Macbook's are cool, but Philips devices are not Mac compatible - that goes for GoGear's, PhotoFrames, etc.

How to conect to pc


Here's how you do it.
Plug in the Philips GoGear to your computer. Use a USB cable to make the connection so you can begin synchronizing your music collection.
Start Windows Media Player. Depending on how your computer is set up, this program may start automatically when you make the connection with the MP3 player

Find the Sync tab in the media player window. Click on this tab and open the Sync screen. The Sync screen has two panes. The left pane is for the music collection on your computer; the right pane is for the Philips GoGear
Choose the songs from your collection that you want to add to the GoGear's memory. Check the boxes that are presented by each song title.
Click the "Start Sync" button. The files from your computer are being copied onto your GoGear MP3 player.
Wait for the sync to complete. You can monitor the progress in the "Windows Media Player" window.
Close the media player program. Unplug your Philips GoGear from the computer.
Thanks

Non-Supported format detected


Some videos, like music videos, have a copyright protection system on them that will not allow them to play even if you use the converter. You can also go to Philips' website and get the upgrade for your Media Converter - worth a whirl.

2 possible issues:
!) first of all, there are no Philips mp3 players that have Mac-compatible software
2) many laptops have a usb port that is less than 2.0, which is not enough to power this player

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

Cannot access all the Music that I have downloaded


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).
