Gigabeat F40 Frozen.
I had the same problem, would not work and when it did it kept scrolling. Trick is to take the front cover off, and see if the control then works. If so, there are two strips on back of the battery as spacers. I took them off, put back together and have not had a problem since!

Accidently formatted the disc...is there any way
Unfortunatley because you have formatted the disk everything is lost. When you format anything it completely destroys everything. I know this isnt want you would like to hear but i would appreatiate someone telling me the truth even if it was bad news.
Sorry i couldnt help
... i formatted my 40gb
Sorry I can't help you with your problem exactly, however I can give you a link to get the manual.
Click on download, towards the top, and find your model. They have the manual in there that you can download.
It's so hard finding support for these things. I've been having issues with 15 GB of my music disappearing on me :(
Anyway, good luck.
My gigabeat f40 will not turn on, also it will not
I don't know if you still have this problem, but it could be possible that your battery is worn out. I remember reading this in the manual a long time ago. You'll have to contact toshiba itself and get yourself a new battery.
Gigabeat won't connect to computer.
I was just having this problem after I installed a new operating system on my computer. I finally downloaded the full setup (updated as of march 2009 on Toshiba's website)
Click on product updates towards the top.
I downloaded and ran the full setup instead of the standard one I had on my computer previously. Also, I don't know if you have a similar problem, but eventually I was able to connect to the gigabeat room, but when I put it in the windows media player mode, my computer didn't detect anything. For that, I had to right click on My Computer, Manage, and then go under Device Manager (left). On the right, you'll see a list in which you'll find the toshiba gigabeat. If it has a yellow ? or ! then go ahead and right click on it and try to have windows detect the driver itself. That solved the second issue for me, and my computer was able to install the driver itself and now my gigabeat is at least detected properly and connecting to my computer.
My current issue is different now where 15 GB of my music is unplayable due to some library updating failure :(
Anyway, hope the earlier part solved your problem.
Also, make sure when you run the update firmware, you follow the instructions correctly. Good luck.
