The MAC reformatted the player, and eliminated the formatting that contained the music songs - this player had a dual mode system where it could either function as an MSC device or an MTP - the manufacturer placed Recordings and Radio on one mode, and music files on the other. A PC can recognize both sides. Macintosh cannot. This player is not MAC-compatible.

    Oops - forgot to to post the solution - connect the device to a PC, not a Macintosh, and reformat it:


    There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

    WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

    Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
    You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
    Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

I have a philips go gear mp3 player 1GB, i don have the drivers to enable me put more songs in it thru my comp, My computer has windows XP proffessional service park2. please help.

Windows media player has the ability to add/remove/manage media on mp3 players, with media player running, plug the mp3 player in and wait for the computer to respond. Media player should ask you if you want to manage songs on your player.
Alternatively, the Philips website will have a copy of the software to download.
Good luck.

Stop responding or disconnected

1) Format the player first - instructions are in the user manual
2) Upgrade the firmware

If you cannot do any of the above due to non-PC-recognition:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard
