Question about Toshiba gigabeat S MP3 Player
Gigabeat displays "Update or restore Portable Media Center using PC application",...........user manual is useless.
I have shipped the device to Toshibas repair center for different issues twice (via Radio shack) paying about $60 per time.
Any ideas for this current problem?
first go to http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/GigabeatSInfo#Firmware. You can find here the firmware restore thing on the list you go to Gigabeat V Firmware Update 1.5 so it should give you two links download the second one its called GigabeatSRecover.rar now the programs in Japanese or Korean not sure but i couldn't read but they have pictures to help you visually. It's going to tell you to turn off your battery then connect the charger once it asked you to connect the S30 to the pc the program is going to say connect on the right hand bottom and start to download the firmware in to it then it will tell you to dissconnect the S30 from the pc after doing that youll get a message saying updating firmwear or something like that do not reset it once thats over its done it will be as good as new every thing you had in it will be retored including songs pictures videos every thing well be back but there will be one little difference to it if you had any songs that were written in japanese it wont show them any more it will just be a black space there but they will be there thats the only thing that will change other than that every thing will be back the way it was.
I hope it will work for you.
