I have the 30gb version. what is it doing or not doing?

Posted on Jul 27, 2007


Toshiba never updated anything with the S series so don't bother.

You can put it in firmware restore mode by holding the Windows button and left on the directional pad during power up. You might have to flip the battery switch first. THIS WILL WIPE YOUR DRIVE! I would only do this if it was completely unresponsive and dead anyway.

If you can't risk losing your data, you might be able to still get to the drive in Windows Explorer. If not, you can get a 1.8" ZIF drive enclosure and bypass the gigabeat entirely and end up with a tiny 60 gig external drive.

Also, rockbox is on the verge of being able to work on them. It can be loaded on them but the process is still a little too hardcore for me at its current state. is where I found the restore instructions.

I have the same problem, it's telling me to restore the portable media center. I called Toshiba, there is no firmware! The technician said the the firmware is built into Windows Media Center. And they can fix it for $240. Just terrible! Does ANYONE have any suggestions??

My ipod sohwing onlydisplay this (use itunes to restore utilisez itunes pour effectuer une restauration zum wiederherstellen itunes verwennden ) plese sir tillm me how to open my i pod to listen songs

You can try this, with it unplugged, powered on toggle the Hold Switch from ON to OFF quickly and then again quickly, with 2 fingers, press and hold the Center Button & Menu at the same time and when the Apple Logo appears let go and it will re-boot, its a 'hard reset', you will not lose any data. it may take you a few tries to get it, just wait 20-30 seconds and try again. hope it helped.

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.
