Question about Toshiba Gigabeat MEG-F20S MP3 Player

1 Answer

I have a Gigabeat V30

I have a Toshiba gigabeat V30 PVP/MP3 player. I am hoping to get help with problems I'm having replacing the hard drive. I swapped the hard drive with an 80GB version. I was hoping I would be able to format the drive, however the gigabeat only shows the following message now: "Update or restore Portable Media Center using PC application. Read User Manual." I assume the problem is that the drive has not been formatted. The giga shows up in My Computer, but I can't sync anything to it and it only shows 1 GB capacity. I have Partition Magic, but the giga doesn't show up. How can I format the drive? Will this solve the error message above? Is it possible to install Portable Media Center separately? If so, where would I find the program? Thanks for any help you can provide.

When you swap the hard drives did you copy the software (not music) from the old to pc.......this is the software that is needed to be on the(that you would have paste to the 80) before your place any other files on it.............

Driver files for Toshiba Gigabeat MES30VW

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard

I have the same problem. The thing is that you need a software that coverts your Mp3s to .sat I have looked forever now but havet found one still. I belive that you have to use a japanees software(according to my friend I got mine from).

Gigabeat ststem error message

I had the same problem - I fixed it by purchasing a Video iPod. The gigabeat HD is not very rugged and very prone to failure if dropped from even the most minor of height.

Iva (toshiba gigabeat 10gb)

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.
