Firmware for Toshiba GigaBeat MEGF 20 HDD Audio Player

No System found on Harddisk

    No Systsm Found on HDD. Have tried installing the version 2 software that came with it and it's formatting utility and also the version 3 one, but neither one has fixed the issue.

    Regular files transfer to and from it no problem like a regular USB storage device. I'm using Vista, so perhaps the software is not compatible, although I have used gigabeat room on Vista before to transfer music to it with no problems in the past.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard

Sounds like a HDD crash, try booting with a startup or recovery disk to see if you data is still there. If so, BACK UP IMMEDIATLY. Then you will have to reinstall your Operating System. MM85

Everytime when i switch on my gigabeat f20, it shows this error.NO SYSTEM FOUND ON HDD. i've tried formating but once this error appears, you can't do anything. Sometimes it shows SYSTEM ERROR.


Hi theofrimp109,

This error usually happens when the firmware has been corrupted or deleted. The easiest way to correct this is by updating the firmware. You may also try to restore the firmware data by following the steps below.

1. Connect the gigabeat to your computer using a USB cable.

2. Start Explorer on the PC.

3. Open the folder in which the gigabeat room is installed.
--> The folder in which the gigabeat room is installed can be opened by clicking [Start] [All Programs] [TOSHIBA gigabeat room 2.0] [gigabeat room 2.0
Program Folder]. Usually, the folder will be found in C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\gigabeat room 2.0.

4. If you can't find the folder, please go inside the gigabeat then click on [tools], [folder option], go to [view tab] then select [show hidden files and folders].

5. Now, inside the gigabeat root, copy a folder named "GBSYSTEM" located in the folder that was opened in Step 3.

6. Use "Safely Remove Hardware" and disconnect the gigabeat.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

System error 00200060 NO SYSTEM FOUND ON HDD ona Toshiba MEGF40. I tried firmware upgrade, reformatting but not working hellp me


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!

Could I please have more instructions on how to restore firmware data as I am still getting same results. "NO SYSTEM FOUND ON HDD" 00200060


Just install your software that came with your Gigabeat. After installation please run the following program. Start/Programs/Toshiba Gigabeat Room/Formatting Utility for Gigabeat. This will place all the files back in the hard drive. Please do not format this unit from My computer to the drive letter. You end up deleting the system and boot files. if that does not help try this in your software you right click on your gigabeat room and open it up and find gbsytem folder drag and drop into your gigabeat on your my computer screen. and then check out.try it couple of times.many times this does work for first time directly. -------- you can also try contacting topshiba service center click the link directly http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp ---------- try downloading the firmware again and installing it in your device click this link directly for firmware http://www.megaupload.com/?d=MO4S7T6I ----- This will help. Thanks please keepupdated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

System error 10 please help


The solution for a Code 10 is to uninstall and reinstall the software. Unplug the mp3 player from the computer. Uninstall the Toshiba software. Reinstall a clean version of the software from Toshiba's website. Then replug the player. If you continue to have a problem, and are running Windows Vista, upgrade the firmware: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/askIris.jsp

You need to download the MEGF series v.3 update

System error


I Fixed!!... 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.
