Question about Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player
I plug YP-U3 player into USB port. screen says "USB Connecting..." then changes after 2 seconds to "Disconnected" and the device starts charging ok. I cannot get the computer to see the device at all.
Found the solution on another site (http://www.everythingusb.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=11238). To quote user AFHavemann :
"* Plug in the player so the USB bus can see it.
* Once it’s recognized (i.e., the device screen reads "Charging" and "USB Disconnected"), go to the Control Panel and click "System"
* Choose "Hardware" then "Device Manager" tab.
* Look for the name of your device under “Portable Devices” in the list
* If the name of your player is under “MTP Device” then the correct drivers are probably loaded
* Right-click on the name of your device and click "Properties"
* Click “Update Driver”"
Then follow the prompts from there. The computer searches for the driver software, etc., and reinstalls/resets information related to the device, which fixed things such that the computer will now recognize the device. I'm not sure what causes the problem, but this solution seems to reset whatever's gone wrong.

I have a working one yp-u3 on a laptop, xp sp3, with windows mediaplayer 11. I checked the drivers of it. it is using wmp11-based drivers. so use/install wmp11 for smooth working (?). it came with a software called emodio (a complex mediaplayer/organizer); its firmware 1.13 eu. it looks newer...

The solution is it wont support for windows media player older versions...
atleat your Pc should have windows media player 10 or 11 installed...
that is the only solution that i have understood by putting my MP3 in to different systems...

SOURCE: how do I charge Samsung
The player needs to be charged via the USB connnection on your PC. If it doesnt fit, try the USB ports on the back. If its not working/not charging, please test the MP3 player on another PC.

With the YP-u3 connected to the USB port and internet connected, start Samsung Media Studio software, you should get notification of a firmware update to download which fixed the recognition problem for me
