Question about Toshiba gigabeat S MP3 Player

1 Answer

File transfer Problem

When I try to transfer files from Windows Media Player to my gigabeat, I create a sync list, open the sync list in the 'transfer to device' window, and hit copy. It copes all of the files without error. The right hand pane showing the contents of my player contains all of the music from the sync list. It will even tell me how much space it is taking up. But when I actually unplug the player from the usb and turn it on, there is no music on it. It just says 'no items ot display'

Is this a gigabeat problem or a Windows media Player problem? My player is a Gigabeat MES30VW, can I use Gigabeat Room as an alternative?

Ok, I figured out a solution on my own.

Remarkably simple - all I did was reformat the player again and then reinstall windows media player.

Although in my travels I came across an article which may help users with a similar problem: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/911091/en-us#appliesto

How do i upload music from my pc to gigabeat 40gb i pod


To transfer music files to your gigabeat, simply connect it to the PC via USB cable. A gigabeat window will pop up on your screen and will direct you to WMP 11 (make sure to click the "Complete" button, or it will not take you to WMP 11). Once you're in WMP 11, assemble the list of music you wish to transfer and press "Sync". The program will automatically begin transferring data to your gigabeat.

How do i copy music to my mp3


You can sync your music and pictures to your player using Windows Media Player.


By default, Windows Media Player automatically loads all the music and picture files

stored in your My Music and My Pictures folders into the library. If you add new files to
these folders, they will also be automatically added to the library.


If Windows Media Player has selected to sync your device automatically, you can choose not to sync your entire media library. You can choose what you wish to sync from existing

playlists or create new playlists. These playlists you have selected will then sync to your player every time you connect it to your computer.


1 Click the down arrow beneath the Sync tab and select Philips GoGear SA60xx > Set Up Sync.

> The Device Setup dialog box appears.


2 In the Available playlists pane, select the existing playlists you want to sync and then

click Add.

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.

You can use the Media transfer software that comes with the player, or hilight and drag the files from Limewire into Windows Media Player, then open up the sync tab and make a list and hit sync. If you do this, make sure that the file is not being played on Limewire. You can ensure this by hitting the stop button on the Limewire Media Player, or playing a totally different song by double clicking the file in your Limewire Library.
