Re: Coby

I had the same problem, but after connecting it to my pc, via usb and looking in my computer under removable storage to open up the files in the player and make sure they were there, the player starting to work again after removing from my pc, worth giving it a try, unless you save all the mp3's to your pc then do a factory reset, within the player menu.

Erasing songs from MP3 player

if you have windows media player, which i uses to drag and drops all my songs, go to the sansa player which appears on the left, click on it. It should show all your songs and mostly everything, right click on the mouse and it should show a list of which song you wants to delete.

Navagating music files on mp3 player

no, actually, you can't. it leaves off on the song you finished listening to after you turned it off. i know it's irritating, but you just get to listen to your songs in the order that you put them in.

Player is not turning on

Sometimes I must hold the play button down for over 7 seconds on my unit to get it to turn on. See also the answer to the question on properly charging the unit; i.e, have the slide switch in the "off" position.
If you are using a USB hub to charge the mp3 player then the hub must be powered.
