Samsung YP-Z5 issue

I have had no problems with my MP3 player before but when I charged it last night and everything was fine and usual did I notice as I unplugged it that all my files are gone. It won't let me download anymore songs and when I open my Samsung file when it is charging it comes up blank. Even when I go to Windows Media Player to sync music it disconnects my device any time I try to do anything with my device. It won't let me sync anymore music because my storage is apprarently full but I can't even get to my files to delete them. And when I turn on my MP3 player the music section is blank, only my photos will view. Any one know how I can fix this?

    After charging the battery all sound files are gone (photos are still there)
    connecting to the computer isn't working. @system info/capacity I see the files must still be there because the free memory is small.

    Reset (more than 3 times didn't work), Does anyone has another solution?

My Samsung YP-Z5 player wont respond to charging. Tried plugging into several USB ports on different computers but wont charge. Its constantly displaying .... Low Battery & USB Disabled. I was...

Yes, they only last two to three years.

A search of eBay, a place i look to check availability gives a number available.
Search "Samsung YP-Z5 battery"

If you are able to open up the case You could cut off the existing battery leads close to the battery and join the two wires. Soldering is preferred if you have an insulated tip soldering iron.
Otherwise twisting the wires together is probably good enough.
Tape the joins to strengthen and insulate them.

Samsung YP-z5 won't connect to the PC!

This might help getting it connected to the computer.

UMS mode allows the Z5 to interface to the computer as if it were a removable hard drive. You can then use Windows File Explorer to manage the files in the Z5.

To get into UMS mode, connect the Z5 to the USB port while simultaneously holding down the "return" button (the top of the square keypad) while connecting. This will put the player into UMS mode for that connection period only.

If you upgrade to the new firmware, you have the option of making it always connect in UMS mode.

The steps to install the latest firmware are:
(1) Download version 2.37 or newest of the Z5 firmware

(2) Unzip it to get the file named "Z5Update.dat".

(3) Disconnect the Z5 from the USB port.

(4) Reconnect the Z5 to the USB port while simultaneously holding down the "return" button (the top of the square keypad) while connecting. This will put the player into UMS mode for that connection period only.

(5) Open a File Explorer window, and find the YP-Z5 device.

(6) At this point, make sure the Z5 is fully charged and has at least 30MBytes of free space.

(7) Copy the file "Z5Update.dat" to the root directory of the YP-Z5 device.

(8) Now disconnect the Z5 from the USB port.

(9) The Z5 will display the option to upgrade to the new software, or to cancel.

(10) Select "Upgrade". This will power off the Z5.

(11) Connect the USB cable to the Z5. Now it will upgrade the firmware under USB power. DO NOT DISCONNECT THE USB UNTIL THE UPGRADE FINISHES. After finishing the upgrade, new firmware will be started automatically.

(12) Check the version information in the "Settings > System Info > Version" tab.

Now you can turn on the UMS only option.
Settings / System Info / UMS Only = On

YP-Z5 Not Charging

How many hours did you charged the unit before this issue occur? because if you h8ave charged the unit for longer that 4hrs, then the problem is you have over charged the unit, if so your unit needs service.
