hi there, looks like the player is asking for a firmware update.perhaps u accidentally erased parts of it beforehand and now it is a bit on the blind side.. nevermind, get the latest firmware(gigabeat room 3.0) here: http://www.toshiba.co.th/download/support.html
and find more info on the giga here:
(choose the program fitting your windows version!)
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.
hi i had the same problem and updated gigabeat room to version 3 , not the actual gigabeat just its pc software , and it seems to work ok most of the time but only if i load gigabeat watcher after plugging in my player . hope this helps ,i emailed toshiba uk but they told me that they have no intention of updating the players firmware ,
I had the same problem. Reinstalling the firmware solved it but you can't get it from Toshiba (they were no help). I found a copy on the web but have since had a hard drive so I no longer have the file. Try a Google search for gigabeat firmware and you should track it down.
Identical problem - working only with power cord. Wont power on battery or usb cable.
I actually opened player and check every single option. (I am experienced electronic - tech.) Result: battery is fully charged (768 mA/ 3.97V on bench) Battery switch on bottom fully functional. (switching on/off 3.97V comming from battery) USB supply 5.0 V in perfect order. Conclusion: There is no "EASY" fix for this problem. It is either problem with firmware (low possibility) or semiconductor on logic board (practically not fixable on DIY basis)
I bought my Gigabeat 60Gb for $ 70.00 used on Ebay so I will live with this problem.
I have a similar problem. I bought a new gigabeat U 2Gb in USA last week. It functioned properly in computers in USA. Now I'm in Argentina and I can't connect it to my computer (windows XP and windows media player 10 both in spanish)I tried install WMP 10 in english that came in the CD and the other two files windowsmedia10-kb902344-x86-intl.exe and windowsmedia10-kb895316-x86-enu.exe and in the last case apear this message: "Setup cannot update your WMP 10 files because the language installed on your system is different from the update language". Do you have any suggestion to solve my problem? Thanks
the solution is simple. Simply Run both Gigabeat watcher and giga-room programs as administrator if u have windows vista.
How to do this :
Click on start in the taskbar at the bottom right of your screen,
then click on all programs,
then click on the Toshiba Gigaroom Folder,
then right click Gigabeat watcher and click on "Run as Administrator"
then right click "Gigaroom" and click on Run as Administrator
and then look in the bottom right of the taskbar, the little Gigabeat watcher symbol should be there with a green square instead of grey. If its green then it means Vista has recognised your gigabeat and u can now transfer music to it via gigaroom. i hope this helps people as i was on the verge of buying XP myself again... Peace all and HAPPY GIGABEATIN!
