Question about Toshiba Gigabeat MEGF40S MP3 Player

1 Answer

Toshiba Gigabeat F40

There are 3 choices in regards to PC connections on the Device. Gigabeat Room, Windows Media Player, ot Choose. No matter what, it always goes to gigabeat room. We are trying to use with napster, so this does not fly. I have reformatted 5 times, and deleted everything, and it still reverts to this.

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:

Gigabeat room fails to recognize my Gigabeat

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.

Driver files for Toshiba Gigabeat MES30VW

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

Computer does not recognize Gigabeat Device

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!

Gigabeat and Vista

I hate to say it, but nothing can be done about your situation. I am having the same problem. It is a fight between Microsoft and Apple. I even own a new Toshiba laptop and can't even use my gigabeat with it. What a huge slap in the face. I don't understand why the technology world work with one another to make consumers happy. Sorry for the bad news
