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If the repair utility endlessly indicates it is checking for updates, you are likely using an out-of-date version of Songbird - probably the one that came with your GoGear.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

As the message indicate its a problem with the file systemof your player. The simplest way to get rid of this message is to format the player. I would recommend using the FAT32 file system as it is more stable compared to the FAT16 file system.

My mp3 player turns on and read file system error. Can I reset or fix the problem


System files might got corrupted. The best way for you to do is to reformat the MP3 Player. Hook it up on your computer's usb port. Right click your windows START button and choose Explore. It will open the windows explorer. Look for the drive letter associated with your MP3 player, right click on it and choose Format. Do a quick format and after that, you should be good.

Hope this helps you.
