    Mine says that too!
    "Update or restore portable media center using PC application. Read user manual"

    Nothing in the user manual helps. When I connected it to my PC, I couldn't sync any songs on it, there was an error. I called toshiba and they just referred me to a electronic place to fix it (for $114.95!). But i feel like there is a easier way to reset and restore.

    Please help!

Apparently you have to restore the firmware. Download the zip file from http://www.aibohack.com/giga/repair_gigabeat.zip I found it on http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19406 site.

Read the "read me" and follow the instructions. Got mine magically fixed!

Shut the unit down completely by switching off the battery on the bottom. then switch it back on and hold down the left arrow key and the windows button simultaneously. it will ask you to do a few steps where you can either erase the hard drive on the unit and start fresh ( i did this and it worked amazingly), or you can choose to update the firmware like the person above suggested. this did not work for me. so basically if you erase everything its like having the unit new again. please tell me if this helps.

Toshiba Gigabeat doesn't work


hi there,
looks like the player is asking for a firmware update.perhaps u accidentally erased parts of it beforehand and now it is a bit on the blind side..
nevermind, get the latest firmware(gigabeat room 3.0) here:
http://www.toshiba.co.th/download/support.html

and find more info on the giga here:

Help!!!


So, what happened when you connected the thing to sync with a PC and rightclicked on the tool-tray item for the Gigabeat?  Maybe you got a menu about Upload Portable Media Center?  If not, go into applications and see if the gigabeat stuff doesn't happen to contain the bespoken user manual.  Open it...read it....  Usually there's a little button-sequence to prepare the player and another to restore the Portable Media Center program.  Happy discovering.
