Make sure your player is not active. Unplug it from your computer and turn it off. Now plug into your computer. Go to the start menu on your computer and select "run". Type in the port your unit is plugged into or use the dropdown and select. This should display your 705 contents. Highlight the file you want to delete, then right click and select delete. Hope this helps.

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:
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!

SOURCE: Deleted songs are still there!
I agree with profalwg, use Windows Explorer. When you connect the player's USB cable to the computer, a window should open...click on the option to open with Windows Explorer. If you delete files and they still don't go away (happens sometimes) go into the player's Setup menu & change the USB setting to MSC. Doing this corrects 99% of player recognition problems. Hope this helps!

On the MP610 you could use either Windows Media Player 11 or Coby Media Manager for transfers of songs.
Next steps are important for adding files onto the player:
1. The player should be detected in the software for transfers, when connecting the USB cable.
2. Setup your library in the software (Add to library): There has to be a list of folders in the software manager, where your music is located on the computer.
3. Create a playlist in the software: make a list of songs, you want to transfer onto your player
4. Sync the playlist onto the player.
