Windows 7 will not recognize my COBY 705 4-G.


For every thing you want to connect to an USB connector, you FIRST have to install the software. Most of the time the software comes on a disk in the package or there is a link on paper, you have to use to get the software.
In the software is a driver, so the device is recognised by the computer (drivers for different computers must be included) and then there is software so you can manage the device from your computer.
Please read the manual before you start installing. And check what computer is needed.

The media converter does not reconize my gogear vibe 4 gb


It could be because your player is frozen. Firstly, I'd suggest that you do a soft reset of your player. You will find the reset button next to the 'power on' button on the side of the player. Please hold the Reset button using a pen tip or other sharp object for 10 seconds. Now turn it on.

If that doesn't work, I'd suggest that you format your player or repair it using Philips device manager. Contents may be removed by using this function. So make sure to back up your contents.

Format:
On your computer desktop, double-click "My computer". Double-click on the MP3 player's icon. Right-click on the Internal Storage icon and then select "Format".

Repair using Device manager:
Launch Device Manager and click the Tool menu and select "Repair", then follow the instructions to perform the repair process. Make sure all other applications such as Philips Plug-in, Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer that access the device are closed or else Device Manager will not recognize the device.

Hope this works.
