Question about Philips GOGEAR SA6045 MP3 Player
When I try to put music from my computer onto my mp3 player the mp3 player says file system error and it will not play any music, please help as i have spent 3 days trying to put music on it for my 12 year old daughter
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If the repair utility endlessly indicates it is checking for updates, you are likely using an out-of-date version of Songbird - probably the one that came with your GoGear.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.

Maybe use cd ex and try a different bit rate ? What bit rates does the player support and is it mp3 or mp3 pro that the files are in ?
Also if it still does not work I would get a refund and get an ipod and use itunes. A lot easier and all your music, video needs at your finger tips :)
