Samsung YP-S3JAB/XAC mp3 player

I have a Samsung YP-S3JAB/XAC but when I try to transfer a video file to it, the status bar comes up but doesn't fill up. After about 1-2 minutes it disappears and hasn't accomplished anything. How do I transfer the files?

    I can load music and photos, but not videos. Same problem as Fred - the status bar comes up, then just disappears.

Cannot be recognised on my USB ports


The CD supplied does not have drivers on it. This is a flash player so your PC should recognise it automaticaly.

If this is not happening, please try installing an MTP Porting Kit via the microsoft.com website.

Hi I have a YP-S3 mp3 player samsung, but I can't transfer files for my device. It should work with the program Emodio. I have the latest version.


the emodio software has MANY glitches. mine works when i un install and reinstall and then wait a day. sounds stupid but works. OR drag and drop music to it thru windows you can open device files and see items. if video you must convert then drag and drop. dont have unit plugged in and right click video in emodio and move to convert.

My samsung yp-s3 mp3 player wont let me put videos on it


After 2 days of figuring out, I came with the solution today. Most probably your computer is running under windows vista. well emodio doesnt support such to do the transfer. What I did is downloaded a program (free) called "any video converter". All videos have to be converted in WMV extension file, so emodio can recognize and does the conversion to SVI ( the yp-s3 extension). So after you convert the original files into WMV files, take the converted files and add them into emodio. Emodio will convert it into SVI, but the transfer to the MP3 will failed. This is the magic:

close emodio. Leave your MP3 conected. Go to where emodio saves the converted files. When u go to that folder, you will see your files, but you can tell your computer wont be able to play it, as the files icon is just with a white background. Just drag it into the YP-S3 video folder and voila! Disconnect your MP3 from the computer, turn it on and enjoy your videos!!!!!!!!!!

Download the emodio software, install and add files from DESKTOP!!!!! (copy there). Once into Emodio, click the arrow over to convert and transfer. Let it convert and try to transfer.....after it reports failed to transfer, go to default folder for converted file(win7 is documents/video/emodio/videos) copy to s3/s3/video.

Can Transfer Pics and music but not video


download Emodio from emodio.com
this is the solution !!!!!!
after the installation , the software should recognize ur device , and allow u to transfer videos
if not , try to reinstall emodio ,
after the 2nd installation , it will work completely
the software allows you to transfer videos to the mp3 ,
or at least convert them easily to .svi format , and then u can easily copy and paste them in your mp3

Samsung yp s3 doesnt work on xp


I have Windows XP and Media Player 10.

I had same problem with Samsung media studio not recognizing MP3 player. Here is how I fixed it. With the MP3 plugged in, I had to go into System/ Hardware/Device Manager and find the S3 driver under "Windows portable Media" and uninstall it. Then unplug and replug the S3 into the usb so that driver gets reinstalled.

Then I decided windows media player and samsung media studio are unnecessary for transferring music files to MP3 player.

Instead I go into Portable Media Devices from the control panel and just treat the MP3 player like a usb device. I copy folders of music and songs into the Music folder on the MP3. For me this is way easier than the Samsung music studio or Windows Media player.
