Question about Philips GoGear ViBE Digital Media Player

2 Answers

Hello, I have a problem with my GoGear Vibe. I got it for christmas so it's new! My brother was transfering some videos from his Mac Book on it. Then we couldn't switch it on! We tried several times. We could only read on the screen: 20%...40% and then "File system error!!" What should I do to fix this problem?

For sure, the file system is corrupted and is the cause of your woes. The fix lies with the Philips Songbird software. If you do not have Songbird, download it for Windows or Mac here:http://www.usa.philips.com/c/mp3-media-player/22126/cat/en/#/difference/philipssongbird.


Once you have Songbird installed, launch it and select "Repair my Philips device" in the Tools menu. Select your device and follow the instructions specific to your device. For example, instructions for the GoGear Vibe are to disconnect the device, power it down completely, and hold the volume-up key during and after USB connection until the message window disappears.

If the repair utility endlessly indicates it is checking for updates, you are likely using an out-of-date version of Songbird - probably the one that came with your GoGear. If this describes your situation, launch Songbird and select "Check for updates" in the Help menu. This will at least get you upgraded to version 1.9 (currently), even though the latest version is 1.11 (currently).

Instructions that came with some older versions for connecting GoGear in repair mode were incomplete. They left out a crucial step of turning off the GoGear and waiting for it to power down completely before reconnecting in repair mode. Newer versions of Songbird include the ability to reformat the device, reset the device, and to get progress updates during synchronization.

If you've found this information helpful, please indicate as such.

How can i transfer pictures from facebook to to a philips gogear vibe 8g without it coming as a unsupported image


Use the synchronization software that came with the device, Philips Songbird. It will automatically convert most media to the proper GoGear friendly format during synchronization.




If you do not have Songbird, download it for Windows or Mac here:http://www.usa.philips.com/c/mp3-media-player/22126/cat/en/#/difference/philipssongbird.

How to put videos on gogear vibe 8gb using philips songbird


In songbird bring up your video(s) you want to add. Select then drag and drop to the Vibe list. Songbird will place it in the correct format and place it in the correct spot on your Vibe. do not use suggested programs they are junk windows Media player does not support proper formatting. and soft29.com you will have a bunch of adware and and other bloat ware included. Stay with songbird for proper format and transfer.

Hi glenn196633,

For more information on Philips Songbird, like FAQ's, manuals, and DIY videos, visit:

Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that Philips Songbird is compatible with Macs:

It also seems the GoGear Vibe is not Mac compatible.

Visit the Philips Support Site at www.philips.com/support (enter your model number for product specific information).

Hope this helps - if so, let me know by rating this solution! Thanks!

I have Phillips GoGear Vibe 8GB SA2VBE08K It is


Use a pen tip or other sharp object to insert the RESET hole on the side of the player.

Here is a page which shows you how to transfer music over to your new Phillips Media Player. Windows Media Player sync is specific to Windows products. Do NOT use this to transfer music to your Phillips media player. Use the software supplied by the manufacturer.

If this solves your problem, please come back and rate our solution. Thank you.

This is the FAQ I found on the support website. I think it is always safe to use the Philips songbird to do the converting and transferring.

"Please always use Philips Songbird to transfer your videos (.mp4) file to avoid playback issue.

I DONT KNOW HOW TO PUT VIDEOS ON MY GO GEAR VIBE


Hello,

Support for GoGear Vibe can found selecting your model on next page:
http://www.search.philips.com/search/search?q=GoGear+Vibe&s=all&l=global&h=all&o=
Select your model from the list.

Under Software and Drivers look for the download of Philips Media Converter Software, in the support page matching your player.
Install and run Philips Media Converter for conversion and transfer of your videos.

When wanting to put videos of e.g. YouTube onto your player, first download the latest codecs for video:
http://www.download.com/windows
Download and install the "directshow codec pack".
To start a download of video from YouTube, click the Internet Video Downloader.lnk icon in the right corner below of the computer screen.
