So, what happened when you connected the thing to sync with a PC and rightclicked on the tool-tray item for the Gigabeat? Maybe you got a menu about Upload Portable Media Center? If not, go into applications and see if the gigabeat stuff doesn't happen to contain the bespoken user manual. Open it...read it.... Usually there's a little button-sequence to prepare the player and another to restore the Portable Media Center program. Happy discovering.

You use the software that came with it, the gigaroom. If you don't know how. go to this website http://www.giga-style.com/
its the website of the gigabeat. in the ssupport section you can download the manual.
Your s30 is not possible to map it to a drive letter. The reason ? cause your s30 and the other brothers of your mp3 are MTP class mp3's. Meaning that they are Media Transfer Protocol mp3's, so you can only transfer media files. If your mp3 player would be a USB Mass Storage Device, like alot of other mp3's, well you would've been able to recover you're files. But until now, the answer is no you can't recover the files just becauses of that stupid invention of Microsoft, the MTP.
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.
