Re: Samsung YP5 Mp3 Player - When i first bought from my...

I bought my YPK5 player about a year ago, works well with my laptop then, which was running on windows xp, however when I bought a computer with windows vista running on it recently, the vista system doesn't seem to recognize the YPK5 when I attach to it - worse still the vista system automatically install a driver from windows system and designate my YPK5 as a USB drive!!! (a USB drive for a couple hundred of bucks! Imagine that!) - worse, I accidently (or stupidly) reformatted the YPK5 - as suggested by vista (thinking that it might recognize YPK5 as an MP3 player if I did that) - the next thing I knew, YPK5 died on me - literally - and just one day before the warranty expires. (thank heavens!)

Well, to all you new samsung MP3 owners out there, vista do has some problems with YPK5, not sure if it still is after the service pack update - just don't make it worse by formatting it... :D

Anyway, the solution seems to be downloading the updated firmware and software (the updated samsung media center) from their website Hope this helps. :)

My sansa mp3 player doesn`t seem to charge anymore. what do i do?

My best bet is the cable gone wrong. If you can find a similar cable to purchase from a computer shop or a friend you can try it.
