Question about Samsung YP-K3 MP3 Player

YP-K3 Samsung Logo Problem

My MP3 has been working relatively well, giving me the least of the problems most people get. I went to put more pictures on it today, however, and it wouldn't recognize that the ones i'd already put on it were there; then, when I tried to put them on, it couldn't sync them with it.

To top all this off, I now have the MP3 player with the Samsung logo frozen on the screen; the only way to power it off is to hit the reset button.

Any ideas?

    I don't know that it can be recognized by the computer anymore; last time I tried it, it wouldn't see the mp3 player.

    I'll give it a shot, nonetheless. Thanks!

    I don't know how to give it a hard reset, because I can't access anything on it, either from the device itself, or the computer.

    The batteries are built-in.

    Doing a hard reset like that doesn't do anything; it still loads just up to the Samsung logo, then freezes.

    ...That was completely surprising.

    It just turned back on, and went to the main menu. Hoorah!! XD

I cannot import music to my mp3 yp-k3

You'll need to replace/update your firmware (the software package that makes the player work), and you can do that at the Samsung site here:

*I can't give you the exact page cuz Samsung makes a lot of YP-K3s and that's all you gave me to work with...You'll have to get the rest of the model number from the back of the player and pick it from the list above.
