Computer does not recognize coby mp705

I have plugged my coby mp705 into my computer via the usb cable. It charged, but my computer does not recognize it. My computer briefly shows the symbol for something being connected via usb port, but then it disappears. The manual says to open "My Computer" and that the device will be listed under "Audio Devices", but there is nothing.

y can't install the driver

    Hi Lynn, here's a quick and simple way to accomplish a relatively
    clean black tank in short order.

    After your black tank has drained, and while leaving the black valve
    open, lift a section your slinky hose higher than the sewer outlet
    and hold it there. While holding that section above the outlet, open
    your grey valve and allow the grey water to rush into the black
    tank. As the two tanks get near equal levels, the rush will slow
    down. When you hear that, close the grey valve, lower that section
    of hose and allow everything to flow out of the black tank again.

    You can repeat this as long as you have liquid in the grey tank since
    water always seeks it's own level. As long as the grey water is
    higher than the black, there is no chance for black to flow into grey.

    After two or three of these grey water flushes, your black tank will
    be as clean as it gets. Been doing this for many years and saves a
    lot of time at the dump station for me and those behind me.

    ooops, I am so sorry, I accidentally copied and pasted the wrong information!!!!

    A million apologies!

    I have the same problem. I found that if I do put the player on "Hold" that it will keep the player mounted to my PC but as soon as I remove it from Hold it disappears from my PC.'

    Certainly this cannot be the solution?????

You know the hold button on mp3 player? while connected to the computer, move it to the left until it says hold and it stays there... or if its already on hold move it to the right until its stuck on start symbol

or move it to the right and left vs left or right..

it worked after i played with it for a while...
now if you wait 30 seconds it may or may not reappear :o

Try to reset it if possible.
If the computer charges it then the computer recognizes it as a connected device. That's how usb works. It could be you need a new USB cable. Many devices that use USB for charging do not have the data leads connected in their cables. This is called a "vampire" connection as it only sucks 5 volts DC from the computer/charger .

Cant download music on my mp3


Hello, for media transfers onto the MP705 you can use either Coby Media Manager software or Windows Media Player 11.
(For fitting video, use the Video Converter software on a computer first.)
Manual for the MP705.

0. Install and update software for transfers on the computer.
1. Open the software program and connect the USB cable between the
player and the computer, to get the device detected in the software.
2. Create a playlist in the software.
3. Synchronize the playlist.

How to use the software Coby Media Manager or WMP 11, look in the Setup Guide.

If this was helpful or when needing more help, I'd appreciate your comment.

Hi, go to the Setup menu, then to System, then USB Mode. You can select either MSC or Auto; try MSC first. I've noticed the same problem with my computer, and I can get around it by changing that setting. If it doesn't work on MSC then switch to Auto. Worth a try!

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.

Just drag files from Windows Explorer to device make sure that when you open up device that there are the categories: music, pictures, video, playlist. Drag video to video on device, drag ebooks to playlist. Also, confirm this with Coby Media Manager.

Can I charge my Coby mp705 using a AC adapter?

Yes you can but you need to find a 3.7(whatever the voltage is) and the right size. Its risky. But at wal mart they sell this usb charger. U plug it in to the wall outlet and it would act like your computer usb slot.

Coby MP705 not being recognized by computer.

You need to plug it into a USB 2.0 port. The 1.0 (or 1.1) standard does NOT work.

Unable to charge unit (brand new)


Are you on a laptop? Only possible issue is that with laptops, most have a feature which disables the power on the USB ports if not used frequently..besides that, if you plug the unit into the USB port, it should charge, if not, you have a faulty battery.

Coby accepts gifts for warranty, they just need a letter head showing you received it as a gift and they will replace the unit, see below for requirements:

What you need to send:

$6 Money Order -Made out to 'Coby Electronics' 'return shipping fee'
Letterhead showing you received unit as a gift
Note with your name, address, phone#, description of issue
Unit with all the accessories

Send to:
Coby Electronics
