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If the repair utility endlessly indicates it is checking for updates, you are likely using an out-of-date version of Songbird - probably the one that came with your GoGear.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.

Run a Repair using the Philips Device Manager.
Actually, I'm not sure if I understand what you are asking - if you are getting a format error on the songs that you have loaded onto the player, then the songs are in the wrong format.
Without getting into long, boring explanations, if you download only files that are in true Mp3 format, then you won't have any format errors. WMA files are very iffy with most mp3 players. iTunes files are completely incompatible with this player.

Format in which videos are played in philips go gear is played


The format is different for each GoGear, but what you have to do is you MUST use the Philips/Arcosft Media Converter to convert the videos. It is available for free from Philips website, but you have to make sure that you get the converter that is specific for your EXACT model # of GoGear.

I can not download my songs


The GoGear SA 6045 is not compatible with iTunes. As iTunes moves toward DRM-free music, there are a few GoGear models that will work with it, but the SA6045 is not one of them. iTunes format is also known as AAC format. There are no GoGear's that are compatible with DRM-protected AAC format, but a few are compatible with DRM-free AAC's. Sorry.

You will have to find songs that are in Mp3 format from a different music service (or from CD).

"File Format Not Supported" - SA6045/37
The file format not supported message means that the type of file you are trying to load into the GoGear is not compatible with the GoGear. There are no GoGear's that are compatible with iTunes. As far as WMA files are concerned, the GoGear's vary wildly. If the WMA file has a bit rate higher than 192 kbps (which is quite common nowadays), it will not work. If you actually have an SA6045, then make sure the license on the WMA file has "transfer rights," or that the license has not expired. You can check this by right-clicking on the song, selecting Properties, and looking at the tab that says "license" or "digital rights management."

If you find that you are using an incompatible format, convert the songs to mp3 format. If the songs came from CD, use Windows Media Player to re-rip the songs in Mp3 format. You can do this in Windows Media Player 11 by highlighting the "Rip" tab, pulling down the drop down-menu by clicking on the little tiny arrow that appears underneath the word "rip," and selecting "format", and then "mp3".

Good luck!

You must use the Media Convertor software that came with the GoGear installation CD to convert all video files into a format that the GoGear recognizes. If you lost the CD or manual, go to the Philips website - they have both available for download. Under software and drivers, select "Media converter Software"; under documentation, click "User's Manauls"
