It should be a problem with the USB Cable or the Operating System which u have...... But as it is a Mass Storage Device you can just update the USB Drivers and that should fix the Problem......... Good Luck.........

The mp3 player won't turn on when i press play/pause


I had the same exact problem as you, and the only way to fix this is to return your Polaroid. I figured out that something goes wrong on the charging system and it dosent charge the battery at all, that explains why when you plug you player into you computer it starts working. You would be better off buying a high quality mp3 player.

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

It Reads It Differently


Hmm.... having not experienced this problem since I have an A: C: D: and E: drive I might suggest trying to figure out how to set your drive letter from E: to F:
Sorry I can't recall the process since I haven't set a drive letter in 10 years but try a google search on it something like "assign Drive letter"
Then once you understand the process plug in your MP3 and assign it's drive letter to F: (since most computers have the CD drive set as E: your system might get the idea that it's a CD drive instead of MP3) make note of process in case you need to repeat it the next time you hook up your MP3.
