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

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.

Cant watch dvd movie on ipod touch


I think you should change another DVD Ripper. Maybe you can try to use Leawo DVD to iPod Video Converter.

Leawo Free DVD to iPod Converter is a totally DVD to iPod converter free software, while Leawo DVD to iPod Converter Pro is an extremely powerful DVD iPod Converter that can convert DVD to iPod MP4 without limitations for iPod Touch, iPod Touch 4, etc.

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.

  • i recomend the arcsoft media converter 3 for a starter converter it will work just fine for 15 days

    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.

    I have a jwin portable dvd player. It has a USB port. How do I play movied from my ipod classic on this?


    Do you have a model # on that JWin - I wasn't aware that they made portable DVD players.

    Generally speaking, though, you would have take the movie file from the Ipod and copy it to your computer if it was not already on there. Then from the computer (with a DVD-ROM drive), you would burn the file to DVD and play it on the DVD player.

    You can't play video from the Ipod directly to the portable dvd player, because the iPod does not have a video out - it only has an audio out - sorry.

    Ok, I figured out a solution on my own.

    Remarkably simple - all I did was reformat the player again and then reinstall windows media player.
