Question about Toshiba Gigabeat MEGF40S MP3 Player

1 Answer

Little More Help....

Hey Dragon, thanks for the help bro. Although I wouldv'e liked to hear some better news. But I do have another question.
Why isn't the gigabeat working at all? It wont play any of the music I already had. I don't know what kinda BS system that is, but i'm getting really frustrated with it. So basically I have to go to the manuel to bring back the original programing? and I will lose everything?
I don't have anything backed up, I don't even know how to back up my gigabeat files...I got my music from different places. Thanks man

Itsa Like this,
"Member when I was doin my "Diatribe" with that pimp[ly lil sh-t,l that put that **** on tjhe net??
Dude, that WAS NOT for "Finger Exercise"......
Someone puts that **** on the net, and leaves out a "Critical" point...
Luffing your player, meaning,
"Right Now, ya gots yerself a paperweight!!!"
Somewhere, Like a "Cars Engine", there is a "GAP"
A line or a hundred, of "CODE", is NOT reaching your player, and the Hard-Drive is "Luffed"!!!
Thats why it doesn't play.....
The "Manual" for "rocksh-t" may?? have a blurb for it "Not Playing", but at this point in time, man, you are "Outta Luck"...
NOW, if you want, you can keep looking for answers, pay "Premium" for "Expert" help, but if you really really want to get the thing running again...
FIRST, lemme ask,
HOW didja "LOAD" the tunes into the palyer????
you MUST have some program in your pc that loaded the tunes????
HOW did you load them onto the G-Beat???
THATS where your music SHOULD be.....
Did you load them directly from the "Source(s)"???? withOUT going thru your PC?Mac????
If the Latter, "Circumventing the PC/MAC, yer Screwed...
IF you went through the PC/Mac, you MUST have the files saved SOMEWHERES!!!
I hate to have you delete everything B4 losing all of yer music IF there is files Somewhere...
Bottom LINE,
Ya Gotta dig up the G-Beat Manual, under "Delete ALL", and byte the BIG ONE!!!
You can wait for further advice, but I really feel you gotta start (AND BACKUP!!!!) from scratch man!!!
Its like being UGGGHHHH!!! 54, and having to get a "Colonoscopy"!!!
Me AND my wife, AND a GOOD Girl Friend of ours have to have it done!!!
So DUDE, We FEEL fer ya!!!
Yer Check list

  • See if you have Gigabeat Room on yer Laptop/Notebook
  • Use the "USB" cord to hook directly to G-Room, if you have
  • Look for stored tunes if so
  • Follow directions for "RESET/ERASE
  • WHAT???
  • DO WHAT NOW???

Can't hear on right side

Unfortunately there is no real fix for this. If you have a new player, it could have an odd defect. The manufacturer offers a 90 day warranty, so if its within that window, and you purchased from an authorized dealer, they'll be more than happy to help you with a warranty replacement.

You can visit their website to get the contact information:

I wish I had better news for you.

Good Luck,

That has happened to me before, what happened was where you input the earphone jack was broken, no matter how many different headphones i tried none worked. Now I understand this doesn't help, but it might save a lot of time.
Although one short short term thing i did find out though, is that if you push the headphone jack to the side, sometimes you will receive a little sound.

Lock code unknown?

I'm sorry, but unfortunately if you don't know the code, you'll have to do a restore. And you need your computer to do that. It's the only way to remove it.

IPod Shuffle...Volume control

you didnt specify one important thing: did the problem appeared one sunny day, or was it like this since you got the ipod? if it suddenly will not allow you to reach certain volume level (i mean something like - highest level is 10, but it will not go beyond 7), it is certainly a very weird problem. in this case you can send it for replacing, or you can try reseting the unit. just make sure you backup all data. if situation exists from day one, it might just be the way they made it. I heard lots of people complain about volume level in ipod. in this case you can either look on the net for any software that allow you to inclease volume (although im not sure if there are any for your model), or you can try a better set of earphones, that will give you more power. good luck.
