Question about Toshiba gigabeat MES60VK Digital Media Player

1 Answer

I can't unlock my Gigabeat.

I dropped my Gigabeat from about 2 ft above the ground and it turned off. I took it home and tried to charge it because I couldn't think of anything else to do. The screen came on just fine and the menu was there, but I couldn't press anything because it told me the device was still blocked. The hold button was pushed back to the unlock position but it still told me the device was locked.

How can I get it to unlock?
If I can't unlock it, is there a way to get the media out of the Gigabeat so I can transfer to my computer?

Betcha something's rattling in there.  Open it up (or have the local shop do it to keep the warrantee) and set it right so it registers that the lock switch is moved.  Spring things back into shape to the lock/unlock switch works.  Then close it back up and be careful, maybe putting a case on it.

Frozen


i'm thinking the hard drive is messing up... you know when i dropped my gigabeat S30 it wasn't working n it was freezing and the video files weren't playing at all. it would freeze when i turn on or play video. then i turned it off and then back on using the battery switch. it said "contact the manufacturer for repair" with a yield sign. i really thought i killed it...but i still had my hopes high to fix it myself somehow n i really thought it was from the hard drive. so i took it in my hand and gave it a shake on my palm. like i actually hit it on my palm for once n then i turned it on and it worked =D fineee.... i was so happy n now it still works fine ;)

i hope that helps

Gigabeat Will Not Turn On - Battery Flashes Then Goes Dead


have you only been charging it with the usb cable?
try plugging it into a ac adaptor, (make sure the button is in the off position at the bottom)
and it should hopefully restart, then turn it to the on when it's loaded, and leave it plugged in till it's completely charged

that might work

Toshiba gigabeat


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.

Cannot view Gigabeat s30 as a drive letter (e.g. D,E etc)


Hey JayMac, Your s30 is not possible to map it to a drive letter. The reason ? cause your s30 and the other brothers of your mp3 are MTP class mp3's. Meaning that they are Media Transfer Protocol mp3's, so you can only transfer media files. If your mp3 player would be a USB Mass Storage Device, like alot of other mp3's, well you would've been able to recover you're files. But until now, the answer is no you can't recover the files just becauses of that stupid invention of Microsoft, the MTP.

Gigabeat wont Mount or Sync


Hi Ben, Make sure you have Windows Media PLayer 10 installed and working or download "Gigabeat Home" - that might help. Good luck. JayMac
