of your GoGear and the large end into your comptuer's USB port. Initiate Windows Media Player by clicking on its icon if it doesn't start upon connection with your GoGear. In the left pane of the WMP, click "Philips GoGear Aria." Click the arrow on the top left edge of the WMP window, followed by "Music." Highlight all files, and click "Delete." Click the "Sync" tab on WMP, and drag and drop the music files you would like to replace and reload into the "Sync List" panel. Click "Start Sync." The files will be freshly loaded onto your GoGear.
4)Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer to avoid memory corruption by first closing all applications in use by the GoGear (WMP). Click the USB device icon in your system's tray (located on the bottom right corner of your screen). Follow the prompts in order to safely remove your GoGear from your computer. When your computer tells you it's safe to remove your GoGear, unplug the USB cord from your GoGear.


Hope this helps!

Vista no longer recognizes my gogear. Seems to have started after upgrading/renewing Norton 360.


Hi

Reinstall philips gogear drivers again and im sure it will work. This is probably due to your gogear drivers corrupted, reinstalling will help to repair the software. Check and let me know if vista recognizes your gogear.

"Updating player" at start-up


There is not a way around this - Philips is not going to issue another firmware upgrade for this model. It is one of those minor annoyances that you have to live with.

Some problems


Try downloading the more recent version of the HDD1830 software at the Philips website - www.usasupport.philips.com

Also, you can try both a Repair and an Update through Philips Device Manager: (Warning - both processes will delete all files form your GoGear)
1) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website
2) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
3) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off (if you haven't done so already) - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).
