    Hola, el problema con el mio es que no logro encontrar los archivos que inicialmente se necesitan, wue es el firmware de toshiba que se llama FWIMG01.DAT, si lo hiciste manual tuviste que haber nombrado el original a FWIMG01.DAT.ORIG y pegar el otro.


    Lo que no tengo son los originales, quer[ia ver si me los puedes pasar a mi mail o algo asi porfa, un zip con toda la carpeta de GBSYSTEM seria muy util pero nada mas acuerdate de que necesitas poner visibles los archivos ocultos


    Gracias

LO ARREGLé!!!!... Mi objetivo era ponerlo a funcionar de cualquier forma y LO HICE!!, igual que todos, lo formateé y me comenzó a dar el error del sistema en el HDD, prácticamente tenía un DD portátil. Ahora lo tengo funcionando con el software libre “ROCKBOX” el cual tiene solamente ventajas en comparación al limitado firmware del GIGABEAT y es abrumadoramente más completo y, por ejemplo, no se necesita nada ni similar al “GIGABEAT ROOM” para cargarle música al reproductor pues es tan simple ahora como copiar y pegar (inclusive desde el WINDOWS VISTA) . Los pasos exactos no los podría decir pues fue puro ensayo y error pero es simple, deben buscar el “ROCKBOX” para GIGABEAT serie F en la misma página de ellos (totalmente gratuito) y también buscar la carpeta “GBSYSTEM” pero en Internet, desgraciadamente no puedo dar la dirección exacta pues no la guardé pero no tardé mucho y OJO, no sirve la carpeta “GBSYSTEM” que viene con el cd del reproductor, esa está vacía o con unos archivos ocultos, la que se baja de la red trae al menos dos archivos del tipo “FWIMG” (es más, estoy casi seguro que en la página de “ROCKBOX” explican como conseguirlo de forma simple), la pegan en el reproductor conectándolo como USB. Teniendo todo ello listo, van instalándolo según las indicaciones del PDF que está en la página de “ROCKBOX”… Mucha suerte!!!! Y apreciaría que me contaran si tuvieron el mismo éxito que yo a josedanielcr@gmail.com.

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
