Okay, here's what you need to do. I'm assuming at some point yours like mine was formatted under windows. This is bad for them lol. Locate your copy of gigabeat room, and install it. This comes with a extra program in the start menu titled formatting utility for gigabeat. Format with this program, and then look under program files/toshiba/gigabeatroom/GBsystem. Copy GBsystem to the gigabeat, then turn the battery off with the switch on the bottom for thirty seconds. That should do it.

IMPORTANT NOTE!!!!!!!!!!!

This can only be done with a computer running USB 1.0. My newer computers could not "see" the gigabeat properly. I used an old machine with outdated USB to get mine to work again :) you can also check for aftermarket firmware called Rock Box, just installed that one mine, no more converting music to *.sat, it'll take straight mp3s now just like it should :) uploaded 20 gigs to it in less than half an hour :) beats the hell out of waiting ten hours for 8 gigs lol!

Topfield 7160 how do I do a firmware upgrade


This is a smart TV device, not a router. You need a serial cable to do the upgrade and a serial port on your PC (not a USB).

The instructions on how to upload the file, with the software provided, is on the website here.

Our Topfield TRF 7180 records ok but pixilates and then keeps skipping when playing back. Can anyone help with is problem or do we just need to replace it? TIA


It may be a fault with the hard disk which does the recording, but I'd check the signal strength to the unit first. You need a good signal for reliable recording, one which does not drop in and out. You should use quad shield coax cable right from the aerial to the back of the Topfield

Hi there, so I pulled a Toshiba MK2006GAL out of my Creative Zen, and I got myself a All-in-One USB Card Reader that has a port that fits right for the Toshiba MK2006GAL HD. Now I connect to my ACER...


Although your drive: http://sdd.toshiba.com/main.aspx?Path=StorageSolutions/1.8-inchHardDiskDrives/MK2006GAL

physically fits into one of the slots in that Card Reader, it is not making any "electronic" connections, i.e,. no power is reaching the Toshiba, and no "data" cable is connected from the Toshiba to the Card Reader.

Similarly, although you can fill your automobile's gas-tank with water, there still is a fundamental "incompatibility" to be overcome.

Yes, Windows is recognizing that you connected a USB device into a USB port on your computer, but that's all that has happened, from Windows "point-of-view".

Hi, I have a toshiba RD-XS52 that requires a firmware update before HDMI will work with newer model TV. Have tried to download and run update link provided by tosiba with 10 pouched discs. Any thoughts?


I tried the firmware found on Toshiba Canada website, it doesn't work. I believe the US version of RD-XS52 firmware is not upgradeable. The site said the firmware is for RD-XS52SC. You guys got it to work?

HDD Corrupt


I have the XS35 and the HDD drive is curropt. Can I do the following?

1. Download the Toshiba firmware update:
http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/customersupport/model_firmware.asp?model=rd-xs34

2. Burn the ISO to a CD-R disc. ImgBurn is an excellent free burner for this.
http://www.imgburn.com/

3. Insert the CD in your unit. It will auto-install the firmware. Follow onscreen instructions. Takes about 10 minutes total.

After the update, my existing HDD shows are playable again, and I can record and playback from the HDD. I bet it would be a good idea to periodically backup your shows on DVDs, and regularly reformat the HDD.

IAUDIO SAYS HHD ERROR


I also had this error. I assume this fix will also work on the X5 and maybe M3.
This can also be used to upgrade the HDD to a larger size!

I love my M5 and was gutted when it broke, it sounds brilliant and even in June 2009 it beats the competitions tiny, flashy, colour screen malarky by being solid, ugly, un-nickable and NO DAFT SOFTWARE! That last point is integral to fixing this fab machine.

Mine was caused by a chair leg placed on the unit... so I pretty much knew for sure the error truly was a HDD one.

- I bought a new HDD (hard disk drive), a Toshiba MK3006GAL (30gb) to replace the original MK2006GAL (20gb) off ebay. My fixed M5 is now 30GB! I'd be careful what drive you use to replace the original, I have no idea which work and which don't work. Stick with Toshiba probably.

- If you have an external drive caddy for 1.8" HDD's or some means of easily formatting the disk like a cable, format it to fat32 filesystem now. if it's secondhand your seller might do this for you if you ask nicely. Skip the linux steps if you can do this.

- Unscrew the back of the unit with a properly sized precision screwdriver, you don't want to ruin the heads on the screws mangling them with the wrong tools as they won't go back in!

- *gently* peel back the silver tape and move the red wire aside. The tape is conductive to stop static from the HDD messing things up and vice-versa.

- remove the back tape section and remember where it goes.

- remove the HDD and gently remove the delicate connector cable

- replace the HDD and put everything back as it was, making sure the black tape is in the same place and the silver tape is firmly attached (as it is meant to conduct electricity). Screw it all back up.

SKIP THESE STEPS if you previously formatted the HDD and continue where it says NOW:

- Windows was useless as it finds the device but you can't do anything to it, so I used the Ubuntu linux instead. There is probably a similar method for macs. Maybe you could use DOS, but god help you! If you hate linux, maybe Partition Magic for Windows can be used but this is only a suggestion and may be a totally useless one as I didn't try it.
- Get Ubuntu linux (or your own preferred distro) live CD (or install and enjoy a windows free life!).
- Load the livecd.
- Load Gparted (System>Administrator>Partition Editor, or "sudo gparted" typed in the terminal)
- Find the unformatted new HDD from the drop down menu e.g. SDA will be your computers HDD, don't touch that! SDB will either be your M5 or another internal HDD. You will recognise the correct drive by noticing it has 'unallocated' (i.e. unformatted) space of the same size of your replacement HDD, and won't be half full like your PC's drives (which you DONT want to format!).
- Format it to FAT32 (the same as a pendrive).
- Remember to 'unmount' the filesystem when you unplug or it may corrupt. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, leave it plugged in while you turn off the computer, and remove it when the PC is off.

NOW:

- Either using Linux or other means, you have an M5 with a new HDD formatted to fat32.
- Download the latest firmware from Cowon.
- Plug in the M5 into the PC
- The PC >should< recognise this is an IAudio M5, and you should be able to access the new empty disk. I did this step in Linux, so its probably best that you do too.
- Create a new folder on the M5 called "FIRMWARE"
- Drag the firmware file into the FIRMWARE folder.
- Unplug the unit safely (i.e. unmounted) and turn it on.

The unit runs a firmware update and recreates the software on the new disk.

Voila! You have a repaired M5!

Connect to a PC and add your music back on. You did keep a backup, right? ;-)

Hope I've helped everyone!
