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If the repair utility endlessly indicates it is checking for updates, you are likely using an out-of-date version of Songbird - probably the one that came with your GoGear.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

IBM Travelstar usb 2.0 - when connected to pc get error msg - problem with drive need to scan - WILL scanning ERASE FILES THAT ARE STORED ON THE usb drive


the scan is just a program reading the files and folders either in the computer or storage device
normally it is done by the security program ( windows fire wall) or what ever program you have installed
it reports on any problems found and waits for your decision
if you run a system check, that is different as it will rectify any program faults as it goes not files or folders
it is always advisable to scan usb sticks when installing as that is a favourite way that hackers get into a computer
although the usb stick may be in your control all the time , downloads from your own computer can transfer a problem via usb stick
As for your concern---scanning will not change any files or folders but will report on any faults to you

Sony PS3 Hard Drive Corrupted or Asking for Restore


A Hard Drive error can be a common problem on the PS3 and this tip will outline how you can troubleshoot and hopefully resolve a hard drive problem. If your PS3 is showing signs that the hard drive is corrupted or is displaying a message asking you to restore the hard drive follow these steps carefully and you may well avoid an expensive repair or having to consign your hard drive to the bin.

Please note: Steps 8 and 9 involve erasing data from your Hard Drive. Therefore if at all possible please try to back up your data before commencing this procedure. You can do this through 'System Settings - Backup Utility' Follow the instructions given in this menu to back up information to an external storage device such as a USB Pen.

To begin the process of troubleshooting and resolving your Hard Drive error you must first put the unit into Safe Mode. Follow these steps carefully;

1) Turn off the PS3 by holding the power button on the front of the unit till it turns red.

2) Hold the power button until you hear the unit beep three times. This will take 15 to 20 seconds.

3) The unit will power off on the third beep and power light will turn red again.

4) Touch and hold the power button again as in step 2. The unit will beep three times except this time the third beep will sound like a quick double beep. As soon as you hear this release the power button.

5) You will see a message onscreen telling you to "Connect a controller using USB and then press the PS button".

6) Do as the message says i.e. connect the controller and press the PS button - you are now in Safe Mode.

7) Restore File System. From this point select "Restore File System" on the menu. The PS3 will attempt to repair damaged files on the hard drive. If this does not work move to step 8.

8) Rebuild Database. Enter Safe mode again as outlined and this time select "Rebuild Database". Be aware this mode will erase certain information from your hard drive which is not recoverable such as photo and message information. If this fails move to step 9.

9) Restore PS3 System. Again enter Safe Mode and select "Restore PS3 System". This will restore all defaults and completely formats the drive. Be aware this mode will erase all information from the hard drive.

If everyone of these steps fail and the PS3 is still showing symptoms of hard drive error you can be certain that the hard drive has failed and it will need to be replaced. However in a majority of cases these steps will resolve the issue.

My sansa e280 shows error!!!!help here


Go to Device Manager, and click on each usb port indivdually, and then click on update drivers.

If that fails:
Go ahead and do this, in case the DB is corrupted:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
