Philips mp3 hdd183017

I should've bought an iPod, too. Try resetting it using the Device Manager (after backing up all of the songs), then put the songs back on.

My player isn't recognized by the Device Manager or Windows Media Player

I was experiencing this similar problem, and from my research so were alot of other people, what finally worked for me was this:

  • Update all the software on your computer via Phillips site
  • Open the Philips Device Manager
  • With the device connected and the 'connected to pc' screen showing on the GoGear, do a 'soft reset' by holding the Power Off + Volume Up buttons for a few seconds
  • As soon as the device restarts itself, hold the Volume Down button, the computer should now recognize the GoGear
  • Follow the onscreen directions to Repair the device
  • Thank the intarwebs.

Please help me.

There is not a virus most likely, but here is how you will start from scratch. Connect GoGear to computer --> Open Philips Device Manager --> click on Repair --> Click on Repair again

Then do the same for "Update"

If this fails, reformat the GoGear in Windows Media Player - consult www.Microsoft.com for instructions WITH pictures.on how to do this (Click sync --> open drop down menu under Sync tab --> click on Philips goGear SAXXXX --> click on Format)

These methods will start you over from scratch.

Wont allow me to sync anymore songs but not full

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) 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 successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).
