SOURCE: My mp-c848/256 mb coby player says there is no music on it.

Hi,
One song Too Many, The straw That broke the camels Back :)
You really have to take note, to the Amount of songs that can be Stored On These MP3/4 players.
If the players rating has for instance 20 Songs MP3 Maximum, it,s not going to like 21. Or more.
What happens with these devices, is that they Ocassionally ( Model-Make Depending ) Have a Shared System Memory, which is allocated. There May be 1 Folder, allocated to accept 20 Songs. So if you put the extra 1 Song on, it starts to write the song to The MP Player, but has,nt enough space.
This can cause the ( final straw ) or 1 too many songs to be overwritten to another location. ( X-Box hard-drives are Similar )
1 Drive Partitioned to several allocations. So if you overwrite 1 ( too much data ) it overspills into another section or Partion.
If this happens and it,s overwritten your Boot-sector or Operating System. Then Your player May Be Donald-Ducked.
Your options to recover your player Are Thus:-
1:) Check to see if there any files in the Music Folder, also look at other designated folders, to see exactly where the Overspilled data Has Gone.
2:) Try deleting 1 Or 2 insignificant Files, Not System or Startup Files.
3:) If the Player is recognised as a device F:/G:/H:/I:/ in the My Computer Section Of your PC. Right Click And Re-format. ***Important Back up Or save All files folders First***
4:) Try and obtain A Flash update Or re-flash the Firmware, if your Player supports This.
5:) Keep it as a pretty reminder of what you did Wrong, With This One, And buy another hoping you,ve learned by your mistakes. And you,ll never put the extra 1 Song on again, without deleting 2 songs before-Hand.

This Information Has been provided To you completely Free Of charge by mike @ compurepair.

Thankyou for Using FIXYA :)

SOURCE: Coby mp3 won't turn on

Here are a few suggestions:
1-Did you try charging it? If the battery is dead, You may have trouble turning it on. :P
2-If you accidently got some water in it, even a drop, that could be your problem(I've broken 1 to many things this way)
3-Did you have it near a microwave while the microwave was going? A microwave usually states instant death for mp3players and cellphones.

I'd suggest buying a new battery for it and if that doesn't work, you probablly got it wet, and will have to buy a new one.

I hope I could be of assistance, have a nice day! =D

SOURCE: I deleted the coby software on my Coby MP300

Easiest solution that comes to mind is find someone with the same player. see if you load the drivers on your pc in a file if the you can load it as a new device and open it using drivers on your pc. Just a thought. then load the files back on the unit once you get access.

Here are instructions for a solution to your Coby 610 problem.

  2. Copy all your music to a temporary folder.
  3. Disconnect your MP610 from your computer.

  6. You will see a screen with up to 24 numbered, empty boxes.
