Question about Toshiba Gigabeat MEG-F20S MP3 Player

1 Answer

Gigabeat F20 and Windows Vista

I have a Gigabeat F20 and have now purchased a new Toshiba laptop with Vista. However, my gigabeat is not compatable with Vista. Updated the firmware to a newer version. Hate it. Sound quality has now changed. How do it get it back to the original firmware and how can I get the Vista to recognise my F2? Went out and bought a IPOD. Sound quality is horrible compared to my Gigabeat. Can anyone help me solve the problem to get back to the original firmware and be able to use Vista with it. Sure hate to use that awful IPOD!

Toshiba Gigabeat doesn't work


hi there,
looks like the player is asking for a firmware update.perhaps u accidentally erased parts of it beforehand and now it is a bit on the blind side..
nevermind, get the latest firmware(gigabeat room 3.0) here:
http://www.toshiba.co.th/download/support.html

and find more info on the giga here:

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.

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!

Gigabeat and Vista


I hate to say it, but nothing can be done about your situation. I am having the same problem. It is a fight between Microsoft and Apple. I even own a new Toshiba laptop and can't even use my gigabeat with it. What a huge slap in the face. I don't understand why the technology world work with one another to make consumers happy. Sorry for the bad news
