    When I turn it on, it does the color display and stays stuck at the RCA screen, and when I plug it in to my usb port, The mp3 player screen says READY. It installed the software, it said that it's ready to use but when I click on the Removable disk Icon, it says 'E:/ Is not accessible. The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.' Other things work in the E drive fine.

I had the same problem with my sony walkman. after a while could not delete any file or copy any file to my mp3 although it was playing the songs which were already there- it used to say i/o device error
after stuggling to find a solution on the internet for a while, i went thro sony website for support.
it asks your model number - then tells you to update firmware and device driver- which is free
once i did it
i could copy files and delete. so i thought i will put this on the net to help whoever has similar problems. good luck

Mp3 player reporting i/o problem

The Input/Output or I/O error is usually a pretty bad error on any Disk or Flash drive! It looks that this I/O error might have corrupted your media player drive directory (commonly know as FAT table).
Confirm the problem by trying to plug your device in a different USB port on your PC/Laptop: if you are still getting the I/O error, you can try to repair your player drive by using Open Windows Explorer -> Properties -> Tools -> Error-Checking facilities.
If Error-Checking cannot repair your drive, then you will unfortunately have to re-FORMAT your device Flash drive and loose everything on that drive (hope you have a good backup on your PC/Laptop)!

My computer gives me an error message when i attach my MP3.

Go to Philips website
Get the updated Philips Device Manager for your model (rather than the one that came with the CD)
Once you have installed the updated Philips Device Manager, open it, and click on the Update button - it will update your player's firmware, which should resolve your issue.

If you are, instead, getting a message that says "File System Error" - return your mp3 player to the store or call Philips and see if you can get an in-warranty replacement.
