Windows media player won't recognize Gigabeat device

As though they couldn't have made the Gigabeat more difficult to use and user un-friendly if they had designed it to be that way, it seems to be getting worse as my problem gets more and more agrivating and ilogical. When I want to sync my music from my PC to my Gigabeat I don't want to use the (pardon my french) shitty software provided by Toshiba that apears to be designed by a second grade student as it is bungling and confusing. I want to sync exclusively from WMP, so I must plug it into the dock and then plug the dock into my PC via USB cable for it to be recognized. This used to work up until a couple weeks ago when, all of a sudden, doing all of this wouldn't get my device recognized. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling the gigabeat room program, but that didn't work. I really don't know what to do anymore, and help resources are slowly draining my patience.

    I've had the same problem with WPM. It used to work and now it doesn't see it. I've changed the settings on the gigabeat to just WPM and it will come up with gigabeat room only.

    My S30 previously worked fine. Now WMP wont recognize it at all, though the PC does because when I plug it into the USB port it asks if I wish to Sync. About the only system change I've made recently was to install Vista onto a secondary drive and dual boot. Does anyone know of any fix or if it may be related to the dual boot install?

Ok, I figured out a solution on my own.

Remarkably simple - all I did was reformat the player again and then reinstall windows media player.

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!
