Download Coby's video converter from their site and follow the instructions. It is a pretty simple program and works well. Here is the link:

I have movie, photo and text.dir but NO music.dir on coby 620 MP3 player. WTF? It's brandnew, Xmas gift.


I had the same problem. Plug the player into your usb on your computer. Bring up "my computer" and find the letter drive of your player. All the existing folders (movie.dir, photo.dir, etc) should show. NOW, while your still in this folder, use your toolbar on the top of your screen to click on "file" and then select "new folder". Carefully type in MUSIC.DIR, click enter and you have now created your own. I did this and it seems to work as it should. It is weird that mine didn't have a music.dir folder either! Good luck!

How do i put movies on my mp600? i put a movie and a few shows on it but it'll only appear in explorer. i use u torrent and mininova to download. it won't show up as a file in movies. how can i put it in...


Videos that you've downloaded from the internet may be in many different formats; you'll need to convert them to the format recognized by your MP600.
The easiest way to do this is to install the Coby Media Manager (CMM) software that was included with your player. Use CMM to convert and transfer movies from your computer to the MP600.

My coby mp600-2g does not play video. After uploading it to my player and turning it on, all it does is freeze when selecting the video.  It shows the "play" symbol in the bottom left corner and then...


I had the same problem with playback of video with coby mp60-2g, and it took a couple of weeks to figure out. I wasted a lot of time installing video file converters, and trying to convert my wmv files to MTV,.... it wasn't necessary!
The Coby Media Manager software that comes with the device actually works for converting wmv files (for example) to mtv files. It's just a little confusing HOW IT WORKS. Unfortunately the 'Coby Media Manager User Guide' is very little help.
The key really is 'Synchronizing' your video to your player! But there's a little organizing of your files to do before-hand, which makes it easier when your ready to playback on your device.
For me it was easier to separate my audio files from my movie files in the 'Device' tab of the Coby Media Manger. This was the 'F:' of the Device content (middle third of the manager window) for me. I put the videos in the MOVIE.DIR folder. But you can't synchronize the video here. You must click on the 'Movies' tab on the left side of the manager window.
Under Movies, go to Library,... (now it gets a little confusing),.... immediately under 'Library', there is a 'Folder',....but that only shows what you have selected by clicking on the 'Video Folder', a little further down and slightly to the right.
So you must make your selection ('Import' video files and folders) by clicking on the 'Video Folder'! When you click on this Video Folder, you'll open a selection box, which offers
-Documents
-Music
-Pictures
-Videos
-C:\
-F:\
If you select only 'Videos', it will automatically select 'C:\', also.Which will import ALL of your videos on your C:\
If you select only 'F:\', it will only import the videos which you have put (as I suggested earlier) in the 'MOVIE.DIR' folder at the 'Device' tab.

NOW TO SYNCHRONIZE,....! (make sure you mp3 is connected to your computer).
You might notice, that if the device (mp600) already contains the file, then there will be a small icon which looks like the mp3, next to the file under the 'status' column.
BUT that doesn't mean that the mp3 will actually 'play' the video. It must ALSO be 'Synchronized', :o).
Once you've made it this far, Synchronizing is easy. Let's assume that you decided to Import all of the videos in C:\, and F:\ when you clicked on the 'Video Folder'.
Now if you go back up to 'Folders', and click on it ALL of your video files will be dislpayed. And the files which are already on your device will have the mp3 icon next to them. Also, when you clicked on 'Folders', additional sub- folders were displayed under the Folders icon.
The easy way to 'Synchronize', is to select the F: folder, with a 'right click',... which gives you the synchronize option,... clicking 'Synchronize' will synchronize-convert-copy all of the video files in the folder! Now, if you go back to the 'Device' tab and look at the video files, you'll see they have all been to converted to mtv files!
Now when you open your mp600, and arrow to 'Movies', you'll be able to play your videos!!

It wont work


When you go into "My Computer" and double-click on the icon of the Coby, it should display several folders.
Copy movie files to the “MOVIE.DIR” folder
Copy photo files to the “PHOTO.DIR” folder

Make sure the files you are transferring are the ones suggested by your user's manual.

Coby "MP605-4G" not doing anything


Copy mp3 files directly into the root directory. Don't copy them into the other directory's. You then should be able to see the MP3 files on your PC and your player.

Pictures/movies


For your pictures, you drag them in the PHOTO.DIR file of your player, for your movies, you convert them in the MTV format and you drag them in the MOVIE.DIR file.

There is nothing to install exept the driver if you have Win98. To convert your videos, follow the instructions below.

Open the drive in which you inserted your mini-cd and double-clic on the folder you see.

double-clic the Video Converter's icon

Select your video

clic on «Start Convertion»

Then, you take your movie from the file where the original is.

Help put videos on my coby


Be sure that your player search in the right folder. For that, press the left arrow until you see MTPMEDIA, PHOTO, MOVIE and TEXT(may have the extension DIR after).Then, select MOVIE. You must find your videos after that.
