Typically this is the beginning of the end for your player. However there are some things to try. You can take a pair of pliers and bend ever so slightly as USB cable so that it places pressure on the bottom part of the connection on your MP3 player. I would try this with a cable you don't care for. I wouldn't suggest doing anything with the player. So many users bring my their blackberries that have the same issue. Most users do not come back to see me for quite a while or until the device is dead. These devices require tight connections, the only other option is pressure and that is what bending the plug does. Lastly, notice the two little notches that come from the wider side of the metal part of the USB connection. Are they protruding up even slightly? That may tell you something is wrong with your USB cables.

You need to download Odin for Windows, then download 4.1.1 firmware for your model. If it downloads in .zip files you need to decompress. After decompressing the file you will see a .tr.md5 file, this the firmware itself, this is the one you are going to flash. Also you need to have the drivers for you model device already install, you don't have them yet, install Kies and after installation reboot your computer.
Now, turn off the phone, and to make sure nothing goes wrong let's hard reset the phone first by pressing and holding at the same time the volume up, home and power key, until you see the recovery page. Now choose Wipe data/ factory, press the power key to select, scroll down to yes and press the power key.
Do the same for Wipe Cahe. Once that is done, go back to the recovery main page and select Reboot. Turn off the phone again, this time press Volume down, home and power key at the same time until you see the Android logo, this is the download page. Press the volume up rocker to start the download, open Odin, connect the USB cable to the GS3. Notice at top of Odin different squares, at the bottom of the first square it should display the com you're using, if it doesn't show anything then you need to re-install the drivers for your device.
Once it shows the com number you are ready to go, make sure that Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time are checked, leave the others uncheck. Now click PDA, or in latex versions of Odin is AP, search for the .tar.md5 files that was decompress and choose it. Now click start at the bottom of Odin and wait until it shows Pass. Now you should be in 4.1.1 stock ROM. If you are rooted, this will unroot your phone.

What version of windows are you using? Some versions will mark it not the brand but as an extra storage device. For instance I have a Sansa Fuze windows xp marks as extra storage while my vista my win7 and win 8 say Sansa Fuze.... This is a common problem with windows though a lot of mp3 show as an extra storage instead of the brand and/or model. This also more so if the mp3 is actually a lot newer than you OS. So if you open my computer/computer and notice an extra storage device added then I would most like say it's your player. Just a thought you may want to make sure you have all updates for you pc and check to see if there is firmware for you mp3. These could also be why it is not showing as you brand and or unit. My Sansa c240 older mp3 use to show up on xp as extra storage until I got all the updates. If there is still the problem of it not showing up even as extra storage then contact the company about the issue.

Any Mini-B USB cord will work. Its a fairly common cord size. So if you have an older digital camera the cord from that should be the same. Most modern cells use a Micro-USB, but if you got an older cell the transfer cable from that might be a Mini-B.

Or buy a replacement. Newegg or Amazon both will have them for less then 5 bucks. You can find them at most electronic stores, them just might costa little more.
Search for Mini-B USB cord/cable.

I run into this problem quite a bit.
According to the Coby web site, there is no 765.
The closest thing to it is the 755.

This could be very simple to repair. They are usually driven by a small belt which has either snapped or fell off.

If the parts were lost while removing the device from the cigarette lighter, wouldn't they be somewhere in the vehicle? In any event, since it is from Coby you will have to find parts from some other source.

There are several brands and publishers of audio books and you didn't identify yours. In most cases professionally produced audio books are separated into several 3-6 minute tracks. your CD player should just skip to the next using the button with the single arrow pointing to the vertical line. >l

When listening to audio books, If I'm using a cd player that doesn't retain the last track when shut off I make a mental note of the track number.

Hope this helps
