I have uploaded my mp3 music manually, and somehow it uploaded music/pictures automatically and basically it shows me an error I can't delete I can't do anything about it and it I have uploaded my mp3 music manually, and somehow it uploaded music/pictures automatically and basically it shows me an error I can't delete I can't do anything about it and it buggers me off now. When it plays error songs it freezes and I have to restart.
Are there any solutions/advices on how to delete mp3 & error music form the player?
Is there any downloads for Unicode. When I have uploaded music it showed me squares.
P.S. (last Question) is it possible creating a playlist by folders & not by artist or gender or any other?
Thanks, waiting for your replies

Here's what happened: When you first synced your GoGear to Windows Media Player, you may have set up the automatic sync option. When this option is selected,Windows Media Player will add EVERY song, picture, etc from your Library on your computer to the GoGear. Now, every time you sync you device, it adds every new file from your computer into the GoGear automatically.
Here's what you want to do (this process assumes you have Windows Media Plaer 11 and windows XP - if you have another version, just let me know and I will give you modified instructions - reply to the FixYa website, not to my personal e-mail address):
1) Backup all files stored on your GoGear, as this process will delete all files from your GoGear
2) Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your GoGear connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portbale media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding songs/files you don't want into your player
3) As long as the GoGear now says, "OK to disconnect from PC," then open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
4) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
5) 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 succesfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new
6) you will have to re-add all your files (only the ones you want in there) to the GoGear as the Repair process has deleted all files on the device; as long as you followed the process in Step 2 above, then Windows Media Player will no longer add the files you DON'T want to the GoGear

My philips gogear 6GB hdd1630 mp3 player is frozen on the tracks page (where all the songs are) its not doing anything, i pressed the power button and it didnt do anything.I plugged my mp3 player up to the charger it still didnt do anything .Nothing else works either the only thing i havent tried is plugging it up to my computer but i dont want to try that just yet because im afraid that, that will make all my songs come off.
I HAVE ONLY HAD THIS THING FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS, PURCHASED NEW FROM SAMS. THE POWER BUTTON AFTER 1 WEEK BEGAIN TO WORK SLOWLY, 2 DAYS AGO I COULD NOT TURN IT OFF, AFTER A LONG TIME I FINALLY GOT IT TO TURN OFF. NOW IT WON'T TURN ON . I HAVE TRIED IT WITH THE POWER CORD PLUGED IN TOO. I ALSO CHARGED IT OVERNITE, STILL NOTHING. PHILIPS MAKES SUCH GOOD PRODUCTS I CAN'T BELIEVE THE PROBLEMS I AM HAVING.

The same thing happened to me. I contacted Philips and they sent me this solution, which worked for me. Question My GoGear has no power/no display even connected to the power supply with the AC adapter. What should I do? Answer Do a soft reset by pressing and holding the Power On/OFF button and the volume + key for a couple of seconds. Then connect your GoGear to a power outlet with the AC Adapter to charge the player again for around 30 minutes. Try turning the unit back on and see if the display appears. If the display is able to come on again, keep the player connected for another 3-4 hours until it is fully charged before use, else contact our Customer Care Center for assistance.

I keep getting a "Buffer Overrun Detected..." error and my MP3 has gone completely dead (not battery related!) I can't even switch it on. I tried to run the device manager again and reload it but I am still getting the same error.
Posted by CaroleHarv... on
I had this problem twice, the player keeps displaying some pixels spreaded randomly on the screen when I press the play/pause button or when its connected to the pc, while Philips Device Manager keeps displaying the error:
"Buffer overrun detected! Program: ...hilips\SA21xx\Device Manage.exe A buffer overrun has been detected wich has corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated." (I have an old SA2115/02 device)
When I contacted Philips about this problem, they said to bring the device to them but it was out of service.
So I tried lots of repair/recvery programs and got to a point where I couldn't even format the player cause of the write-protected error. I was about to trash it when I tried this last method :
-I used an USB cable extender so I won't brake my PC's USB port
-I started Philips Device Manager
-I began pluggin/unpluggin the device repeatedly while Philips Device Manager was loading
-after the program loaded and recognized the player without giving me the error above, I left the device plugged
-I used the repair option, took a deep breath and waited until the operation was finished and voila!
Now I don't know if it will also work for you because I tried lots of rude methods wich I don't remember the exact order, like the first time I've repaired it, but it's worth trying.

Apparently if you have windows media player upgraded to version 11, there are problems with some philips players. They suggest reverting to Windows media player 10 may solve the problem. You must be running windows xp for this player 's software to work - else win media player should do it fine. here is a link to the manual for your player; http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/h/hdd1620_05/hdd1620_05_dfu_eng.pdf and here is the link to the drivers; http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?scy=GB&slg=ENG&mid=Link_Software&cat=MP3_PLAYERS_CA_GB_CONSUMER&sct=HDD_AUDIO_JUKEBOX_SU_GB_CONSUMER&session=20070320110713_126.96.36.199&grp=PORTABLE_ENTERTAINMENT_GR_GB_CONSUMER&ctn=HDD1620/05&dct=PAL&did=ENG&file=/files/h/hdd1620_05/hdd1620_05_dmr_eng.htm which you can download and update your pc. Hope this helps :)

my philips gogear mix 2gb,no power and no detected in computer what is the couse of them?
Posted by jaimecisne... on
There is a small tiny hole which is the RESET to the player Use a small office pin to pres and hold as the processor will reset . Also remove or uninstall the gogear on the PC and restart. Now connect the go gear and it will be detected as a new hardware and installed. If not there are errors on the player and to confirm test it on another PC.

This headunit was installed in my car in 2000. I'd like to connect an Ipod now, but not via FM transmission - not if I can avoid it in any case. Otherwise no available solutions support this discontinued product line. This unit has an option of installing a CD changer (also an Aux in) but I cant find any documentation on the pins of the "C" plug in the rear. Looks like ISO, but seems to be different. Can anyone help?
This device is in the wrong section, i'm just posting to clear out the que.
