    I have the same problem as you guys and have tried reinstalling or copying original files from disk to gigabeat F20 and also installing update 3.00 but neither have worked. I have spent quite a bit of time doing things that as far as I can tell should work. Has anyone managed to solve the "no system on HDD 00200060" problem.

    same **** with mine

    LOL I have the same problem. It went flat, I charged it, turned it on and i have the same message error on the screen as all of you. My daughter dropped it in the toilet, called the insurance company told them about my daughters mishap and they have replaced it with a 120gb classic ipod. Dam. The insurance was $80 exesss and they dont want the gigabeat,so I listed it on a auction site with all the accessories that it comes with and it fetched me $42, great. That I think is the best solution to this problem.

Mine is the exactly the same! It works perfectly fine as a HHD storage when I plug it into my Mac.. however when I want to use it as a mp3 player (i.e. listen to music or view pics as such) it comes up with the error "NO SYSTEM FOUND ON HHD" with the code error above it "00100060."

I am pretty certain it is stuffed.. I can hear the needle clicking sound as I attempt to turn it on.. I am thinking it has snapped off or is not in the right place. I tried bagging it on the carpet and tapping it in my hand whilst the loading screen was on.. for some this may get it to work.. but for me.. the loading screen was on whilst tapping it and it still could get that needle in the right place! Maybe you could try this for anyone who is desperate... otherwise the other solution is to pay to get a new HDD.

Hope I helped?

Everytime when i switch on my gigabeat f20, it shows this error.NO SYSTEM FOUND ON HDD. i've tried formating but once this error appears, you can't do anything. Sometimes it shows SYSTEM ERROR.


Hi theofrimp109,

This error usually happens when the firmware has been corrupted or deleted. The easiest way to correct this is by updating the firmware. You may also try to restore the firmware data by following the steps below.

1. Connect the gigabeat to your computer using a USB cable.

2. Start Explorer on the PC.

3. Open the folder in which the gigabeat room is installed.
--> The folder in which the gigabeat room is installed can be opened by clicking [Start] [All Programs] [TOSHIBA gigabeat room 2.0] [gigabeat room 2.0
Program Folder]. Usually, the folder will be found in C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\gigabeat room 2.0.

4. If you can't find the folder, please go inside the gigabeat then click on [tools], [folder option], go to [view tab] then select [show hidden files and folders].

5. Now, inside the gigabeat root, copy a folder named "GBSYSTEM" located in the folder that was opened in Step 3.

6. Use "Safely Remove Hardware" and disconnect the gigabeat.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.
