I gave up after calling technical support and telling them about my download of the "detect USB device" from their website. My computer didn't even detect it! I returned my 2GB player and bought a memory card for my PDA so that I can play music on that.

I am so glad I have been able to start enjoying my Go Gear after passing through a seriuos hard time.Now I have just one prolem and that has to do with changing the rechargable battery. Someone told me the battery can be changed and I have tried to open it with no success.Mine is HDD82/07.I did remove the small screw at the back but still could not open it. This is where I will need some help pls.

Unregistered guest
Jacobanselowen, mine did the same thing. I had to do a complete restore and delete everything on it. After I did that and reloaded my music everything is now recognized.

Any idea how to delete music from the MP3 player? All the information I can find only tells how to delete it from the library not from the portable device.
Thanks

I just got a philips go-gear 2 gig for $5 at a pawn shop. When I plug in the AC adapter the screen lights up, but other than that the unit is completely unresponsive to anything. there is nothing being displayed, no button or combination of buttons seem to help. I just have a gentle continuous flash of the screen. I opened it up and I can't see anything amiss... but I am far from a professional.... any ideas?

i recently bought a philips gogear hdd070, i tried to download files onto it but whenever i opened musicmatch or philips media manager they both did not recognise the player and said 'player not connected' or 'connect player'( but the computer itself did so it was the software). the problem is with the software and there are a few programs that can solve it. i found one, which was already mentioned, called litespeed hdd manager (check it out on google). the program itself is not great by any means, the playlists dont work, you can only download one song at a time onto the thing but its free and safe, and has no trouble locating ur player on the usb drive.download it and install and run it, a grid/table will come up. you then can simply drag and drop (one at a time or else it freezes or doesnt work) and it wud take around 5 seconds to download. Its not pretty to look at and it occasionaly freezes so you have to close and start it again but i have had no problems downloading my music, apart from the slowness of draging each track one at a time. its a pretty desperate measure but well worth trying, there are also non free programs which do a better job, google it out an du will find wat ur looking for. hope it helps

HDD082 was dropped and froze. I "thawed" it but when I tried to add more songs I got an I/O error. I unplugged and tried again but now my device manager doesn't recognize it (but my computer does) and I only get the message
"!Files are missing, reconnect and try again."
Any suggestions?

Does anyone have a power cord for the Philips hdd82/17 model mp3 player that they would like to sell. I have the USB charger that charges through the computer but the mp3 player is giving me a symbol for me to put it on the plug up charger and will not charge through the usb cable.

I won the HDD075/17 from work (Philips) for taking part in the HeartWalk in Seattle. I charged it up and went to add music. All I got was a flashing screen. After calling Customer Support and getting an RMA number I was directed to ship the unit and all parts back to Philips Repair Center via UPS or FedEx (1400 E Tahlequah, Siloam Spring AR 72761; 1-888-744-5477). I then had to wait 10 business days before calling for status. Got it back and now the only issue I am having is that my music files are transferred but don't have any names listed. They all say No Track Found. I'm going to try the reformat and reload that someone else suggested. Also, I have to connect the USB cord directly to my pc. If I try to go thru a hub it does not work. Good luck!

My wifes phillips 065/05 also packed up like Nathes and Supergirls showing a flashing screen when charging and unresponsive. I tried phillips help line and they wanted to charge £130 to repair it. Tech support refused to help further. So I took a gamble and took it apart and got the details from the battery. I tracked down a replacement at www.partsmaster.co.uk their product code PHS310420052231 phillips part no is. 310420052231 Specification is a 3.7v 700mAh Li-ion Rechargeable Battery made by BYD co ltd.
I took the left hand cover off the player and removed the battery and replaced it. Replaced the cover and the unit turned on. It is now charging/functioning correctly. I hope this information is useful to someone. I will be writing to Phillips to complain but it is unlikely to improve the situation for others.

I bought a 30Gb gogear in Febuary and at first it was working fine. I put over 3,000 songs on it and no problems. But then a couple months later it began to freeze up every now and then. I looked up how to restart it and it was fine again. Every time I used it I would charge it again, but I noticed it wasn't holding the charge as well as it used to. The other day I was using it after I had charged it that night and after about an hour maybe less it gave me a warning sign that the battery was going to die. So I turned it off and plugged it back in when I got home. This morning I woke up thinking, 'Oh good, my battery is charged on my gogear I can listen to my music and enjoy my day.' Well much to my suprise when I pushed the All Tracks button it said list empty. I was shocked! I thought it might have messed up or something when I turned it on so I restarted it and tried again...nothing. No songs, anywhere. What happened to the 3,000+ songs I had?! They are not on my computer anymore because being the trusting person I am when it comes to electronics I thought the device had stored all my songs forever. I can't remember all the songs I put on there! Is it possible to get these songs back? Way to go Philips, I will definitly buy your products in the future.

I have a problem with HDD065 2GB mp3 player. It stoped working. It already happened before. It just flashes when i plug the power on. I took it to the authorisd Philips service. They repaired it. But it broke down again and again. It has been 3 times already in the service. They told me that the problem is with INTERNAL MEMORY - EPROM.

The Eprom memory got erased because there is a problem with battery.The replacement of the battery didnt help unfortuantely.

Maybe any of you knows how to upload this Eprom memory into the device beacuse the warranty is over and now if I wanted to get it repaired they would charge me.

I have same problem as Blazej Bebenca - I upgraded the firmware from Philips website - bingo device froze completely. only resort was to let it go flat - recharge and hope - but no it wouldn't turn on at all. before this i had 18months trouble free and could use MusicMatch to download/delete etc with no probs.
bought another off Ebay after 2 days of trying to get musicmatch and DMM to work (I could reset it but not get the HDD065 to see the music it downloaded) i was about to give up but then I found Yahoo Music Juke Box and this works quite well (no plugins required)- downloaded 500 songs last night (album by album) listening to it now. only problem with Yahoo - can't delete a file have to erase all, will worry about this later

Need troubleshooting for my GoGear HDD82/17. I got it last Christmas load about 200 songs worked fine until about 3 weeks ago when I decided to sync some new songs. Ever since it freezes, won't turn off, won't stay on, if it does play the songs are distorted or record mic comes on....it's just haywire all of sudden. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Casey this is of course at your own risk.
Assuming the screen is facing you, undo the right hand side crome cover (the cover with the source/menu/volume buttons) screw and pull the cover off. There is a connector with 3 wires leading to the battery. Unclip the connector carefully and ease out the battery. You can now fit the replacement and replace the side cover and do up the screw.

I have the same problem as loads of you- when I run the musicmatch portable device manager it can't see the gogear even though the gogear knows it's connected and windows can see it too. I downloaded the latest version of the portable device manager from the philips website and had the problem that a couple of you had- it won't install because it needs service pack 1 or later. I am trying to download this now but wanted to ask if anyone had actually had any success going down this route because it all seems pretty painful to me.

Michael....Do not waste any more time on trying to fix your Go Gear. Go out and get yourself an Ipod Shuffle!} It's the geatest little thing ever! I had the HDD82/17 and know use it as a paper weight. Every time you think it starts to works something goes wrong. It's a total lemon:-( My barely lated a year.

Hi Marie Clinton!

Hi Marie!
actually it worked! but only to upload song with Windows Media Player, Jukebox still recognizes the player as "Nike Player" and it's worthless. Also, some songs can not be uploaded using the WMP becaus it says that there's some kind of error.. but hey! at least some songs are on the GoGear! thank you very much!

Ok, you guys are going to owe me big time for this but this is how you fix these problems if its hanging on the startup or frozen and not detecting. My girl has a GoGear and it was frozen on the GoGear logo on starting up. Took me a couple days but I did figure it out. It wasn't detecting on my pc either.

On Windows XP, hook your GoGear to your usb port, right click My Computer choose Properties, Hardware tab then click Device Manager. You will see an option that says Windows Portable Devices(if your GoGear is connected to the USB port) with a plus sign to expand and see your GoGear. What you want to do is: DO NOT UNPLUG IT from the USB port yet. It most likely has a yellow exclamation mark once expanded that says drivers not found or some BS. (By the way dont ask about installing the drivers cuz I did that plenty of times and that did not work either.) Right click that GoGear with the exclamation mark and click uninstall but do not do push anything after. Now unplug your GoGear and it's cable from the USB port and finish the uninstall. Close all that now. Now plug your GoGear in the usb port again and double click My Computer and you should NOW see your GoGear because it should be detected. Right click that icon choose Format, quick compression. Now choose your GoGear Device Manager and Repair it. Unplug and it should be working again.

Just a note, I had all the GoGear programs uninstalled except the PC software from the Philips site which I downloaded but it should work even if you have everything installed. If not download their pc software for your GoGear, format, then install the Device/Firmware Manager and repair. I know this should work because hers was frozen on the logo for days.

Haha Big D - me too =P

But i dont know why everyone is using Juke Box to upload mp3's. Here's food for thought, when i bought mine it came with Drivers(that i didnt need) and a installation disc that DIDNT work. It kept telling me some bullshit about my Windows Media Player wasnt updated or something. When i clearly have Windows Media 11. Anywho, i just stared at the box for about 5 mins and relised that the software being used to put music on the machine was indeed Windows Media Player. So all i did was plug the USB in my computer and the mp3 player, clicked on "Sync" and it recognised it. People you have to realise that Philips made this to work with Windows Media Player. It has most options you'll need. I still havnt figured out how to upload pictures to the SOB. :D

I need some help. My GoGear is almost a year old, but it didnt come with the musicmatch program, only a Wal-Mart program for WMP which I never used. I have about 300+ songs on it and I think that it might have too many. I can't do anything however because everytime I try to turn it on, it freezes at the "Phillips" screen.

Ive tried soft reset and everything, but it always goes to that screen even when charging (and it never goes to that screen during charging). I need some serious help because I dont really want to get another and put all of those songs back on it. Please help.

Philips HDD065/05 Mp3 player.

Fault:- Recognised as "Philips Nike" by Music match JukeBox/Songs transferred but do not show up on the MP3 Player.

Fix:-
1. Start Music Match Jukebox.
2. Select portable device.
3. Wait for Sync etc.
4. Select Tools.
5. Select Settings.
6. General Tab - Select Device - Philips Nike or PhilipsGoGear.
7. Select PhilipsGoGear.
8. Message Box "The currant Portable Device has been changed. Do you want to save this change?" Select Yes.
9. OK. Portable Device Manager should now read PhilipsGogear.

Hope this works for some.

I am wanting to know is there anyway that I can get into the GoGear 2GB and find the serial number I know I can get the model number on it in the menu. Is there a away that you can go in to the memory after something has been deleted off and see what it was. Talked with the people from the factory and he said you could do that but he couldnt remember how to it and I was wondering if anyone on here knew how to do this.

Thanks For Your Time

I have a Philips GoGear HDD070/17 and it was having several problems. It would freeze in the middle of playing a song, or it would skip to a different song in the middle of playing a song, then skip back again.

To shut down when it freezes or locks up:
When it froze, the only way I could shut it down was to press the up arrow button and the vol + button at the same time and hold them both until it shut down. I decided it needed to be formatted and wiped clean.

To format:
I connected it to my Windows XP computer, and Windows recognized it as a "Removable Disk." I formatted it making sure to choose "FAT32" as the file system.

I ran the Philips DMM (Digital Media Manager) software that came with my GoGear so I could put music on my player, but the DMM software didn't recognize the device.

I tried Musicmatch jukebox, and it didn't recognize the device either.


Here's how to fix that problem (well, it's how I fixed it for my GoGear HDD070):

Go to www.philips.com/support

In search box at upper right I typed HDD070 (my model number).

Only one item was in the search results and it was:

Contact & Support - HDD070/05
Philips Micro jukebox HDD070 2GB*
Consumer Products, HTML, English - Jun 1, 2008

Click on "Contact & Support - HDD070/05" and it takes you to the HDD070 page.

Click on "Software & drivers" at the left of the screen

Download the "Firmware Upgrade - Software English (UK), Application (9.17 MB) Version: V.5.2"
Save this file to your hard drive. Do not open it at this time.
This is the Philips GoGear HDD Device Manager program and the file name is "hdd070_05_fus_eng.exe"

Download the "Musicmatch Jukebox Software English (UK), Application (33.35 MB) Version: V.9.5092"
Again, save this file to your hard drive. Do not open it at this time.
This is the Musicmatch Jukebox 9 program and the file name is "hdd070_05_mjs_eng.exe"

Run the Philips GoGear HDD Device Manager file you downloaded (hdd070_05_fus_eng.exe) so it can install on your computer. After it installs start the program by going to Start > All Programs > Philips GoGear HDD > Philips GoGear HDD. This starts the Device Manager. I did both "Upgrade" and "Restore". Now your GoGear has the latest version of the firmware.

Now run the Musicmatch Jukebox 9 file you downloaded (hdd070_05_mjs_eng.exe) so it can install on your computer. After it installs start the program by going to Start > All Programs > Musicmatch > Musicmatch Jukebox. Make sure your GoGear is connected to your computer, then Click on "Portable Device" on the left side of the Musicmatch Jukebox screen. After a few moments it should recognize your device and bring up another window titled "Portable Device Manager".

If your GoGear is recognized as "Philips Nike", then follow the instructions provided by Steven Hunter (thanks Steven!). His post is earlier in this string of posts, but I've copied it for you here:

His instructions provided the final step to allow me to successfully transfer music to my GoGear HDD070.

Hopefully the process will be similar for other models.

Erm..I know it's different of all the other questions, but if you open videos, and there is a video called 'Snow'
The first song is great, a kind of HipHop and R&B style..I tried to listen to the music and google the sentences to get the title and download the song..But I just can't get the name of the song...Does anybody knows what's the song's called?

Alright, so my Gogear 2gb worked totally fine for a year and one week (exactly!) today it decided to get to the GoGear loading page and shutdown. So after reading these comments about "reformatting" i decided to plug it in, go to my computer so i can see the device's options. There was an option to "format" so i tried that and even tho it erased all the music/videos/pics ect, it now turns on. Now if your computer doesnt even recognize the device then yeah id say youre outta luck i hope my story helped =)

Miguel,
I am in the MP3 business. Is it possible that you need to charge the batterey? Some players must be in the on position to recharge. If that does not work, take it back. It is dead.
Good luck,
Db

I found this on page 55 of my owner's manual.
My GoGear MP3 Player was frozen, wasn't being
recognized by my computer and this worked for me.

Follow these steps exactly:

1 Reset your player first by inserting a pin or sharp
object into the reset hole at the back of the player.
2 Launch Philips Device Manager from Start > Programs >
Philips Device Manager. Select the Repair Tab.
3 While pressing the Vol + on your device, connect it
to the PC.
4 Confirm Yes when you see the screen , you can release
the Vol + now.
5 Choose your device name (SA60xx) in the box.
6 After the repair completes , click OK and continue using
your player as usual.

Hello, i am having a strange problem and was hoping you could help me solve it. I cant download music onto my MP3 player for some reason. Windows Media Player works fine up until i connect my MP3 player, then a pop up comes and says windows media player has reached an error and has to close....So i thought it was the media player so i got the one called Winamp...but it does the same exact thing so its not the media player. Then i thought it was my mp3 player but thats not it either, cause when i plug my USB flash drive/memory stick whatever its called. It does the same pop up, which is weird because that memory stick has nothing to do with the media player. So i guess it has to be the computer but i just have no clue what is causing it. I even thought maybe it was the USB port that is messed up but i plugged it into the back and once again same thing happens. Its pretty much like ANYTHING plugged into ANY usb port, has some kind of problem with ANY of the media players. For some reason they dont get along...i dont get it.
