I'm not quite sure if you're trying to add music to folders in your player or if you're trying to play them from the folders.

If you are trying to play from folders, you need to turn the player on and on the main menu there should be a folder icon. Select that and look for the folder that contains the mp3s you wish to play.

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.

Not enough space


Hello. You will need to delete a few tracks from your MP3 player to in order to add more songs.

Simply select the songs you wish to delete, right click, and click "Delete" or "Move to Recycle Bin"

To select more than one song at a time, you can multi-select by selecting one song, holding down Ctrl on your keyboard, and selecting the others until all songs you don't want are selected.

1 Gb is rather small, coming in at about 1024 Megabytes. The average cd quality Mp3 file is around 3.5 to 5 megabytes in size.

1024 / 5 = 204.8

This means you will only be able to fit around 203 high-quality mp3s on your player at one time, and will periodically need to delete and replace them as your music library gets larger.

With these smaller capacity mp3 players, it is often handy to arrange your music library into small folders on your computer so that you can simply clear the player and drop in the contents of one folder. You can even monitor how many files are in each folder to ensure you don't run into this problem often.


I hope this was helpful. -

I deleted the music folder and nt able to play the songs in mp3


When I had the same accident this is what worked for me. I disconnected my sandisk player from my computer. After waiting until the sandisk software completed it's termination programming, I re-connected it to the computer.

Because I use Microsoft Windows XP, a window pops up asking if I want to open the device in Windows Explorer. Answering "yes" and then selecting the "Folders" from the tabs at the top of the window will display the sandisk along the left column as "Sansa e250". By double clicking on the folder labeled "PPI NAND" a drop down list of subdirectory folders should be displayed. If the folder "MUSIC" is not there, you will need to create a new folder and label it "MUSIC".

Here is how to create a new folder.
With the folder "PPI NAND" highlighted, move the cursor up to the upper right hand corner of the "Windows Explorer" window and select the tab "File". From the drop down menu select " New Folder ". This should cause a folder to appear in the window to the right of the "Sansa e250" window. The new folder should be highlighted and labeled "New Folder". Select the "New Folder" and rename it "MUSIC". When renamed, select the PPI NAND folder and the new folder "Music" should be listed as one of the folder in the subdirectory. If so, you can select it to see if the Music folder contains and music files. If not, you will need to copy or drag your files into the new "MUSIC' folder.

Once I did all of this and disconnected my sandisk player, the player and let the software complete the programming work before shutting it off, it worked fine. My original problem was caused by shutting my sandisk player off after disconnecting it from the computer before the sandisk software completed its work.

Hope this helps.

Unable to play playlists on my Hitachi MP3


You can try dragging the playlist into the folder that you open up when you connect the player and then you want to drag and drop music. Then drag the folder and drop into the music folder which means you are copying from the player to another folder on the player. This manages to solve the problem of the player re-arranging files alphabetically and may help your playlist issues.

How do i move my songs on my mp3 player?


I connected to my Laptop and created folders to contain different albums or songlists. If you want songs sorted by artists or name, that also can be done on a PC folder prior to selecting and copying back to the MP3 player. This worked for me.

Make sure the image file is in JPG format, or the player won't be able to read it.

For users running Windows XP with Service Pack 1 and above:
With your device connected to your computer, click on My Computer and then click on the icon for your device. If you see a folder labeled DATA, you must copy the photo files you want to view directly into this folder. Folders containing photos cannot be copied to the DATA folder. Photo files must be copied directly to the DATA folder using no other folder.
If you do not see a folder labeled DATA, then copy the photo files you want to view directly to the device. Folders containing photos cannot be copied to the DATA folder.

HDD120 MP3


Plug your HDD120 player into the computer via the USB lead and you should see it appear as an HD drive under My Computer. Click on the icon and you should be able to see some folders on the drive. The music folder is a hidden one which can be revealed by clicking (Tools-Folder Options-View) and selecting show hidden folders. The music can then be copy/pasted onto your computer.
