Rio confirmed that there are fundamental problems with the firmware update, some people reffer to it as the "upgrader bug" . You should get Rio to replace it for you, if you can't fix it with a firmware upgrade. when you talk to them, say you saw thousands of posts about this upgrader thing on the net, and you realize its a known issue. In full sympathy, SG ;]

I hardly can believe it. But it worked... I even felt silly hitting the back of my nitrus but then it worked again!!!!

I know this is an old post but in case other people have this same problem i want to tell you what helped me: (i know it sounds silly but everyone who has had this problem swears by it) just turn it off, give it a firm knock on the back a few times, and turn it back on. i swear, i had this problem and i tried fixing it the 'right way' and it didn't work, once i tried the 'wrong way' it was fine.

My coby mp 610 wont play all the music i have on it.

I use a different MP3 player, but I noticed that mine wouldn't play .AAC files, only .MP3 files. I upgraded the firmware of mine and then it played everything. I noticed there is a new firmware upgrade for the COBY 610, so that might be of help to you.

You can find it at the website by choosing 'Mp3 & Portable', then 'Mp3 & Mp4 Players', then your model 'MP610', from the support page. Or, here is the direct link to the file from Coby's servers.


Unpacking the zipfile from the Coby Website will give you a PDF file with instructions, and a program file to run.

Your music will be erased when you run this firmware update. The instructions suggest that even if your mp3 player won't startup properly, if you plug it into your computer you should be able to access it as a removable disk, and copy all your music to a temporary folder on your computer.

Here are the steps:

  1. Plug your MP610 into your computer.
  2. Copy all your music to a temporary folder.
  3. Disconnect your MP610 from your computer.
  4. Disconnect as many USB devices as possible from your computer (to simplify identifying the MP610 at a later step, and avoid damaging other devices by trying to load the MP610 firmware into them by mistake.)
  5. Run the Firmware Update program 'MP610 T LCD Firmware Update for file sys err.exe'
  6. You will see a screen with up to 24 numbered, empty boxes.
  7. Connect the MP610 to your computer. It will show up in one of the boxes.
  8. Once the MP3 player shows up, click on the Firmware Feature icon to start the firmware upgrade.
  9. After the firmware update is complete, you will receive a checkmark in the Firmware box.
  10. Disconnect the MP610.
  11. Close the firmware update software.
  12. Turn on the 610 to confirm it starts up and the display reads 'COBY'.
  13. Plug it back into your computer and copy your music back on to it.


I hope that helps.

My Philips SA52xx GoGear MP4 Player won't start up. It just starts starting up and freezes on GoGear, it also makes wierd crackling sounds when playing music... My Philips GoGear used to start up within 10...

if it has too many songs on it try deleting some of the songs off the player, and if thats not the case, stop using it for a few days then try to turn it on again

The radio on my Coby 610 turns off after 3 minutes of play

I don't think I am actually solving this, but I think I may have a reason why it is happening. I am having the same problem with the radio turning off after about three minutes (I, too, had to reinstall the firmware).
I think the system sees the player as "inactive" when in radio mode and shuts down after a few minutes of "inactivity" -- even though you are, in reality, listening to the radio. The exact same thing happens when you pause an MP3 you are listening to; the system will see the player as inactive (because the music is paused) and shut down after a few minutes.
Maybe there isn't anything in the system (firmware?) that can differentiate the inactivity of just listening to music coming in through an antenna and the inactivity of paused digital music?
Feel free to send this to Coby tech support and see what comes back.

Shutsoff, stays off problem...

Get the updated verison of the Philips Device Manager from Philips website, and then click on the Update button once you have installed the new Device Manager.

Several things to be wary of:
* a Philips player ending in "/02" is designed for use outside of the United States
* the SA5125 is incompatible with Windows Vista and Windows Media Player 11 without a firmware upgrade

Music not playing

Thank you for posting your problem on here. Have you attempted to replace the batteries in order to figure out if that will fix the problem? Another tip is to take out the batteries for a full minute, then put them back in. If that still doesnt work some time deleting a few items might also create a solution since the memory might be too full and not work at all.

If those still do not fix the problem you can always contact the manufacturer directly for any software updates that might fix this problem as well.

Let us know how things go!

FYI, my mobiBLU DAH-1500i 1GB unit wouldn't boot. It would start up the musical note logo and stay there. I had to hard-boot it with the little reset button. Then I connected the USB cable and "unloaded" all files, then used Windows to FORMAT the drive (FAT32). After that it fired right up and works fine. I might try to update or reinstall the firmware if it doesn't keep working. Good luck.
