Question about Samsung YP-K5 MP3 Player
I plug in the usb cable and the player says you are connected, but radio or music or pictures do not sound or show. The devise looks like dead, although the PC recognizes it in the explorer window.
I cannot switch off the player (for just charging)....
I have an older plaer also, which plays while connected to a PC.
SO I am not sure if this is bug or feature......
Thanks for help in advance

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 tried this from another site. I totally unplugged my computer. Let it sit for AT LEAST 10 seconds. ( I did mine for about a minute) plugged it back up, turned on the puter and opened up my music stuff (rhapsody) and plugged the player back in. recognized immediately. I don't think you have to open up your music suit, i just did that. I think the key is to unplug the puter. Good Luck and happy holidays!

if you are haveing a problem with your computer not recognizing your media divice you should go to the start button on your computer then right click on your (my computer) button then go to properties then go to hardware and then device manager now in your device manager window you should scroll down untill you find the USB controllers and in that tab go to the usb conection that has the question mark then right click on the item and go to properties then search for the key words mass storage device and then troubleshoot the item or try to reinstall this device.
