Question about Toshiba gigabeat S MP3 Player

1 Answer

Recover from error

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.

    Says "to correct an error all media will be deleted". Still shows as having only 11 free gigs on computer, but shows up as a new device. Turned off the battery, but still not working.

Connect 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 photos can be recovered.Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm

Gigabeat erased all music -- how do I get it back?


You can't recover deleted files, you must reload with music from your computer.

Gigabeat S Series firmware restore


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

Help!!!


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.

Cannot view Gigabeat s30 as a drive letter (e.g. D,E etc)


Hey JayMac, 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.
