You have got to reset the MP3 player. To do this you have to use a paperclip (or something similar) to press the button next the hold toggle it should have the word RST.

When your player freezes, it will only start up and not play the songs or even the buttons won't respond to your pressing them, it is more like your computer hanging and never coming back to working fine unless you restart it. The first thing you should try to do is read the instruction manual and check where the reset button in your MP3 player is. Take a small pin and push the reset button. This will make you player go off for and then you can put it on again and it will work fine. However, there is a possibility of data loss when you reset. Most of your stored stuff will be gone after reset. Another thing that you can do to retrieve your player is doing a firmware update. Do a refresh of your firmware and see if it works, in most cases, it does. Other options are the same that you and everyone else will try as soon as you MP3 player freeze. That is opening the MO3 player and taking out the battery. Set the battery back and push the power button again. It is always a good idea to do a firmware upgrade right after .you can also open it up and blow on it.

Check the connections on both ends to make sure they are attached securely. If the MP3 player is still not recognized, go into the player settings and change the Online Device from Media Device to USB Disk. Use a different USB cord if you have one because it could be broken and not allowing your computer to recognize it.
connect the device to a different USB port on your computer. If the MP3 player is still not charging, plug it into a wall charger. Try charging the Coby device overnight. If it still will not charge, the battery may be bad and you'll need to contact Coby for assistance

Tips for a great answer:
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
