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.

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 .

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.

Good morning today I come to your help, I recently bought a coby MP620, but the moment I attempted to use it could not. I connect and my computer does not recognize and no sign of that charge I come...

Hi Linares,

Here are some steps that will hopefully fix your problem.

  • First I would attempt to restart your computer with MP3 player plugged in the USB.
  • Then once restarted, Locate the MP3 Player under "MY Computer". The MP3 player will be listed as a "Removable Disk".
  • The Coby manual suggests that you use Windows Media Player 11. You can find that here:

Good luck.

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.
