Solution: Put Your Files Where They belong without WMP
Obviously this it not a problem but rather a solution. I just got my player an hour ago and found that the way to get your music, videos, photos, and text into the designated folders was not indicated anywhere on the manual. There is the "put everything in the same place method" where u choose say "video" to find "no files" then u touch left and go to the MPTMEDIA directory where everything should be stored. But i stumbled across the way it works where 1) u do NOT need Windows Media Player and 2) u can get every file in its correct folder so it will show up immediately without any searching as it should.
Its very simple.
1. Turn on your player. 2. Go to Settings > USB Mode > MSC 3. Connect your player to your computer via usb. 4. On your computer, choose to view files or go to My computer > Coby MP3 Player.
Voila, you should now be looking at all the directories present on your device. Now if u place a video(s)* in the VIDEO.DIR folder, when u choose videos on the main menu of your player, it/they will immediately show up.
*Videos must be converted to .mtv format with the included software
For your music open the MTPMEDIA folder and then create a new folder in it called Music. Put all your music files in this folder. then, when u choose music from the main menu of your player, it will take u right to your music.
I hope this is helpful to people who are confused by this issue now or in the future. if u have any questions feel free to ask

I was having the same problem when I used Overdrive Media Console to transfer my audiobook files to my Sansa. I updated the license and retransferred and even tried changing the USB settings on the mp2 player. What finally worked? Using Windows Media Player to sync the files instead. When I hooked up my Sansa I chose "use WMP to sync files" and then I dragged/dropped the audiobook files to the mediaplayer window. The audiobook now plays without any problems since WMP made sure the files have the latest subscription update code.
GO TO THE FILE WERE YOUR E-MUSIC IS DOWN LOADED TO AND EACH SONG AND LAUNCH IT FROM THERE MAKE SURE YOUR WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER IS SET AS YOUR DEFAULT PLAYER YOU CAN DO THAT BY RIGHT CLICKING ON EACH SONG AND CHECKING IT AFTER YOU LAUNCH THE SONG FROM THERE IT SHOULD PUT THAT SONG IN YOUR WMP LIBRARY AND ALSO USE WMP TO PLAY THE SONG YOU DONT HAVE TO PLAY THE FULL SONG JUST THE BEGINING OF IT,IF THAT DOES'NT WORK THEN CHECK YOUR WMP SETTING TO MAKE SURE THAT THE SONGS THAT YOU LAUNCH WITH WMP ARE AUTO ADDED TO YOUR LIBRARY
