Question about Coby MP-705 Digital Media Player
Hi, i am trying to get my computer to recognize an mp3 player with no luck...it doesn't work on any computers. i tried the coby website for firmware, but this model is not there. can you please help...model no: mp-605 and it's a 4 gig.
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.
