Question about Toshiba Gigabeat MEG201 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Toshiba Gigabeat 30gb

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.

SOURCE: Driver files for Toshiba Gigabeat MES30VW

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

SOURCE: Gigabeat room fails to recognize my Gigabeat

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.

SOURCE: Gigabeat Room Can't Detect Gigabeat on Vista

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.

SOURCE: Is transfer from Gigabeat to iPod possible?

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.

Can you transfer itunes music to the toshiba gigabeat?


Hi Gladys M Ortiz
Yes you can transfer your music to your toshiba gigabeat.
But you will have to convert the format first.,because Itunes uses a ACC format...you will need a WMA or MP3 format to play on your MP3 player.
Go to the following webpage and download your FREE format converter.

Sometimes when the Gigabeat's battery dies out fully with no life in it, you cannot recharge it via USB. You must use the AC connection to charge it. If you do not have the original charger, you can use a Sony PSP charger.

Computer does not recognize Gigabeat Device


the solution is simple. Simply Run both Gigabeat watcher and giga-room programs as administrator if u have windows vista.
How to do this :

Click on start in the taskbar at the bottom right of your screen,
then click on all programs,
then click on the Toshiba Gigaroom Folder,
then right click Gigabeat watcher and click on "Run as Administrator"
then right click "Gigaroom" and click on Run as Administrator

and then look in the bottom right of the taskbar, the little Gigabeat watcher symbol should be there with a green square instead of grey. If its green then it means Vista has recognised your gigabeat and u can now transfer music to it via gigaroom. i hope this helps people as i was on the verge of buying XP myself again... Peace all and HAPPY GIGABEATIN!
