Question about Toshiba gigabeat S MP3 Player
MES30V toshiba gigabeat. Ive had it for a year or so and when i went to add some more songs to it it would refuse to syncl. Ive formatted it then tried to sync the media library with it again but it will only sync a handfull of songs before it freezes. I really dont want to get rid of it so any help would be great.
I found this solution in another thread. It's kind of an ordeal but it did work for me. You will have to reformat your disk (lose all data) but you'll be able to sync again.

I gave up and chunked mine. Toshiba isn't offering any on-line support. The company acts like no of their previous players with a mini hard drive ever even existed. Additionally the Toshiba has gone exclusively to flash drive players. This indicates to me they know their products with mini hard drives were **** and gave up on them. So I did to.
I bought a Creative Zen 16gb flash player that accepts external chips. It's much smaller and lighter yet has a bigger screen, way, way, way better battery life and the sound quality is the BEST by far I've heard and I've listened to a lot of MP3 players (Samsung, Toshiba, Apple, Pogo, Sandisk). I'm not saying it is not without it's problems but there isn't an MP3 player out there that is perfect. It does lock up from time to time but simply push the reset button and it rebuilds the library and you're good to go. Most problems reported with the player relate to playing of video but I do very very little of that but have had no problems with the videos I transferred to the removable chip. If you buy one, order screen films and a silicone skin when you order. The biggest down fall of the player is that is scratches fairly easily. Comes in 4 gb, 8gb, 16gb, and 32 gb players and you have the slot for the chips where you can put additional music or the chips to hold different videos.
The Toshiba was a good player while it worked, but that was the problem. It wouldn't work too often and the repairs didn't always guarantee you much better results. Like I said, the fact that Toshiba gave up on them should tell you something.
