Question about Toshiba gigabeat X20 (20 GB) MP3 Player

Problem with the X30 and WMP 11

Windows Media Player 11 says that my Gigabeat X30 is out of date, which I'm assuming it's referring to the firmware. I can't find a website in english to help me find out if there is new firmware for my MEGX30 or not. I mostly use my iTunes software for music anyhow, but the Gigabeats only allow them to sync to either WMP or their "Gigabeat Room" software. WMP is much more versatile. Can anyone out there help me find support in English for my X30? Maybe even new firmware for it?

How do i upload music from my pc to gigabeat 40gb i pod

To transfer music files to your gigabeat, simply connect it to the PC via USB cable. A gigabeat window will pop up on your screen and will direct you to WMP 11 (make sure to click the "Complete" button, or it will not take you to WMP 11). Once you're in WMP 11, assemble the list of music you wish to transfer and press "Sync". The program will automatically begin transferring data to your gigabeat.

It is possible that you do not have Windows Media Player 10 or 11. If you do have WMP 10, then try resetting the GoGear first (with GoGear turned on, find a small paperclip or other such device, and press it into the reset hole; it works when the player turns off). Try syncing again.

If you have WMP 11 or Windows Vista, perform a firmware upgrade:
just open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips) - if you don't see it, then re-run the installation CD or grab the "Device/Firmware Manager" from the Philips website; click on the Update tab - this will give your player the firmware upgrade.

If these methods fail, reply to message using FixYa website (not my personal e-mail).

Dell DJ Gen 2 Won't connect

if your Dell DJ player is no longer recognized by the upgrade firmware even with the correct, original device driver installed, then you will need to install a windows 'MTP' driver by doing the following. Note that this applies to Windows XP only.

1. make sure you have the SP2 XP upgrade.

2. Install Windows Media Player 10 or roll it back to version 10 if you are using a later version. You can roll it back by going to 'Add or Remove programs' and uninstalling any WMP upgrade from the 'Change or Remove Programs' dialog window. Note: don't uninstall WMP enitrely from the 'Add/remove windows components' dialog.

3. Go get this file: Unzip it in a temporary directory and run the fixup.cmd by double-clicking in explorer or using the windows 'Run' command. Follow the instructions it prints in its DOS window about deleting the Dell device in the hardware manager.

4. plug your DJ player into the USB port. XP should now say 'Found MTP device' or something similar.

5. Get the Dell DJ 1.02 firmware from their support site appropriate for your player. Run the firmware upgrade. The software should detect your player this time.

A good reference for the Dell DJ stuff is here:

Note: I can't personally recommend the 'PlayForSure' firmware as I have not been successful upgrading to it. WMP 11 does not seem to work with the Dell DJ but WMP10 does and the device Sync function works just fine.

For almost ALL of the MP3 players out there that seem bricked due to a firmware upgrade failure or some other reason, they can be usually restored in a simlar way by installing a basic 'MTP' driver which allows windows to at least send a file to it, and by putting the player into a recovery mode as defined by the manufacturer.
