Sometimes when the Gigabeat's battery dies out fully with no life in it, you cannot recharge it via USB. You must use the AC connection to charge it. If you do not have the original charger, you can use a Sony PSP charger.

Toshiba Gigabeat S 30GB Transferring error

You do not have enough room on your computer hard drive. In Windows XP, try a Disk Cleanup. This can happen when you've got a system more than a year or two old, and want to copy the whole 30GB or so.

Im sorry that that happened... I wouln't know what to do. Personally I would give up, send it back, and get an Ipod...

It seems that you have spent alot of time working on it. Time that could have been spent listening to music.I suppose that if you really bent on having that devise i guess it was worth the time but i dont think that something like that should require a lot of work. If there is one thing for sure that it know is that you want to have all that music (or whatever you have on it) backed up on a seperate drive cause stuff like that might be a sign of the devise breaking down so be ready if one day it just doesn't work...

Sorry Bro

My Gigabeat S30 can not turn off

Start by charging it with the wall charger, not the USB cable. ALso try switching the battery off, then on. The switch is on the bottom, near the dock connector, opposite the USB connector. Use a pen or paper clip to move it.

If you reformated the mp3 player's hard drive, the problem probably is that it can't find it's firmware which is supposed to be located on it's hard drive. To fix this, simply copy the GBSYSTEM folder located (usually) in C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\gigabeat room 2.0.2 to your mp3 player's root.
