I just purchased the Philips GoGear Aria (16 gb) and updated its firmware. I also installed all available important and optional windows updates for vista.
The first problem I have is that whenever my aria is in MTP mode, I never see it listed in the "Safely Remove Hardware" window. However, if I put my aria in MSC mode then it shows up in the "Safely Remove Hardware" window and I am able to safely remove it. Is there a way I could "safely remove" my aria when it's in MTP mode? I can't change the connection mode while the aria is connected to my computer, otherwise I would try to switch the aria to MSC mode and then attempt to safely remove it. The reason why I need to use it in MTP mode is because I don't have any other way to make playlists (my aria won't sync, so I have to make my playlists manually).
