Question about Toshiba gigabeat S MP3 Player

1 Answer

Can't sync DVD file to gigabeat

I have a digital copy of a movie that allows you to download to IPOD or to your PC and transfer to other portable devices. The error message I get on the sync is: Windows Media Player cannot sync the file because protected files cannot be converted to the required quality level or file format. I checked webhelp and it said to check to see if there were firmware upgrades that would allow the quality level. I realize that this sounds like a protection problem, but why would it allow a download to an IPOD
Toshiba's 800 support number said they do not support older models & gave me a number to call(non-toshiba). They charge 74.95 and I have to send the player to them. Is there not downloads available online??

    This looks like a similar, but different problem but not a resolution. I need to know what website(safe) that I can get an upgrade to the firmware.

    thanks

You can add video content to your Apple iPod and watch movies on its screen.
Video syncing is controlled by the iTunes application, which then sends the movie files to the iPod's hard drive.
The iPod supports a variety of video formats, and iTunes can convert other files that are not supported.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod.
Connect the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free port on your Mac or PC computer.

Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC.
Go to the "File" menu and select "Add to Library."
Navigate to the movie file you want to transfer to your iPod and click "Open."

Click on the movie you just added to iTunes, go to the "Advanced" menu and select "Create iPod or iPhone Version."
This will convert the movie file to a format that the iPod can play.

Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" list on the left side of the iTunes window.
Go to the "Movies" tab and choose to sync all movie files with your iPod.
Click on the "Sync" button at the bottom of the iTunes window.
The syncing process will begin and the movie file will be transferred to your iPod.

Transfer DVD Movies to an iPod
Transferring DVD movies onto your iPod for personal on-the-go viewing depends on the exact type of DVD you are using.
Some DVDs are in a format that can easily be transferred to iTunes, which can then convert the movies to a format for the iPod if needed.
If the DVD can't immediately be played in iTunes, you will need extra software to convert it before you can transfer the movies to iTunes and then to the iPod.

Load the DVD into the computer's disc drive and open up both the DVD in a window and your iTunes application.
Drag the DVD's main movie file into the main iTunes window to add it to your personal iTunes library.

Connect the iPod to the computer with its USB cable if it isn't already connected.
If it is already connected, or if the iPod does not automatically sync with iTunes, drag the DVD movie file from the library list to the iPod shown in the iTunes source list.


Convert the movie file to an iPod friendly format if you get a message saying the file can't be played on the iPod by selecting "Convert Selection for iPod" in the Advanced menu.
Please note that this conversion can take some time--five to 10 minutes for every two minutes of video.

Conversion Software

Download and install a DVD conversion program to your computer; look for one specifically designed for converting DVD to iPod if possible.


Open the conversion program on your computer and upload the DVD movie file into the program with the "Open" or "Upload" option.
There should be multiple files on the DVD; the actual movie has the longest run time.


Select the format that the file will be converted to from the program's drop-down list of available formats if the program is not automatically set for an iPod format. If an option specifically labeled "iPod" isn't available, choose an MP4 format.


Choose a location on your computer to save the converted file to using the program's "output" option--the desktop is the most common and easiest location.


Click on the conversion button, which is usually the biggest button located in the lower right corner, to convert the file and save it to your computer.


Open up the iTunes application and drag the converted iTunes or MP4 file into the iTunes library.


Connect the iPod to the computer using its USB cable.

How do i transfer my pics frm my laptop on my ipod touch pls advise


Transferring photos from PC to iPod touch is not that difficult. iCloud and iTunes can both be helpful.
Using "Photo Stream" to sync photos automatically with iCloud is pretty convenient. Go to "Settings > iCloud > Photos (Photo Stream on iOS 6)" and then turn on My Photo Stream. Then get your iCloud started on your PC. In the iCloud Control Panel, Check the "Photos" and then enable the "Photo Stream" option. After that, import the photos into the "Photo Stream" folder on your PC, and then you will be able to view the photos on your iPod touch. Using iCloud to transfer photos from PC to iPod touch is easy, but this method needs Wi-Fi connection. Only over Wi-Fi connection can iCloud sync photo on PC with iPod touch.
transfer-pics-frm-laptop-ipod-oxaxc0rwhkhzilrwacqreyis-3-0.png Using iTunes to sync photos with iPod touch is also easy. But you should be very careful of the syncing function of iTunes because it is a double-edge sword. Once wrong click, you may lose data in your iPod.
1. Plug your iPhone into computer via the USB cable. Launch iTunes if it doesn't launch automatically.
2. Find "File" option on the upper left corner. Then click "Add File to Library".
3. Select photos from your PC and then iTunes will sync the photos to iPhone automatically.

Music videos cant put them in ipod


step1
Locate videos. There are four main places where you can find legal videos intended for iPod use. The iTunes store (where videos can be directly downloaded) and video podcasts are certainly the most popular, but digital copies from DVDs as well as personal digital videos can also be put on the device.
  • Step 2 Import your videos into iTunes. If you have downloaded the videos from iTunes or have downloaded a video podcast from the service, this step has been done for you (as well as step 3), and you can proceed to step 4. However, if you are trying to put digital copies, or personal videos on the iPod, put all of the videos in a central folder on the desktop. Go to iTunes and select the "Add file to iTunes" to import the contents of your folder to the iTunes program.
  • Step 3 Convert non-iTunes files. iPods only work with MPEG-4 videos, so if you are uploading videos of other formats, such as AVI or WMV, they will need to be converted with the iTunes program. Highlight the videos you need to convert and right-click to pull up a sub-menu. Select "convert" to begin the process. Alternately, you can drag the files into the iTunes conversion queue, which is on the right side of the program. You will see a notice when your files are finished converting.
  • Step 4 Sync your iPod. When your new video files are ready, simply plug your iPod Classic into a USB port and then drag the video files you wish to put on your device over the iPod icon. The icon will then change to "syncing" status. Wait a few minutes while the videos are transferred. Once the icon has changed back to normal, simply press the eject button and unplug your iPod.

    Is transfer from Gigabeat to iPod possible?


    There are programs like sound taxi that will do it easily but they do charge for them. If all of the files are on your computer just add them to iTunes and they'll all transfer to your ipod. If not just transfer them from your Gigabeat to your computers music file. Add the file to your iTunes and then sync your ipod to your computer and all of your songs will be on your ipod. Unfortunately without paying for a transfer program you will loose all of your playlists and organization files.
