Re: philips gogear 2 gig memory corruption
After it says memory corupt it should have a self repair utility on screen i know mine does and i just recently had to use it just hit the over button and it will repair itself but also it will erase all the music and pics on it
Go to the philips website and install the device manager. Reset your mp3 player on back with pin. Press and hold vol+ button on side while you plug it in on your computer. Go to device manager and repair.
It took me hours tonight to figure this out. This is a piece of **** mp3 player! It hasn't worked since 2 months after buying. Now it is like new. I would never buy another one!!
If it is showing this as you are starting up the player then you should probably get to a computer with that phillips device manager and see if you can 'restore' the files on it with that. Other than that the only thing I can think of is to connect it to a comp, go into the files of it from my computer, make sure you have 'view hidden files' on, and delete all files on the darned thing.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

1)Perform a system reset, which won't erase your files, to attempt to correct playback. Locate a thin object, such as pen tip or unfolded paper clip and insert it into the small reset hole on the bottom of your GoGear. Hold the thin object in place until you see the unit shut down completely. Your system has been reset. Power the device back on to see if the corrupted files have been corrected. If the reset failed to correct the issue, perform a file recovery on your GoGear. 2)Initiate a file recovery by first connecting your GoGear to your computer. From your computer's "Start" menu, choose "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Area Device Manager" and "Philips Device Manager." The Philips Device Manager software will be activated. Inspect your GoGear to confirm that it is turned off. Plug the small end of the supplied USB cord into the bottom of your GoGear while holding down the "Volume Up." Insert the larger end into a free USB port on your computer. Hold the key as the "Philips Device Manager" reads your GoGear and activates recovery mode. Click "Repair" and follow the onscreen prompts as given by the "Philips Device Manager" to complete the process of memory recovery. Disconnect your GoGear from your computer properly after the process is complete and restart your MP3 player. 3)Reload and replace the files onto your GoGear by first connecting your GoGear to your computer. Plug the supplied USB cord's small end into the bottom of your GoGear and the large end into your comptuer's USB port. Initiate Windows Media Player by clicking on its icon if it doesn't start upon connection with your GoGear. In the left pane of the WMP, click "Philips GoGear Aria." Click the arrow on the top left edge of the WMP window, followed by "Music." Highlight all files, and click "Delete." Click the "Sync" tab on WMP, and drag and drop the music files you would like to replace and reload into the "Sync List" panel. Click "Start Sync." The files will be freshly loaded onto your GoGear. 4)Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer to avoid memory corruption by first closing all applications in use by the GoGear (WMP). Click the USB device icon in your system's tray (located on the bottom right corner of your screen). Follow the prompts in order to safely remove your GoGear from your computer. When your computer tells you it's safe to remove your GoGear, unplug the USB cord from your GoGear.
ok what you need to do is repair the firmware. The file system error has nothing to do with a virus. It means the firmware has become unstable or corrupted through any series of events.
by following this link http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA6045/37&scy=us&slg=en
you can download the software/firmware needed to reflash the device and this should solve all of your problems with the file system error. Ensure that it is the correct model number and download the files and flash the device by following the instructions on phillips website.

i think the flash memory is defective. if you have still warranty on your device bring it to your dealer. if not, you could try to format the players memory. go to my computer, right click on the device and use the option format. data format should be fat32. you do this on your own risk.
You have to do the "update" in the Philips Device Manager (make sure you are connected to the internet when you do) to repair the corruption:
Mode for Philips' GoGear Open
the Philips Device Manager (Start à
All Programs à Philips Digital
Audio Player à SAXXX à Philips Device Manager) and
click on the “Repair” tab.Then click on
the “Repair” button to start the repair process.Most of the time, when your player is in that
state, the Device Manager will not recognize that your GoGear is plugged
in.If this is the case: Disconnect the
player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the
volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while
holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds
until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your
device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this
procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will
have to be reloaded.
GoGear Firmware Upgrade You
need to get the latest firmware upgrade from the Philips website: 1.
Go to www.philips.com/support 2.
Enter your country/language 3.
Enter your model # SA6045 or whatever 4.
Click on the link for your exact model # (the one w/o the "B" in it) 5.
Click on "Software & Drivers" 6.
Download the updated "Device/Firmware Manager" 7.
Once installed, open the Philips Device Manager 8.
Click on the "Update" tab, then the "Update" button (with
your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course) 9.
Your Mp3 players firmware will update automatically If
you do not have the latest version of the Philips Device Manager installed (the
latest is the version from the Philips website), then clicking the
"Update" button will give you a false positive saying "The
firmware on your device is already up to date." -Tha
The HDD1830 is not Mac compatible. The database file has probably been deleted or corrupted. The player doesn't scan the hard disk on start-up, it only read the database file. Anything it doesn't read from the database file is ignored.
You will need to restore the player with the Philips Device Manager, and re-load your tracks.
