Question about Philips GoGear SA178 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Losing songs on my MP3 player

I've recently got a Phillips go gear 1gb mp3 player and although I've loaded around 178 songs onto it, only 66 are showing up. When I look at my mp3 player through the computer, all songs are showing, but as soon as I unplug the device from the USB, the songs disappear!!

The songs are in the wrong format. Performa  repair to erase all songs from the mp3 player, and start over from scratch.

Hi myangeldebra...

I would suggest a firware update may solve this problem.
Your music files are not affected by a firware update.
This update is for all size GB vibes.
You can go to this Philips website and download the latest firware and softwear available for your MP3 player SA1VBEO4 Go Gear vibe.

Empty Song Folder - I followed the instructions from the quick start guide to to load music onto my sansa clip 1gb mp3 player and it shows that it copied it to my player but once I disconnect the usb from...


The songs are in the wrong format. They probably have a restrictive DRM license that limits playback on mp3 players (although the songs may play fine on your computer). iTunes format will not work at all. The best way to avoid a problem like this is to only use songs that are in mp3 format.

I just got a sansa clip 1gb mp3 player & need help on everything!


The Sansa Clip is not compatible with iTunes. You will have to get your music from another music service, preferably one that gives you the songs in mp3 format instead of AAC format (although it will accept WMA's, the DRM-protection system on most WMA's will give you problems down the line, especially if you cancel the music service that you got them from - songs in mp3 format will be usable even after you've cancelled your music service subscription).

The songs have to be DRM-free, so you will have to either get them from Cd's, you will have to get DRM removal software (not reccomended), or you must convert them to Mp3 format.

If you have recently upgraded to Windows Media Player 11, either manually or via Windows Update, this could be the problem.

In this case, uninstall Windows Media Player 11 from Add or Remove Programs, in Control panel.
Also uninstall Windows Media 11 runtime.
This will roll back to Windows Media Player 10.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

If you are already using Media Player 10, this problem could also be caused by corrupt firmware on the player.
make sure you have Philips Device Manager installed, from the product CD.
Run Philips Device Manager, and select the restore or repair option, then follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and re-flash the corrupt firmware. All tracks on the player will be deleted.

Reload a few tracks to test.
