Question about Coby MPC-848 MP3 Player
Well I got one of these Coby MP3's and I had no problems with it up until now. One night I tried to change my songs but when I got on Windows Media it showed I had no device connected. The little balloon in the bottom right corner popped up saying "Found New Hardware MTP Device" as it did the first time I got songs from W.M. but this time it wouldn't show up. I closed the balloon and it popped up again and again repeatedly every time I closed it. Now when I remove the MP3 player it says in the balloon "Found New Hardware, A problem occurred druing hardware installation. Your new hardware might not work properly." And worst of all it already removed ALL my songs that I DID have on there so now I have no songs and no way to get them on. Please help.
What is happening is the computer keeps on trying to install the hardware which u have recently plugged in but haven't installed. since it cant find the files it keeps on trying.. the best thing to do is to remove the hardware which it is trying to install in this case.. the MTP device . THE SOLUTION is to remove it;
1 right click on my computer then
2 on properties then
3 hardware tab in the tab click on
4 device manager (youill see that it keeps on refreshing the lists of hardware)
5 uninstall the hardware who's software is not installed (in this case select mtp device)
6 after the successful uninstall you should be GOOD
Hope it Works...

I finally figured it out. Go into the menu of the COBY and go to settings, go to USB Mode and change it to MSC. Then, pop it into the USB port and load away!

I would change the songs a different way. I change them by going to My computer and opening the icon that shows the MTP player. Then it has a Media folder, click and drag songs from your Music folders opened on a seperate my documents or my computer window. I never liked using Windows Mecdia in the first place!
