Remove the metal HDD Brace (located inside the case, near the top of the player, close to the HDD ribbon) by removing two screws. This will give you access to the HDD ribbon PCB connection. Open this and remove the HDD. Gently hold the loose connection and apply steady pressure to the loose end. It should slide back into place. Reassemble the player and try to boot.

If after all this you need to replace the HDD, it's original HDD is a MK3008GAL if it's 30gb, or a MK6008GAH if it's 60gb. However, it will work with any 1.8" HDD with a ZIF connector. Try ebay for a replacement.

Getting the player files may be tricky - you may have to find another user of the gigabeat S, I own the F and I'll attach my GIGABEAT file if you like. I'd try the forums for the files.

After saying that, I found the firmware :P
