I am able to successfully load songs and pictures to my device but when using the conversion software to convert videos to then sync using windows media player to the device once it says its been added and i disconnect the device and try to view the movies on the player it says invalid file format its done this with more then one different movie and film clip and the files format are proper because i used the software the device came with to do the conversion any help is greatly appreciated also i noticed in the menu display their are two files there i did not add MTP.BIN and WMPInfo.xml do they belong on the device or are they whats stopping the video files from syncing properly should they be deleted and if so how do i do that ? please help me im going out of town for a week and this will be my only means of having movies and songs to enjoy
Im using 4gb MP-705 and i kinda read through the guide thing and the first problem with the ur vids are that, if u sync with window media player the video files becomes WMV, but you want AVI so change it to AVI and drag the files to the coby directly by going into computer-coby blah and movies folder. I dunno about the MTP.BIN and WMPInfo.xml, but i tried everything i knew for making videos work, but in the end it didn't work. Just try the method with dragging and if it doesn't work i dun really know im stuck there. don't forget to converse the files with the small cd program

1. Use Windows Media Player to put songs on your Coby MP3 player. Download songs in MP3, WMA, or OGG format from a legal downloading website. If the file is not one of the previously mentioned files, you must download a converter to convert the file to one of the correct files that can be played on Windows Media Player. Rip a song from a CD by inserting the CD and then click on the option to "Rip" the song to your library. Some Coby MP3 players do not need Windows Media Player to add songs, so be sure to check your user manual to see if there is an even simpler method. 2. Connect your Coby MP3 player to your computer using the USB connector that came with your MP3 player. The player will show up under the "Devices" option on your Window Media Player application. 3. Click on the "Library" option to view all of the songs stored on your Windows Media Player library. You can drag the song to the MP3 player in the "Devices" section, or you can right-click on the song and choose the option to transfer the song. In the pop-up box choose your MP3 from the drop-down menu and then click on the "Transfer" button. 4. Right-click on the MP3 player in Windows Media Player and choose the "Eject" option. Disconnect your MP3 player from your computer and turn it on. The song will now be available on your MP3 player. Press the bottom button to play or pause the song. 5. Add videos and pictures to your Coby MP3 player if it supports those files. The process is similar to transferring audio files. Plug your MP3 player into your computer. Open the photo file on your computer and drag pictures into the player. You can create folders to organize the pictures.
Thanks to ZZAMAMEE I found Kate's Video Converter (free) 4.0 and I was able to use it to convert the video into a format that the video conversion software supplied with the Coby MP-705 was able to recognize. To do the conversion select AVI, then advanced. Next select XviD MPEG-4 Codec for the video compressor,and WMAudio Encoder DMO for the Audio Compressor. Select the Resize Output Target size of 320 X 240 pixels and for Type select Fit to Target size, then apply. This will take you back to the original conversion screen. To select your output directory you need to select Settings, then select the settings option and browse to your output directory. After you select this then select the convert button. At this time you can change the name of the video if you want.
Now you can open Video Converter (the software that came with the Coby player), and use your new video as the input file. Select the output file, and you can also copy it straight to the player by selecting the MP3 Player tab and navigating to your video folder on your player. Hilight the input video name in the list of files in the bottom portion of the program, then select the little cog icon midway down on the right side and set the output file type to AVI, the size to 220 X 176 and select OK. Hit the conversion button and once the conversion is complete and it has copied your files you are done and ready to watch the videos.

The CD is only for people who are running Windows 98. You don't need the CD in order to load and play music on your player. If you want to convert video clips and then load them on the player, visit cobyusa.com and you'll find the video conversion software that you'll need.
If you feel this solution doesn't deserve a good rating, please let me know why so that I may better assist you. If there is anything more I can do to help, I will!
You first have to convert the video files to MTV format which is the only format the device recognizes. Below is a link for a setup guide which will walk you through step by step, The first link is the actual conversion software.
Use the video conversion software utility included on the Installation CD to create video files that
are suitable for playback on the MP-C7052.
Your player supports AMV files with the following specifications:
160 x 128 resolution at 15 frames per second (fps)
The video conversion software will not recognize ALL types of video files, so you will have to find a free converter that will convert files of one type to AVI or another recognized video type.
Look at the help files in the video converter software for far more detail than we could ever hope to provide here.
