Re: i can't play

The controls are underneath the Coby sign - check the user manual for how to work it.  There's no menu screen unfortunately if that's what you mean.

I need some instructions on how play it

1. Use Windows Media Player to put songs on your Coby MP3 player. Download songs in MP3, WMA, or OGG format from a legal downloading website. If the file is not one of the previously mentioned files, you must download a converter to convert the file to one of the correct files that can be played on Windows Media Player. Rip a song from a CD by inserting the CD and then click on the option to "Rip" the song to your library. Some Coby MP3 players do not need Windows Media Player to add songs, so be sure to check your user manual to see if there is an even simpler method.
2. Connect your Coby MP3 player to your computer using the USB connector that came with your MP3 player. The player will show up under the "Devices" option on your Window Media Player application.
3. Click on the "Library" option to view all of the songs stored on your Windows Media Player library. You can drag the song to the MP3 player in the "Devices" section, or you can right-click on the song and choose the option to transfer the song. In the pop-up box choose your MP3 from the drop-down menu and then click on the "Transfer" button.
4. Right-click on the MP3 player in Windows Media Player and choose the "Eject" option. Disconnect your MP3 player from your computer and turn it on. The song will now be available on your MP3 player. Press the bottom button to play or pause the song.
5. Add videos and pictures to your Coby MP3 player if it supports those files. The process is similar to transferring audio files. Plug your MP3 player into your computer. Open the photo file on your computer and drag pictures into the player. You can create folders to organize the pictures.

Won't play music I copied-Coby c-582

I work for Coby technical support. Our customer service phone number is 1-800-727-3592.

I'd like you to try something so that we can see if there is something wrong with your player. First, I'd like you to format your player. This will wipe it clean of any files that are on it. To format, follow these steps:

Step 1

Connect the unit to your computer via the USB port.
Step 2

Double-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, or, click your start button and choose My computer from the right side of the start menu.

Step 3

Right-click the icon for the Coby player.

Step 4

Choose Format from the menu that appears, and choose quick format after that.

Step 5

You'll see a warning that formatting will erase all data on the drive. Click OK.

After this has been done, go to the MY MUSIC folder that is found by clicking MY DOCUMENTS on the start menu. Open the folder labeled sample music and copy and paste one of those songs into the player. Then disconnect the player and see if that one song will play.

If you're able to load a sample song as described above and it doesn't play on the player, unfortunately this would mean the unit is defective and needs to be replaced. It can not be fixed. The warranty is 90 days from the date of purchase. You will need a receipt for warranty exchange.

If you feel this solution doesn't deserve a good rating, please let me know why so that I may better assist you. If there is anything more I can do to help, I will!

i had the same problem, but after connecting it to my pc, via usb and looking in my computer under removable storage to open up the files in the player and make sure they were there, the player starting to work again after removing from my pc, worth giving it a try, unless you save all the mp3's to your pc then do a factory reset, within the player menu.
