How do i upload music from my pc to gigabeat 40gb i pod

To transfer music files to your gigabeat, simply connect it to the PC via USB cable. A gigabeat window will pop up on your screen and will direct you to WMP 11 (make sure to click the "Complete" button, or it will not take you to WMP 11). Once you're in WMP 11, assemble the list of music you wish to transfer and press "Sync". The program will automatically begin transferring data to your gigabeat.

How can you listen to music

First, you will have to transfer the music to the mp3 player. You can transfer music and pictures to your player using Windows Media Player. YOu can download it from here:

Once you have installed WMP, reboot and plug your mp3 player. By default, Windows Media Player automatically loads all the music and picture files stored in your My Music and My Pictures folders into the library. If you add new files to these folders, they will also be automatically added to the library. Then you will have to synchronize your mp3s player with WMP.
You can sync your music and pictures to your player using Windows Media Player. Simply connect your player to your computer using the supplied USB cable, set up sync, and you will be ready to sync your media library to the player. When you connect your player to the computer for the first time, Windows Media Player automatically selects the sync method (automatic or manual) that works best for your player. Automatic: If your player has sufficient storage space (at least 4GB of free space) and your entire media library can fit on your player, your entire media library will be automatically copied to your player as soon as you connect it to your computer. Manual: If your entire media library cannot fit on the player, then you will be prompted to manually select specific files or playlists that you want to transfer to your player.
Once you have transfer the music you want-unplug the player from the computer and that's it. If you have more doubts, you can download the manual from here:

I've never used my new ipod Nano. How do I load songs and albums from itunes

You'll need iTunes - the software that Apple has developed to do this sort of thing. Get it at:

Once you've downloaded and installed that, open it up.

Now, you have two options as to how you're going to "sync" your iPod. ("Sync" means synchronisation - loading the music onto your iPod). There are two ways, automatically and manually.

Automatically is where you have your music library on your computer. When you plug in your iPod, the computer checks the music library on your iPod and does what it has to do to make the iPod's music library identical to the one on the computer, whether this means deleting things off the iPod or copying music over. This is great if you just want to manage one set of music. You just manage it on your computer, then when you plug your iPod in you don't have to worry about it - the computer just does it. This is the simpler option.

However, this means you need to keep a copy of all your music on your computer - and you can't plug your iPod into any other computer. That's why you can manually manage your iPod. When you manually manage your iPod you drag and drop the music you want on to it - the computer DOESN'T do it automatically. This is good if you don't have much room on your computer, so you can't keep a copy of the music - or if you want to get music off more than one computer.

Plug your iPod in to the USB port of your computer. Follow any prompts that come up you should be presented with a screen under "Devices > Your iPod" (on the left hand side of the screen) that shows your iPod and some information about it (software version, how much space you've used, etc.)

If you decide to manaully manage your iPod, then there's a tick box towards the bottom of the screen with "Manually Manage my Music". Obviously, tick that if you want to do so.

If you choose to manually manage your music, then you'll need to drag music from wherever (My Computer or from your iTunes library) onto the icon for your iPod. However, if you choose to automatically manage your iPod then sort out your music libray and add the music you want. Then, go to the "File" menu and hit "Sync iPod". The computer also does this automatically whenever you plug the iPod in.

Hope all that helps!

How to download music on to it


follow the steps below:

  1. Put a CD of your favorite music into your computer, and then open your Zune player. Click on the music that you want to copy.
  2. Click on the "Rip" button, and then save your music with any of the following file extensions: .wma, .wmv, .mp3, .jpg, .mp4, .m4v, .m4a, .m4b or .mov. The ability to play music in all of these formats is one of the features that make Zune such a superior digital player.
  3. Plug your Zune player into your computer using a USB cable, and then the Zune software will automatically import all of your selected music into the player. Set the "Sync" option to "Default" so that all the music in your directory will install in your Zune player whenever you plug it into your computer.
  4. Purchase music online by either buying each song individually (usually for about 99 cents a song) or buying a membership to a website where you get unlimited downloads. You automatically get a membership to Zune Marketplace when you purchase Zune, and you can get unlimited downloads there.
I hope the above steps will help to solve your problem.

Good luck

Gigabeat S Series firmware restore

I just solved the same problem yesterday. When you download the firmware, save it to yur desktop and burn a CD because the gigabeat won't get it unless there is an actual CD in the rom.

Now, connect the gigabeat to the computer and let the firmware install. The unit will automatically restart twice. Here's the tricky part. You have to hold down the start button on the device until you see the start screen. (It took awhile for me to figure that out!)

After I saw the start screen, I saw that all my files were there! YAY
