To charge your GoGear mp3 player without your computer, you will need a universal USB charger as well as a mini-USB cable (which connects to the mp3 player and to the USB charger). These can be purchased at the Philips Online Store:

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. From the description you have given above, you have no space to build a database of media player files and you want to know how to free up space by connecting to a PC? I think I can provide assistance to you for that. Your device is telling you what you need to do, which is free up space on your MP3 player by removing media files on your 8GB hard drive. 100 megabytes of files need to be removed in order to do this. By going into songbird and removing the files, the computer will remove the file from the MP3 player, but by default, will not delete the file itself; as the file will be on Philips Songbird on your PC's hard drive. To remove media files on your GoGear Ariza:

1. Use the USB cable that was supplied with your MP3 player to connect your device to your PC.

2. Open Philips Songbird on your PC.

3. Select a media file from your music, video or downloads library that you want to remove and right click it.

4. Click 'Remove' and confirm the command.

Repeat steps 3 & 4 as many times as you need to until you have deleted 100MB of media files. If songbird displays the file size, use that to help you decide which ones are taking up the most space, or as you are getting ready to remove a file, use the file sizes and add them together (mathematically). If you don't know, mb stands for megabyte, and a megabyte is 1,000,000 bytes. Once the total is 100,000,000 or more, you can stop removing files if you want. I hope this helps!

My ENT doctor said no more ear buds, no more ear phone so I Amazon purchase another GOGEAR Ariaz because they have an external speaker, or so I thought.

I tried all to get the speaker ARIAZ 16 gig to work. Nothing. Speaker does not work. The instruction manual that comes right on my 16 gig GoGear Ariaz is for titled GoGear AZURE!

AZURE! Where did that come from? The Azure manual does not show a speaker. Go figure. I do not think my Ariaz-Azure has a speaker. It does have Bluetooth that works for me OK with a Philips external Blue Tooth Speaker. No ENT correct external speaker on the player itself? Or am I wrong.

The tiny, tiny micro writing label on my "GOGEAR Ariaz" is a label for "SA5AZU16KF/37. Even though the Logo on the case of the GoGear is imprinted ARIAZ!

If I am wrong and my Philips Azure???-Ariaz has a speaker I would be pleased to know how to make the speaker work.

PS, I do own a GoGear ARIAZ 8G, and it does have a speaker that works for me.

If you delete files on a MAC they are still there. Go to Options or Utilities folder (depending on which OS is running). Use the clean utility to clear the dead files.

I have had this happen a few times. Try putting a pin in the reset hole. This worked every time for me, plus I didn't lose any data from it, which I thought I would.
