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
