LO ARREGLé!!!!... Mi objetivo era ponerlo a funcionar de cualquier forma y LO HICE!!, igual que todos, lo formateé y me comenzó a dar el error del sistema en el HDD, prácticamente tenía un DD portátil. Ahora lo tengo funcionando con el software libre “ROCKBOX” el cual tiene solamente ventajas en comparación al limitado firmware del GIGABEAT y es abrumadoramente más completo y, por ejemplo, no se necesita nada ni similar al “GIGABEAT ROOM” para cargarle música al reproductor pues es tan simple ahora como copiar y pegar (inclusive desde el WINDOWS VISTA) . Los pasos exactos no los podría decir pues fue puro ensayo y error pero es simple, deben buscar el “ROCKBOX” para GIGABEAT serie F en la misma página de ellos (totalmente gratuito) y también buscar la carpeta “GBSYSTEM” pero en Internet, desgraciadamente no puedo dar la dirección exacta pues no la guardé pero no tardé mucho y OJO, no sirve la carpeta “GBSYSTEM” que viene con el cd del reproductor, esa está vacía o con unos archivos ocultos, la que se baja de la red trae al menos dos archivos del tipo “FWIMG” (es más, estoy casi seguro que en la página de “ROCKBOX” explican como conseguirlo de forma simple), la pegan en el reproductor conectándolo como USB. Teniendo todo ello listo, van instalándolo según las indicaciones del PDF que está en la página de “ROCKBOX”… Mucha suerte!!!! Y apreciaría que me contaran si tuvieron el mismo éxito que yo a josedanielcr@gmail.com.

Dell duo station


I had the same issue. I tried opening the dock and could not find anything wrong. It seems the charger was delivering sufficient voltage. So I disconnected power to the charger and reconnected couple of times and it started working again. My charger has a LED light and based on the brightness of the light you can findout if the output voltage is close to 20 volts.

D630 docked , ext mouse & kybd not responding


If the docking station has power:

Make sure power is off for both the laptop and the docking station. Plug your keyboard and mouse into the docking station. Dock the D630 to the docking station and then power on docking station. This should then turn on your D630. Your D630 should detect the keyboard and mouse.

If the docking station has no power:

Verify that the power cord, AC adaptor, etc. is plugged in. If the items listed seem to be in order,
there may be a problem with the power going into the docking station. (AC adaptor?)

support.dell.com will have the specific details for your D630 and your docking station, et al.

Please let me know if you have success in this.

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.

Doesn't work without cord! Battery switch is not responding at all.


There's a "hidden" switch on the lower part that makes it not use the battery. You can switch it with a pencil or pen.
