Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Unlike my other MP3 player, the S3 by default is not recognized as a stanrdard USB device. The S3 is an MTP device. MTP is Microsoft's protocol for communicating with the S3.
Window's Media Player 10 or higher will recognize the S3.
Vista will automatically recognize the S3 as well.
There is a firmware upgrade you can try to make the S3 be seen as standard USB device (UMS Mode).

Hope this helps

Go into contol panel then system. click the hardware tab then device manager. you will see your s3 as a yellow exclamation mark meaning not recognised. double click on it then 'update driver' make sure the automatically find driver is selected. windows will find a microsoft mtp generic driver and install it. you will now be able to look through your s3 files and add/delete files as normal.

You can go to Samsung's website and go to the Support section to get that software. Because of the way that Samsung designs their website, I cannot give you a direct link, because they require you to manually enter in your model # before you can go on.

I had the same problem and an older PC using XP Professional. With a bit of research I found the corrective action.
1. The Samsung must be properly identified by windows as a storage device.
This is accomplished by obtaining the Update for WMDRM-enabled Media Players (KB891122) from Microsoft. The driver is a part of media player but it is listed seperately.
2. Once you have updated the driver the My Computer Should Identify a MTP Drive using the S3 as an identifier. You could drag and drop the data using the drive section or continue with the third step listed.
3. Reload the Samsung Media Studio and the S3 portable device will be enabled.

I found this on the Samsung site you will need to select your
specific version 4gb or 8gb.
It has the software download as well as the user manual.
