    My Gigabeat is doing the same thing but I tried to turn the battery on and off then turning the Gigabeat back on. I did this but it kept saying system error. Thus I did it again and it progressed to saying "NO SYSTEM FOUND ON HDD"

    Please help.

    Try reinstalling the frimware on the player. Athough it will delete all the songs on it.

    Yeah, she's having the same problem.
    And not only that, but her battery life is also dead to the max.

    PLEASE HELP ME!

    I can't live without my Gigabeat.

    What I ended up doing was just calling the manufacturer and told them what had happened and apparently all you need to do is to reinstall the firmware. But make sure you have the newest one and if you bought the gigabeat (like I did) with like version 1 frimware and gigabeat room make sure you get the manufacturer to mail you the newest version. I did all this for free and my gigabeat has been working great

    ***Toshiba Gigabeat FIX ****Tech Support

    Just install your software that came with your Gigabeat. After installation please run the following program. Start/Programs/Toshiba Gigabeat Room/Formatting Utility for Gigabeat. This will place all the files back in the hard drive. Please do not format this unit from My computer to the drive letter. You end up deleting the system and boot files. Thanks Warren
