  • ashtonlay Jan 11, 2009

    when i try to turn it on it freezes, and then when i go to plug it into my laptop to do the restore feature with the software, a dialogue box pops up saying something about a buffer-overrun and that the program cannot continue running safely, and then it exits the program.

    same problem with "buffer overrun" every time while I try to start the Device Manager

    When I switch on the Flash player, it shows the GoGear logo and freezes. I won't be able to switch it off unless I remove the battery. But it functions well as a usb flash drive. I need it to function as an mp3 player again.

SOURCE: philips gogear device cannot start

Install and run the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

NOTE: it is only compatible with Windows XP.

Select the Repair / Restore option and follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format and re-load the device system files.

If this doiesn't help, then the problem may be a faulty hard disk.

There is a program on the installation CD called the Philips Device Manager - it has a Repair option. If you have lost the CD, you can get the Device Manager from Philips website.

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.

SOURCE: "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.

Do you allready try in other computers?
Turn off your antivirus, and try to connect
its your computer usb 2.0 (when u connect mp3 player to your pc show something like This device works better in a 2.0 usb port?)
Some times a non original version of Xp dont really works good whit usb devices as digital cameras, usb flash memories, cell phones, and all in one printers (extraible disk drives); In This case try first in other machine if this works reformat your machine o if you got the restauration cds used in your pc

MY PHILIPS GOGEAR STARTS UP AND FREEZES AND JUST DISPLAY A MESSEGE SAYING (WAIT FOR USB CONNECTION) CAN SOMEONE HELP ME?


I found this on page 55 of my owner's manual.
My GoGear MP3 Player was frozen, wasn't being
recognized by my computer and this worked for me.

Follow these steps exactly:

1 Reset your player first by inserting a pin or sharp
object into the reset hole at the back of the player.
2 Launch Philips Device Manager from Start > Programs >
Philips Device Manager. Select the Repair Tab.
3 While pressing the Vol + on your device, connect it
to the PC.
4 Confirm Yes when you see the screen , you can release
the Vol + now.
5 Choose your device name (SA60xx) in the box.
6 After the repair completes , click OK and continue using
your player as usual.

Doesn't show up when i plug it in to my laptop


To download music or photos on to your Philips GoGear, you need to use a computer that has Windows Media Player and Device Manager already installed. Once these are installed, the steps to sync your Philips GoGear Jukebox using Windows Media Player are fairly easy to follow. Follow these steps to sync your Philips GoGear.

Connect your Philips GoGear to the computer with the USB cable. The USB connector on the GoGear is on the top, and will be on the front or back of your computer. You will see a USB connection icon as soon as the GoGear is connected to the computer.
1.Start Windows Media Player from the Start Menu or from the desktop. To transfer files to your GoGear from your computer, click Copy to CD or Device (with WMP 9) or the Sync tab (with WMP 10). 2.Find the Items to Copy pane. In the drop-down list, click the category or playlist that you want to copy to your GoGear. Make sure that items that you do not want to copy are unchecked. 3.Locate the Items on Device pane. In the drop-down list, click GoGear. When you have selected the items that you want to sync, click the Copy (with WMP 9) or Start Sync (with WMP 10) button.

MY philips go gear 2gb music player does not getting on.


Run a Repair in Philips Device Manager - the program came on the installation CD.

If that fails the first time: Unplug the GoGear from the PC. Uninstall all Philips software in the Add/Remove Programs section of Control Panel. Restart your computer and reinstall the software. Replug the GoGear. Re-run the Repair.

Good luck!

Make sure you have installed Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

With the player powered off:

Press and hold VOL+ whilst connecting to the PC.

PC will show drive as Recovery Device (or similar) and device manager will start and show "Your device has an error...."

Click repair and follow the on-screen prompts.

When prompted, disconnect the player and power on.

Player will show "Loading" and then shut down.

Power on again.

Player will show "Updating" and then shut down again.

Player can now be powered up as normal.

Restart
