Target Base MP3 Player file system error

My Target Base MP3 player (model: HY816) is coming up with File System Error on its display, and my computer isnt recognising as being formatted, and wont format it. I know something as simple as reinstalling/updating the firmware would solve the problem, but Target was less than helpful in sending me in the wrong direction. Any ideas how to fix this?

    No it doesnt. Target was actually less than helpful when I called up to ask them about it. The File System Error thing is actually a new problem, and I dont actually use WMP though it

    actually, I found out the problem was the battery (for some odd reason...) but the thing is my computer wont recognise it as formatted, and wont format it (keeps saying it is something like 118gb when it is only 1gb, and says it cant be formatted). Any ideas?

Unfortunately, the firmware upgrades will not usually result in reloading all the system files from the original firmware. If your unit was displaying "File system error" right out of the box, then your player was probably previosuly-owned. If it is a new problem, a key system file could have been deleted manually or through a basic incompatibility with Windows Media Player 11. At any rate, you will need to go ahead and replace the player if the firmware upgrade does not resolve the issue. Does target even have a firmware update on their website?

    File System Errors on models that don't have a firmware reload available from the manufacturer are irreversible. No one has published the firmware code for that model (it's hard-to-obtain information, usually because it is considered a company secret or the programmer wrote it in Chinese). I'm afraid it's replacement time for that one.

My ipod is showing file system error


Hi


File system error can appear due to unplugging the MP3 player without disconnecting it. It may have happened due to formatting it with a different file format or due to memory issue with the player. Please reformat your MP3/MP4 player. Connect it to the computer, go to My computer-> right click on the mp3/mp4 player after it is displayed-> select format-> Format it as FAT32 File system. Formatting the MP3/MP4 player will delete all the songs/data from the player. So, backup all data before formatting it. Hope this helps...

What you need to do is back up all files on your mp3 player to your computer. Then go to the manufacture's website and download the latest firmware and reload it to your player. This will reformat your player so make sure you have backup all music, photos, videos, etc.. first

File system error


If you have a file system error, The only way to repair it is to format it. You need to have it connected to pc, then go to my computer, then to go F: drive or whatever drive the player is on, then you can access the files from there.

download the disc that came with it no matter what windows/mac/lenux version you have.
drag it all out to your desktop.
look through the folders for a program with a rocket ship icon.
open it.
plug your mp3 player into the computer.
select "firmware upgrade" on the computer.
select the newest upgrade.
open it.
then click "upgrade firmware" and it'll be fixed for the system error, but you'll have to re-download the music.

File System Error


Make sure the files you drag are mp3 and not audio files straight from a cd. If they are from a cd you need to put them in to the library of your music software first this should convert them to mp3 format
