Re: I can't turn ON my mp3 player samsung yp-t8

Instead of pressing the bottom right button to turn on the mp3 player, hold it down. And, I have my own problem: my mp3 player is for some reason forever stuck on hold. I can't turn it off! Help?

I can not get my yp-t8 to download to my pc my pc is xp home and the driver that ihave is win 98


If the driver you mention is only for Win98, it is of no use in XP.

For the YP-T8 there are 3 model players, that might need different driver, software and firmware (under OS there's a listing for the supported Operating Systems).
Select your model on next page:
Next select the matching driver, software for your computer.
Download and install the driver and software.

Also look under firmware, to see if there are updates for the player.

Have you tried reset button on bottom of your player, open the small clip where you recharge and you will see the small hole there. Also be certain your hold button is off.Good luck. Pedro2

How to paste a sme firmware download file to "ROOT" of my yp-t8

Ok you need to know exactly what model number player you are using as there are three versions of the YP-T8. * YP-T8A * YP-T8X * YP-T8Z Once you know that then you go to the samsung site and download the appropriate driver. Looks something like this: FM/200611/ Once you do that you have to unzip or extract the file. Windows should do this automatically. According to the directions you then take the files that it unzips and put them on your mp3 player. So connect your mp3 player to the computer via that usb cable. It should show up as a Removable Device under My Computer. Find the files you just extracted. Should be YP_T8.fnt, YP-T8.rom and YP-T8.img You then simply copy those files into the mp3 player which is that new removable device drive. The root folder is the first area you see when you first explore the drive. i.e. any folder you see on that mp3 player when you double click on it is actually a sub-folder and not the root folder. So open it up and copy those files right there. After which you then do as the directions say. Unplug the mp3 player, power it off and then connect your charger. It says it will automatically upgrade the firmware and then automatically turn on so it should just be a waiting game at that point. Good luck!

Mp3 player wont turn on...its been charging for days..

Never overcharge a li-ion battery. You must firstly 're-set' your T8 (refer to your manual, or download a manual from the Samsung website - download centre). Disregard the charging indicator, as this will always show 'charging' when connecting to a pc. If out of warranty, then you may be faced with new battery, as it is possible to fry a battery if left too long. If under warranty, then seek advice from approved Samsung service agent.

Won't turn on........

Hey, shilly, first of all, thanks for trying to help me with my problem of my mp3 player being stuck on hold. I was so frustrated after no solution to my problem that I took a samuri sword and cracked it in half. First of all, if when you plug it into your PC, and it works, you might need to charge it again. I think that you slipping into the mud had WWW.SLASHMYSEARCH.COM nothing to do with it. The battery probably overheated and stopped working. You can try to fix it, or for a cheaper price you can buy the YP-T9, the newest 2 gig model. I hope this helps!

Converting MPEG-4 files into svi

Hmph. You got me thinking. Well, here are some suggestions: 1)try to re-install samsung multimedia studio. 2)try a different mpeg4 file to convert. If that doesn't work, something is terribly wrong. 3)go to this site: A download for k-lite codec pack should instantly start. Hope this works! If none of these work, then you may just have a virus somewhere.
