Re: coby mp3 player problem

Write the songs to a CD (or a CDRW) first, then re-rip them to Windows Media Player/iTunes/whatever as mp3s, or unprotected WMAs.

Honestly it's easier to burn and re-rip than remove the copy protection. When you burn it to a CD, the DRM goes away, and you'll have a new file that actually plays on your player.

This unit only accepts MP3 or Unprotected WMA files. You have to have third part software to convert the audio files to MP3.

How to download songs to an mp3 player from itunes

MP3 players cant be used with itunes, Itunes is only for Ipods and such.
Just see where you download the actual songs. and put them in a folder and copy the songs into your MP3 player.

Or you can also try right clicking on the song in itunes and then copying and pasting it in the MP3 player

Can't seem to transfer music files to my new MP610-2G

The cobyt player is completely incompatible with iTunes. If you have songs that are in mp3 format, you can use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs to your Coby. If your songs are already in AAC (iTunes) format, you can use a free program like Media Monkey to convert UNprotected AAC files to mp3 format so that they will be usable with your Coby. Media Monkey is not capable of converting protected files.

I purchased songs on itunes and want to transfer them to my mp3 player (creative ZEN). it won't allow me to import protected songs mp4. I can't convert them to MP3 either....any suggestions?

Try this. We had this problem too and ultimately scraped itunes and went to .
Burn you purchased songs to disk and then download the files to your device or just download limewire where all songs are Mp3 formatted and it is really user friendly. Download, highlight at lower screen at limewire and hit explore - then save file to mP3 device (just be sure to always highlight target song) and it is really easy. Good Luck and Have Fun!!!

My coby mp3 player doesnt let me put songs in it

go to and download the old bearshare downloading music program and get files that way. For some reason the newer versions of file sharing programs only let you download copyrighted music.

Cant transfer limewire music from my computer to my mp3

The Limewire music is located in your My Computer> C:>Documents & Settings Folder>Administrators Documents (your name)>Shared Folder. You can manually drag these files from this folder onto your device, located under My Computer>Device Name (there may or may not be a music folder, you should put it in there if there is). Once you drag & drop the files, you should safely disconnect your device, then you are done. Best of Luck.
