Gosh! where did you drop the gigabeat?? It must have been a hard fall, or in an awkward position, because I have dropped mine on cement so many times, but it has a tiny scratch on the back and nothing else.

I once had to send my gigabeat in to the company for repairs. They did a pretty good job, fixed it, and sent it back. I would recommend sending it in, because your problem seems out of your control.

Wont turn on


Sounds like the battery is spent. If you just bought this 'new', you should know these haven't been made for a while, maybe 2 years. The battery might be dead. New ones aren't too expensive.

If you stored music on a hdd it should be safe. If all else fails, remove the hdd and connect via usb to a computer to retrieve the music.

Gigabeat windows gone


Try formatting the drive. Use either RealPlayer, Windows Media Player or Media Monkey to synchronize your music. You can drag and drop, but I dont advise that as I believe that leads to crash and format itself. DO NOT remove the USB cable while it is uploading. If you need to stop synching, you must first close the programe you're using before disconnecting.

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 frozen!


Hi Lorna, Yeah I found my Gigabeat froze a few different times when I was getting used to it. Solution: at the bottom of player there is a little battery on/off switch - its tiny and black but you would have needed to switch it on to first use it. Well turn it off here for 10 seconds and the on again. This removes all power from the hard drive and circuits which occassionally freeze. Hope that helps

Toshiba Gigabeat (60GB): How to put movies on?


Yes you can put movies on Gigabeat but it's time consuming and takes 3 programs to do it. We use DVDfab Platinum,3GP_Converter and Windows Media Player. If someone out there has a simpler way please post. 1st. Rip your movie to your hard drive and remember where you put it. (We've found using DVDFab Platinum it's easiest since we have PSP, Gigabeat & I-Pod and it offers a conversion program for all plus burning our home movies is a cinch.) 2nd. Open your 2nd conversion program (we use 3GP_Converter) and drop your burned movie files into it. We love the 3GP cause you just drag & drop. I don't know why the Gigabeat needs an extra conversion but it does, my PSP is easier to get movies onto. =( 3rd. Open your now fully converted movie with Windows Media Player. And you know the rest: just sync. While I love my Gigabeat it's pretty ridiculous to have to do all this to watch one little movie because it doesn't always work. However, unlike my PSP I can put a whole bunch of movies & pics & music on my gigabeat without running out of room! My husband is a computer geek and has tried several programs and this is the easiest way he's found to rip movie, yikes!
