Question about Computers & Internet
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.

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.

How did you either create or locate the Giga Pocket Temp Folder? When I create a folder then I get an error which tells me "can't locte Giga Pocket program" reinstall from the CD

I had this problem and I renamed the GigaPocket V5 directory and restarted Giga Pocket. No more problems with GP666, now I just need to learn how to re-import the old videos into the cabinet.
