The ribbon cable that connects the hard drive to the board came off due to shock impact.

A local repair facility will be able to reconnect the cable.

Reset the player first. Then reload the firmware from the website if resetting fails to resolve.

My computer dosent read my mp620 when plugged into the usb port


Hello there,
Welcome to Fixya.
I suggest you try a different port or cable. Also, verify if you are getting an error message when connecting the player to your computer. This could also mean a driver issue.
Good luck!

I just got my Coby Mp3, and i plugged the USB into my computer and the autoplay screen that is supposed to come on my computer, hasnt.


Does you computer detect a new device when you plugged the Coby MP3 player?
If Coby MP3 player has cd driver, better to install it to your pc. Some computer/laptop doesn't detect autoplay when new USB device plug-in

I plug my coby mp3 n the computer can't read it


Here are instructions for a solution to your frozen Coby 610 problem. This works even though the MP3 player is having problems talking to your computer. They should communicate fine after this update.

Replacing the firmware of your Coby 610 MP3 Player will unfreeze it and help it act normally again. This will also fix the 'File System Error' that has been popping up with some Coby 610 players. You can find it at the cobyusa.com website by choosing 'Mp3 & Portable', then 'Mp3 & Mp4 Players', then your model 'MP610', from the support page. Or, here is the direct link to the file from Coby's servers.

Unpacking the zipfile from the Coby Website will give you a PDF file with instructions, and a program file to run.

Your music will be erased when you run this firmware update. The instructions suggest that even if your mp3 player won't startup properly, if you plug it into your computer you should be able to access it as a removable disk, and copy all your music to a temporary folder on your computer.

Here are the steps:

  1. Plug your MP610 into your computer.
  2. Copy all your music to a temporary folder.
  3. Disconnect your MP610 from your computer.
  4. Disconnect as many USB devices as possible from your computer (to simplify identifying the MP610 at a later step, and avoid damaging other devices by trying to load the MP610 firmware into them by mistake.)
  5. Run the Firmware Update program 'MP610 T LCD Firmware Update for file sys err.exe'
  6. You will see a screen with up to 24 numbered, empty boxes.
  7. Connect the MP610 to your computer. It will show up in one of the boxes.
  8. Once the MP3 player shows up, click on the Firmware Feature icon to start the firmware upgrade.
  9. After the firmware update is complete, you will receive a checkmark in the firmware box.
  10. Disconnect the MP610.
  11. Close the firmware update software.
  12. Turn on the 610 to confirm it starts up and the display reads 'COBY'.
  13. Plug it back into your computer and copy your music back on to it.

Windows not Recognizing COBY MP705-8G


Make sure you have plugged your Coby MP3 player into a USB 2.0 port. The Coby does not support the USB 1.0 standard. If you are getting an error that "This device can perform faster..." your port is an older USB type. I have both types on my computer and the Coby would not install until I plugged it into my 2.0 port.

Hope this helps.

Can't get movies to play


Hello!

The error "Frame size too big." means that the video's Frame Rate is higher than the supported frame rate of your COBY MPC951. To fix this, you need to convert the video to run lower frame rate. You can use any video converter in the internet.

Cheers!

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'.

HDD read error


I had the same problem with my mp3 player. The problem seems to be that the charge had been depleted - even though the screen said the charging was complete when I plugged it in. Disregard the screen, charge your machine for two hours, and if your player is like mine, it will be functioning properly afterwards. Hope that helps.
