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.

It will not boot up stops when it say detecting storage device


Remove the hard drive and put it into an enclosure. Plug it into another computer as a slave. Then you can copy your files on it.
If it shows up in 'my computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it, you can recover data from hard drive with data recovery program. Asoftech data recovery is a professional data recovery program that can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage, system sabotage, virus attack etc.

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.

On this menu you will find a selection that will allow you to stop the blue screen on the error. The error will tell you what the problem is. However from previous experience I can tell you that more than likely you will have to reinstall Windows. If you haven't backed up your data and need to recover it, It might be a good idea to setup the disk as an external drive or secondary (slave) drive on another computer, copy your data to a flashdisk or other backup device, reinstall your hdd as master/primary drive, boot to cd and reinstall windows. Have fun, let me know how it goes.

Could be a physical fault with either the hard disk or a damaged XP installation cd. I would disconnect the hard drive and connect it to another pc via an ide/sata to usb converter to see if you can read the disk and save your data. These converters can be purchased for under a tenner on ebay.

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.
