Question about Coby MPC-683 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Windows XP Pro will not recognize Coby MP3 player.

When a family member connects his Coby MP-C683 MP3 player into the USB port of my laptop, My operating system (Windows XP Pro, SP3) doesn't seem to see the MP3 player. It use to. There is no icon in the taskbar or sound created when the MP3 player is connected to my laptop via USB port. Additionally, Windows Media player 11 doesn't see it either. I have tried connecting it to different USB ports on my laptop, but I am not having any luck. The MP3 player is displaying a computer icon on its screen when it is connected to my laptop, and it lights up. My brother has tried connecting the MP3 player to a different laptop (same operating system as mine), and he gfts the same results. Any ideas as to what the problem may be?

Computer (Windows XP) does not recognize the Coby MP-C7085 player


On the MP3 player, go to settings > system, put the USB mode to MSC, then reconnect to the computer, computer will read, the device is currently on MTP and your computer doesnt have driver so that is why its not recognizing.

Hello,

Having devices connected during reinstallation of the Operating System will lead to a faulty detection on the USB ports.
Connected devices will not be recognized.

How to get the USB ports functioning again:

>0. First disconnect all apparatus connected to the USB ports.

Step 1.1 will take a long time again, I'd prefer step 1.2:
1.1 Perform a new installation of Windows XP (the long way) or
>1.2 Delete all USB hardware in the Control Panel (the short way).

>2. Install the software for your device and perform an update.
Update Windows Media Player 11 and / or Coby Media Manager.

>3. Open the software WMP11 or the Coby Media Manager.
Connect the device and make a setup for connection in the
software you use.

When you need more help for software or hardware configuration, just add a comment.

Windows not Recognizing COBY MP705-8G


Make sure you have plugged your Coby MP3 player into a USB 2.0 port. The Coby does not support the USB 1.0 standard. If you are getting an error that "This device can perform faster..." your port is an older USB type. I have both types on my computer and the Coby would not install until I plugged it into my 2.0 port.

Hope this helps.

Pull Mp3 player out of the USB port. Walk directly to trash can. Discard immediately. Turn around and give yourself a swift kick in the arse for not doing this sooner. I've wasted hours on this as well.

Coby mp3 player isn't recognized by windows


Do you have Vista? If so, get the Vista-compatible software from coby's website - if they even have any

If you have XP:
Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

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.

Windows XP is plug and play, so it doesnt require any drivers on Coby's end. You need to do Windows Update to update your drive package, it seems you are missing the USB MASS STORAGE device driver.

Coby mp3 drivers not found for model mp-c683


Unless you are using Windows 98, you will not need one. Plug and play - the player is so old Coby doesn't really support it anymore. If you're experiencing a specific problem, post it here. If you're using Mac or Linux or Vista - forget about it - this player will not work on those systems.
