YP-U6 USB not recognized

I have a YP-U6, and it was working fine for a few months since I bought it. But just today, I plugged it in the USB slot just like any other time, only to find that it wasn't recognized as a USB drive. No popups, no F:drive, no anything. Any idea how this happened? My friend recently had the same issue as well, please help me out here.

SOURCE: Samsung yepp/ YP-T6 reformated now can't put tunes back on.

Use the Samsung Firmware Updater to fix it. Mine did what all of you are speaking about. I was ready to toss it then I tried the firmware updater on the CD and it fixed it. You must copy all the files from the \setup\Programs\ and \setup\Binary\ folders on the Samsung CD to a folder on your hard drive. Then connect the player via USB and run stupdaterapp.exe. It will search for the device and pop up a menu. Check the Format Data Are box and click start. It takes a few minutes and wipes the device clean but it fixed mine.

I have a Samsung YP-U6 MP3 player which worked very well for the past 4 years. Suddenly the connection between the PC and the MP3 player didn't work any more. When I plug in the MP3 player in the USB port,...

Sandro, from what you describe, thanks for the complete story, I'm afraid the USB connector in the MP3 player is defect. Or the connection inside the player. If you tried another MP3 cable and that did not work, it must be in the player.
Be aware an USB cable has different wires for charging and for the digital connection. So a cable could be used foe charging, and still be defect for digital throughput.
Perhaps you could try to clean out the USB connector on the player, but be careful not to bend or break any pin in the connector. Is a tooth pick and if you have an air blower, blow in the connector, if you see anything like a bit of dust or a scrap of paper.
Then the opening of the player.
As a repair engineer, I would not open it, unless I had a repair manual. I never had a player like this on my bench, but I'm convinced it can be opened. But because these little devices are often glued, it could be possible you can open it, but you won't be able to put it together.

Sometimes I use the site but they did not (yet) open a MP3 player, so that can't help you. I tried to find a repair manual, but that failed too.
I hope you can fix it by cleaning the connector, because if not I think you have to start saving money for a new player.

Download the latest driver software from the Samsung website with the link below and install it on your PC. Click on downloads > Software.
If that doesn't fix the problem, try connecting it to other USB ports as the one you tried could be faulty or some USB ports do not provide enough power for the device to get connected.

Samsung YP-S3 not recognized by computer

I think you have answered the question yourself. Change the USB cable.
If that doesn't make any difference try searching for the hardware again. Check the settings and drivers are working. Roll back the driver etc.

USB DEvice not recognized

I had a problem like this -- tried plugging the camera in to the rear USB slots not the front ones and it worked fine.

I think that it doesn't like going via a USB hub, but wants a direct connection. All of the USB ports on my computer are connected direct to the motherboard (i.e. none are on PCI cards or anything), but looking at the hardware info for the computer, it looks like the motherboard has a few "direct" USB connections, and then an on-board hub which the front ports connect to. If your computers are the same, that would explain things. I'd suggest trying each USB port one at a time (turn the camera off before plugging in, and back on when in) and see if one of them works. Wouldn't hurt to power the camera from the mains at the time too.

Samsung YP U2 does not even start it budffer to 20% and then just stops and stays at 20%?!?!?!?!

You might have formatted it to NTFS. Try reformatting it to FAT.

And if the device is getting recognized on ur PC, ur USB port might be damaged. If not, u might need to go to the CC again.
