Question about Coby MP-610 MP3 Player
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)

SOURCE: No album Graphics
THe Operating system that runs the MP3 player (like windows runs a computer except it running a small music player) doesn't show album art it just shows the disc spinning

Quick setup guide:
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).
2. Make a connection with the computer and have the device charging for a long period, full load needs 8 hours. Make connection directly to the USB of the computer preferred at the backside of the computer.
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 ):
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.

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.
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:
I hope that helps.

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
