Question about Coby MP-C941 MP3 Player

A USB problem with the Coby MP-C951 (model not listed on this site)

I can't seem to connect this to any computer via usb. When I turn it on it says "HDD read error." Tech support told me I need to format the player to get rid of this message, but I can't connect it to my computer to do that. I use Windows XP and its not recognizing it. Any suggestions? Thank you for your help

Computer does not recognize coby mp705

you know the hold button on mp3 player? while connected to the computer, move it to the left until it says hold and it stays there... or if its already on hold move it to the right until its stuck on start symbol

or move it to the right and left vs left or right..

it worked after i played with it for a while...
now if you wait 30 seconds it may or may not reappear :o

remove the device, swear a few times, promise your son you'll buy him a proper ipod, then give it to the dog to play with.
