This one took me a while to figure out as I had the same problem.

The answer is rename/delete the D:\GigaPocket directory and restart GigaPocket. It will regenerate the directory and will work fine....or at least mine did.

Have fun

After a long time of suffering problems with Giga Pocket randomly failing to load and having to re-install the whole thing time and again, I have at last discovered a solution. The main culprit is USBSIRCS.EXE failing to run at startup.
If Giga Pocket 'hangs' then check to see if USBSIRCS.EXE is running, by pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL and looking at Processes. If it is not then that is almost certainly the cause of the problem.
The solution is simple. Locate the USBSIRCS folder in c:\program files\sony.
Now copy each of the .dll files in that folder to c:\windows\system32.
Make sure USBSIRCS.EXE autoruns at start-up by checking MSCONFIG. If no entry is there, paste a shortcut to the program in the Startup folder.
If your Giga Pocket stops displaying video, do the above and either re-boot, or once the steps above have been completed, and you have closed the non-functioning Giga Pocket program, just double click on USBSIRCS.EXE and GIGA POCKET should then work immediately.

Wingblur's Solution #3 posted on Aug 20, 2008 works! Rather than delete or rename the existing folder (D:\GigaPocket) I moved it into a "Temp Folder for Giga Pocket" folder. Then restarted GigaPocket and no more GP666 database error!! This was definitely a 4-star "FixYa" !!!!

Here is the perfect fix. Sony's GigaPocket software wants to load the main program on your C drive but must have a D drive to install the (example) D:\Giga Pocket V5 folder (which is where the video capsules are stored). The reasoning behind this is to help your C drive run more efficient and faster by storing large recorded video capsules on a different drive other than the C drive. If you want to reload this program back on your system because, say maybe you got a larger/newer hard drive, you'll have to partition the new drive to accept this necessary folder (which is the database for Giga Pocket) or you will continue to receive the GP666 error message. It will work just like it did on the old hard drive. Good Luck.

Most of the boot up of problem because of hardware problem, registry missing or crashed, file deleted or changed.
You can boot up your Windows with Tenorshare Data Recovery WinPE.It allows users to burn ISO file to CD/DVD/USB flash drive directly.
Step 1: Download Tenorshare Data Recovery WinPE in any available computer (not from PC that can't boot up). Then launch it.
Step 2: Insert CD/DVD/USB flash drive to the computer, choose ISO image file. Here we take USB flash drive for example. Then burn ISO file into flash drive.
Step 3: Insert the burned flash drive to the unbootable PC. Run computer and press "F2", "F10" or "Delete" to enter BIOS setup.
Step 4: Use the arrow keys to select Boot tab, select Boot Device Priority and press Enter. Please choose 1st Boot Device to USB, and then press F10 to save setting. Now,you can boot up your PC.
If you have a backup for your Windows then perform a system restore to fix it.If not,reinstall it.If you have no backups for all your data,you can use Tenorshare to retrieve data under any boot up problem.You can get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverywinpe.htm
Here is tutorial to guide you how to do --How to Recover Data from Computer Won't Boot Up?-Windows Data Recovery.

NTLDR is missing is displayed when i turn on the computer


The "NTLDR is missing", error displays very shortly after the computer is first started; after the Power On Self Test (POST) is complete. Windows XP might only initially load when the NTLDR error message appears. Causes of this error message include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose IDE cables.
Get more help and information for Windows XP hope this helps you.

Having a problem with dimension 3000 destop. I turn on the computer and it will proceed to the XP loading screen then the picture will go black and won't return. Using AOC 23inch monitor.


A critical file needed for the launch of XP is missing. To see it can be recovered try to boot in Safe Mode. If you can the reinstall all the drivers and check every program for errors - launch them and see how they behave. If you can't boot in Safe Mode the the only thing left is to reinstall.

Re-Loading Software


Since they installed a generic copy of xp, there are none of the sony installed add-ons present on the computer. go here to view the available downloads for your system provided by sony, you will have to select the "EVERYTHING" tab to see the giga downloads if it does not load there.
Otherwise you will have to contact sony for a recovery disk specific to your system.
