SOURCE: unable to find usb device in media studio

Does your device show up as a separate device in windows explorer? If so you may drag and drop files directly onto it.

Alternatively you can download alternative free media players like winamp and rhapsody which do the same job as media player.

If your device does not show up in windows explorer then you may have a usb problem on your Samsung media player. This is most likely to be a hardware fault which I don't know a free/cheap solution to.

SOURCE: S3 won't allow file transfer.

I got the same thing - my computer would charge the device, but not recognize it to allow file transfer. it was the same for all USB ports. I tried using the USB cable from my old Samsung YP-T9, and it actually worked immediately. So it is not the device itself, but the USB cable, for some reason. I don't know how to solve the problem with the YP-S3 cable, though.

You may have to download the converter directly from Samsung's website, especially if you are running a Windows Vista OS.

SOURCE: samsung yp s3 doesnt work on xp

The SOLUTION, that is 99% effective, is to RE- INSTALL the Windows media player version 11. I have the same with this samsung and a SONY Nwz- e438f. But the latter has a cd to reinstall the WMP 11- As soon as I reinstalled it the pc recognized the two players

My samsung yp-s3 doesn't work, i can't trasnfer music from my pc to my mp3


I had the same problem and an older PC using XP Professional. With a bit of research I found the corrective action.

1. The Samsung must be properly identified by windows as a storage device.
This is accomplished by obtaining the Update for WMDRM-enabled Media Players (KB891122) from Microsoft. The driver is a part of media player but it is listed seperately.
at http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/...

2. Once you have updated the driver the My Computer Should Identify a MTP Drive using the S3 as an identifier. You could drag and drop the data using the drive section or continue with the third step listed.

3. Reload the Samsung Media Studio and the S3 portable device will be enabled.

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 yp-s3 won't install hardware


Unlike my other MP3 player, the S3 by default is not recognized as a stanrdard USB device. The S3 is an MTP device. MTP is Microsoft's protocol for communicating with the S3.
Window's Media Player 10 or higher will recognize the S3.
Vista will automatically recognize the S3 as well.

There is a firmware upgrade you can try to make the S3 be seen as standard USB device (UMS Mode).
