You can try running a Repair in the Philips Device Manager, but it will probably not work - get a replacement - either through the store or Philips. I can tell you exactly why the msg is coming up, but I've explained it so many times over the last year, i am tired of explaining so many times. just trust me. Run repair - when that fails - get it replaced.

For sure, the file system is corrupted and is the cause of your woes. The fix lies with the Philips Songbird software. If you do not have Songbird, download it for Windows or Mac here:http://www.usa.philips.com/c/mp3-media-player/22126/cat/en/#/difference/philipssongbird.

Once you have Songbird installed, launch it and select "Repair my Philips device" in the Tools menu. Select your device and follow the instructions specific to your device. For example, instructions for the GoGear Vibe are to disconnect the device, power it down completely, and hold the volume-up key during and after USB connection until the message window disappears.

If the repair utility endlessly indicates it is checking for updates, you are likely using an out-of-date version of Songbird - probably the one that came with your GoGear. If this describes your situation, launch Songbird and select "Check for updates" in the Help menu. This will at least get you upgraded to version 1.9 (currently), even though the latest version is 1.11 (currently).

Instructions that came with some older versions for connecting GoGear in repair mode were incomplete. They left out a crucial step of turning off the GoGear and waiting for it to power down completely before reconnecting in repair mode. Newer versions of Songbird include the ability to reformat the device, reset the device, and to get progress updates during synchronization.

If you've found this information helpful, please indicate as such.

Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is an incompatiblevideo file format, then you need to convert that video file to a format thatyour MP3 player uses.

When i turn my MP3/WMA player on it comes up with file system error then turns itself off


There may be damage either to the memory in the player or to its system files (firmware). Either way, send it back if it's under warranty.

28@my phillips mps player is saying file systems error when i turn it on


Sounds like the firmware has been corrupted or the system files have been deleted.

Philips MP3 players come with either Philips Device Manager or other recovery software.

This enables you to repair the player if the system files are deleted.

Check out your manual for more details, or post the model number for more specific help.
