if your itunes is running it should try and open in itunes.

If it doesn;t work,
Try another USB port preferrably a USB 2.0 port.

I need help with my coby/media player for vista


I work for Coby technical support. Our customer service phone number is 1-800-727-3592.

You don't need to use Windows Media Player in order to put music on your player. There are various reasons why it may not be syncing. Below are instructions for how to put music on the player using copy and paste. It's the easiest way to add music to any regular MP3 player.

How to load an MP3 player without using Windows Media Player. First, allow me to clarify a few things so that there is less confusion: When you connect an mp3 player to a computer, you will not be able to use it until it's disconnected. In other words, the only thing you should do while the player is plugged into the computer is adding or deleting files. You can't use the buttons on the player while it's communicating with the computer, and as long as it's connected to the USB port, it's communicating. Ok, let's get started! Step 1 Connect the player to your USB port using the cable that came with it. (NOTE): If the player has a male USB connector already on it, connect the player directly into the computer without using the cable. In other words, only use a cable if you have to. Step 2 Click the "Start" button or press the key on the keyboard that has the Windows logo, and go to My Computer (Windows XP) or Computer (Vista). Step 3 Locate your MP3 player on this screen. Do not close this window; just minimize it. (NOTE): It should show up under Devices with Removable Storage or as a device under "Other." Most importantly, it should show up on this screen as something! When the player is connected, you should have something on this screen (usually an icon of some sort) that represents the player. This lets you know that the unit is ready to receive files because it's being recognized by your computer. Step 4 Locate and open the folder that contains your music files. Step 5 Using the mouse, copy one or more files. (Right mouse click on file, then left mouse click on copy) Step 6 Go back to the "My Computer" or "Computer" screen, right mouse click on the icon representing the player and left mouse click on paste. You should see a small status bar appear showing the file(s) being copied from your music folder to the player. Step 7 Click on the Safe to Remove icon found in your system tray and disconnect the player. And that's it! If you need additional assistance, I will help in any way that I can.

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!

To smeyer1. Instead of going through windows media player, just try dragging and dropping the files directly into the player on 'my computer'. WMP is pretty touchy these days about DRM issues.

To fix this try the following using an account with administrator privileges and internet access:

1. Open Device Manager (While holding the windows key, press the Pause / Break key. This will open up the System Properties box. Select the Hardware tab and click Device Manager)

4. Click Update Driver...
5. Select Yes, this time only

Does not recognize


Comment by vickisanchez, posted on Mar 19, 2008 IT FINALLY WORKS !!!!

Sandisk Tech support had me do the following:

- Turn it OFF
- Put it in the HOLD position
- HOLD the center button IN while plugging into USB port, continue to hold for 5 to 7 sec even after plugged in.
At this point MY COMPUTER recognized it. And it worked.

He also had me to:

- go to WWW.MICROSOFT.COM
- In the upper right hand search bar, type in MTP PORTING KIT
I did this and downloaded the first one. Now my Sansa Clip work perfect. I wish I would have talked to him last week before I returned the last one, for the same reasons.

If this does not help call the 1-800 # , opt #4, and ask for GUY (yes that is really his name) out of 5 or so calls to Tech Support he is the only one who knew what he was doing, and how to actually HELP.
GOOD LUCK

Virging 5000 does not open


I have fixed this, and I hate this player, however this is the solution

I've uploaded ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED on this rapidshare link, I format my player and bringit back to life with only this...
http://rapidshare.com/files/106001227/Player.rar.html

1.- unrar to the player
2.- try if it works, if not go to 2.1
2.1.- install the software, included in the rar file, then try if it works it should

IMPORTANT: when you have manage to make it work do this, it will save you a lot of time

1.- browse your player to the system/data folder and backup those files, if you get any future troubles (like no music found, strange characters instead of artist's list) replace those files with your backup, backup those files always after adding new music!!!

2.- save the rar file I've uploaded, if you have the wmp plugin already installed and you get the "Oh dear this hard disk doesn't work" message again, just format the player, and put every single file from the rar to the player

3.- excuse my english...
any further problems --> msn: sebastianoo7@hotmail.com

4.- help other virgin 5gb users

Computer doesn't recognize unit when connected


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 ramone.williams89@gmail.com

Sansa media converter will not recognize my mp3 player


The Media Converter will only recognize the device in MSC mode.

Make sure it is on this mode and try all of the USB ports on your PC. If that doesnt work, try uninstalling and re-installing the Media Converter.




Best of Luck.
