I had the same problem, I transfered files already in AVI format and the player did not recognize them. I used the sofware that came with the player (AVI Converter, I think) to convert my videos to AVI and I selected that the program copy them directly to player ( the player has to be connected to your computer while converting the files, obviously) instead of doing it manually. At least that worked for me. Another option is to convert the videos to flash format (.flv). I don't know why the player reads those kind of files (as per the manual and GPX web page it's supposed to read AVI only) but it works. Hope this helps.

I dont know how to load videos and watch them on my eclipse mp3. every time i try to watch something...it says format error even though the video on my mp3 is in AVI format!


This is simply because the Eclipse MP3 player does not read .AVI formatted videos. The videos must be in .AMV format. A good way to convert your .AVI videos into .AMV is to use FreeAMVConverter located at the following link. http://www.amvvideoconverter.net/. You can use this to convert your videos to .AMV format and then they should work.
Hope this helped, NathanTaylor

My Coby mp601 8gb won't play the converted mtv videos, says "format not recognized", what's up with that???


Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses.

Hi.You see,i downloaded a video clip from youtube and changed the file to WMV.I put it in my coby mp3 player and then i try to watched on my mp3 but then it says:"Invalide file format".I really...


Youtube videos are usually FLV flies which are not compatible with WMV. You must convert the video using video conversion software. Renaming the file does not convert the format the video file format.

When I try to put a converted youtube video from MP4 to an AVI on this player it tells me its in an invalid format. I have 2 players one for music and one for videos. I can't remember how I did it last...


Make sure which formats the player supports. Avi is just the container and can have many formats . According to the specs the player supports wmv,avi and flv try converting the videos again but use a resolution of 220x176, it might help as the player would not have to scale the video down. I have also noticed that the transcend player MP860 had it's own converter software. Check if your friends have the MP860 or MP870 player and install the software off the cd and try converting the video files as the coby may support the same format.

What format do videos have to be in for this device?


Video files must be .AMV formatted to work on this MP3 player. Below is a link to an amazing converter. It’s FREE and will convert your entire file.

Once you have the video files formatted to .AMV


  1. plug your MP3 player into the computer
  2. Go to MY COMPUTER.
  3. Find your .AMV VIDEO
  4. Drag file to the Scroll Bar on the left, hold the file over the GPX DEVICE
  5. Two folders will appear under it. Put file into ALBUMS
To then access videos put onto the device. Hold the MODE BUTTON on your MP3 player until you are returned to your menu screen. Scroll to MOVIES and your videos will be there. :D To return to listening to music or looking at Pictures, hold the MODE BUTTON and simply select your desired destination.

How do i get my music videos to play with sound?


Video files need to be converted into AVI format before being uploaded to your MP3 player with the AVI converter software that was included on your MP3 player. Your MP3 player must be in USB Disk mode before transferring video files. Once the desired video files have been converted to AVI format they can be uploaded to your MP3 player with the Media Manager software that was also included on the Software Application CD provided with your MP3 player.

Trying to put realplayer videos on a gpx


You cannot do it directly. You have to convert the RealPlayer videos to AVI format first. Better to use the media converter program that came on the player's installation CD.
