The "Firmware Upgrading" should only show for about 60 seconds.

You could try removing the battery and restarting.

If this doesn't work try repairing again.

    Further to my previous post, try formatting in Windows Explorer. When the player re-starts it will show an error. Normally in this case the player will allow a repair.

Connect to PC and use device manager to repair


If you have a Philips HDD Series, it will not work with Windows Vista or Windows Media Player 11 except for briefly, then the player will stop working one day. Your only hope is to use it with Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10 - it is, basically, an obsolete player at this point in time.

The Philips Device Manager has a strange feature - it only properly updates your device if you have the newest version of the Device Manager:
Download the newest version of the Philips Device Manager:
www.usasupport.philips.com - change your country/language as needed
Enter in your exact model #
Click on the link for your exact model #
Click on the Software & Drivers section
Click on "Firmware Upgrade Software"
Install the new Device Manager
Open and run the "Update" tab

I would recommend you to format..There are two ways you can format the player..
1) using windows media player
2) the player itself..

To format the device using windows media player..
Assuming that you are running windows XP/WMP11
Open your windows media player
Click on your sync tab
your device should be listed on the right side...
then right click on it and hit format...
Once format completed unplug the player and plug it back in..

To format the player using the player itself

To format the player using the device itself..
go under Menu, then click on setting, then there should be a format option if there isnt a format option under setting you will need to click under system info and look for format.. When the format is finished, the player will turn off

Then you will need to get a firmware upgrade for the device..to get a firmare upgrade follow the link below...
