Re: recovery problem

Mallesh: There is a switch on the bottom left of the player, flick this switch to the left using a small screwdriver, then flick it to the right. Hold down the windows logo button, and hold the left button on the directional button. This will bring it into firmware recovery mode. Next download this file: Gigabeat S firmware. Follow the instructions and your player will be fixed.
llchuk: Try formating the storage media in Windows Media Player. If that doesn't work, update the firmware by downloading it from the link I posted for mallesh. It should work after the firmware update.

Hi is there an update for the media player for the toshiba MES60v?

Microsoft stopped supporting the product after they launched their own Zune, thus there is no update.

XP does not detect iriver h10 anymore

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.

Sansa Recovery Tool
PDF how to use recovery tool

Answer The power may be depleted fully or the Connect might be hung during boot. Charge the Connect for at least 20 minutes using the AC charger. If the Connect will not turn on after 20 minutes charging with the AC charger, you can then try using the Connect Recovery Tool.

The recovery tool will reformat and reload the latest firmware to the Connect. The tool and instructions are located here.

Note: Ensure the Connect is turned off by holding the power button 8-10 seconds before initiating the recovery sequence.

The e200 can operated under two different modes, MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) mode and MSC (Mass Storage Class) mode.

To see the MicroSD card as a Removable Disk, the e200 must be in MSC mode. The following screen shots show how the "My Computer" screen will look when the device is plugged in under each mode.

MTP Mode
MSC Mode

To change the mode from MTP to MSC go to the Main Menu of the e200.

If you're e200 is plugged into your computer, please unplug it first.

1) Scroll to the "Settings" > "USB Mode" > "MSC Mode" and push the select button.

2) Connect the e200 to the computer using the USB cable provided.

3) Go to "My Computer" and there will now be two Removable Disk drives similar to the MSC Mode image on top.

I am trying to register an Adobe program on my computer and I can't because the program says my serial number is invalid. It seems like there are many people with this problem.
