Re: File Sytem Corrupted!

The dreaded "File System Corrupted" error is one that comes time and time again. Did you drop the player or hit it by accident? If so, then the pin connecting the battery to the micro hard drive has probably been disconnected. You can removed the back of the player with a screwdriver, but you risk tearing off the S/N sticker. If you decided to do it anyway, remove the back of the player and then simply fit the multi-pin connector back into the hard drive. Replace the back and screw it in, and then turn it on to see if it works. I did this with my old RD2762A, and it worked like a charm. Hope this helps!

My transcend Ipod is not getting detected in the computer

Hi, when an pm3player does not detect on your PC, usually when Drivers that corrupted..
How to rectify the problem:

Connect the mp3 player to the PC
The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery charging or full.

- If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is readily available. Ensure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub.

- If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in as a storage device in an explorer window, then the screen is just not working.

If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.

Check under Device Manager

1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage.

2. Click Device Manager on the left pane.

NOTE: MP3 Players can connect to your computer in MSC or MTP mode. Exceptions are mp3 player Connect and mp3 player Express which only use MTP mode. MTP mode is the recommended and default method for mp3 Players when used with Windows OS.

The mp3 player will show up on Device Manager's right pane as:
1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC)
2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode)

If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers.

Refresh the drivers

1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall.

2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.

NOTE: If a device with yellow exclamation point (!) continually appears and disappears, then the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.

Hope it helped.

Good luck to you.

Hi, my mp3 player is not turning on. when i try to open it, the screen shows file system error

if your PC can show the removable disk drive you should format it. In this case all the folders and media files will be erased on your player.
If the PC can not see the player you could try to make firmware upgrade.
I think, this link will help you:

Error message File System Error

Whenever I go to turn on my Philips Gogear audio video mp3 player, it shows the welcome screen but it doesn't go to the GoGear or the updating screens. Also, whenever I plug it into my computer through the USB cord, the charging screen doesn't show and it does not show that it is connected on 'My Computer'

When i hook my player up to the computer it say file system error

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:
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.

Hi! When you repaired your mp3 player you formatted it with ntfs file system but your player needs fat32 file system. Don't be upset just plug in your mp3 player again with your PC and reformat it by changing the file system to FAT 32. Hope this helps.
