My Gigabeat S series always loads up with a screen that says: 'To recover from an error, the portable Media Center will restart and remove all media items.' I press on the 'OK' button and then connect it to a computer, it doesn't read. I can't syncronise anything and when I check the contents of the media center it says 0 GB used and 0 GB free... I don't understand it. I've tried several other computers and it still does the same thing. How can I fix this. It was fine before.

your MP3 Player into computer.Download a data recovery
software to recover your photos.For data recovery program,I have used Tenorshare Data Recovery.It can recover data after deeply
scanning your media player to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted. By the way,you can
download it and scan your MP3 player for free to preview whether your
photoscan be recovered.Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm
I just solved the same problem yesterday. When you download the firmware, save it to yur desktop and burn a CD because the gigabeat won't get it unless there is an actual CD in the rom.
Now, connect the gigabeat to the computer and let the firmware install. The unit will automatically restart twice. Here's the tricky part. You have to hold down the start button on the device until you see the start screen. (It took awhile for me to figure that out!)
After I saw the start screen, I saw that all my files were there! YAY
So, what happened when you connected the thing to sync with a PC and rightclicked on the tool-tray item for the Gigabeat? Maybe you got a menu about Upload Portable Media Center? If not, go into applications and see if the gigabeat stuff doesn't happen to contain the bespoken user manual. Open it...read it.... Usually there's a little button-sequence to prepare the player and another to restore the Portable Media Center program. Happy discovering.
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.
when you swap the hard drives did you copy the software (not music) from the old to pc.......this is the software that is needed to be on the(that you would have paste to the 80) before your place any other files on it.............
