Question about Toshiba Gigabeat MEGF40S MP3 Player

1 Answer

It thinks its still plugged into the USB

I have the F40. Recently after an extended trip away on which I left my Gigabeat at home I found the battery had gone completly dead (lost the time). When I put it into the USB Cradle it began to charg as normal. When it had fully charged, I took it out of the cradle and turned it on. It said that it was still connected to the USB cable though and won't go past that screen, nor turn off. Have you any ideas to what might be causing this? Thank you for your help.

Re: It thinks its still plugged into the USB

Turn the battery button to the off position. It seems to work when I do it to mine. Good Luck.

System error 00200060 NO SYSTEM FOUND ON HDD ona Toshiba MEGF40. I tried firmware upgrade, reformatting but not working hellp me

Okay, here's what you need to do. I'm assuming at some point yours like mine was formatted under windows. This is bad for them lol. Locate your copy of gigabeat room, and install it. This comes with a extra program in the start menu titled formatting utility for gigabeat. Format with this program, and then look under program files/toshiba/gigabeatroom/GBsystem. Copy GBsystem to the gigabeat, then turn the battery off with the switch on the bottom for thirty seconds. That should do it.


This can only be done with a computer running USB 1.0. My newer computers could not "see" the gigabeat properly. I used an old machine with outdated USB to get mine to work again :) you can also check for aftermarket firmware called Rock Box, just installed that one mine, no more converting music to *.sat, it'll take straight mp3s now just like it should :) uploaded 20 gigs to it in less than half an hour :) beats the hell out of waiting ten hours for 8 gigs lol!

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

Gigabeat 40GB screen frozen

well, it would be really easy to take off the battery. The battery is simply plugued with a little 3-pin wire, u just pull on it and put it back in. Now to open that gigabeat, its pretty easy. I even got some images for u. Go at this website (its for the F10 and u have the F40, but its the same thing):
