Emodio Wont Recognize My Samsung P2

Hi,
I bought my P2 two days ago, and so far Emodio barely ever recognizes it. I have plugged my P2 into my computer at least six, however it was only recognized twice (and those were just coincidental). I have absolutely NO idea what is going on. I have the latest firmware for my P2, and the latest updates for Emodio!
Can anyone please help??

    Thanks Dude, but i dun think that was the problem. However, I solved it by getting Samsung Media Studio, instead of Emodio. I did not update SMS, and now its workin fine. And to be honest, I like SMS better than Emodio in every way, except for its appearance!

Ok well im 14 and I have a p2 myself. Have you plugged in the cord all the way? Thats what happens to me sometimes. I forget to plug it in all the way and then it wont work. Just try that and let me know. It should work though. But was your p2 recognizing it was connected to your computer?

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

My samsung yp-s3 mp3 player wont let me put videos on it


After 2 days of figuring out, I came with the solution today. Most probably your computer is running under windows vista. well emodio doesnt support such to do the transfer. What I did is downloaded a program (free) called "any video converter". All videos have to be converted in WMV extension file, so emodio can recognize and does the conversion to SVI ( the yp-s3 extension). So after you convert the original files into WMV files, take the converted files and add them into emodio. Emodio will convert it into SVI, but the transfer to the MP3 will failed. This is the magic:

close emodio. Leave your MP3 conected. Go to where emodio saves the converted files. When u go to that folder, you will see your files, but you can tell your computer wont be able to play it, as the files icon is just with a white background. Just drag it into the YP-S3 video folder and voila! Disconnect your MP3 from the computer, turn it on and enjoy your videos!!!!!!!!!!

Lost media studio installation cd, now wat? + wenevr i put a video on my p2, it says ''not supported format''


Use Emodio, and emodio.com. Its better than the samsung program anyway. You can get them both at the samsung site, just look up by your model number and go under the pic and click the software tab

Supported video formats on samsung yp-p2


ATM im having alot of problems with videos on my P2, originally when i first bought it, i am pretty sure it played almost every format, MP4 to flv, but not for sum unknown reason it doesnt, and even the software emodio, (which is ****) wont even recognise these videos and when it does it doesnt even transfer into the emodio library. Really ticking me off. P2=great but there is a few teething problems that you dont get with ipods.

Emodio no longer displays the portable device (samsung 4g YP-P2)


k this is how im getting "through" it, unistall emodio then downlaod it again...
when it (emodio) asks you if u want to run the update, cancel it, im guessing it was something in the previous update that screwed us all over but if you skip the update your MP3 should register fine.
Ps: dont worry if you re-install emodio ontop of the one you already have it should keep all your songs registered also, but dont quote me on it.
hope i helped !!!

Not really a problem...just need some advice


I just picked up this player after reviewing it for a couple of months from best buy for $149 (8 gb version). it comes with the most up-to-date firmware already on it (i have firmware 5.10 on it now) so it eliminated the hassle of getting an older one and having to update the firmware on it.

as for the player itself, its wonderful. I upgraded from the samsung T9 to this one and i have noticed a drastic improvement in the sound and image quality. The features the YP P2 have on are outstanding for such a "low-budget" device (subway map, FM radio, voice recorder, bluetooth, alarm clock, make calls on your phone via the mp3 player, etc.)

As for sync-ing files from your computer to the player, you have to use the Emodio software to synch any necessary files. Since having my older samsung i am familiar with the emodio/ samsung media software, however it is very easy to use and to sync. All you have to do is locate the files on your pc, bring it to the library for Emodio, and then literally click-and-drag over to the mp3's window and it syncs automatically. I have not had any problems synching videos, pics or songs (so far, lol).

If you want a high quality player that has a big enough screen to watch videos and still fit comfortable in your pocket, as well as packed with a bunch of programs and a premier quality video/ audio player, then do yourself a favor and get the samsung YP-P2.

P2 player


The video formats have to be in .svi thats the only format the player can pick up, emodio or the media player should do this. If not you could try to download a file converter and convert them into the right format maybe.
