Question about Toshiba Gigabeat MEGF40S MP3 Player
Hello all, This week I noticed that when I try to connect my F40 to its cradle, the charge indicator does not come on, nor does it recognize a USB connection. If the Gigabeat is out of the cradle, it does recognize a USB connection, but the charge indicator still does not come on when I piug the adapter in directly to an outlet (NOT using the cradle), What is wrong and how can I fix this? I have only had this Gigabeat for about two months, bought it from Office Depot online. I tried shutting off the battery and restarting but that didn't work. Help?
Mine did the same, touch pad became erratic then stopped working, I could still access everything when linked to a computer. Then all stopped, on power up I got a 00000010 or 0000020 error and nothing.
I popped the end caps off, removed the two small screws holding the back on and found the strap of wires connecting the hard drive was almost completely dissconnected. Pushed the connector back together , reassembled and now all working

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard

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.
