I managed to fix this,
on the MP3Player there is a file created when you sync it with mpmanager,
this file tells the MP3Player where the songs and directory's are,
without the file DIR Navigation wont work as its reads this file

bottom line:
Use MPManager, dont drag + drop.

When selecting the DIR navigation option, tap the select (M) button very quickly. It will skip to a hierarchical view of your directories.

If you install the software that comes with unit, you will be able to donwload the manual.

Hello Elizabeth,

To transfer music to your player, connect your Coby MP600 to your computer using the supplied USB cable.

Once connected, your computer will automatically recognize the player as a Removable Disk.

??To open the player to view files, double-click the icon that appears.

Once you have opened the player's folder, simply drag and drop files to the player as you would a floppy disk.

??Copy music files to the root directory.

??Copy movie files to the "MOVIE.DIR" folder

??Copy photo files to the "PHOTO.DIR" folder

??Copy text files to the "TEXT.DIR" folder.

After copying the files, disconnect it properly and you are done.

I hope this helped you.

You can rate my answer if you appreciate my help.

The manual says first Directory is MUSIC.DIR what I see is MAC OSX where do I install my music??

You dont put it in any folder inside where your looking, just put it where you see the folders, there is a sample song already on the device, so it should go in this same location, just drag to the 'No Name' on your desktop.

I have movie, photo and text.dir but NO music.dir on coby 620 MP3 player. WTF? It's brandnew, Xmas gift.

I had the same problem. Plug the player into your usb on your computer. Bring up "my computer" and find the letter drive of your player. All the existing folders (movie.dir, photo.dir, etc) should show. NOW, while your still in this folder, use your toolbar on the top of your screen to click on "file" and then select "new folder". Carefully type in MUSIC.DIR, click enter and you have now created your own. I did this and it seems to work as it should. It is weird that mine didn't have a music.dir folder either! Good luck!

How do you simply just put files onto this i can get them on to the flash drive but it wont read them as music files

Turn on the player_slide power switch up_hold about 3 seconds, release

Silvania boots, then system Menu appears.

Select Music icon

Scroll with <> to highligh hidden MediaLib Update
player rebuilds Music media database used in player
use Dir List to open the browser. Navigate to location of your music files

Use Explorer Icon to browse directory list and use Delete button (square with X) to delete Selected file in Explorer view.

In My Computer, Use Properties to Name (Label) your drives. You see name given in My Computer, makes much easier to locate files. For easier browsing in Windows try a Toolbar for My Computer(XP) or Computer (Vista, 7) to browse your devices (I have a Computer toolbar on the taskbar of Every Computer I use)

Open SMPK8858 in my computer, you see RECORDING folder
This was the only folder on mine when I started, and Sealed, Brand New unit came with NO SOFTWARE and microscopic manual

Create new file structure for storing your PHOTOS, VIDEOS, Ebooks etc. Don't place everything in one folder, use logical folders to store your files. Drag and Drop FILES into your folders in my computer, or create a shortcut on desktop to access your device when connected.

Coby "MP605-4G" not doing anything

Copy mp3 files directly into the root directory. Don't copy them into the other directory's. You then should be able to see the MP3 files on your PC and your player.
