The freezing at 87% suggests hardware malfunction, but you can try all of the "soft" fixes to be sure -
Triple Reset for GoGear:
Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.
After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player.
Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

SOURCE: frozen or dead
Thanks for the suggestion! I had the same problem and the reset button on the side (same side as power button) turned it off, I pushed the button and it came right back on, said it was rebuilding the library, and returned to normal.

Download, and install the firmware. It should work after that. It might of formatted the storage partition of the device, but you can resync it after you update the firmware on the device. You can get the firmware here: Gigabeat S Firmware.

SOURCE: I bought Transcend MP860 last
This is a common problem with these players (first link). My MP860 failed in this way (insufficient voltage etc message)
I made a rig with laboratory PSU (several amp output) connected to USB socket and I know that that the problem has nothing to do with voltage (voltage was stable 5V - tested also higher up to 5.5V)
For a while a trick with holding the volume up button worked for me. (see second link) But once I discharged the battery to a too low level and the trick did not work anymore.
My conclusion is that that message indicates Li-ion battery degradation and charger circuit/FW declines to charge it showing misleading message. (battery made by Foxlink)
I tore my the player open and rigged charge circuit and get it working again. Photo: http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5063/5683361395_d59bef8142_b.jpg
Few suggestions: 1. Never allow the battery to be fully discharged. Charge at any opportunity you have. 2. Once you get the Insufficient input voltage message try trick with holding volume adjustment. 3. If 1., 2. failed rip it open and make charging circuit or replace battery. 4. Do not buy Transcend MP3 players. (?)
