My female cory has been acting like she wants to mate with my male cories? but they don't seem interested. what does this mean. and she has been chasing them to. not to play either but to mate.

It could mean a couple of things....It could mean that your water conditions aren't stimulating the males to breed or you don't have any males.....and your female is confused....

Corys like cool, briskly moving water conditions to breed.

Generally, when it comes to mating, it's the male fish that does the courting, not the female.

Or it could mean you males are immature and not ready to breed yet. Corys tend to chase and swim all over the tank as a group and singley.
