Only perform this procedure if you have also downloaded the Device/Firmware Manager from the Philips website first:

Recovery Mode for Philips' GoGear
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.

NEED TO USE THE PHILIPS MEDIA CONVERTER APPLICATION PROVIDED TO CONVERT FILES TO FORMAT THAT THE PLAYER CAN READ


Hello,

All support for the SA6045/02 is on this page:

No cd for go gear to convert videos


You can get it by going to www.usasupport.philips.com
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on "software & drivers"
Click on "Media Converter Software" - download and install

You have to use the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter to convert/transfer videos. If the converter is not recognizing a specific video type - FLV, for instance - download a free program called Riva FLV Encoder and convert the videos to AVI format first. Then the Philips Media Converter will recognize them.

The Philips Media Converter is not capable of converting an entire DVD - you will have to acquire video editing software, and then break up the DVD files into 15-minute chunks, and then convert each chunk.

If you are getting a codec error, do a google search for free video codecs - they are out there. Windows Codec Pack and downloading the latest version of quicktime will give you most of these needed codecs.

This player is not capable of playing copyright-protected videos - so don't even bother with them.

Additional information is available both from Philips website and from Arcsoft's website.

Converting files to smv


You must use the Philips (ArcSoft) Media Converter that came on the installation CD. If you lost your CD, you can find it at www.usasupport.philips.com - enter your model # and go to the Software & Drivers section of your model #. It will say Media converter software.

DOWNLOADING MP3 PLAYER TO WINDOWS VISTA LAPTOP


For Vista compatibility with the SA6045 -

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."
