Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Music synced to Coby MP822-4G does not end up in the player's ''Music'' folder in the player. When the ''Music'' icon is pressed, no listing appears on screen even after you select any other option afterwords. The songs can be found after pressing the ''Files'' icon / (C:) / Music though. But even then the songs are only listed by the artist's last name and can only be played one at a time. The software included on the player installed ok on my Vista but lacked the ability to delete/remove songs. Ended up using Windows Media Player 11 to sync to the player. The player shows up as ''F'' drive under START/COMPUTER and the ''Music'' folder shows all the songs in it when clicked on but they're just not there where they should be on the player. The ''Files'' folder cannot be found however when I open the ''F'' drive. I know this is a pretty ''low end'' type mp3/video player but thought it would be at least operational for the $50.00 I shelled out for it. Note: I drag/drop avi videos to the ''Video'' folder and all is good. The songs getting into the ''Music'' folder is the main problem. Drag/Drop or Copy/Paste does not work for them. Thanks

SOURCE: Using Windows Media Player 11 or Real Player 10.5 to Transfer Music

I have one of these too and it cannot be used with media player 11 as there are no updated drivers. Use media player 10 and you should have no problems.

SOURCE: Sansa m250 playlists

First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:

) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB".
2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".

Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.

However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.


To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:

- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode
- Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list
- Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings"
- Check "Synchronize device automatically"
- Set "View" to "All Playlists"
- Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device
- Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Philips GoGear SA3245 - Playlists Not Showing Up on Player

Have solved this problem on GoGear syncing with WMP 11 by going to options on the device itself, then go to the "settings" option, scroll down to "PC Connection Preferences", from here you will select the check box saying "MTP" then back out of options and connect your device and go back to your WMP 11 and drag your playlists to the syncing area and resync your device. You should then be able to see your playlists under the playlist option in music along with the "playlist on the go" playlist.

Hope this will help!

SOURCE: Computer does not recognize Coby MP822 4G MP3 player

The actual MP3 player should display a USB connection on the screen, if not, I would say its a connection issue (bad USB cable), my guess is your using a laptop, a lot of laptops disable their USB power options, you probably need to re-enable your USB ports, if desktop, it should show a USB connection on MP3, if not, battery or cable issue.

I have a Coby MP620. It says to drag and drop files to the music.dir folder but I have no such folder. I have the movie, photo and text files but no music. I have no idea what to do next.


When your MP3 Player is connected to a computer, you may transfer music files to your MP3 player using your operating system's basic file management commands (i.e., copy-and-paste or drag-and-drop).Connect the Coby MP3 player to your computer through its USB adapter. Select "Open folder to view files" from the new device dialog box that pops up. If the new device dialog does not appear upon the hardware's connection, click "Start," click "My Computer" and right-click the Coby MP3 player's device icon in Windows Explorer .Click "Start," click "My Music" and open the folder containing the music you wish to transfer onto the Coby MP3 player. Drag and drop the music files or folders into the Coby MP3 player's open directory. Alternatively, you can highlight the music files or folders and click the "Copy the selected" link from the Files and Folders Tasks menu in the left column. Select the "Removable Disk" drive from the list of destinations.

I have a Coby mp601. When I go to Open the Players folder there is no Music.dir only dir for Movie, Photo and Text. How can I fix this?


You dont need a music folder, there is a sample song already on the player, you can put your music directly on the player (not in any folder). By default, there is no music folder, if you use the Coby Media Manager software, it will auto sync folder selections for you however.

How do you download songs from computer's music files? I copied and pasted from my library,they appear on the player when connected t computer but are not there when disconnected?


Hello,

Transfers onto he MP815 can be done through exploring 'My Computer':
Music files must be copied into the Media folder of the player.
In this mode, the player shows as a removable disk in the computer folders.
Before disconnecting the player, always go through the safely remove hardware icon in the right corner below on the computer's screen.

When you're using a software program (e.g. Coby Media Manager or Windows Media Player) for transfers, use the help function in the software.
For Windows Media Player 11:
0. The player should be detected when you connect the USB cable.
1. Setup a library in WMP 11 [ Add to Library ], so the player knows the location of your music files.
2. Create playlist: put songs in a list
3. Sync the list onto the player
4. Wait until synchronizing has finished
Do not disconnect while sync is busy: a message appears when you're allowed to disconnect.

How do I download music on it from itunes


Go to your I-Tunes folder, and you can select which MP3 files to put on your Coby player. If all of your songs are in the M4A I-Tune format you can get a FREE program to change them to mp3 from here:

http://www.magicvideo.net/m4a-to-mp3/

I use music in the *.mp3 format at 128mbs

1. I put all movies (avi or wmv), music (MP3s), photos (160x128pixels - jpg) or audiobooks in it's own folder (on my computer) in a folder called "FOR COBY"

2. Open the COBY Manager
If you've had to re-format the player (which is a great way to get all previous stuff off it), you can get the Coby Manager from here:

CobyMedia Manager fix for MP822 (Windows XP/2000/Vista)

Don't let it throw you that it says it's for the MP822 - it also works great for the MP610

3. Plug your COBY player (THAT IS TURNED OFF) into the USB port - it will show up in the "DEVICE" tab

4. Click on the "Music" tab.

5. You can get the music into the folder one of three ways

a. Drag and drop from your COBY FOLDER/MUSIC FOLDER to the blank/empty space in the Coby Manager Music Page OR

b. Use the "SEARCH" icon (7th icon from the left - looks like a magnifying glass.)

c. Go to: My Documents/ My Music/ ITunes/ Music/
Then start looking in the folders for individual songs or select an entire folder - drag an drop onto a blank area of the Coby Manager Music Page. (If you put a music folder on the player, it will keep the songs in the order that they are in the folder.)

6. Right Click on a song, select "Synchronize" when it's done you will see a closed lock in the Status column

7. From COBY Manager,
a. CLICK "DEVICE" tab
b. Click on Music folder - there it is....

8. Go back to the MUSIC Tab. To get ALL the new songs in this tab to synch with the player:
a. Click on EDIT
b. Click on SELECT ALL
c. You will want to unselect the first song you synched (so it won't be highlighted in orange)
d. Right click on any orange highlighted song and select "Synchronize"
e. This will take awhile especially if you add 1300 songs at a time!
f. When it is done, all the music that has been added to you player will have a closed lock icon under the STATUS column.
g. Go to the DEVICE tab page and they will all be listed under the music folder.

Use the DEVICE Tab Page to EJECT the Coby player.

1. It will have a pop-up screen to ask "Do you want to eject?" Click YES.
2. The second pop-up screen will tell you "The device can now be safely removed from the system.

The Coby will now show "Please Wait..." in the screen.

It will take the Coby about 10 minutes on the Please Wait and then to UPDATE the Library - Be PATIENT
ENJOY!

Coby MP822 MP3 Player doesn't organize songs by artists or albums, how do I get it to organize them?


Go to the coby site and download the coby media manager the one on the player is corrupt (http://www.cobyusa.com/?p=fix_mp822). Once you get that installed on you PC use it like Windows media player, theres a user guide that helps sync everything. By the way it will put all your music in a folder titled "music" move the music to the folder titled "audio" so you can use the touch screen music icon.

I am trying to transfer music onto my bush mp3 it is saying device has stopped but i have got it plugged in .can you help me please?


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the Coby website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

then follow these instructions to add music;
**Drag and Drop**
Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder, available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.
--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

I cant download music into it


Thry the solution below. If it does not work then you need to reformat. Also you might want to go to the coby website and download a updated version on the firmware and reflash your player. This will set it back to factory settings.
  1. Open Windows Media Player.
  2. Find and click the "Sync" tab. This is located at the very top of the program.
  3. Plug the Coby mp3 player into one of the USB ports found on your computer. Depending on the exact Coby mp3 player that you own, you can either plug the player directly into the USB port or by using the cord that came with the Coby mp3 player. The name of the Coby mp3 player will appear in the top right corner of Windows Media Player.
  4. Click "Library." This link will be on the left side of the program.
  5. Double-click the "Songs" option in the middle of the screen.
  6. Scroll through the list of music on your computer until you find the songs you want to put on the Coby mp3 player. Right-click on the title of the song and a drop box will appear. Select "Add to Sync List." You will then notice the song listed in the column located on the right side of the program.
  7. Repeat the previous step until you're finished putting songs on the Coby mp3 player.
  8. Click the "Start Sync" tab located beneath the list of songs you chose in Step 6. Those songs will then be added to your Coby mp3 player.

Coby mp705-4g playlist help needed


Hello Simone, the interesting thing about the Coby MP705 is that the company decided not to reinvent the technology that already exist, but to use the Windows technology. The best way of creating a playlist is by first connecting your MP3 player to your computer. After the computer recognizes the mp3 player double click “my computer” after that double click on the icon that shows “Coby MP705” and if “internal storage” appears also double click that icon. You should now see a series of folders double click the music folder. All your music folders will now appear. Go on any music folder and right click it. You will see an option half way down that say “create playlist” by selecting this option you create that folder as a playlist. If you want to make a playlist with a compilation of assorted music you must first create a folder with all the music you would like in that playlist then follow the instructions on how to create a playlist hope this helps.
