GigaPocket – Are You Unable to Reinstall Your GigaPocket Software?

You can not install a GigaPocket application after replacing your hard disk. You have some application recovery CD's. However, GigaPocket will not initialize and start.

An error message tells you that a "data base may be damaged". What's a fix you ask? Your computer is a Sony with original video card installed to a cable converter.

You have reinstalled a GigaPocket application. You may receive "(GP666) Cannot launch Giga Pocket because the Giga Pocket database might be damaged" error message.

You can browse with Windows explorer to see if there is a C:\GigaPocket directory. If that directory exists, please rename it or delete it and try starting GigaPocket. It should be recreated when starting GigaPocket software and might fix your issue.

Another issue that may cause this error is if you have a second hard drive where your video files for GigaPocket are located and this program is looking for them on your C: drive. You can use Windows disk manager to make sure that program files are located on C: and video files are located on D:.

In Windows, check if your drive shows in "Disk Management". To get to disk management, right click "My Computer" and choose "Manage". Disk management is on the left under "Storage".

Right click a drive, that you want to assign a drive letter to, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Click Change. Click Assign the following drive letter if it is not already selected, click the drive letter that you want to use, and then click OK.

Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the drive letter change. It is recommended to assign C: and D: as your hard drive letter assignments. Assigning C: and F: as hard drive letters and then having D: as an optical drive could cause issues as GigaPocket may look for program files on C: and video files on D:.
