Gigabeat u202 sl, winXP sp2

On 2 different pc's, my new gigabeat U202 sl, is not recognized. It looks as if it is starting to show the green charge symbol, then turns orange. Windows says usb device is not functioning. again, windows XP sp2 on both machines. The gigabeat worked great the first time I loaded it. This only happened when I tried to connect to change the music.
I tried reset. I formated the data. Still nothing, same problem.
The device charges fine using the toshiba wall/usb adapter unit.

"Setup cannot update your WMP 10 files because the language installed on your system is different from the update language". Do you have any suggestion to solve my problem? Thanks

Gigabeat room fails to recognize my Gigabeat

It seems to be a permissions thing. When you launch Gigabeat Room, right click and choose "Run as Administrator". The Gigabeat button is then activated in the room interface.

How do you make playlists

I had the same problem. Once you've bookmarked songs (using the squiggly button on the right), go into "library" (using arrow button on the left), then enter (middle button), down to "bookmark", enter, then "favourites 1" (for example), enter, "play all", enter. This will play what you've bookmarked in order.

As for "playlist".... I'm still stumped, but this should do instead!

The Gigabeat is not recognizing the firmware on it. The easiest way to re-install the firmware is to install Gigaroom. It will be able to recognize the Gigabeat and replace the firmware.

Driver files for Toshiba Gigabeat MES30VW

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

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!

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.
