Hi there. Have you tried the reset procedure, by pressing the tiny button under the player with a paper clip, or a pen's tip ? That might do it ! Please reply if it doesn't work, and give a bit more details on the exact player's behavior :) Thanks, cheebster.

A firmware upgrade may solve the issue. To upgrade firmware follow these steps:

  1. Download the firmware file from the Samsung Download Center by clicking here.
  2. Remember to save the file to your desktop or documents.
  3. Uncompress the downloaded file in a folder (use winrar or winzip). DATA file will be displayed.
  4. Connect the player to your PC with the USB cable.
  5. Right click on the Start button, and then left click Explore to open Windows Explorer on your PC. [Samsung YP-Z5] is displayed in Windows Explorer.
  6. Select the uncompressed files and drag-and-drop it into the Samsung YP-Z5 Data folder.
  7. Disconnect the YP-Z5 from your PC. After disconnecting the USB Cable, the upgrade screen appears.

Samsung YP-Z5F MP3 player malfunction

I have that kind of Mp3 Player too... that happened to me, but the PC was able to read mine. However, the reason why the message: "Low Battery USB Disabled" appears, is that you still have remaining battery life, but will only last for less than an hour (indicated by low light and red empty battery sign) you have to make sure the Mp3 is completely discharged. (you'll be notified when you turn on the device while it says: "Low Battery") once that it is completely discharged, you can now plug in the USB cable with the device to the PC... if problem persists, check your PC.. can it read the device? Check if a notification balloon appears at the bottom right corner of the monitor screen. It should say, "Found New Hardware... Samsung YP-Z5F..." if it did not appear, try to INSTALL using the Installation CD given when you bought the product. Just insert the disk into the PC and continue on, then when it is already installed and ready for use, plug in the device! This may be a little hard, but this is the only way I know. Feel free to ask me! I am no technician but I know a lot on devices and fine mechanics. Good luck!
