Deleted File System Philips GoGear Portable video player SA5245 4 GB

Hi can anyone help me . I have deleted the file system from my Philips GoGear Portable video player SA5245 4 GB while formatting it and can not find my backup. Is there anywhere I can download it, I've tried the philips website but no joy. Any help would be great thanks... john

Welcome to CD Freaks

After a quick look around, there are many people complaining about file system problems with this and several similar models of Philips GoGear players, so you're not alone with this issue.

If you have not already tried updating the firmware, you can download the latest firmware as follows:
  1. Go to the Philips UK website: http://www.philips.co.uk/
  2. Enter "sa5245" in the upper-right box
  3. Select your player from the suggestions it gives (most likely sa5245/02)
  4. Click on "Support for SA5245..."
  5. Click on "Software & Drivers" on the left
  6. From here you can download the firmware manager and update software.

If this does not work and your unit is still under a year old, it would be worth getting it RMA'd or bringing it back for repair if bought in a retail shop.
