Question about Coby MPC895 MP3 Player

1 Answer

The Safely Remove Hardware dialog box does not appear

Hi,
I just got the Coby mp3 player and when I connect it to my computer the "Safely Remove Hardware" box never appears.
Even though I can find the Coby player in the computer and I can drag mp3 files to it (and the player is working normally), I'm worried that nothing happens when I connect it or disconnect it. No symbol appears!
I already checked and there´s no sign of the player in the Safely remove hardware box, as though the device were not recognised.
I have connected it to other computers and the same thing happens. With my old mp3 player I just connected it and the dialog box simply popped up.
What should I do? Is it dangerous for my computer or mp3 to be using it this way?
Thank you very much!

    Thanks for the reply, the mp3 is working fine on my computer although the safely remove hardware box is not showing.

    But I connected it to a different computer today and the Coby icon is not showing and I am not able to open it, not even play files. What could be causing this, if it works fine on my computer?

    Thanks again!

    Just in case someone else has the problems: If you go to Settings- Usb type: Choose "Msc". If you select that option the mp3 will open the Remove Hardware dialog box and the mp3 will be working fine.

Not really, you may be able to select the option, if you right click on the drive in my computer, but they don't always disconnect the hardware anyway, so just remove it as lons as you know there is no activty

How to unfreeze coby mp600


Hello

Download the firmware update and save it to a location on your hard drive that you will be able to remember. This firmware includes a specific fix for the multiple reasons that the device is freezing.

Press and hold the "Menu" button on the player, then connect the Coby to your computer's USB port. The power on the MP3 player must be turned off when completing this step. If your MP3 is frozen, unable to be powered down, use the push pin to push the "Reset" button on the bottom of the device.

Let go of the "Menu" button on the player once the "Found New Hardware" screen appears. When asked if Windows can connect to Windows Update to perform a search for the necessary software, click "Yes, this time only," then click the "Next" button.


Choose "Install from a list or specific location(advanced)" to determine where Windows should look for the driver files, then click on the "Next" button.

Place a check mark in the box labeled "Include this location in the search," then click "Browse." You can search for the directory location where you saved the driver file in Step 1. Double-click the driver package and select the "usb_driver" sub folder as the driver location. Click "OK," then "Next."


Select the "m3usb" file from the "usb_driver" folder when prompted on the next screen, then click "Open" and "OK." The "Completing New Found Hardware" screen will appear once the drivers have been successfully installed, then press "Finish."

Unplug the Coby MP3 player from your computer.

Double-click the "USB tool" EXE that is located in the "MP3 Firmware Update" folder that you downloaded in Step 1. The USB Tool application's welcome screen appears on your computer.

Press the "Menu" button on the Coby MP3, holding it down as you reconnect it to your computer. Your MP3 is now identified as "Device 0" within the USB Tool, and you have a yellow-colored status box when connected.

Click "Burn NAND" to begin the firmware correction process. After about four or five minutes, you receive a notification saying, "Burn Task Completed."


Disconnect the MP3 player from your computer, and wait for the device to power up completely.

Click the next series of green boxes that have red lines going through them on the screen with your finger or a stylus until the menu appears. You see them in the top-right and lower-left corners of the MP3's screen as calibration on the device is being completed. The firmware is now installed.

I have a Coby MP620. It says to drag and drop files to the music.dir folder but I have no such folder. I have the movie, photo and text files but no music. I have no idea what to do next.


When your MP3 Player is connected to a computer, you may transfer music files to your MP3 player using your operating system's basic file management commands (i.e., copy-and-paste or drag-and-drop).Connect the Coby MP3 player to your computer through its USB adapter. Select "Open folder to view files" from the new device dialog box that pops up. If the new device dialog does not appear upon the hardware's connection, click "Start," click "My Computer" and right-click the Coby MP3 player's device icon in Windows Explorer .Click "Start," click "My Music" and open the folder containing the music you wish to transfer onto the Coby MP3 player. Drag and drop the music files or folders into the Coby MP3 player's open directory. Alternatively, you can highlight the music files or folders and click the "Copy the selected" link from the Files and Folders Tasks menu in the left column. Select the "Removable Disk" drive from the list of destinations.

    How do you download songs from computer's music files? I copied and pasted from my library,they appear on the player when connected t computer but are not there when disconnected?


    Hello,

    Transfers onto he MP815 can be done through exploring 'My Computer':
    Music files must be copied into the Media folder of the player.
    In this mode, the player shows as a removable disk in the computer folders.
    Before disconnecting the player, always go through the safely remove hardware icon in the right corner below on the computer's screen.

    When you're using a software program (e.g. Coby Media Manager or Windows Media Player) for transfers, use the help function in the software.
    For Windows Media Player 11:
    0. The player should be detected when you connect the USB cable.
    1. Setup a library in WMP 11 [ Add to Library ], so the player knows the location of your music files.
    2. Create playlist: put songs in a list
    3. Sync the list onto the player
    4. Wait until synchronizing has finished
    Do not disconnect while sync is busy: a message appears when you're allowed to disconnect.

    No software is required or supplied for this product . You just have to plug it in your PC's USB port and it will appear as another drive in "Computer".

    To copy or save songs, double-click on the drive icon and do it just like you would save to a hard drive.

    To remove from PC, look for the small USB icon near the system clock, left-click on it and select "Safely Remove".

    Hi,

    Power ON the frame.

    Connect the small end of the USB cable to the USB port on the side panel of the Digital Photo Frame.

    Connect the larger end of the USB cable to the USB port on your computer.

    You will see some extra "Removable Disc" drives in "My Computer" -- One for each of the memory card slots on the Digital Photo Frame.

    And the last one is for the Internal Memory of the frame. Double-click on the last "Removable Disc" icon to access the internal memory of the frame.

    From here you can copy images and music files to the frame. You need to transfer the images or music files into this folder (which is the internal memory of the frame).

    Copy the files from your computer and paste them in this folder.

    The picture files should be in the "standard JPEG" format and the music files should be in the "mp3" format.

    To disconnect the Digital Photo Frame from your computer:
    In Windows, on the bottom taskbar, right click the icon which appears in a green color, (this icon has an arrow pointing towards the left) and select "Safely Remove Hardware".

    The Safely Remove Hardware" dialog box will appear.

    Select "USB Mass Storage Device" and click "STOP"
    On the next dialog box, click "OK" to remove the storage device.

    On the next dialog box, select "CLOSE" and disconnect the USB cable from your computer.

    Now you should be able to see the pictures on the digital photo frame.

    Now you can play.

    Good Luck.

    Live, Love, Laugh.
