Question about Toshiba Gigabeat MEG-F20S MP3 Player

1 Answer

Toshiba Gigabeat S series 30GB

To whom it may concern,

I just recently bought an mp3 player (Toshiba S series) and for some reason when ever i turn it on, all i get in response is a white screen.

When i plug both the charger and the usb cable into it, it asked to be upgraded via the users manual, i have scanned though this manual for many hours and to no avail.

So im seeking your advice, i think the data cable that connects the mp3 player to it's interal hardrive has been disconnected, i have tried many times to fix it but it never seems to work. Advice advice advice would be much appreciated.

Im sorry that that happened... I wouln't know what to do. Personally I would give up, send it back, and get an Ipod...

It seems that you have spent alot of time working on it. Time that could have been spent listening to music.I suppose that if you really bent on having that devise i guess it was worth the time but i dont think that something like that should require a lot of work. If there is one thing for sure that it know is that you want to have all that music (or whatever you have on it) backed up on a seperate drive cause stuff like that might be a sign of the devise breaking down so be ready if one day it just doesn't work...

Sorry Bro

MES60VK Gigabeat - Dead

There is a switch on the bottom left side of the dock connector of the player. Flick the switch to the right and it should work. The switch is the battery cutoff switch. It is there so it will charge only. I have no idea why Toshiba though this was a good idea, but they put it there.

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.

If you reformated the mp3 player's hard drive, the problem probably is that it can't find it's firmware which is supposed to be located on it's hard drive. To fix this, simply copy the GBSYSTEM folder located (usually) in C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\gigabeat room 2.0.2 to your mp3 player's root.
