I have a Coby MP200-1GB .mp3 player. All the songs play except some, when I plug it in to my computer the songs that don't play show up, which tells me they're there but when i listen to music those songs never play. However at a certain point while listening to music on it , it freezes or just won't play. Could it be that one of the songs is actually a file that contains a virus, which causes the player to skip all the files. I used iMesh to dl the songs in question, could that have something to do with it? Thanx in advance for your help. Happy Easter/Passover.

It might be a virus, but the files just might be corrupt.
Do a virus scan with your AV on the computer then plug in your mp3 player and run this application

Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
  • Hold down the Shift key when inserting the drive until Windows detects it to keep autorun.inf from executing if it is present.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Note: As part of its routine, Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive that was plugged in when you ran it. Do not delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection by keeping the autorun file from being installed on the root drive and running other malicious files.

I figured it out, some of the files were .wma files. Just had to convert to .mp3. Thanx for your help.
