COBY MPC850 I've got this MP3 as a gift , I can turn it on and WMP11 can detect this device but when I try to go to the sync tab to add songs from my library it says : Windows Media Player cannot find the file. If you are trying to play, burn, or sync an item that is in your library, the item might point to a file that has been moved, renamed, or deleted. But I do have diff. audio files on my PC. HELP !!!

How to get songs back in the coby mp3?


Hello,

On the MP610 you could use either Windows Media Player 11 or Coby Media Manager for transfers of songs.

Next steps are important for adding files onto the player:
1. The player should be detected in the software for transfers, when connecting the USB cable.
2. Setup your library in the software (Add to library): There has to be a list of folders in the software manager, where your music is located on the computer.
3. Create a playlist in the software: make a list of songs, you want to transfer onto your player
4. Sync the playlist onto the player.

When needing more help, just add text in this reply.

I can't find a download site for drivers.


Hello,

The player should be detected in Windows Media Player 11 automatically. If not, look in WMP11 under Sync in the page top if you can manage to get the device recognized manually. An update of the operating system and WMP11 maybe required to get the function to work.

You can use the Setup Guide for how to work with WMP 11.
Setup Guide:

More information about how to use WMP11 is on the site of Microsoft:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/using.mspx

In case you need the User Guide, here's the link to the manual:

When wanting Coby Media Manager for XP, you can get a download of the execute file coby-mediamanager-2009b0924.exe on next site:
http://www.cobyusa.com/?p=fix_mp822
After download and installation, run Coby Media Manager: select Tools > Device Manager...: select MP-705 from the list: click Add : click OK to have the MP-705 as your operating device.

Deleting songs from a Coby MPC855 player


Hello,
When using Windows Media Player 11 as this is common for the MPC885, you can delete songs running this software and making connection from the player to the computer using the provided USB cable.
In the Library menu of WMP11, the Coby player should show up on the left side in the list.
When clicking Music in the left corner of the second bar on top of WMP11, all music shows up from preselected synchronization maps on the computer plus the player.
Click on the player to see the content and delete the songs you'd like to remove.

Only setup guide available for this player:

I am trying to transfer music onto my bush mp3 it is saying device has stopped but i have got it plugged in .can you help me please?


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the Coby website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

then follow these instructions to add music;
**Drag and Drop**
Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder, available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.
--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

I cant download music into it


Thry the solution below. If it does not work then you need to reformat. Also you might want to go to the coby website and download a updated version on the firmware and reflash your player. This will set it back to factory settings.
  1. Open Windows Media Player.
  2. Find and click the "Sync" tab. This is located at the very top of the program.
  3. Plug the Coby mp3 player into one of the USB ports found on your computer. Depending on the exact Coby mp3 player that you own, you can either plug the player directly into the USB port or by using the cord that came with the Coby mp3 player. The name of the Coby mp3 player will appear in the top right corner of Windows Media Player.
  4. Click "Library." This link will be on the left side of the program.
  5. Double-click the "Songs" option in the middle of the screen.
  6. Scroll through the list of music on your computer until you find the songs you want to put on the Coby mp3 player. Right-click on the title of the song and a drop box will appear. Select "Add to Sync List." You will then notice the song listed in the column located on the right side of the program.
  7. Repeat the previous step until you're finished putting songs on the Coby mp3 player.
  8. Click the "Start Sync" tab located beneath the list of songs you chose in Step 6. Those songs will then be added to your Coby mp3 player.

Sync problem sometimes works and sometimes doesn't


I used Windows Media Player 11 to move music to my Fuze.
  1. Plug your Fuze into an USB port on your computer using the provided adapter cord. Windows will detect the Fuze and install it if need be.
  2. Once Windows has done its thing, open WMP11 and select the "Sync" tab.
  3. You can now drag and drop your music from your Library on the left to your Sync Playlist on the right.
  4. Once you've moved your selections, click on the "Start Sync" button at the bottom of the right side.
  5. The music will be uploaded to your Fuze.
You can have WMP11 detect your music and put it into your Library by pressing the F3 key. Press F3, navigate to your music folder with the Add button, and then press OK. You can remove folders from the list in the same manner.

Songs do not appear on WMP11


If you did not transfer the music with same copy or version of Windows Media Player that you are trying to view them with, you cannot see them.

Its a Windows problem, not the device.


You can view the contents in My Computer>Device Name (e260)>MUSIC folder and manually add or delete files that way.




Best of Luck.
