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!!

Your device only handles .WMV video format at 128x128 resolution. Please make sure that your video is in this format, or it will not play.

How do I upload videos with Coby Media Manager for my MP-620 without it saying "Can not transform Stream"?


Hi Jeffery K Babcock
You have to have the right format on the videos to up load them to your player.
Your MP3 player must use MTV Video Format Support)

You will need a format converter if your video format is anything else than MTV.

My coby mp705 wont turn on but when i plug it to my computer it works.. what kind of assistance shall i do to make my coby back to normal? any kind of answer would be wonderful


sounds like the battery is the problem if it wont start wothout a power source

Check the system requirements for the MP3 player.

Most Coby players require Windows XP or higher and at least 1 GB of RAM to function correctly.


Check your Coby owner's manual to ensure that your machine meets all the required specifications before proceeding.


Charge the MP3 player fully.

Often, a player will act unexpectedly if it has a low charge.

A charge can also help reset the MP3 player if it has frozen or locked up.


Once the player has finished charging to 100%, see if the problem persists.

Re-sync your player.


Plug the MP3 player back in to the computer and then remove all the files.

If you have not done so already, make sure they are backed up to your hard drive.


Unplug your MP3 player and then re-load all of your files.

Check for corrupted and wrong format files.


Most Coby MP3 players only play back MP3 files, and will perform unexpected operations

if files of other formats are uploaded to the device.


Go through your uploaded files and check the extensions.

Anything that does not say ".mp3" or is not listed in your owner's manual needs to be deleted from the device.


hope this helps

How can i upload music videos??


Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses.Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX.If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses. After video conversion then copy the video files to your MP3 player using the USB cable from your computer.

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.
