Re: movie folder disappear

Your player may only read some types of movie types such as AVI, mpeg ect.. try finding a peice of converting software i reommend Ultra Video Converter. Use that to convert movies which you want on your player then to diffrent file types then try to uploaded and see if that works.

Good luck. Hope my solution helped.

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
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!!

The Sony NWZ range can only play WMV (windows media video) files. All movies you download through iTunes are .Mov (quicktime) files so these are not compatible. There are some convertors that can translate between .mov and wmv but for movies you have downloaded through iTunes, this will not be possible I'm afraid because of the copy protection they have built in.

To transfer wmv files onto your walkman don't use iTunes but use the Windows Explorer itself. Just drag the files on to the Video folder of your device.

All the best

How do I put video's on to the the media player nextar ma715?

Press rewind button or fast forward button in main menu to select Movie function and press play button to enter Movie play.

(1) This player supports the playing of movie files in SMV format. Convert the desiredmovie(MPG,AVI,WMV format) to SMV format with transcoder software(video2smv.exe)in the attached CD (if any) or save in the player or downloaded from Internet.

(2) Movie should be put in MVIDEO folder of the player. If there is not such folder,please create one. Please note that the player cannot find those movie files if theyare not put in MVIDEO folder of the player.

Here is the Website for it. It has the PDF manual and the convert software.

Hope this helps. M~

You'll need to re-encode those movies before they'll play on your device. You can do it with this fantastic piece of free software. It's very easy to convert movies with it.

Converting things

Try to convert them to you local disc first and then move them to the gogear. This is what I do with media converter for philips.
Instead of choosing current device choose folder. When converted try to view the movie first with your media player. The gogear apears as a dics when you browse my computer and you can then copy/move the files to the appropriate folder on it. Make sure that movies, pictures and mp3 files are in the right folder on the gogear.

Lost video and space

Once looking at the player in explorer, go to tools - folder options - view hidden files and folders. Once you select that and hit okay, your vids should be on there (but a bit opaque). Just simply delete them.

Good luck

It's not supporting mpg movies. You need to convert it to .amv then you can show it on the Player.
