How do i download music on my MP3 palayer


You need to connect the player to a computer using an USB cable. The player will be seen by the computer as an external hard drive. Use the operative system features (e.g. file copy and paste) to transfer multimedia files onto your player.

Take music from go gear to my hard drive ?

Just use it as usb flash drive. Connect it through USB port. If it is first time it will take a while to finish the installation. Wait until message Device installed and ready to use will pop up. After that go My computer.... find the Philips go gear. Double click will open folder. Just browse it to find the songs (might be separate folder Songs or Audio). Copy them and paste them on desktop of your computer or any othe folder.
Good Luck

Corrupt Files/Other?

Good Day, Have you tried reformatiing it? Over a period of time your info can get corrupt from transering music back and forth. To format plug it in to usb. Go to my computer It shows up as a removably disc, usually drive f: Right click on drive f: (or the approriate drive) and click format. Let me know what happens, you will have reload the player, also try bypassing the software you are using to tranfer, by opening up drive f: and clicking and dragging your music into it , or you can copy and paste it into drive f: L8R
