Go to the support site:
http://www.support.philips.com/support/catalog_selector.jsp?COOKIE=off
Select and enter your model in the right upper corner in the 'Search' bar:
just start typing SA.... and then select from the list that shows up.


e.g. support site for SA6045/02:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA6045/02&slg=en&scy=GB

Select the link for 'FILE SYSTEM ERROR' under Latest updates:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/faqview.pl?ctn=SA6045%2F02&dct=QAC&new_tmpl=1&refdisplay=PAV_GENERAL_FILESYSTEMERROR&refnr=0074393&slg=ENG

1. Backup your content from the player to the computer.
2. Perform a format as told in the link.
3. When format has completed you can put back your files to the player.

For sure, the file system is corrupted and is the cause of your woes. In case you do not get anywhere with the support instructions, another 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If the repair utility endlessly indicates it is checking for updates, you are likely using an out-of-date version of Songbird - probably the one that came with your GoGear.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.

Gigaware mp3 and when i turn it on, it says File System Error!!!


Get a small pin and insert it in the reset hole on the side or bottom of the device. It will format the disk, erase it and reset it to factory settings. You lose everything, but can reinstall it. First open up the drive and copy all songs to your disk or a flash drive, perform reset option then reinstall all music over.

File system err on spi digital audio player


Click menu and scroll to the setup screen and hit reset.
then go back to the music it will say file error then use the right button to browse to next song and you will see your songs. If however in the music you don't see any songs (number 1of 64 or whatever) then you have to reload your songs.

Next, if that does not work. Go to setup select format complete, (note this will reformat the player) then go to your computer (in explorer) and copy the music right to the music folder (only songs don't copy folders into the music folder on the device.)

then go back to setup, select reset and go back to music menu. You may still have a file error just hit the next button and there are your songs.

Nextar MA933A MP3 player File System error


download the disc that came with it no matter what windows/mac/lenux version you have.
drag it all out to your desktop.
look through the folders for a program with a rocket ship icon.
open it.
plug your mp3 player into the computer.
select "firmware upgrade" on the computer.
select the newest upgrade.
open it.
then click "upgrade firmware" and it'll be fixed for the system error, but you'll have to re-download the music.
