i have a brand new coby mp822-4g and i plugged it into the computer with the usb cable provided and turned it on.  the welcome screen came on and says please wait, however, it has been that way for over 8 hours and i still cant change the screen or do anything with it.  i have reset and it goes right back.

    Don't buy this product. It's junk and the Coby reps will keep you on hold for an hour and then not answer your question. Then they want you to send it back to them and PAY to have it shipped back!!!! Plus! You have to pay to ship it! AND wait 8 weeks to receive the item again! I'm taking it back to Big Lots, which was my first mistake, and going to Walmart or Best Buy! They stand behind what they sell!

    i had a similar problem but if you go to cobyusa.com and search it under mp822 there's a download tab, download the updates and follow the instructions and it'll work again

    Go to cobyusa.com and search mp822 in the search box.  Choose firmware update and download the file then unzip.  download the update instructions.  Follow the instructions and it works (I had to do it twice).

    I have the exact same problem as everyone else.(frozen screen says please wait/welcome). I can't update the firmware though, because my computer doesn't even recognize that the mp3 player is plugged in, probably because it is still frozen. This is so annoying!
