    The install software is garbage and the driver does not install in XP. In Vista, you can at least see the device but the Media **** crashes with runtime errors. Still looking for the right fix. Downloading fresh software did nothing to fix it....73 MB of ****! They are mailing me a disc, but i'll bet that won't help :(

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.

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

GoTo microsoft downloads and install windows media player 11 and dotnet.framework 2.0. This should solve it.

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

How do i put musci on my yp-s3 player


http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/search/supportSearchResultView.do?group=&group_cd=&type=&type_cd=&subtype=&subtype_cd=&model_nm=YP-S3&dType=D&mType=&model_cd=&menu=download&prd_ia_cd=&disp_nm=YP-S3

Above the sub type support page for yp-s3.
Scroll down for the exact type and select one by clicking it:
next page shows manual> software> firmware>.

Most manuals refer to Emodio but the Multi Media Studio should be
sufficient for transferring music as well.

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.
