Everytime when i switch on my gigabeat f20, it shows this error.NO SYSTEM FOUND ON HDD. i've tried formating but once this error appears, you can't do anything. Sometimes it shows SYSTEM ERROR.


Hi theofrimp109,

This error usually happens when the firmware has been corrupted or deleted. The easiest way to correct this is by updating the firmware. You may also try to restore the firmware data by following the steps below.

1. Connect the gigabeat to your computer using a USB cable.

2. Start Explorer on the PC.

3. Open the folder in which the gigabeat room is installed.
--> The folder in which the gigabeat room is installed can be opened by clicking [Start] [All Programs] [TOSHIBA gigabeat room 2.0] [gigabeat room 2.0
Program Folder]. Usually, the folder will be found in C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\gigabeat room 2.0.

4. If you can't find the folder, please go inside the gigabeat then click on [tools], [folder option], go to [view tab] then select [show hidden files and folders].

5. Now, inside the gigabeat root, copy a folder named "GBSYSTEM" located in the folder that was opened in Step 3.

6. Use "Safely Remove Hardware" and disconnect the gigabeat.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Gigabeat won't connect to computer.


I was just having this problem after I installed a new operating system on my computer. I finally downloaded the full setup (updated as of march 2009 on Toshiba's website)

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/pubLogin.jsp?next_page=pubProfile.jsp&next_page_anchor=supportUpdates

Click on product updates towards the top.

I downloaded and ran the full setup instead of the standard one I had on my computer previously. Also, I don't know if you have a similar problem, but eventually I was able to connect to the gigabeat room, but when I put it in the windows media player mode, my computer didn't detect anything. For that, I had to right click on My Computer, Manage, and then go under Device Manager (left). On the right, you'll see a list in which you'll find the toshiba gigabeat. If it has a yellow ? or ! then go ahead and right click on it and try to have windows detect the driver itself. That solved the second issue for me, and my computer was able to install the driver itself and now my gigabeat is at least detected properly and connecting to my computer.
My current issue is different now where 15 GB of my music is unplayable due to some library updating failure :(
Anyway, hope the earlier part solved your problem.
Also, make sure when you run the update firmware, you follow the instructions correctly. 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.

IMPORTANT NOTE!!!!!!!!!!!

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!

Could I please have more instructions on how to restore firmware data as I am still getting same results. "NO SYSTEM FOUND ON HDD" 00200060


Just install your software that came with your Gigabeat. After installation please run the following program. Start/Programs/Toshiba Gigabeat Room/Formatting Utility for Gigabeat. This will place all the files back in the hard drive. Please do not format this unit from My computer to the drive letter. You end up deleting the system and boot files. if that does not help try this in your software you right click on your gigabeat room and open it up and find gbsytem folder drag and drop into your gigabeat on your my computer screen. and then check out.try it couple of times.many times this does work for first time directly. -------- you can also try contacting topshiba service center click the link directly http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp ---------- try downloading the firmware again and installing it in your device click this link directly for firmware http://www.megaupload.com/?d=MO4S7T6I ----- This will help. Thanks please keepupdated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Gigabeat Room Can't Detect Gigabeat on Vista


The key is to have the GB watcher run under XP mode and administrator rights. When you start up the GB Room right click on the program and run as administrator. It runs every time for me. I have the F20.

Gigabeat room fails to recognize my Gigabeat


It seems to be a permissions thing. When you launch Gigabeat Room, right click and choose "Run as Administrator". The Gigabeat button is then activated in the room interface.

Computer does not recognize Gigabeat Device


the solution is simple. Simply Run both Gigabeat watcher and giga-room programs as administrator if u have windows vista.
How to do this :

Click on start in the taskbar at the bottom right of your screen,
then click on all programs,
then click on the Toshiba Gigaroom Folder,
then right click Gigabeat watcher and click on "Run as Administrator"
then right click "Gigaroom" and click on Run as Administrator

and then look in the bottom right of the taskbar, the little Gigabeat watcher symbol should be there with a green square instead of grey. If its green then it means Vista has recognised your gigabeat and u can now transfer music to it via gigaroom. i hope this helps people as i was on the verge of buying XP myself again... Peace all and HAPPY GIGABEATIN!
