Coby MP-C883 I plug it into my computer and it says its detected but it doesn't show up in my windows media player ans when it does its never long enough to put music onto it..so the farthest I've gotten is to press the sync button but when it tries to sync the music to the mp3 player...it disappears again. I've tried all of the troubleshooting that's offered..exchanged the mp3 player for another one...I'm really starting to think its just a piece of **** honestly..can anyone help?

I have been able to sync mine, though it wouldn't transfer some songs. It would sit there trying to convert it but wouldn't. So I tried the alternate way to get them on. I just did a drag and drop and all the songs played fine. I just had to be sure to hold the play/hold/stop button for about six seconds before it would turn on.
BTW all of the songs including the ones windows wanted to convert played fine this way.

My computer will not recognize my player


try finding a reset button and plug it into the computer and press the reset button while its plugged in (just an idea). Some mp3 players also have a format option in it some where, you might want to try that.

Pull Mp3 player out of the USB port. Walk directly to trash can. Discard immediately. Turn around and give yourself a swift kick in the arse for not doing this sooner. I've wasted hours on this as well.

Coby MP-200 wont register on windows xp


This is a flash device and it comes with a USB extension cable, try not using the extension cable and plugging the unit directly into one of the REAR usb ports on your computer. This should make the device show up as a 'Removable Disk' drive under 'My Computer'.

Won't show up on my computer


When you open Windows Media Player, does it show an icon of your coby mp3 player? if so, just double-click the Coby icon, and bring up the song folders that way.

Coby mp3 drivers not found for model mp-c683


Unless you are using Windows 98, you will not need one. Plug and play - the player is so old Coby doesn't really support it anymore. If you're experiencing a specific problem, post it here. If you're using Mac or Linux or Vista - forget about it - this player will not work on those systems.
