    Angry GoGear Connect 3 Bricked

    Hi everyone,

    I having trouble with my GoGear Connect 3 16GB (SA3CNT16K/37). My sister just returned from USA travel. She asked to me for what i want from there. I wanted a GGC3. I recieved this yesterday (09/08/2012).

    When first time i power up the player is perfect! But i would to say Songbird is poor application (PC and on player both). I uptated my player's firmware after set-up this. Yesterday, I installed some applications, transfered some musics and I shutdowned the player.

    This morning i can't power-up my player. It's stucking while boot and resetting itself. Seeing Philips logo and screen is blinking (resetting). My PC doesn't recognise it.

    I pushed the reset button on the player for a while, work worked for me.

    I tried to repair with Songbird many times. It's so ridiculous;

    While internet connection is up on PC, Songbird recognising my player as a SA4...
    Then, I un-installed the Songbird and tried repair without connecting internet. But it's not worked too. It's failing...

    I took a look inside Songbird's folder and I found my SA3CNT firmware. But, I think this firmware for 8GB model.

    The path of the firmware I have found; " C:\Program Files\Philips\Philips Songbird Resources\Firmware\SA3CNT "

    I extracted the SA3CNT.zip then I found ucl.xml file.

    Code:
    <UCL>
      <CFG>
        <STATE name="BootStrap" dev="MX51" />
        <DEV name="MX51" vid="15A2" pid="0041"/>    
        <STATE name="Updater"   dev="Updater" />  
        <DEV name="Updater" vid="066F" pid="37FF" />
      </CFG>
    <!--
    *******************************************************************************
    **
    **							Philips GGC3 8G 
    **
    ***********************************************************************************
    -->
    <LIST name="Philips GGC3" desc="Choose SD as media for Android">   
    ......
      
      
    <!--
    *******************************************************************************
    **
    **							Philips GGC3 8G not format ecd
    **
    ***********************************************************************************
    -->
    <LIST name="GGC3 Not erase ecd" desc="Download firmware without erase ecd key">
    As you can see 8G writed in the file. Where can I get the true firmware for my device and how can I flash it? Or how do I get rid of it?


    My English isn't very well. I may have made ​​some mistakes. Any help would be welcome. Thanks.

    Hey again. Finally i recovered my player. I followed this steps (this might help others) ;

    1) I fully uninstalled Songbird software from my PC. (I using Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit)

    2) I cleared and deleted this directories;
    - C:\Users\thelastguardian\AppData\Local\Philips-Songbird
    - C:\Users\thelastguardian\AppData\Local\VirtualStor e\Program Files (x86)\Philips
    - C:\Users\thelastguardian\AppData\Roaming\Philips-Songbird
    - C:\Program Files (x86)\Philips

    also i cleared Temp directory in \AppData\Local\

    3) I removed old SA3CNT devices in device manager with using this; execute cmd (command prompt) with administrator privileges. Write and execute this commands: "set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1" and "start devmgmt.msc", then choose "Show hidden devices" in view menu. Remove all SA3CNT devices.

    4) Install Songbird and execute it as an administrator. Good luck.
