Question about Coby MPC895 MP3 Player

File System Error?!

They don't have my exact product listed on here, but it's a Coby MPC7095 2 GB mp3 player. I got my Coby for Christmas, and it was working perfectly for a few weeks. Well, one night I wanted to burn a cd. The music I wanted was on my Coby, but my normal computer doesn't burn cds. So I plugged it into my laptop, and it erased everything. Now every time I turn it on after the initial start up screen, it flashes "File Sys Err" for about 3 seconds. I've reformatted it and reset it countless times. I've tested it by trying to upload a song to it. The player shows the song on the menu, but when I go to play it, it doesn't do anything.Then, once I turn it off and back on, the song is gone and it flashes "File Sys Err" at me again. The odd thing is, even when it's screwed up, the radio works fine. I haven't tried recording anything, because I'm sure it would get deleted, but I don't know what to do anymore. Any help here?!

For me just formating wasn't possible it also showed a size of 130GB instead of 4GB.

I had to "zero" the whole stick in linux with

dd if=/dev/usbdevicename of=/dev/null

After that I could create a new partion and format the stick.

I have the 4GB version (non-FM) and it's having the same issues. I reformatted mine to the NTFS filing system in hopes of uploading my songs faster since these players run on FAT32, but reformatting it to any file system other than FAT32 will cause it to give a File System Err notice on your player. I would suggest reformatting it to FAT32 using your computer. There are resources available everywhere online that shows you how to do this.

My coby 610-2g mp3 player keeps saying file system error (file sys err) I formated it but it still says the same thing... Somebody please give me a solution...

I had the exact same problem. I tried formating and fiddling around with everything I could think of, but to no avail. But the answer to fixing the problem is relatively simple. I just went to the cobyusa website into the support section, chose the device, and used the firmware download. It wipes your player clean but fixes the file system error. hope it works for you as well.
