How do I download music on it from itunes

Go to your I-Tunes folder, and you can select which MP3 files to put on your Coby player. If all of your songs are in the M4A I-Tune format you can get a FREE program to change them to mp3 from here:

I use music in the *.mp3 format at 128mbs

1. I put all movies (avi or wmv), music (MP3s), photos (160x128pixels - jpg) or audiobooks in it's own folder (on my computer) in a folder called "FOR COBY"

2. Open the COBY Manager
If you've had to re-format the player (which is a great way to get all previous stuff off it), you can get the Coby Manager from here:

CobyMedia Manager fix for MP822 (Windows XP/2000/Vista)

Don't let it throw you that it says it's for the MP822 - it also works great for the MP610

3. Plug your COBY player (THAT IS TURNED OFF) into the USB port - it will show up in the "DEVICE" tab

4. Click on the "Music" tab.

5. You can get the music into the folder one of three ways

a. Drag and drop from your COBY FOLDER/MUSIC FOLDER to the blank/empty space in the Coby Manager Music Page OR

b. Use the "SEARCH" icon (7th icon from the left - looks like a magnifying glass.)

c. Go to: My Documents/ My Music/ ITunes/ Music/
Then start looking in the folders for individual songs or select an entire folder - drag an drop onto a blank area of the Coby Manager Music Page. (If you put a music folder on the player, it will keep the songs in the order that they are in the folder.)

6. Right Click on a song, select "Synchronize" when it's done you will see a closed lock in the Status column

7. From COBY Manager,
b. Click on Music folder - there it is....

8. Go back to the MUSIC Tab. To get ALL the new songs in this tab to synch with the player:
a. Click on EDIT
b. Click on SELECT ALL
c. You will want to unselect the first song you synched (so it won't be highlighted in orange)
d. Right click on any orange highlighted song and select "Synchronize"
e. This will take awhile especially if you add 1300 songs at a time!
f. When it is done, all the music that has been added to you player will have a closed lock icon under the STATUS column.
g. Go to the DEVICE tab page and they will all be listed under the music folder.

Use the DEVICE Tab Page to EJECT the Coby player.

1. It will have a pop-up screen to ask "Do you want to eject?" Click YES.
2. The second pop-up screen will tell you "The device can now be safely removed from the system.

The Coby will now show "Please Wait..." in the screen.

It will take the Coby about 10 minutes on the Please Wait and then to UPDATE the Library - Be PATIENT

My coby 512 mb can't sync on window media what do i do

When you have it plugged in there should be a pop up asking what you would like to do. If you see this screen click Open to view files. (If you don't see the little pop up box asking what to do go to My Computer and see if your device name is on one of the icons on that screen and double-click on it.) Leave the window open so that you can transfer songs. Go to My music in another window or go to Windows Media Player and find the songs that you want. Don't try to sync them because obviously it's not working. However, In windows media player you can right-click on one of the songs that you want and Scroll down to Open Containing Folder and left click . This will open the location in a new Window Now, make this window smaller and make sure you can see the window with your device. * If your device has a folder that says music, double-click on it first before following the next step.* the song from it's original folder to your devices' folder. There should be a pop-up that says Copying. Do this with the rest of your songs and you'll be partying in no time! ! !

Sync problems

these cheaper mp3 players dont usually need software to upload songs. normally all you have to do is plug your player into an ACTIVE USB connection. windows should let you know that there is a removable storage device connected depending on your autoplay settings when you connect your player to your computer. a box MIGHT pop up and prompt you to either play files or open a folder etc. if it doesn't look in the bottom right and corner of your screen you should see a safely remove hardware icon there by the time/clock. if you dont the your mp3 play is not being recognized and you might have to try another USB slot. you can also try to go to my computer and check to see if your device is listed as a drive. you should see it listed as removable disc (Drive letter). you double click of the drive letter to open your device folder then you just simply drag and drop the music you want to hear in that folder. depending on how new your computer is and how fast your USB connection each file could take anywhere from 1 second - 2 minutes so be patient.

Coby mp705-4g playlist help needed

Hello Simone, the interesting thing about the Coby MP705 is that the company decided not to reinvent the technology that already exist, but to use the Windows technology. The best way of creating a playlist is by first connecting your MP3 player to your computer. After the computer recognizes the mp3 player double click “my computer” after that double click on the icon that shows “Coby MP705” and if “internal storage” appears also double click that icon. You should now see a series of folders double click the music folder. All your music folders will now appear. Go on any music folder and right click it. You will see an option half way down that say “create playlist” by selecting this option you create that folder as a playlist. If you want to make a playlist with a compilation of assorted music you must first create a folder with all the music you would like in that playlist then follow the instructions on how to create a playlist hope this helps.

For your music, go in MTPMEDIA\Music folder then, create an another one and drag all your files in. Go in the new folder arranger your files alphabetically and drag them back to the music folder. Delete the new folder you created before and the next time you will look at your songs from your player, they will be in alphabetical order.
