    I imagine MP3 files will play fine from the root directory. How do I get video to play? I saw there were some ~.mtv files in the MOVIE.DIR (they must have dissapeared on reset. I tried converting an AVI file to ~.mtv using the utility on the mini CD. I've yet to see a video actually play on the COBY. I'm told I'm better off getting a different device. I'd love to get the video to work. How do I get video to play?

What u need is the installation mini disc with that u can get the mp3 to covert your movie to the require resolution which the player can play, if u still have your user manual with u till will be easier to get everything to work. I have the same model as yours and it is working without trouble. If u want to upload videos simply plug your mp3 to the comp after u migth have converted the video to mtv 160X128 and drag the file into the envelope that say" DIR MOVIE, that's all, and u can watch your movies like me for fotos thesame process of burning

You need to use the conversion disk that comes with the player. upload whatever video file you want to put on your Coby player, make sure you set the resolution to 160x128, convert the file then copy and paste into the player itself. I had the same problem when I first got it, the Coby folder on my laptop said the movie file was there, but the player itself didn't. The Instruction Manual is key here, make sure you still have it. That's how I figured it out!

Copy mp3 files directly into the root directory. Don't copy them into the other directory's. You then should be able to see the MP3 files on your PC and your player.

HOW DO I UPLOAD MUSIC TO MY MP3 PLAYER


Hello Elizabeth,

To transfer music to your player, connect your Coby MP600 to your computer using the supplied USB cable.

Once connected, your computer will automatically recognize the player as a Removable Disk.

??To open the player to view files, double-click the icon that appears.

Once you have opened the player's folder, simply drag and drop files to the player as you would a floppy disk.

??Copy music files to the root directory.

??Copy movie files to the "MOVIE.DIR" folder

??Copy photo files to the "PHOTO.DIR" folder

??Copy text files to the "TEXT.DIR" folder.

After copying the files, disconnect it properly and you are done.


I hope this helped you.

I have a Coby MP620. It says to drag and drop files to the music.dir folder but I have no such folder. I have the movie, photo and text files but no music. I have no idea what to do next.


When your MP3 Player is connected to a computer, you may transfer music files to your MP3 player using your operating system's basic file management commands (i.e., copy-and-paste or drag-and-drop).Connect the Coby MP3 player to your computer through its USB adapter. Select "Open folder to view files" from the new device dialog box that pops up. If the new device dialog does not appear upon the hardware's connection, click "Start," click "My Computer" and right-click the Coby MP3 player's device icon in Windows Explorer .Click "Start," click "My Music" and open the folder containing the music you wish to transfer onto the Coby MP3 player. Drag and drop the music files or folders into the Coby MP3 player's open directory. Alternatively, you can highlight the music files or folders and click the "Copy the selected" link from the Files and Folders Tasks menu in the left column. Select the "Removable Disk" drive from the list of destinations.

I have a Coby mp601. When I go to Open the Players folder there is no Music.dir only dir for Movie, Photo and Text. How can I fix this?


You dont need a music folder, there is a sample song already on the player, you can put your music directly on the player (not in any folder). By default, there is no music folder, if you use the Coby Media Manager software, it will auto sync folder selections for you however.

I have movie, photo and text.dir but NO music.dir on coby 620 MP3 player. WTF? It's brandnew, Xmas gift.


I had the same problem. Plug the player into your usb on your computer. Bring up "my computer" and find the letter drive of your player. All the existing folders (movie.dir, photo.dir, etc) should show. NOW, while your still in this folder, use your toolbar on the top of your screen to click on "file" and then select "new folder". Carefully type in MUSIC.DIR, click enter and you have now created your own. I did this and it seems to work as it should. It is weird that mine didn't have a music.dir folder either! Good luck!

It wont work


When you go into "My Computer" and double-click on the icon of the Coby, it should display several folders.
Copy movie files to the “MOVIE.DIR” folder
Copy photo files to the “PHOTO.DIR” folder

Make sure the files you are transferring are the ones suggested by your user's manual.

Help put videos on my coby


Be sure that your player search in the right folder. For that, press the left arrow until you see MTPMEDIA, PHOTO, MOVIE and TEXT(may have the extension DIR after).Then, select MOVIE. You must find your videos after that.
