Hi go to---
I had the same problem. First disconnect the mp3 player from your computer. Then go into the control panel, select the system icon, go to the device manager tab, and then find the Samsung K5 driver. Right click on it and select uninstall. Now reconnect your mp3 player. That should do the trick. Somehow the driver file got corrupted and wasn't letting the k5 charge.
You can download the drivers you need from Samsung. There are a few different versions of the YP-K5, so I'm not sure which one you need without the device in front of me, but it should have a full model number on it (YP-K5AB, YP-K5QB, etc).
Go to this site:
and enter the model number. It will take you directly to a list of downloads. You need the drivers, but you can download the manual as well, should you need it.
What you probably need is a firmware update. Many people seem to have this problem and it is fixed when you update the firmware from 1.03 (the one that comes with it) to 1.05
Here's the link to the firmware update: http://www.samsung.com/tw/support/productsupport/download/FileView.aspx?cttfileid=1536296&type=&typecode=200600&subtype=&subtypecode=200601&cmssubtypecode=&model=YP-K5QB&filetype=FM&language=
