Question about Coby MP-705 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Coby 705 8gb MP3 player isn't organizing files correctly.

I actually have two problems with this player. The first is when I edit information on songs in Windows Media Player, those changes don't show up on the player. For example, all the songs I ripped off a cd all say the name of a specific artist, such as REM for example, but when I load that cd in to the player, some of the songs say REM and some say Unknown Artist. Sometimes I change the song from pop to rock, or something like that, and hit "apply" and again, sometimes on the player things change back.

Also, the video conversion software that came with the player will not convert the files. It just immediately says fail.

    I'm having the same problem. Certain Artists when loaded in via Windows Media Player, Itunes, or even Coby's own media manager software, it drops the songs into the unknown artist category even though all the information is tagged properly and showing up in each of the players and in the properties section of the file. I wouldn't even mind fixing this manually but when I go into the device on my PC, it shows up as if everything were listed properly. Does anyone have an idea why this is happening or a way to fix this manually?

SOURCE: MY SANSA WONT PLAY SONGS, IT SHOWS ARTIST BUT STUCK IN PAUSE

Some songs are in the wrong format, or your DB is corrupt. Either way:
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to the Sandisk website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out.
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

SOURCE: All downloaded music is "unknown" artist, title etc.

Hey, I am not sure about ubunta but in Windows, you need a program that "tags" the MP3. Just google MP3 tag editor and you will find some programs that do this. Again, not sure about ubunta but give it a shot. What this program does is let you edit the MP3 to the fullest. Song title, artist, album, everything...Check it out....

SOURCE: Artist doesn't show up in "Artist"

You need to check the information on your computer.

Right click on the songs that are not showing up under artist and look at the info for them. If they don't have an artist listed, they will not show up on your ipod in the artist tab. You can add the artist name and then sync your ipod and it will update your music information for you.

SOURCE: Coby MP822 MP3 Player doesn't organize songs

Go to the coby site and download the coby media manager the one on the player is corrupt (http://www.cobyusa.com/?p=fix_mp822). Once you get that installed on you PC use it like Windows media player, theres a user guide that helps sync everything. By the way it will put all your music in a folder titled "music" move the music to the folder titled "audio" so you can use the touch screen music icon.

The mp3 player organizes by ID3 tag information, which is on the individual song. It unfortunately doesn't organize it any other way. Album art is not supported by the MP3 player. You can copy it over but it wont show, probably just see the default keyboard image. You can edit the ID3 information with a tag editor..the naming has nothing to do with it, most of Coby's MP3 players have no sort order for music outside of what I just explained.

I just had this problem as well. Find one of the files that is showing up on the MP3 player as "Unknown Artist" in your iTunes library. Right click that song/file and click "Get Info". You'll most likely find that the song is an "ACC Audio File" which happens often when you copy CDs or download from the iTunes Store. Close the info window about the song and then you can select the entire album or individual songs from your iTunes playlist that are showing up as "Unknown Artist". Once all the songs that you need are selected, right click again and select "Create MP3 Version". This will create a duplicate, however, so you'll want to go back to the main library in iTunes (or stay there if you are already there) and then remove the original "ACC" versions. You can, if you'd like, keep them on your hard drive, but you really don't need them because MP3 is the standard. From here you can remove those files from the Coby MP3 player and replace them with the new MP3 versions you have created in iTunes.
I hope this helps!

I need some instructions on how play it


1. Use Windows Media Player to put songs on your Coby MP3 player. Download songs in MP3, WMA, or OGG format from a legal downloading website. If the file is not one of the previously mentioned files, you must download a converter to convert the file to one of the correct files that can be played on Windows Media Player. Rip a song from a CD by inserting the CD and then click on the option to "Rip" the song to your library. Some Coby MP3 players do not need Windows Media Player to add songs, so be sure to check your user manual to see if there is an even simpler method.
2. Connect your Coby MP3 player to your computer using the USB connector that came with your MP3 player. The player will show up under the "Devices" option on your Window Media Player application.
3. Click on the "Library" option to view all of the songs stored on your Windows Media Player library. You can drag the song to the MP3 player in the "Devices" section, or you can right-click on the song and choose the option to transfer the song. In the pop-up box choose your MP3 from the drop-down menu and then click on the "Transfer" button.
4. Right-click on the MP3 player in Windows Media Player and choose the "Eject" option. Disconnect your MP3 player from your computer and turn it on. The song will now be available on your MP3 player. Press the bottom button to play or pause the song.
5. Add videos and pictures to your Coby MP3 player if it supports those files. The process is similar to transferring audio files. Plug your MP3 player into your computer. Open the photo file on your computer and drag pictures into the player. You can create folders to organize the pictures.

Files


What do you mean create files? The musical tracks ARE files. I would use Windows Media Player to transfer tracks (files) to the device - you can right click on songs and edit the id3 tag information to add more details, such as artist name, album name - then they will be more organized, and you can view them more easily.

Hi there! Your Ipod is an Ipod and your Coby is a Coby. If I am reading you correctly you want to move your favorites from your Ipod to your Coby. No problem...your Ipod is a file folder and your Coby is a file folder. Drag and drop to the Coby, They do not speak the same language.

How can i put songs in files


Organize them within Windows Media Player first by editing the id3 tags - it takes a long time, and THEN transfer them to the GoGear - you cannot organize them once they have been transferred.

Sometimes all you need to do for that is profile the songs. This organizes the songs into the correct catagories.
