Title: My Gigabeat F40 stuck on the "system error" screen after formatted on a Win10 PC
Post by: samsiu2009 on January 21, 2018, 03:21:07 AM
I just bought a used Toshiba Gigabeat F40 from a guy on Craigslist. It was working fine ,but I wanted to delete all the songs on the player, so I did something silly,I formatted the F40 with Windows 10 NTFS quick format. So ,the F40 now has nothing on it .I found out I deleted the OS and bootloader. Now,I cant boot up the F40 ,and it always stuck on the "system error" screen. My computer can detect the F40 as an USB drive. Can anyone help me to restore the F40? If anyone has the original firmare  GBSYSTEM folder with bootloader (FWIMG001.DAT) , please kindly send to me or reply to this message ,thanx!

You will also have to reformat to fat32.
