MTP Device not recognised

I recently purchased a YP-K5 MP3 Player, when installing the hardware onto my computer, the action was not happening. The reason, no drivers for this was available. I have tried everything and even downloaded the Driver Detective which did not work either. Is there anyone out there who can help please?

Make sure your Windows Media Player installation is complete and uncorrupoted. Try reinstalling WMP11 from the Microsoft website (WGA workarounds do not work for this purpose). Also try updating your USB drivers: just delete the existing ones in Device Manager, reboot and let Windows reinstall them.

HI
You should not need a driver if you using Windows XP or Vista.
Windows will recognize the driver as a Mass storage device.

but you can also try this website.

My Samsung YP-S2 Mp3 player can't be recognised by computers when I plug it in through the usb input (it used to work), therefore I'm not able to upload music on it anymore. How can I fix this bug?


Samsung Player Is No Longer Detected By Windows XP, Vista, Emodio Or
Samsung Media Studio.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When your computer doesn't recognize your Samsung MP3 player, programs
such as Samsung Media Studio (SMS), Emodio, Windows Media Player
(10 or 11) do not allow you to transfer files to your player.
In SMS and Emodio, the portable icon appears grayed out.
In Windows Media Player, you are prompted to connect a device.
Your PC may fail to recognize your player for a variety of reasons.
To begin troubleshooting, scroll down, and then click the operating
system your computer is currently running.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
General Operating System Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
On Windows computers, Samsung MP3 players require at least Windows XP
Service Pack 2. If you have an older operating system such as Windows
2000 or Windows 98, your computer won't recognize your player until you
upgrade your PC to at least Windows XP Service Pack 2.
If your PC is running Linux or MAC, it will not recognize some MP3
players that support only MTP mode. However, it will recognize players
that support UMS mode and list them as mass storage devices.
The following Samsung MP3 players support UMS: YP-U1, YP-U2, YP-U3,
YP-U4, YP-U5, and YP-S2.
The following Samsung MP3 players support both MTP and UMS mode: YP-Z5
and YP-P3.
Windows Vista may fail to detect you device if the player is not
connected properly, Windows Media Player is not installed or has become
corrupted, Vista is unable to install the MTP drivers, or the MTP patch
is not installed.
You can check it out further by going to this website and entering the information about your player

4:scroll down and select install new hardware device
5:select install hardware that i manually select from a list

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.
