Question about Toshiba Gigabeat MEG201 MP3 Player
We had a ton of music downloaded from our CDs onto our gigabeat. Have had no problems until now. Just turned it on and it says nothing is on it. I still get the start screen etc. but nothing comes up under music. So, I tried to get the radio to work, it just gives me the "circles going around" and never proceeds to the setup screen. Does this happen when I maybe need a new battery or have I lost everything. Thanks for your help!!
If you stored music on a hdd it should be safe. If all else fails, remove the hdd and connect via usb to a computer to retrieve the music.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard

It seems to be a permissions thing. When you launch Gigabeat Room, right click and choose "Run as Administrator". The Gigabeat button is then activated in the room interface.

The key is to have the GB watcher run under XP mode and administrator rights. When you start up the GB Room right click on the program and run as administrator. It runs every time for me. I have the F20.

There are programs like sound taxi that will do it easily but they do charge for them. If all of the files are on your computer just add them to iTunes and they'll all transfer to your ipod. If not just transfer them from your Gigabeat to your computers music file. Add the file to your iTunes and then sync your ipod to your computer and all of your songs will be on your ipod. Unfortunately without paying for a transfer program you will loose all of your playlists and organization files.
