Hi. To upload files from your E260 to your computer, you can do the following: Step 1: Browse the player on your Windows Explorer. Under "Windows Explorer", your player should appear as an icon under "Portable Audio Devices" or as a "Removable Drive" with a corresponding drive letter. This really depends on the mode your player is in -- MTP or MSC mode. Step 2: Set your Windows Explorer to "Show Hidden Files or Folders". The folder containing your music files on the player is a hidden folder, so make sure you go to "Tools" menu on your Explorer window, then select "Folder Options", then select the "View" tab, then enable the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button Step 3: If your player is set to MTP, you would find the sub folder called "PPI NAND". Open this folder and you would see a list of sub-folders, one of which is labeled "Music". Open that and you would see your music files If your player is set to MSC, open the drive letter corresponding to your E260 and you see a list of folders, one of which is labeled "Music". Open that and you would see your music files. Step 4: Select the music files you want and copy them to your local hard drive I hope the info helps.

    Sorry, but I forgot to include the info on how to switch the E260's modes (lol). Here it is:

    Switch the player's mode by navigating the menu as follows:

    Menu > Settings > USB Mode

    You should get a choice of MTP or MSC.

    For a Rhapsody player, you would get a choice of "Plays for Sure" or "Rhapsody". If that's the case, "Plays for Sure" is the same as MTP and "Rhapsody" is the same as "MSC".

Can't upload music on my t-sonik 840


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

My coby mp705 wont turn on but when i plug it to my computer it works.. what kind of assistance shall i do to make my coby back to normal? any kind of answer would be wonderful


sounds like the battery is the problem if it wont start wothout a power source

Check the system requirements for the MP3 player.

Most Coby players require Windows XP or higher and at least 1 GB of RAM to function correctly.


Check your Coby owner's manual to ensure that your machine meets all the required specifications before proceeding.


Charge the MP3 player fully.

Often, a player will act unexpectedly if it has a low charge.

A charge can also help reset the MP3 player if it has frozen or locked up.


Once the player has finished charging to 100%, see if the problem persists.

Re-sync your player.


Plug the MP3 player back in to the computer and then remove all the files.

If you have not done so already, make sure they are backed up to your hard drive.


Unplug your MP3 player and then re-load all of your files.

Check for corrupted and wrong format files.


Most Coby MP3 players only play back MP3 files, and will perform unexpected operations

if files of other formats are uploaded to the device.


Go through your uploaded files and check the extensions.

Anything that does not say ".mp3" or is not listed in your owner's manual needs to be deleted from the device.


hope this helps

My PC no recognizate buslink inUSB and how can i recording music from my PC ,need other sowtware or something else ?


As far as I know you cannot record music from your PC. You can however use recording software (like windows sound recorder) to record wave files (WMA) and upload these to your mp3 player. Most players have onboard converters to convert to mp3 whilst uploading. Or you can download mp3 files form the internet and upload to your player. If your player is not appearing in "My Computer" when connected to the USB port, you have a different set of problems which could require you to fromat the player to FAT32.
