Why aren't APE files played on my Philips GoGear?

Published on 2017-08-24

The problem may be caused by the APE files. This players support APE files but not all compression levels. To resolve this problem, we recommend: * If your APE file is from somewhere on Internet, try to download it from another place. * If your APE file is converted from your CD, try to set the compression level to either Fast or Normal in the converting software before file conversion.
