    How to Put Use a Coby MP3 Player: Songs on a Coby MP3 Player

    Open Windows Media Player installed on your computer. Click the Sync tab at the top of the screen.

    Connect the Coby MP3 player to your computer via the USB cable. Plug one end of the cable into the Coby device, and the other end into a free USB port on the front or back of your computer. If you own the Coby stick MP3 player, plug it directly into a USB port on your computer. Your computer will recognize the Coby device, and it will show up as a device in the top-right corner of the screen in Windows Media Player.

    Click Library on the left side of the screen. Double-click Songs in the middle of the window.

    Find the songs you want to put on your Coby MP3 player. Right-click each song and click Add to Sync List from the menu. The song will now be listed on the right side of the screen. Repeat this process for each song you want to put on the Coby device.

    When you have finished adding the songs you want on the Coby device, click the Start Sync tab beneath the list of songs. The sync process will begin, and the list of sings you added will now be on the Coby MP3 player.

    It is just as easy to delete songs from the Coby device as it is to add them.
