Question about Coby MP-610 MP3 Player

Open Question

Won't play .wma files

I recently purchased a COBY mp3 player (mp-610) and transferred several albums onto it. It will only play a handful of the songs, and all the rest it states: File format not supported. They are all .wma files, from several different movie soundtracks that I bought.

I can't figure out if I need some sort of update/driver, or if I need to change the format of the songs themselves. (I have Windows Media Player 11 for Vista)

    Plays some mp3's, then says 'unknown format' for about 60% of the files on the player. Please advise.

Manual:

Quick setup guide:
http://www.cobyusa.com/files/setupguide/MP610_SG.pdf

File system error refers to incomplete startup often due to low battery, faulty firmware or not matching files in the player.

When the startup failed try point 1.Resetting and 2.Charging:

1. Try to reset using the reset button hole on the backside (8).

When using a laptop see to it that the USB is powered: laptops often switch the USB off going to sleep op hibernate mode.

When this didn't solve the problem, perform a format and reinstall of the firmware, point 4 - 8:
4. Connect the player to the computer and backup your data to the computer using the Windows explorer: copy MUSIC, MOVIE, PHOTO and TEXT directory to a location on the computer.
5. Format the removable disc of the player in Windows explorer.
Check your removable disk having its full memory capacity free after format.
6. Download the firmware for the player: firmware download for MP-610 ( zip file ):
http://www.cobyusa.com/files/software/MP610_Firmware.zip
7. Unzip the file: once unzipped there's a pdf instruction added in the zip file how to perform the firmware update.

8. After the firmware reinstallation the player is ready for transferring
data again. Remember the requirements for the format of files that is put on the player.

SOURCE: 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 cobyusa.com 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.

ca041a9.jpg

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.

SOURCE: i can't put music or video into my mp-610 4G black

I bought one for my sisters as well and I thought it would be a better mp3 than my zodiac machspeed because the brand is more well known but I was mistaken. When I used the coby manager to transfer all 800 songs; I disconnected it from my pc and in the coby music library it only showed half of those songs. So I decided to use windows media player but it was worse because it only gave me 100 something possible songs. So it could be that the format of the songs you have aren't supported by the coby or maybe it's just defected. I'm disappointed with this COBY

What am I doing wrong with transferring audio files to the player and how can I transfer WMA audio files to the Coby MP-620 MP3 Player?


I know from reading the user manual that it is meant to play WMA
files but you may have to use the coby media manager to convert the files to mp3 or possibly to wma ( that the player can read )
I have similar problems with mp3 files that do not play in my car mp3 player .

How does ebookes work on the coby mp3


E-books are text files with the extension .txt: Data that can be read on the computer with the Notepad.
Transfers from computer onto the player can be made by exploring the computer and to copy the desired script e.g. "MyText.txt" into the folder "TEXT.DIR".
Text files can be read in the E-book mode of the MP-610 afterwards.
