I really liked this player :( i took your advice and when i opened it up it looks like the part with the pins wasn't attached to anything , was it supposed to be glued do you think or did it work with pressure from the battery holding it againt the other part. Any advice would be great :) ThaNKS!

Re: FILE SYSTEM ERROR MESSAGE
Glue = bad Put the player back together and do this:
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer
itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up
erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as
new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override
the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be
reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware
upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites. WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or
FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right
click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to
Windows-based computers. You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself: Connect your Mp3 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 "name of
Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select
"Format." - this should erase everything. -Tha Mp3 Doctor

Your hard disk on your media player is corrupted which also does happen on a normal PC/Laptop.
To fix it, use windows explorer -> right click on your mouse againt the media player drive -> select properties -> select 'Tools' tab -> select Error checking / Check now -> Tick on 'automatically fix file system errors and recommended also 'scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors' -> Start.
At this point, you may also need to restart your PC/LAPTOP and then be patient as 120GB is a fairly large drive to repair! Once the FAT has been repaired, depending on the corruptions, you may need to replace some songs, video, photos or other files.
ps. the other 'drastic' option is of course to reformat the whole Media driver drive !!!
Whenever this happens on a GPX mp3 player it means you have to take it back. The hardrive is either corrupt or the files you might have downloaded on it are not compatible with the player. Try "mp3' and "wma" files and see if it works. I had this same problem so I took mine back for another mp3 player. Hopefully you still have your recipt so you can take yours back. Sorry if this wasant really helpful to you. I hope you can get a refund.
It sounds like your databasse have been corrupted..what you will need to do is to format the device using your windows media player..once your format it transfer the songs back t your device..
that should solve the problem..
I hope that helps

I had the same problem and I tried many things to fix it. Mine started
working again when I took an old speaker and turned it face down, then
put the mp3 player face up on the magnet (face of MP3 away from
magnet). I checked back a few days later and it was working with all
(or maybe most I haven't really checked) of the files intact. I thought
it might wipe out all of my files but figured that if I could get it to
work again it would be worth it. This might be extreme but I tried
running it out of battery which didn't work and pushing different
buttons in different sequences which didn't work either. I tried
pressing buttons simultaneously and for extended periods looking for
some sort of reinitialization process but nothing worked....it just
kept coming up with the corrupted message. I think it got corrupted
when I removed it from my PC without doing the "SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE"
process on my PC. I won't be doing that again. I am really glad I
didn't throw the thing away!
The dreaded "File System Corrupted" error is one that comes time and time again. Did you drop the player or hit it by accident?
If so, then the pin connecting the battery to the micro hard drive has probably been disconnected.
You can removed the back of the player with a screwdriver, but you risk tearing off the S/N sticker.
If you decided to do it anyway, remove the back of the player and then simply fit the multi-pin connector back into the hard drive. Replace the back and screw it in, and then turn it on to see if it works.
I did this with my old RD2762A, and it worked like a charm.
Hope this helps!
