Question about Coby MP300 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Can I use Coby MP305 4GB MP3 player with iTunes on my Mac?

I'm trying to find out whether it's possible to use iTunes to transfer MP3 files onto this Coby MP3 player, or whether I have to manually transfer each song file individually. Coby's website and documentation aren't clear on this. I'd really like to find a way to sync music on my Mac onto the Coby. I can't afford an iPod, so it would great to find a way to easily transfer my music.
Many thanks!

Hello,

You cant synchronize with ITUNES to a Coby MP3 player. Itunes will not recognize the device. Also, Itunes are AAC format which this unit doesn't recognize.

If you have MAC. plug unit into computer, it should show up as NO NAME on your desktop, you wuold have to drag/drop your MP3 file to this location.

If your interested in converting ITUNES to MP3, here is how you could do it on ITUNES "this does not work for purchased music" -

Don't have instructions on how to download music and apps to my mp3 MP828-8G


Make sure that the battery is fully charged. Connect the MP player (while it is on) to a computer with a USB Mini-B (5-pin) to USB type A cable. This is a standard charging cable for older cell phones and tablets.

With Windows, you should see an Auto-play option for what you want to do with the device. Choose the Open Folder to View Files (Windows Explorer) option. Assuming the original software is still on the MP828, install the Coby Media Manager onto the computer. (This file is labeled Coby-cometlite.) If auto-play doesn't launch, open My Computer/Computer by double-clicking on the icon on your desktop. Find the new removable drive and double-click on it.

For Mac OSX, you'll need to launch the Finder Window and look for the removable media. Open the Mac OSX Coby Media Manager folder. Then find the coby-mediamanager.dmg file. Install the software.

You can transfer files with the Media Manager after launching the CMM program. Since the Coby MP3 player works like a removable USB drive, you could also drag and drop files from one folder onto the Coby MP3 player's folders

The manual for the Coby MP828 is available online here: http://assetserver.net/_Assets/Coby/PDF/MP8288GBLU-Manual.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Is there anything in the manual or promo material that says this is possible? If not, then it seems unlikely that you can do it, surely?

I have a new computer and need the software for my coby 610MP3 player. What is the download software website? ANd how do I download itunes to this mp3 player for my sons.


Hello,
Go to cobyusa.com for Coby support.
Specific downloads for the MP610 can be reached if you enter MP610 in the Product Search bar.
When you need Coby Media Manager go to the link "fix for MP822" on the support site cobyusa.com: the fix is the Media Manager from Coby, it can be installed for Windows as well as for Mac.

When using other software programs like Windows Media Player 11 or iTunes, look in the help function or internet site for the used program.
For transfers mainly go through next steps:
0. First install and update the software you will use for transfers
1. Running the software program, the player can be detected in the used software program when connecting the USB cable
2. Setup the library in the used program: the location of the media files must be marked to have access to the data
3. Create a playlist: for example put songs in a list
4. Transfer the playlist onto the player: synchronize the list
5. Wait until the data finished synchronizing; wait for the message you're allowed to disconnect, after that you can take out the USB cable

Coby MP822-4G touch screen doesn't work with our MAC!


Unfortunately itunes only works for apple ipods. If the Media Player shows up on the desktop and discover where the music files should be dropped then he should be able to go to his user folder and then the music folder and then the iTunes Music Library and then be able to drag and drop his required music onto the player. Sounds a bit of a fiddle but a final piece of advice try it with one folder or even one music file and then see if it works.

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.

Tranfering files


Coby no longer keeps a full user manual for this product, but you can use Windows Media Player to transfer your songs onto the player. It is not compatible with iTunes, but you can use the Rip tab in Windows Media Player to rip songs from a CD - you have to go into the Rip Options and change the Rip format to Mp3 first. Coby does have a video on the process at:
http://www.cobyusa.com/?p=tutorial

You can also load mp3 files from a music service such as Limewire into your computer's "My Music" folder - Windows Media Player should automatically detect the songs, but it may take a few minutes.

Good luck!

I can't seem to download songs onto my mp4 player


Your Coby player is not compatible with iTunes. What you will have to do is to download the songs from iTunes, and, provided the songs do NOT have copy protection on them (possibly unlikely), you will need to download a free program like Media Monkey to convert the songs to Mp3 format. Once the songs are converted to mp3 format, you can use either Media Monkey or Windows Media Player to transfer the songs to your mp3 player.

Coby mp3 player and itunes


Hi there! Your Ipod is an Ipod and your Coby is a Coby. If I am reading you correctly you want to move your favorites from your Ipod to your Coby. No problem...your Ipod is a file folder and your Coby is a file folder. Drag and drop to the Coby, They do not speak the same language.
