Ok you need to know exactly what model number player you are using as there are three versions of the YP-T8. * YP-T8A * YP-T8X * YP-T8Z Once you know that then you go to the samsung site and download the appropriate driver. Looks something like this: FM/200611/20061107201844343_YP_T8_ROM_20060609_138US.zip Once you do that you have to unzip or extract the file. Windows should do this automatically. According to the directions you then take the files that it unzips and put them on your mp3 player. So connect your mp3 player to the computer via that usb cable. It should show up as a Removable Device under My Computer. Find the files you just extracted. Should be YP_T8.fnt, YP-T8.rom and YP-T8.img You then simply copy those files into the mp3 player which is that new removable device drive. The root folder is the first area you see when you first explore the drive. i.e. any folder you see on that mp3 player when you double click on it is actually a sub-folder and not the root folder. So open it up and copy those files right there. After which you then do as the directions say. Unplug the mp3 player, power it off and then connect your charger. It says it will automatically upgrade the firmware and then automatically turn on so it should just be a waiting game at that point. Good luck!

I can not get my yp-t8 to download to my pc my pc is xp home and the driver that ihave is win 98


Hello,

If the driver you mention is only for Win98, it is of no use in XP.

For the YP-T8 there are 3 model players, that might need different driver, software and firmware (under OS there's a listing for the supported Operating Systems).
Select your model on next page:
http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/search/supportSearchModelResult.do?menu=SP00&searchWord=ypt8&default_searchInputBox_value=Enter+model+number+or+keywords&searchInputBox=yp-t8
Next select the matching driver, software for your computer.
Download and install the driver and software.

Also look under firmware, to see if there are updates for the player.

I want to reset my samsung yp-t9


Complete Solution - includes fix for Bluetooth.
You will need to execute a number of steps to do this:
1 - obtain a copy of the latest firmware from http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/search/supportSearchResultView.do?group=&group_cd=&type=&type_cd=&subtype=mp3others&subtype_cd=&model_nm=YP-T9&dType=D&vType=L&mType=&model_cd=&menu=download&prd_ia_cd=&disp_nm=YP-T9
or (even better) - go to the international site and download a copy of YP-T9 V1.80.zip
2 - Reset - Power off the yp-t9 using A-B and MENU pressed together - hold down A-B and press the POWER button to enter the low-level format mode - press LEFT LEFT RIGHT RIGHT UP CENTRE DOWN - the yp-t9 will now reformat - power off using A-B and MENU together
3 - reload firmware - Power on normally and connect to PC as a USB drive. Move the two files you just downloaded (MUON.ROM and SYSDATA.BIN) into the root of the USB drive - Safely remove the drive - Power on the yp-t9 and allow it to re-install the firmware

If you want to restore Bluetooth functionality you will also need to perform the following steps:

4 - pop the four rubber plugs out of the back of the unit - with a small phillips screwdriver remove the four screws - insert your fingernail into the seam of the unit on both sides and pop off the back - gently (slowly) remove the battery taking care not to place any strain on the connecting wires - copy dowm the 12-digit number on the label under the battery (starts 0016xxx...) - replace battery, back, screws and plugs.
5 - using text editor create a file with the 12 digits (use upper-case letters where appropriate) followed by <enter> key - save it as BT_MAC_ADDR.TXT
6 - connect the yp-t9 and open it using Right click on Start and Explore - find the yp-t9 and drag a copy of BT_MAC_ADDR.TXT into the SYSTEM folder - Safely remove - power on normally.

Hope this helps
Chris

How do you put videos on it


You either drag & drog the files to the removable disk or go to Samsung Multimedia Studio and select 'export' and select 'export videos to device' on the drop-down menu. If the files aren't in the correct format then it will do that and transfer the files.

Samsung yp t9


Firstly, "re-set" the T9 (ie hold 'MENU' & "REC', for 3 secs to re-initialise the built-in firmware - refer to your manual, or download manual off Samsung website). This procedure will overide everything. If this gets it goin, then download the latest firmware update from Samsung website (download centre/mp3) and save newest firmware onto your T8 - your manual should explain how to do this. Always update your T9 with latest firmware when available (appropriate with your Windows OS), to eliminate any bugs in the firmware. Failing this, then a replacement battery is the next step. If still under warranty (ie less than 12mnths old), then have an approved Samsung service agent look at it Free of charge. Good luck.
