Coby DP-151 digital photo keychain - No display. It's just a blank blue screen. Can't turn it off, but after it runs out of juice, it will shut down. Plug it back into the computer, and all I get is the same blank blue screen again. Tried to contact Coby and they said they've never heard of this happening before. It's only a hew months old, but is just past its 90 day warranty period. Thanks, Debbie

    Just bought the DP-151,
    Connected it to USB port to charge the battery, and downloaded 2 images
    Checked back about 2 hours later.
    Blue screen.
    Will turn on/off but only see a blue screen.
    The PC software says all images are still on the device.

    after switching on,the display shows"windows mobile"and doesnot go further than that.

    I have the same problem but it's to my understanding that the warranty is actually one year not 90 days (nonetheless, I'm less than 90 days). It's turning into that these digital keychains are not what they're cracked up to be.

    What a piece!!! Please, somebody find a way to flash this ****** and fix it. I can't even get XP to recognize the device after lots of fiddling.

  • mjafla Dec 29, 2008

    Same ****, and the one year warranty is useless since it will cost you $6 U.S. to return ship it. Just buy something else, or figure out a way to flash it. I haven't had any luck even getting XP to recognize it.

SOURCE: Program will not run properly

I found this on an Amazon review. I hope it works for you:

1) Install the software on the CD (although the application won't open just yet)
2) Plug in the usb cable into the pc and the keychain and wait a minute (nothing happened here for me)
3) Unplug the cable that goes into the keychain, and then plug it back in. On the keychain screen, an option menu should come up that allows you to select either to power the keychain or to update the keychain via usb. Select the update option. (Note that drivers might install before this or maybe it found the driver I downloaded at the coby website?)
4) Now that you have selected the update option, you can now open the program that was installed off of the cd. Select the pictures you want, move them over, and then download them to the keychain.

Hello! I'm trying to find how to upload my coby photo keychain DP 151. I have a new computer with Windows 7. Can you help me? Thank you


All you do is plugin the keychain to your computer, (make sure you push the cable all the way into the keychain), the softwre should auto popup on your computer screen.

If not, connect, then go to 'Computer under your start button, it will be labeled as a CD rom drive, double click it to access it.

I have a coby dp 151 i can not find the drivers for it.... i need to find them for it. i can not formatt my coby also


there is no drivers for this, it comes with software (installation cd) or its preloaded on the unit itself.

You have to use the software to transfer photos to the keychain,

If you look on the back of your kecyahin, it will say DP151 (SX, MP, BW, etc).

BW has the software preloaded
SX can be downloaded from here:

I've installed program for by coby DP-151 photo keychain and followed the directions and disconnected the player from the computer. Upon reattaching the player to the usb cable I only get a solid blue...


I actually got tired of messing with this thing and tossed it. I've since found a photo viewer by Nextar with a built in CD rom and it automatically comes up when plugged in to the USB port. Works like a charm!

Copy DP-151 Photo Viewer software does not work.


You have to push the USB cable into the keychain until it pops. Push it in hard! I thought mine was all the way in because the keychain lit up, but it wasn't.

I have a coby dp-161 and cannot get the pictures to install.


We had the same problem and you won't believe how simple the actual fix was!!! When you plug the USB plug into the keychain device or whatever device you are using (in our case it was a keychain), make absolutely certain that the plug is pushed in all the way (it is tough to push in) until it actually clicks and all you see is the black part of the USB plug. Then try your software. It should work!!!
