Question about Philips GoGear Flash MP3 Player

1 Answer

"format not supported" - error message of death

I got a Philips GoGear 4GB {model # SA3245}

I have Windows XP, and the highspeed USB connection. The software for the player downloaded correctly.

Media Converter 2.5 does not recognize any of the songs on my pc. They are not Itunes tracks. They're WMA files stored in my music file under 'my computer'.

Since it didnt recognize any of my tracks, I downloaded the "Jodix WMA to MP3 Converter" That program does not support any of the tracks on my computer either.

I tried drag and drop of the song files from the 'music file' directly to the 'mass storage device' folder. They do show up in the player, but when I try to play them..I get a "file not found" error message on the player itsself.

I tried drag and drop of the song files from each CD directly from the CD-ROM to the 'mass stoarge device' folder. Files are 'not found' according to the player.

I reset the player with the little reset button. I reinstalled the software.

What the hell is wrong?

    Several programs and computer nerds tell me I can convert from WMA to MP3.



    The booklet that came with the MP3 player says I CAN drag and drop.



    Ripping the tracks to my windows media player has already been done. And that still doesnt help.



    Thanks anyway.

1. songs which have copyright protection on aren't recognised by the player
2.you can't convert from WMA to MP3
3. you can't drag and drop from a CD you have to rip it first. i suggest you use windows media player for this as it is very quick you just put in the disk and click 'RIP'
4. you can down;load the latest media converter from the philips website which will actually convert things
5. try upgrading the firmware (from the philips website) you need to download the new device manager and then follow insructions from the web page
6. try reparing your device using the new device manager (it will delete anything you have on there

Philips go gear sa3245/97 not starting


You can download content to a Philips GoGear multimedia player using Windows Media Player or MusicMatch Jukebox in Windows. Earlier versions of Windows starting with 2000/ME and XP are compatible with GoGear. If the device is not recognized by the Windows XP operating system or is receiving error messages, you may have older versions of the necessary software installed. There also may be firmware issues with the GoGear device.

Instructions


Connect the Philips GoGear to another USB port on the computer. Sometimes USB ports go out, especially those in the front of the computer case. Try inserting the GoGear into another port and see if XP can now recognize the device.


Download Service Pack 1 or later for the XP operating system (see Resources). Philips GoGear can only operate on XP systems with at least Service Pack 1 installed. You may also receive an error message pertaining to the service pack when trying to insert the installation disc for the GoGear support software.


Install the latest version of Windows Media Player. Philips GoGear requires at least Windows Media Player 11. Windows Media Player 11 is available for XP .


Install the latest version of MusicMatch Jukebox (see Resources). Earlier version of this software may be causing error messages regarding missing MP3 tag information and missing tracks. Follow the download prompts, then unzip the folder and click on the "HDD_xxx.exe" installation file. The latest version of the software will be installed.


Install the latest firmware on the Philips GoGear. The actual firmware required depends on your GoGear model. Open either Philips Device Manager or Songbird, depending upon which management software you are currently using. Close all programs on the computer except for the Device Manager/Songbird. Connect the GoGear to the power supply and the computer. Click the "Repair" tab in the Device Manager and click "Repair," or click "Tools" in Songbird and select "Check for updated firmware," and the firmware will be updated on the GoGear.

Philips GoGear SA3245 (4 GB) Digital Media Player Can I download songs form I Tunes to this device?


You can download music for the GoGear from any reputable website, iTunes. it is just a case of plugging in the USB cable, go to My Computer and Look for the Philips Removable Drive.

open it up, go to the Music Folder and add your MP3 songs.

To add videos to this player you need to use the software Philips provided. It's a bit complicated to use so follow the instructions carefully. The software will convert the videos to a Philips format to enable you to add them to the Video Folder. You can't just add a file as this will not work, it needs to be converted.
Hope this helps you.

Philips gogear SA3245 mp3 audio/video player


Most GoGear's will work with Windows XP Only - several will work with Vista, but may require a firmware upgrade. NONE will work with Windows ME or below. Sorry.

There is software available from Philips website, but it does not include drivers for legacy Operating Systems.
