Question about Toshiba Gigabeat MEGF40S MP3 Player

1 Answer

Help Please.... Hello, I have a question. I recently downloaded rockbox and really didnt know what I was doing. I am trying to get the original programing back on my gigabeat f40. I know in another post you said to reset the gigabeat, but does that mean I lose all my music files? Thanks for all your help....

In The IMMORTAL Words of Maxwell Smart of "Get Smart" Fame....
"Would YOU Beleive....."
Or in Other Words, THIS is GONNA HURT>>>>
YES, unfortunately, YOU ARE a'gonna lose EVERYTHING on yer Gigabeat....
BUT!!!!!!
IF, like I had to LEARN the HARD WAY, you HAVE downloaded all of yer music, and or other files from either Gigabeat Room, OR, WinMedia Player (Which is WHAT I use for my Gigabeat), All you need to do is simply (Enter Sracastic Groan, Sound of swift kick to my Arse, Etc.), is RE-load the music to your player, if nothing else, this gives you chance to get rid of that **** you always wanted to anyways......
ALSO, BEFORE you do any OF THAT, Have you read through the VOLUMES of info that "Rockbox" supplies to trouleshoot???
Ther just MAY be a patch, BUT if not, WEll, like Max would say
"Missed it by THAT much...."
Take heart, that by this experience, you will ALWAYS have a "BACKUP" for your player, (AND WHATELSE????) B-4 you downlaod anything.....
I know I DO!!!
Good Luck, and let yer Electronic Mantra be
" I HEREBY SWEAR TO ALWAYS, AND FAITHFULLY BACKUP ANYTHING I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO SPEND COUNTLESS HOURS RELOADING DUE TO SOME CRAPPY PROGRAMMER WHO HAS ZITS, GREASY HAIR, LIVES IN IS PARENTS HOVEL OF A CRACKER BOX, ONLY KNOWS WOMEN BY TH FAST FOOD JOINTS HE HAUNTS, AND HAS SCABS IN TRULY APPROPRIATE PLACES, AND DESERVEDLY SO, FOR CAUSING ALL OF THIS GREIF, WHEN HE SHD HAVE DOUBLE CHECKED HIS WORKS, INSTEAD OF DOWNLOADING THIS **** HE CALLS "SOFTWARE".....
And THATS my DIPLOMATIC version of those scaly scabby little cockroaches whom, if it were legal, would Attach Battery Cables to a 950 Watt Power Supply, and with Industrial Rubber Gloves, and a Diesel Semi-Truck Battey included, attch to the scrawnly little ******-woods...
Ahh, But I Digress...., Sorry
I hope this helps.....
There truly is NOT a "Easy Fix" out there, BUT, I do love my seemingly INDESTRUCTIBLE G-Beat!!!

I have rockbox on my sansa fuze mp3 player and i want to reset it


Rockbox has a dual-boot feature. To boot into the original firmware, press and hold the
Left button while turning on the player.
The player will always boot into the original firmware if it is powered by a USB
connection, and additionally will do so if USB is inserted while rockbox is running without
holding Select. This feature may be removed in the future when Rockbox is able to
handle USB transfers natively.

30g ipod rockbox wont sync with itunes after doom install


If you look at the Rockbox documentation, there is a way to reboot your iPod into the original iPod firmware and use the original interface as well as having the ability to boot into the Rockbox firmware.
The Rockbox firmware is great if you want more options for transfer and skins and so on, but it is not as easy to use as the stock iPod interface.
You can also refer to the documentation that will show how to remove Rockbox and go back to the original Apple software. I ran Rockbox for a while but it was more or a pain in the **** than I cared to deal with so I uninstalled it.
Worst case is you can do a full restore in iTunes that will restore the iPod to factory, but it will wipe the music you have loaded. Hope you have a backup.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

I need to reset the entire program on the f40. System settings and all


The EASY but Time consuming way (If you Only hagve USB 1), is to just RESET the unit.
The manual will run you through it, and reload.
I have both Gigabeat Room, and Win/Player 11, and have reset and reloaded a few times.
Just take some time (Specially with Gig Room)
Good Luck
