My daughter was listening to this mp3 player and then all of sudden it gave her an error :NAND File system Fail Format File System!

I agree with Norwood that the flash memory has likely gone bad. However, you may want to attempt the Philips repair utility for giving up on the device.
The repair utility is part of 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If the repair utility endlessly indicates it is checking for updates, you are likely using an out-of-date version of Songbird - probably the one that came with your GoGear.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.

NAND is a type of Flash Memory, most likely the internal memory. If it has failed then the mp3 player is dead. If the device is still on warranty, then you may be able to get the retailer to replace it.
Flash Memory is not 100% reliable. Like all storage mediums, it will wear out or deteriorate over time. But it will mean that you have lost everything on it. You have my deepest apologies, but this does happen, if infrequently.
