Question about Philips SA2325 (2 GB) MP3 Player
I hace an Philips GoGear 2320/02. When I start it, it freezes while showing the Philips logo. When its connected to my pc its a regular usb mas storage deivce, but when I try to update the firmware the philips programme gets an buffer overrun error. I allready tried to format the mp3 player, yet that did not work, neither with FAT32 fs nor with FAT fs.
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.

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.

well done XP! device repaired :)
I'm so happy I didn't sell my travel notebook,
good enough for running XP slowly... very slowly.
I will left more space now than last time. Why I didn't
thought that some kilobytes aren't enough for operating.
