Question about Coby MPC-848 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My mp-c848/256 mb coby player says there is no music on it.

O.k. I am really frustrated with this device. I was listening to the music and then decided to turn it off. I turned it back on and it said "No MP3 files". I though I accidentally deleted it, but on the device, I went to About. It said that I have no free space at all and that my device is full.

I plugged it into my computer and the songs are not there and I can not delete anything since there is no music there, but yet it says 0 free space and the device is full. Please help me. If there is no solution, let me know.

    1. There are no files whatsoever on the file.
    2.There is nothing there to delete.
    3. It is it's own thing.
    4. No, does not have this.
    5. O.k.

    IT says it is full, but there is nothing on these files. I click on the computer with the device"format", but it says that it can not do so.

One song Too Many, The straw That broke the camels Back :)
You really have to take note, to the Amount of songs that can be Stored On These MP3/4 players.
If the players rating has for instance 20 Songs MP3 Maximum, it,s not going to like 21. Or more.
What happens with these devices, is that they Ocassionally ( Model-Make Depending ) Have a Shared System Memory, which is allocated. There May be 1 Folder, allocated to accept 20 Songs. So if you put the extra 1 Song on, it starts to write the song to The MP Player, but has,nt enough space.
This can cause the ( final straw ) or 1 too many songs to be overwritten to another location. ( X-Box hard-drives are Similar )
1 Drive Partitioned to several allocations. So if you overwrite 1 ( too much data ) it overspills into another section or Partion.
If this happens and it,s overwritten your Boot-sector or Operating System. Then Your player May Be Donald-Ducked.
Your options to recover your player Are Thus:-
1:) Check to see if there any files in the Music Folder, also look at other designated folders, to see exactly where the Overspilled data Has Gone.
2:) Try deleting 1 Or 2 insignificant Files, Not System or Startup Files.
3:) If the Player is recognised as a device F:/G:/H:/I:/ in the My Computer Section Of your PC. Right Click And Re-format. ***Important Back up Or save All files folders First***
4:) Try and obtain A Flash update Or re-flash the Firmware, if your Player supports This.
5:) Keep it as a pretty reminder of what you did Wrong, With This One, And buy another hoping you,ve learned by your mistakes. And you,ll never put the extra 1 Song on again, without deleting 2 songs before-Hand.

Help with copying music to my mp3

I have the same player. Are you just dragging and dropping songs on to the player? I use Windows Media Player 10 to put music on the player. It has a function called SYNC. What that does is take your music from WMA 10 (WMA, MP3 files, etc...) and transfers them to your mp3 player. You might give that a shot. Also, WMA 10 should recognize your player and let you connect with it.
