    Toshiba MES60VK Gigabeat 60 GB Portable Media Player (Black): Runs fine, but when I hook it up to my computer the screen says "Connected" and then it goes into "Initializing" and that's it. Can't open up any music files from CPU or download new ones. Tried different USB cables, they work fine.

    The Gigabeat won't get out of the "Initializing" phase, my computer does not recognize that I have it attached by USB and when I disconnect it, the mp3 player remains frozen in the "Initializing" screen. So I reboot it with its reset switch. The USB cables are fine, the computer works, it's not a battery issue . . . it just suddenly happened.

Just try plug in the device to another computer and check if the problem still persists. You can also try installing the driver again to your computer. I think system is not able to recognize your player and thats why it is showing "Initializing". Once thing you can try is just restart your computer once.

The Toshiba Gigabeat digital audio player can play music files in any of these three file formats: MP3, WAV and WMA (.mp3, .wav, .wma).Music files can be transferred to the Gigabeat from a computer, using the Toshiba Audio Application software that ships on a CD included with the Gigabeat.
Follow this procedure to prepare the Gigabeat and the computer for transferring music files:
1. Charge the Gigabeat's battery, using the supplied AC adapter, until the orange power light on the face of the Gigabeat turns green.
2. Before connecting the Gigabeat to the computer, install the Toshiba Audio Application on the computer that will be the source of music files for the Gigabeat.
3. Launch the Toshiba Audio Application.
4. Connect the Gigabeat to the computer's USB port.
Once the Gigabeat is connected, a blue icon will show up in the left pane of the applications window, showing which drive letter has been assigned to the Gigabeat. The Gigabeat's display will indicate that a connection has been established. Follow these steps to transfer music files to the Gigabeat
1. With the Gigabeat connected, and the Audio Application running, you can create new folders for your music files on the Gigabeat by selecting File, Menu, then New Folder.
2. Select the music files to transfer from the computer, and than click Copy from the Edit menu.
3. Select the Gigabeat folder to which you'd like to transfer the files, and than click Paste from the Edit menu.
It's also possible to drag and drop selected files from a CD to the Gigabeat folder.
Windows Media Player (version 9 or newer) can also be used to transfer music files to the GigaBeat.

It's possible that the drive letter that the PC is trying to assign to the MP3 player is already taken. Hook up your MP3 player, then right-click on My Computer and go to Manage. Click on Disk Management, then see if you see your MP3 player on the list to the right. If you see it there, right-click on it and select Change Drive Letter. Change the drive letter to a letter that is not in use. Let me know if this helps.

Sir,

Check the drivers u must be properly installed and updated one. Check with the device manager.

According to ur problem......
The program is stuck "initializing", "connecting" or "scanning" This error occurs when the attempt to contact the connection server fails. The reason is usually that something on your machine or on your local network is blocking the SimplifyPeer process from running.

thanks
good luck

  • Right click your Portable Media Player drive, click format...
  • A box will appear, mark the check box "Quick Format"
  • Click OK.
  • After reformatting, copy all the files you have transferred in your computer and paste in to your Portable Media Player drive.

    This can already be a corrupted firmware already of the player, so if its still under warranty you can take it to a service center near you or just have the device replace....

You might have a bad USB cable. Try to use a different USB cable. Another thing you can try is plug the device to a different computer so that you can isolate the problem.

MES60VK Gigabeat - Dead


There is a switch on the bottom left side of the dock connector of the player. Flick the switch to the right and it should work. The switch is the battery cutoff switch. It is there so it will charge only. I have no idea why Toshiba though this was a good idea, but they put it there.

USB Connection Problem


I have the same problem. If you have a large library try letting it stay hooked up for a long time. It seems like it is taking inventory of device then it should work after a while. Sometimes this works. Sometimes I have to unplug then try again in a few minutes.

So, what happened when you connected the thing to sync with a PC and rightclicked on the tool-tray item for the Gigabeat?  Maybe you got a menu about Upload Portable Media Center?  If not, go into applications and see if the gigabeat stuff doesn't happen to contain the bespoken user manual.  Open it...read it....  Usually there's a little button-sequence to prepare the player and another to restore the Portable Media Center program.  Happy discovering.

Toshiba gigabeat MES60VK (60 GB) stopped working


There is a little battery cut of switch at the bottom of the device. You can unbend a paper clip and switch it off. Then switch it back on after a few seconds. Plug it back into the usb cable to charge it. It should work ok now.
