I had the same problem - VERY frustrating. Just found the answer, and am very happy to share it!
1. In setting/USB mode, select MSC mode. 2. Plug in Coby to USB 3. Open My Computer. Look for the Coby as a REMOVABLE DISK, not the Coby. Files will be there for Viewing and Deleting! (On XP, at least). 4. Make a backup of MTP.BIN and WMPInfo.xml, which I think is the operating sytem?
I got the clue from here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t357600-problem_coby_mpc7095_2_gb_mp3_player
Paupaul Well, turn on you mp3 player, go on setting/USB mode and select MSC mode.
Then plug it on your computer and check in MICIN.DIR folder. You must find them.
It wasn't exactly what I saw, but once I looked, it was all there. Perfect!

I don't have this particular device. Although some players will let you delete files from the device alone, some won't. But an mp3 player should show up on your desktop computer as an external memory storage device when connected via USB. You can open it and delete music files by dragging to trash, or by right-clicking and selecting Delete. (Windows, but probably similar on Mac).
Plug the device into a computer using the USB cable.
It should appear as a drive in "My Computer"
Open it, then delete the music files you no longer want using the delete key (they may be in a folder called "Music").
When using Windows Media Player 11 as this is common for the MPC885, you can delete songs running this software and making connection from the player to the computer using the provided USB cable.
In the Library menu of WMP11, the Coby player should show up on the left side in the list.
When clicking Music in the left corner of the second bar on top of WMP11, all music shows up from preselected synchronization maps on the computer plus the player.
Click on the player to see the content and delete the songs you'd like to remove.
The files on your music menu are connected to the folders on your
computer. You can't delete the files from your music menu. You have to
delete them (or move them) from the folder you took them from.
I suggest that you create a special folder on your computer for only
the files you wish to put in coby media manager so that when you get a
message like you mentioned you can get the files off your list by
moving them back to your normal music folder.
