    Same thing here. It's been going on for a while, I thought I'd google to see if I could find a solution. The thing functions except for the fact that the USB port seems to be busted or something. I charge it by plugging it into the wall, and I can't add or remove anything; I just use what I already put on there before the problem started.

    Me three! I have a gigabeat that works fine, but will NOT connect to my computer. I've download some stuff off www.gigabeatsupport.toshiba.com and still can't get it to connect to my PC! I'm about to throw this thing in the trash!

I have the same problem. If you have a large library try letting it stay hooked up for a long time. It seems like it is taking inventory of device then it should work after a while. Sometimes this works. Sometimes I have to unplug then try again in a few minutes.

How do I format my mp3 player


To format your MP3 player, you can plug it into your computer's USB port. When the computer detected the new usb device (your mp3 player), right click on your windows start button and click Explore. It will show you the start menu or the Windows Explorer. Look for the drive associated with your mp3 player, right click it and choose Format. That's it! Good luck.

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.

Battery is dead


Identical problem - working only with power cord.
Wont power on battery or usb cable.

I actually opened player and check every single option.
(I am experienced electronic - tech.)
Result: battery is fully charged (768 mA/ 3.97V on bench)
Battery switch on bottom fully functional. (switching on/off 3.97V
comming from battery)
USB supply 5.0 V in perfect order.
Conclusion:
There is no "EASY" fix for this problem.
It is either problem with firmware (low possibility)
or semiconductor on logic board (practically not fixable on DIY basis)

I bought my Gigabeat 60Gb for $ 70.00 used on Ebay so
I will live with this problem.

Doesn't work without cord! Battery switch is not responding at all.


There's a "hidden" switch on the lower part that makes it not use the battery. You can switch it with a pencil or pen.

Toshiba gigabeat MES60VK (60 GB) stopped working


There is a little battery cut of switch at the bottom of the device. You can unbend a paper clip and switch it off. Then switch it back on after a few seconds. Plug it back into the usb cable to charge it. It should work ok now.

Recovery problem


mallesh: There is a switch on the bottom left of the player, flick this switch to the left using a small screwdriver, then flick it to the right. Hold down the windows logo button, and hold the left button on the directional button. This will bring it into firmware recovery mode. Next download this file: Gigabeat S firmware. Follow the instructions and your player will be fixed.
llchuk: Try formating the storage media in Windows Media Player. If that doesn't work, update the firmware by downloading it from the link I posted for mallesh. It should work after the firmware update.
