EMERSON MP3 MUSIC PLAYER, EMP312-1, "FILE SYSTEM" ERROR

At first the device worked perfectly. When I tried to delete the existing music and load different songs using the "my computer" function, I apparently erased the driver and all of it's files. I, now, realize I should have simply reformatted it. This was the first time I tried to change songs on the device and I didn't know I was deleting anything unretrievable. The Windows XP operating system loaded a default MTP driver when prompted but Windows Media Player 11 will not detect the mp3 player, even though is shows up as "audio device" on the "my computer" window. Is there some kind of a software download to replace the missing files. I feel that this could have happened to anybody.

    I pruchased this MP3 player, loaded some songs and got the message that it was an unkown file, so I deleted them and now when I turn it on, all I get is File System. I have called the customer service # 1-877-768-8483 three times, and I am told the MPS customer service is very busy handling custoemr calls and that I would have to call back another time. Now the number is striaght busy. It seems as though many people are havign an issues with this product.

  • phrak1618 Dec 24, 2008

    Yeah! Same thing. Brand new out of the package and my comp can't find a driver for it. It'll act like it wants to work and then it says it can't find the specified info. I'm assuming the software is on it but it's corrupted. I just opened it! And I guess we're not alone. Man, so much for a cheap X-mas present...

Ok here we go i dunno how i figured this out lol but it took a while. okay so ur gonna go to control panel, device manager, and uninstall the driver for mp3 player. then disconnect mp3 player and reconnect it to reinstall mp3 player. it will recognize it as emerson mp3. right click on it (im running xp) go to properties, click on the tools tab and click on check now on the error checking and select both options of automatic fix file system errors and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors. then hit start and it will start the process of fixing the file error. it takes a couple minutes and when its done disconnect the mp3 player n turn it on and voila!!! it works again. if u need more help u can e-mail me at davidh9732@hotmail.com. hope this helps yall so u dont throw them away

Try going to Control Panel, System, Hardware, Devices, click on it and update the driver to the MTP device. Should see Emerson MP3 in My Computer. Or uninstall it and reinstall it CHOOSING the device. My XP system kept pointing to my printer (usb) driver. Worked for me with this EMP312-1, cost $12 at Dollar General. Good Luck.

I had similar problem.
Opened package, downloaded songs to only file on mp3.
Seems driver did not load properly.
Would not show what directions indicated.
Would not play songs and could not find songs on mp3 player. Opened mp3 and made new file.
Made music file and copied songs to new file labled music.
Now plays music on mp3!! Hope this helps someone. I still don't think that it works properly,but at least it plays the music.

I did something a little different, but i got the idea from BOOg1. Insted of uninstalling it, just go to update the driver and it will take a few seconds and the mp3 player will work.

I fixed it by uninstalling Media Player 11 from add/remove programs which rolled it back to Media Player 10. Reformatted the device for good measure. Works as advertised now.

Didn't get any instructions. i need a manual


This device should appear as a USB mass storage device when you plug it into a computer (windows, mac or linux should work).

Once it's visible, simply drag (or otherwise copy) your music into it. Then unmount it (eg. "remove safely" on Windows). Removing files is basically the same process: just delete the tracks you see on it as required.

When it has music loaded into it, set the switch on the side to the "on" position. It should start playing immediately. The main button panel should be self-explanatory: there's a play button in the middle, skip forward and back on either side, and volume up/down above and below. There's no way to mess it up, so just play with it until you get the hang of it.

Tracks are played in the order in which they were loaded onto the device, unless you use a utility to sort them. Unlike the iPod Shuffle (which this appears to be a clone of) this device does NOT play in random order. Your friendly neighbourhood hacker will be able to use a utility (such as "fatsort") to reorganize the playing order.

This device sometimes loses track of where it's supposed to be, and just starts at the first track again. Annoying, but what do you expect for cheap?

My emerson mp3 will not save for example when i try to delete songs i delete them but when i take thhe mp3 out of the computer the songs are still there and i cant put new songs on it either . when i turn...


What you probably need is defraging of your mp3. Not sure how Emerson works, but when it is USB connected, try this:
Open My Computer, select it's name (Emerson?), right click, select 'Properties', then 'Tools', run the 'error check' and the 'defrag'. If you can't find the defrag that way, put out the question of how to defrag your model.

My coby 610-2g mp3 player keeps saying file system error (file sys err) I formated it but it still says the same thing... Somebody please give me a solution...


I had the exact same problem. I tried formating and fiddling around with everything I could think of, but to no avail. But the answer to fixing the problem is relatively simple. I just went to the cobyusa website into the support section, chose the device, and used the firmware download. It wipes your player clean but fixes the file system error. hope it works for you as well.

Computer won't convert music on flash drive


Try to put the files directly in the Music folder inside My Computer>Player device, from the flash drive, just to be safe make sure they are in mp3 or wma file format also.
