    I have a Coby MP-C854 MP3 and it works mostly except that I have an issue with copying off voice recordings. It says correctly that I have 4 recordings when i look at its LCD screen and will play them on the unit. When i go to transfer them to my computer only the first wav file is recognized.

    I have a coby MPC854 MP3 player, but I am using Windows 98. The instructions are telling me to go to to get the driver/software download, but there is no product information for the MPC854. How do I get the software, so that I am able to download music onto the MP3player?

    You may need to change the USB mode on the player. I have 2 coby mp3 players (one with a screen and one without). The one with the screen MP-C854 has to change the USB mode for the device to be seen as a "file drive" by the computer when plugged in.

    Press the M button to display the menu

    Press > to display SETTING

    Press >|| to select SETTING

    Press > 9 times to select USB MODE

    Press >|| to select USB MODE

    Press > to toggle between MSC and MTP mode

    When MSC is displayed press >|| to select it

    Then your device should be recognized to copy files easily.

    The reason for no room... The computer won't recognize the files that were on the device before changing from media device to mp3 stick (flashdrive).

    To clear the old files, go back to the media device format, delete the files, and then change the device type.

    Now my Coby mp-c7082 blinks out randomly with a 'format error' message and reboots... even with the right type of files. It occasionally wants to 'remix' my mp3 files too... actually mixing snippets of different files into a melange of nonsense audio. Still working on it with their tech support people. A Windows reformat of the device had no effect and no one is stating if there's any way to reset the bios.

    I have loaded the file and when I try to play music on the Coby MP3 player, it says "No File". This is very frustrating. I reformatted and it still says "No File". It's going back to the store tomorrow!

When I first connected my Coby, all my existing music files (3GB) synched onto the device automatically. I didn't want most of them on there, but couldn't see them in Windows Explorer or Windows Media Player. I finally had to us a paper clip to reset the device, then they became visible in Explorer and I deleted them.

But then I lost the ability to drag playlists into the device while in Windows Media Player. The files synch over but not the playlist. So my only way to create a playlist right now is to go into Windows Explorer (with the device connected), browse to the Music folder, then down to Playlists, and create a new folder there. Then I can copy files into the folder and access them on the device from the Music Explorer section. Kind of cumbersome but at least I can organize songs on the device.

Don't buy Coby products because they don't work and the tech support sucks

Tried to run a full system backup with FreeAgent Go. Backup failed and it looks like some files and programs were deleted from my computer in the process.

Unless you asked the backup program to delete files it won't. The program may have deleted some files it created for its own use.
What error code did it give for failing the back up. How do you know you need the deleted files?

I deleted my audio files directly from the computer. Now that I try to record again, the device says that memory is full, even though I have no files on it. How do I reset it to record again?

To erase a selected file, first press the [ERASE] button. Next, press the [+] (plus) or [-] (minus) button to select "ERASE," and then press the [ERASE] or [OK] button.
To erase all files in a folder, first select the folder and press the [ERASE] button for three seconds or longer. Next, press the [+] (plus) or [-] (minus) button to select "ALL ERASE." Finally, press the [ERASE] or [OK] button.
The recorder should be formatted using only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder's Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder, so computer formatting is not recommended. Individual files can be deleted using the computer with no negative effects.

My WS 100 says FULL and won't either let me put it

The recorder should be formatted only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder's Menu. Using a computer to format the recorder may corrupt or delete system files needed to run the recorder, so formatting via the computer is not recommended.
Individual files can be deleted from the recorder while it is connected to a computer without negative effects.

Lost storage capacity

I had the same exact problem... then someone told me the fix... you have to "empty trash" on your computer (when the camcorder is plugged into your USB) - this will "empty" the trash on your computer, but also empty on your flip too...

I guess what happens when you delete all files from the "100 Video" file is that your camcorder moves all files into its own "trash" (on the device) - so the camera "shows" that there are no videos, but in reality, they are still on the flash memory on the device..

hope this makes sense and works for you.
