Default S60 will not connect with USB

Hello. I bought an S60 a good while ago, I think as far back as Jan '07. I used it and loved it for several months until I came across a problem. The USB connector stopped working. The device would charge from AC, but it would not charge from USB or connect to a PC. I tried numerous cables, computers, screaming at it etc, but to no avail. I looked on the web for a solution but nothing seemed to fit this problem. As I live in the UK and I ordered it through Amazon US, Toshiba won't offer me support. When I rang the relevant UK helpline, they claimed the model number didn't exist, and they'd never heard of a Gigabeat. Finally I gave up and put my Gigabeat away, with the mystery unsolved. A few days ago, I came across it again and now I'm wondering just what was the matter with it. I dug out all the gear for it, plugged it in through AC, and it booted and played just the same as when I left it. And sure enough, when I tried connecting it to my PC, there was no response from PC or Gigabeat, not even a charging symbol. I'm looking for a solution again and I thought I'd better post in case someone can help.

I'm glad I found this forum; I started to think the Gigabeat had disappeared from discussion after all this time.

Thanks in advance,
