Question about Samsung Yepp YP-T9 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

No Portal device opens

On the Samsung Media 2 out of 4 windows (My PC and Burn CD) open always. The CD window opens when I insert a CD to CD driver. But the Portal device window does not open. Steps I've taken to solve this problem: Connected the player to my Computer via USB. Run Samsung Media. Chose songs to transfer to the Player. But the Portable device not active. Before it opened once, but not at a time when I want to renew the songs in my player.

Re: No Portal device opens

What may be wrong, is that OS has stopped recognising your MP3 Player as a USB drive, which stops programs acknowledging your MP3 players existence. A solution for windows (98 upwards I believe), is to go to your Device Manager (Look in the Control Panel, and look for Device Manager or Hardware, depending on your windows version). Make sure your MP3 player is plugged in. This is important, it must be plugged in. Now look under the category 'Portable Devices', and you should see the name of your mp3 player there. Right click it, and select 'Uninstall' from the drop down menu. Confirm that you want too remove the driver. After removing them, windows should then recognise your mp3 player is plugged in, but has no drivers, so it'll go and look for some drivers. At this point, if your CD came with any drivers for your MP3 player, follow the instruction too install them. If this solution works, and the problem happens again, just repeat these instructions, and it may fix it again.

Iv put some music of a cd on to my mp3 but it skips it why??

ok im sorry if this next part is ignorant of me but im just trying to eliminate all the posobilitys here, If you just copyed the music straight from the cd to the mp3 player it wont work, you have to convert the cd to mp3 format and then copy it to the mp3 player, second if you did do that make sure you put it in the devices music folder and not just to the root directory of the device you can use windows media player to do all this for you with no problems just open up windows media player and insert your cd, click on the rip tab and copy the music, after its done there will be a library tab open that and then connect your device, once its recognized by windows media player then from your library select the songs you just copyed and drag them to the sync bar on the right hand side of the screen once thats done then click on the sync button and there you go windows will handle the rest
