Look at it via explorer in windows, (my computer, K drive or whatever the iriver comes up as) there will be some folders in it and the music should be in there.

Can't create new folder on memory stick

Sometimes these things get confused. try moving everything to a folder on your machine then, use the SanDisk tool to format the flash drive and move everything back.

How do I delete files?

The files on your music menu are connected to the folders on your computer. You can't delete the files from your music menu. You have to delete them (or move them) from the folder you took them from.

I suggest that you create a special folder on your computer for only the files you wish to put in coby media manager so that when you get a message like you mentioned you can get the files off your list by moving them back to your normal music folder.

I hope this helps!

Will i lose all my synched ipod music if dad reconfigures comp??

If you try to sync with Dad's PC via iTunes you will lose your music. However take a look at XPlay 3 from; that will allow you to recover music from your iPod onto a PC.
If you need to do this on a Mac try Senuti.

Not synching correctly with itunes music folder

I know another way you could try formatting which may fix this problem. Restoreing just restores all the setting to your iPod yes it shoudl format as well but it may not due to an error or something.

To do try it another way follow these steps, first click on "Start" - "My Computer" look for you iPod when it's connect usually called "Removable Disk" once you've found it "Right-click" on it then click on "Format", once format is complete disconnect, then connect it again then run "Update" for your iPod and for iTunes, once you've done that have another attempt.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way. Further problems leave a comment and i will get back to you.

Not playing music

No Music Files Problem solved
Plug the MP3 player to PC
In Windows XP open Windows Explorer and navigate to one of the music files
Try to play the file in Windows
If it fails, unplug player and once the player switches off carry out a reset
Reconnect player to PC and repeat the process described above
You may need to repeat this several times until the music file plays in Windows.
After this format the player using Windows XP
Select the removable hard drive, right click and select format
Choose Fat32, enter a volume label (for example GMP33005) and select quick format
If formatting fails try several times
Once format is succesfull reload your music files using the software that came with the player
Be careful not to exceed 2.5 or 2.6 GB (leave some free space as this might be needed for the player to work)
The player should now play the music files correctly

Sansa MP3 M240 No volume when playing songs, says to synch

Where did you download the songs? Napster?Rhapsody? Any online music stores? Try synchronizing them using their software. If you have ripped songs from a cd you may want to rip them again and before ripping them check this option on your windows media player software. Tools > Options then under RIP MUSIC remove the check mark that say's Copy Protect Music or choose the file format as MP3. Then format the device using the windows media player software(for version 10 = click on the sync tab then choose the pencil like icon on the far right, for version 11 = right click on the sync tab choose the player and choose format) use after doing that rerip the songs using the windows media player software.

Could not read the next message from the desktop mail system's inbox

PocketMirror does not control mail synch. It's a common misconception that Chapura PocketMirror synchronizes email. It only synchs Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes from Outlook. The Mail or VersaMail conduit from palmOne is responsible for email synch. It sounds to me like you have a bad record or two in your inbox. You could try moving all your current inbox messages to a temporary folder to see if this breaks the log jam. Then you can start to hunt for the bad one by replacing them in portions and re-synching.
