Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. All you have to do is install this VM software on your MAC and you will be able to run any windows applications on your MAC. This other guy apparently does not know what he is doing. The software is only 79 dollars and you can download it and start using it immediately. Here is the link:
http://store.vmware.com/servlet/ControllerServlet?Action=DisplayPage&Env=BASE&Locale=en_US&SiteID=vmware&id=ProductDetailsPage&productID=82532200&urlcode=PaidSearch_Google_AMER-US_AMER-US_VDI_Fusion_WinMac_Search_WWW_fusion&src=PaidSearch_Google_AMER-US_AMER-US_VDI_Fusion_WinMac_Search_WWW_fusion&ossrc=PaidSearch_Google_AMER-US_AMER-US_VDI_Fusion_WinMac_Search_WWW_fusion&CMP=KNC-google&HBX_OU=50&HBX_PK=WWW_fusion&gclid=CNei5cjTzJUCFQOeFQodbU6big

It should bring you right to the site when you click on it but sometimes it does not work. If not simply cut and paste it into the address bar on your browser and hit enter. This is the best Virtual Machine software out there. You do not even have to reboot your computer. It will be like having a windows and a MAC machine at the same time, 2 Laptops in 1 ! The best of both worlds, well worth the investment. I hope you find this information helpful, If you do please take the time to rate it Fixya for me because this will definately Fix this problem and any other problem you will run into when you need to run a windows application. If you need any further help feel free to conact me at geokohler@gmail.com I will help you if you need any further assistance with this. It was a pleasure helping you, Enjoy the new world of windows capability,
George

Installation for philips gogear using apple macintosh


Can't. But, you can simply plug in the gogear into a mac USB port and manually drag music into the MUSIC folder. Files must go into that folder for player to recognize them.

Other than that, software only available for PC.

My philips gogear sa3025/37 wont work


The SA3025 is not compatible with Macintosh. It will show up as "Internal" or some such, but you won't be able to load the songs into there properly. That is why the documentation says:
System requirements
• Windows® 2000, XP, Vista

lucky - make sure you are not using MAC or Windows Vista. Make sure the software is installed. Try another usb port in your computer. Try a usb port on another computer with same OS.
Suji - Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
Open the Philips Device Manager (Start à All Programs à Philips Digital Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and click on the “Repair” tab.  Then click on the “Repair” button to start the repair process.  Most of the time, when your player is in that state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged in.  If this is the case: Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.

Philips GoGear Firmware Upgrade
You need to get the latest firmware upgrade from the Philips website:
1. Go to www.philips.com/support
2. Enter your country/language
3. Enter your model # SA6045 or whatever
4. Click on the link for your exact model # (the one w/o the "B" in it)
5. Click on "Software & Drivers"
6. Download the updated "Device/Firmware Manager"
7. Once installed, open the Philips Device Manager
8. Click on the "Update" tab, then the "Update" button (with your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course)
9. Your Mp3 players firmware will update automatically
If you do not have the latest version of the Philips Device Manager installed (the latest is the version from the Philips website), then clicking the "Update" button will give you a false positive saying "The firmware on your device is already up to date."

RCA mp3 player software won't install on my computer.


You don't need the installer- Windows Media Player will find the device, then click on "Sync" at the top to download the music to your player.

Philips Go Gear MP3/Video Player 2 GB (Model SA3125)


The Phillips Go Gear is not compatible to Windows Vista, and there is nothing one can download to make it compatible. I contacted Phillips, and they said that there are no plans to update the software so that it works on Vista. Pass this to everyone that is having a similar problem. Contact Phillips on their website, and request that the Phillips Go Gear software be updated to include Windows Vista. If more people raise a stink (especially threatening never to buy Phillips products), maybe something will be done.
