I have the same problem. The thing is that you need a software that coverts your Mp3s to .sat I have looked forever now but havet found one still. I belive that you have to use a japanees software(according to my friend I got mine from).

I came across this link, its a firmware / software update.

Install this and vista should recognize gigabeat.

Vista does not recognize ANYTHING, if you have XP then KEEP IT.

I have learned about vista's compatibility issues the hard way,

and now im stuck with Vista and lovely payments from Dell.

If u check your windows media player it won,t acknowledge it. If i remember right it will not work with windows media player 9 and up try media player 7 if you can find a copy.

My experience is that sometimes the battery swells up and puts pressure on the keypad, causing it scroll. Get a new battery and the scrolling stops....

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

It seems to be a permissions thing. When you launch Gigabeat Room, right click and choose "Run as Administrator". The Gigabeat button is then activated in the room interface.

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!
