Emerson MP3 player-like BAR901

My emerson mp3 player keeps saying "File System". It started doing this when the battery about died and I turned it off and changed it. I have songs on it but it says 00/00. I can't find the manule here at home OR online. It looks kind of like the BAR901, just not pink, it's black and silver and takes "AAA" batteries. Can anyone help me?!?

    It did it again! If I put in the old battery (thats almost dead), it will show the songs and everything but once I put in a brand battery it says "File System".

It's the battery, I'm not sure why but it will only work with certain battery types. After putting a rechargeable Energizer 900mAh battery in, it works just fine! This is so wrong...

If you own the data cable for the device you may not need the software. All mp3 players may act as file sharing devices. The software included with these devices is usually more for convenience and not really needed. Plug your data cable in to your computer and wait for it to recognize your device. Open My Computer and near the C:\ drive you'll see a new disk appear. Most likely it will be named E:\ or F:\ . Double click to open it. This will tell you if there is any files left on the device. I'm not familiar with that brand, make or model but this is pretty much industry standard. If for some reason the device moved your mp3 files outside of the typical music folder simply drag them back in. :) Then it will be able to read the files correctly again. :)

Good luck!

I don,t know how to put music on my mp3 player

Windows Media Player has the Sync tab. I believe that WMP 9 does. But not 10. Either way, you can just open up the player in the My Computer folder. Then copy and paste any music files you have.

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 hope this helps yall so u dont throw them away
