Question about Samsung YP-K3 MP3 Player

Open Question

Cannot read Artist tunes. All tracks in the ''Unknown'' Artist.

Hi! I was wondering if someone could help me out with a probem I have with my Samsung YP-K3 MP3. Recently I've been having trouble with sorting out my tracks in Artist Folder Categories. When I check the MP3 whil it's connected with the USB cable to the Computer, I can clearly see that my tracks are in the right Artist Folder. Like for example, an Iron Maiden tune, it is perfectly placed in the Iron Maiden folder. But when I play the music on the mp3 (while it's unplugged from the computer!), the tune isnt in the Iron Maiden folder anymore. It's now instead in the ''Unknown'' folder, along with hundres of other tunes that has been misplaced and mashed into the unknown mess. How do I fix this? I really need to have my tunes organisated. I need to regain the order in my MP3. Thank you for reading, Hope that you can help me! =)

If you have Windows Media Player, just plug it in using the proprietary usb cable, and it should show up in Media Player. Click the Sync tab, and simply drag and drop.

SOURCE: samsung Yp-K3 is lock.. how can i solve?

Sometimes my yp-k3 gets stuck on lock.
I will put it back to unlock, but it still says that its locked on the screen. What I do is I just keep flipping the switch until it works. There isn't really a fix for this one. You can try turning it off and then on again.

MyX3 CD player won't recognise either the album, artist or tracks when I put a cd in, so I cant save the tracks to memory


Just a possibility. Is this with all CD's? Are they home made audio cd's and do they have the meta data tags and file names correctly stored on the disks? Often home produced compilation cd's just say "unknown artist, unknown track"

I have a Coby MP620-8G mp3 player. For some reason, I've been getting a whole bunch (at least 15 albums) of my artists thrown into the Unknown Artist category, making it difficult to find songs. In my...


I just had this problem as well. Find one of the files that is showing up on the MP3 player as "Unknown Artist" in your iTunes library. Right click that song/file and click "Get Info". You'll most likely find that the song is an "ACC Audio File" which happens often when you copy CDs or download from the iTunes Store. Close the info window about the song and then you can select the entire album or individual songs from your iTunes playlist that are showing up as "Unknown Artist". Once all the songs that you need are selected, right click again and select "Create MP3 Version". This will create a duplicate, however, so you'll want to go back to the main library in iTunes (or stay there if you are already there) and then remove the original "ACC" versions. You can, if you'd like, keep them on your hard drive, but you really don't need them because MP3 is the standard. From here you can remove those files from the Coby MP3 player and replace them with the new MP3 versions you have created in iTunes.
I hope this helps!

I have 2GB clip and every time I download some


Hi there !!!

When you say every time you download some files and if it says UNKNOWN. Then i would say the ID3 TAGS could be an issue.
This issue occurs when information in a track's ID3 tag is missing or incorrect.
ID3 tags
allows information such as the title, artist, album, track number, or other information about the file to be stored in the file itself.

In order to fix this up. Kindly follow any of these steps..

Step 1:

1. Open Windows Media Player.
2. Under Library, look for the file to be edited.
3. Right-click the file, then select Advanced Tag Editor.
4. Enter the proper data for the fields available (i.e., Title of the track, Artist Name, Album Name, Genre, Track number, etc.)
5. Click Apply then OK.

Step 2:

Using Windows Explorer
1. Look for the location of the file.
2. Right-click on the file, then select Properties.
3. Click the Summary tab.
4. Click the Advanced >> button.
5. Look for the information you want to edit under Property.
6. Click the space under Value to edit the information.
7. Click Apply then OK.

All downloaded music is "unknown" artist, title etc.


Hey, I am not sure about ubunta but in Windows, you need a program that "tags" the MP3. Just google MP3 tag editor and you will find some programs that do this. Again, not sure about ubunta but give it a shot. What this program does is let you edit the MP3 to the fullest. Song title, artist, album, everything...Check it out....
