I have the same problem. If you turn the unit over, you can see a small hole on th bottom right hang side - (next to USB symbol) - The RESET button is located inside. If you insert a small paper clip and press the button for approx 20 seconds it should function again.
Works for me

This solution only relates to the Windows Operating System.
You have to plug it in to a USB port preferably one at back off computer and you must have Administrative privileges because a normal user can't access system settings. Now right click on the "My Computer" icon. Next click "Properties", then "Hardware" and finally "Device Manager". Once in "Device Manager" scroll down to "Other Devices". Right click on the icon with the yellow exclamation mark or question mark. Then click "Update Driver". This should pop up a "Hardware Update Wizard" window. Instead of clicking "Install The Software Automatically" click the "Install From A List Or Specific Location". Hit "Next", then click "Don't Search. I Will Choose The Driver To Install". After mark sure "Show All Devices" is highlighted which it should be, click "Next". Now finally click something along the lines of USB Media Player or around that. Ok click "Next" once again and wait a little while. What this is doing is installing the driver(s) for your device. Your done click "Finish" to exit.
If your MP3/4 player still isn't seen by Windows it could be your computer or your device's "Firmware". Usually this solution is successful since I use it for any device that is not read by PC.
I know my iMac with Mac OS 9.2 reads this MP3 player fine. 
Anyways if you can't fix the device this way then I don't know what else to say.
Like I said though sometimes it might be the drivers for your device. 
I hope this helps anyone who needs it.

COBY MP-610 File System Error


COBY MP-610 Digital Media Player File System Error Solution

3a37e3b.jpg

Replacing the firmware of your Coby 610 MP3 Player will unfreeze it and help it act normally again. This will also fix the 'File System Error' that has been popping up with some Coby 610 players. You can find it at the cobyusa.com website by choosing 'Mp3 & Portable', then 'Mp3 & Mp4 Players', then your model 'MP610', from the support page. Or, here is the direct link to the file from Coby's servers.

c6244cb.jpg

Unpacking the archive from the Coby Website will give you a PDF file with instructions, and a program file to run.

Your music will be erased when you run this firmware update. The instructions suggest that even if your mp3 player won't startup properly, if you plug it into your computer you should be able to access it as a removable disk, and copy all your music to a temporary folder on your computer.

Here are the steps:

  1. Plug your MP610 into your computer.
  2. Copy all your music to a temporary folder.
  3. Disconnect your MP610 from your computer.
  4. Disconnect as many USB devices as possible from your computer (to simplify identifying the MP610 at a later step, and avoid damaging other devices by trying to load the MP610 firmware into them by mistake.)
  5. Run the Firmware Update program 'MP610 T LCD Firmware Update for file sys err.exe'
  6. You will see a screen with up to 24 numbered, empty boxes.
  7. Connect the MP610 to your computer. It will show up in one of the boxes.
  8. Once the MP3 player shows up, click on the Firmware Feature icon to start the firmware upgrade.
  9. After the firmware update is complete, you will receive a checkmark in the firmware box.
  10. Disconnect the MP610.
  11. Close the firmware update software.
  12. Turn on the 610 to confirm it starts up and the display reads 'COBY'.
  13. Plug it back into your computer and copy your music back on to it.

I can't get my computer to recognize the Coby MP610-4G when I plug it in. Therefore, I can't transfer any music to it through windows media.


Does your Coby MP610 act normally, other than your computer won't recognize it? Have you tried plugging it in to a different USB port on the same computer, or into a different computer?

I use a different MP3 player myself, but I have revived it and my Sony-Ericsson cell phone by upgrading their firmware. Neither device was being recognized by the computer until I reflashed the firmware, and in both cases reflashing fixed them.

If you want to try reflashing your Copy MP610, I just posted the steps as a Tip on the Fixya website.

I hope that helps.
