MY NEPHEW GAVE ME A COBY MP-C827 PLAYER THE OTHER DAY AND I PUT A BATTERY IN IT AND WHEN I PLUG IT INTO THE USB PORT ON THE COMPUTER, IT DOESN'T DO ANYTHING. ALSO, THE LITTLE LIGHT ON THE FRONT DOESN'T COME ON EITHER??? HOW DO I WORK THE THING????
I'm not sure which Coby I have but my computer wouldn't read it when I plugged it into the USB port. What worked for me was to take out the battery, plug it into the USB port, add a couple of mp3 songs, unplug it and plug it back in. It was recognized with all the existing media on it and I could edit and delete. Hopefully you have room to add an mp3 or two. My solution last time it happened was to reformat and reload.

your probably using the usb extension cable, plug the unit directly into one of the rear ports on your computer tower and it should show up..these units never break..unless there is physical damage itself.
Wow! You only have 128mb capacity. I thought my 512mb clip was small! Okay when you look at your list of songs that you are dragging to your Coby you can only add up to 128,000.000 bytes. That's probably about 20 songs, or 7 stories. When you look at your listing, and highlight it windows will add up the space you need for you. The cord connects the Coby to the usb port on your computer and also charges the Coby.
I am guessing there is a problem with the driver for the audio player. I have a Coby Audio Player MP-C827, and one day my brother decided to just remove it from the computer without correctly stopping it. Ever since, whenever I plug in it into my PC, it just does not open...nothing happens. And I don't have the cd to re-install the driver files. With respect to all of the above, a driver file which is needed by the mp3 is either damaged or corrupt. Contact me at email@example.com
