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.


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 I used an old machine with outdated USB to get mine to work again :) you can also check for aftermarket firmware called Rock Box, just installed that one mine, no more converting music to *.sat,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!

How to fix a system error?

A system error indicates a possible software or firmware problem. If the unit is in warranty, contact Toshiba about a software upgrade (possible).
If it is out of warranty, the cost of repair is likely more than a new unit.

A system error can be caused by moisture (#1), physical damage (#2) and a possible software update issue. Your Toshiba Gigabeat Room software for your computer may be able to get upgrades for your MEG-F10K. Check the owner's manual. If you cannot connect to the unit with the computer to transfer songs and movies, it is likely not repairable for a reasonable cost.
