Inside the Gigabeat MEGF10
Hi guys! I have oppened my
Gigabeat MEGF10 for maintenance.
I can`t send it to Toshiba`s Assistance because they are in Japan,
and I live in Brazil.
My gigabeat only loads half way and it gets
frozen and my computer
does not recognize the drive. So please if you know something to do about
this I would really apreciate that. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
