    My Mp3 Player (Philips GoGear 8GB) Every Time I Turn It On It Says Please Connect Player To PC And When i Connect IT a screen comes up and it says DeviceDiversity.bin and WMPInfo

    Same problem, after trying everything I found that this MP3 player is good as a portable hard drive, I should expend the extra bucks needed for an Ipod.

You have to run the "Repair" function in the Philips Device Manager to remove this error message - see Philips website or call them for details.

Then upgrade the firmware:
Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.

Philips GoGear Firmware Upgrade
You need to get the latest firmware upgrade from the Philips website:
1. Go to www.philips.com/support
2. Enter your country/language
3. Enter your model # SA6045 or whatever
4. Click on the link for your exact model # (the one w/o the "B" in it)
5. Click on "Software & Drivers"
6. Download the updated "Device/Firmware Manager"
7. Once installed, open the Philips Device Manager
8. Click on the "Update" tab, then the "Update" button (with your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course)
9. Your Mp3 players firmware will update automatically
If you do not have the latest version of the Philips Device Manager installed (the latest is the version from the Philips website), then clicking the "Update" button will give you a false positive saying "The firmware on your device is already up to date."

Hi, I am using Philips Go Gear 4 GB MP3 palyer. It has 3 GB free space but when I start the player,below message comes . Please tell me how to solve the issue "Memory Full Connect to PC &...


Possible that some of the files in the GoGear are not to the requriement of the player. So download the media converter and download the files to be transferred to the player. In the first place connect the player to the PC and move OFF all the files , delete the memory to be free and then reload using the converter .
Use the link below:

How do you charge a 2bg go gear? trued laptip but no luck my in mp3 it won't come on


Your laptop has to have a USB 2.0 port. Many laptops do not even have enough power to properly run an mp3 player. If your laptop is definitely compatible, here is the method to force recognition (note: the Philips HDD series of GoGear needs a proprietary adapter, so if your model # starts with HDD, make sure you have the original adapter):

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

I can download music from computer ok but not pictures


There is not a Vista-compatible driver or software - you can read the Vista warning by going to www.usasupport.philips.com - this particular mp3 player (HDD series) is completely obsolete.

STMP3500 driver for PhilipsGogear 1 gb


The driver is installed when you install the Firmware Manager software on the product CD.

The player will show as STMP3500 when it is in recovery mode (usually caused by corrupt firmware)

Install the Frimware manager.

Connect the player.

If asked for a driver let Windows search automatically.

If you get a Signed Driver message just click ok to continue.

Run Firmware Manager and follow the on-screen prompts, and all should be well.
