It might be that the chips inside is damaged. If it is still under warranty, just send it back there.

Hi,

I would try setting up RockB\box on your Gigabeat. Their port is not quite 100% but its very nice. I use it on my S60 and its very stable for me.

Sounds like a built in glitch ... You might want to take it back under manufacturer's warranty and get a completely different MP3 Player/iPod, because it sounds like a scamming item - for $400 I'd demand answers.

It may sound a bit cheeky, but I find reputable models, like Goodmans, JVC and Sony work without a problem, and buying cheaper models with mass GB space would seem a bit too good to be true.

i'm thinking the hard drive is messing up... you know when i dropped my gigabeat S30 it wasn't working n it was freezing and the video files weren't playing at all. it would freeze when i turn on or play video. then i turned it off and then back on using the battery switch. it said "contact the manufacturer for repair" with a yield sign. i really thought i killed it...but i still had my hopes high to fix it myself somehow n i really thought it was from the hard drive. so i took it in my hand and gave it a shake on my palm. like i actually hit it on my palm for once n then i turned it on and it worked =D fineee.... i was so happy n now it still works fine ;)

i hope that helps

My Creative Zen mp3 player is stuck on Recovery mode , and keeps on saying filmware problem. I have tried to reset, push power button down and push play button at the same time. I also tried Clean-Up Format and reload filmware.

Nothing has worked, and I am about to throw it out the window.

Please if you can help me.

Thank You

I left the Gigabeat on until the battery ran out. It then turned itself off automatically and allowed me to re-charge the battery. When I turned the Gigabeat on, it again worked perfectly,

that's an indication that the media center program has loaded but frozen at a certain point [blue screen] before fully loading.
indicates a hard drive problem... prolly the head can't read the hard drive...did you drop it?
cuz when i dropped it...that happened to me...it froze on the menu...then i used the battery button to turn on n off..till i got the "contact the manufacturer for repair" with a yield sign message. i really thought i killed it...but i still had my hopes high to fix it myself somehow n i really thought it was from the hard drive. so i took it in my hand and gave it a shake on my palm. like i actually hit it on my palm for once n then i turned it on and it worked =D fineee.... i was so happy n now it still works fine ;)

i hope that helps
