Samsung media studio gone crazy

Hi, i recently bought a samsung ypt8 mp3 player, which works fine, and came along with samsung media studio program. it was working until i got a new ext.hard drive and put all my music onto it. problem is that even though all the music is mp3s it shows an invalid format type, in exclamation mark.. cannot upload any of these onto player, as only mp3 and wma are allowed. tried to change the tags but nothing helps, funny thing is that it recognizes about two out of ten songs on each album... any suggestions ?

Re: samsung media studio gone crazy

I think you have a virus on your computer. If there is any hope for your songs, try to copy them to another computer. If they don't work there, they are probably infected. Sorry!

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.

Samsung media studio??

You have to update the driver of you player.
Click on START menu and RUN.
Type in devmgmt.msc and click ENTER.
Now you Device Manager will pop up. Look for your player under Other Devices or Portable Devices
Once you find it, right click on it and select Update Driver (make sure the installer disc is in your CD drive).
It should work fine after that.

How to put videos on a samsung t10

Hey man! I cannot directly answer your question yet because I haven't done much with video for the T10 yet. Like you, I tried a couple with WMP and one worked while the other didn't. I did find what looks like a very good conversion program that might fix your problems. It's at:

I'm going to check it out and will advise if it works for me. If you do it before I do, please let me know, too. Between the two of us, we should be able to figure it out.

Playlists disappeared from Samsung Media Studio, but still on K3!

Well you don't have to use that program. First connect you're mp3 to you're computer. If you're using a PC and not mac there's always Windows Media Player or if you click on the start button on the desktop in the bottom left corner and menu will appear. Click on my computer, there will be a list of items are one of them should be the name of your Mp3 player. Click it and you can access the files on your Mp3 player. If you wish to rather use Window Media Player open it first. On the left hand side there should be a list of the tracks on your library, playlists and you're Mp3. You can access you're files from there aswell. The other thing about windows media maker is you can also synchonize songs on to your mp3.
