Philips makes a line of portable music players under the name GoGear. These devices read MP3 music files that you can copy from your personal computer. When there is an error with your GoGear device, you might need to enter the recovery mode to fix it. It might take a few attempts to get the GoGear to enter recovery mode and fixing the device can cause you to lose your saved music.
