Corrupt filenames on my Coby mp-c591 audio/visual mp3player
What would happen if I zapped my Coby mp-c591 mp3 audio/video.
My cat stopped the usb transfer by stepping on the cable. I now have
corrupt filenames. I called Coby and the unit has a 90 second warranty.
I figure the brains are on a chip and the files are on the hard drive.
I have reformatted the mp3. It now thinks that there is nothing there,
although there are 11 gb of audio and jpg on board. It would allow me
to use the remaining space for something, but the folders are
missing......What do you think?

Reformatting will erase the music and picture files for sure - in some instances, it can also delete a player's native formatting, which requires a firmware upgrade to resolve. It looks like you've tried quite a few methods to re-add those files - have you tried the firmware upgrade yet from Coby's website?

If your player cannot play a video then itis an incompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video fileto a format that your MP3 player uses.
There are commercial and freeware videoconverters on the Internet. Use Google to search for Video converters. I foundthese converters useful, Kate's Video converter, Any Video converter and CIVideo Converter.
I suggest you try some freeware typesfirst and convert a video file, then test this converted video file on your MP3player.
To copy/download your video files to yourMP3 player, connect the USB cable from the MP3 player to the USB port on thecomputer. Open the video folder on the MP3 player and copy and paste the videofile/s from the computer to the video folder on the MP3 player.
Download the proggy for the unit and format the memory, If its a usb unit that needs no drivers and self installs that you can browse try deleting everything you put on it and try again 10 songs at a time. Most likely there is a corrupt file in there.
