Summary: If I could give this device a review of less than one star I would. An MP3 player is nothing more than a usb memory stick with a player wrapped around it. It should just work. However I've run into the following while attempting to set it up. 1. Unrecognized device.
Summary: As a novice, I needed some help figuring out how to load onto a data card instead of to the memory, the directions were not clear about how to do that. The single AAA battery only lasted the length of 4 mp3 cd's.
Summary: Bought this for my Girlfriend to use at work. I gave it two stars because it's functional, and it looks good (she really likes it). Memory expansion is a plus. FM works fine, decent reception. The third star is because its relatively simple to use/figure out.
Summary: Cute device. Plugged it into XP computer, found the device, assigned it to drive G. Tried to look at G, said Insert disk for drive G. Technical support line busy. Finally got through, talked to someone for 2 minutes, they put me on hold and then hung up. I am returning it tomorrow.
Summary: This is an excellent product, hence the four stars. However, if you want to play it a lot, you must must must invest in batteries galore. The battery life is ridiculously low. The sound quality is nice enough.
Summary: The Coby MP-C741 I bought won't work. Sometimes it plays one song o.k., but when it switches to the next song, it always switches to fast forward mode, and then there is no sound. If I fast backward the song, it starts playing, only to start the next song in fast forward mode.
Summary: I put it because one of the reviews here said the player came with a CD that had the Windows 98 driver. Well it didn't. And the driver at Coby's web site doesn't work. I installed it but Windows reports no driver. Fortunantly I bought it locally and can return it. But I'm agrreivated.
Summary: I was just looking for something to listen to music to while I worked out. This player is very basic, but for the money does exactl what it says. It holds enough songs to get me through a 2 1/2 hour routine. Sounds pretty good and is very easy to work.
