    Well I purchased this piece of junk as a gift for my neese and when I hook it up to the pc, after downloading the driver it came with, the bootleg device work. The stand by screen appears on the device when I plug it in, but the os does not detect the drive.

    Hello to you all,

    There is a simple way to solve the problem.

    1 - Install the software provided by samsung to the YP-U3 mp3 player;

    2 - Connect the device to your USB port;

    3 - When installing the device, select c:\windows\system

    4 - Your computer will recognize it as a MTP device.

    That is it.

The problem here is that while Win98 has basic USB support it does not implement the full specification - in particular it has no generic mass storage driver support. realizing this, most manufacturers used to supply specific drivers for their own devices, however anything made/sold much after 2000 assumes you will have XP (which has implemented the full spec, as have OSX and Linux) and simply list XP as a requirement (even though it isn't).

Although Microsoft (who want you to buy their newer product) will never supply these drivers, free third party alternatives are available (such as here).

This will allow connection of any MP3 player, Digital camera, Flash USB drive, External USB harddrive, CD/DVD drive or most any other USB device with storage.

For this to work properly any proprietary USB storage drivers should be removed (first preferably, or you'll have to troubleshoot removing them when the associated devices have problems later, but the generic version will work as well) .

For some devices (such as the Sandisk Sansa E250) you may have to set the style of USB from the device (to MSC from MTP in the case of the E250).

When the USB device is plugged in the first time it will ask where to look for drivers, the driver install above will put the necessary CAB files in your windows' directory in a folder called "OPTIONS\CABS" ... One removable "drive" will be installed for each data source (in the case of the E250 there will be 2 - one for the built-in storage and one for the SD-card expansion slot).

Hi, Most MP3 players except for some do not need a driver for USB recognition as it will be treated as a Removable Device/Storage. What you perhaps need is a Windows 98SE USB driver. This is normally included in the driver/installer CD of your motherboard or downloadable from its website. Alternately you can try doing a Google for "Windows 98 USB drivers" or experiment using those from other manufacturers until you find one compatible and that works with Venturer. Most works with other brands. One such example is the "SanDisk Windows 98 Driver" available at Hope this be of help/use to you. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi all,

    For some reason somebody rated this response as inappropriate. If the response did not work for your particular concern, perhaps it is because you have a different:
    1. Operating System; or
    2. 98driver that you downloaded is not appropriate.

    Probably what would be best is that somebody to post his/her particular concern as another topic with sufficient details rather than outright "Inappropriate Rating".

    This thread I believe, was initially rated as "Solved", having it overturned to "Inappropriate" would not be helpful to future posters of identical concerns.

How do I put a cd onto my phillips go gear player?


On a Windows System, most GoGear players can be detected in either
Windows Media Player 10 or 11. Use the WMP version that matches your player.

Before putting music onto the player, audio should already be or must be converted into the correct format.
Most GoGear mp3 players support music in the format mp3 and wma: this is the extension of a compressed audio file: e.g. track1.mp3 or song2.wma, similar to a text file, that could bare the name textfile1.txt .
Consult the manual of your model player for the correct extension and bitrate: bitrate is the density of the bits used to make a compressed audio file.

In WMP 10 or 11 the function RIP can be used to convert an 'ordinary' audio CD into mp3 audio tracks.
Look in the player's manual or go to the site of Microsoft for more information about using Windows Media Player.

When needing more help from this side, just add a comment in this thread.

File Format not supported

You have to be sure that the files are all mp3 files, or wma (windows media audio). Check the rip settings in Windows Media Player. If you rip CD's in a format other than mp3 or wma you will not be able to sync the files to your player. I would suggest sticking with mp3 - as mp3 files are compatible with any player, including ipods.

Why does it say error when i put on song onto my gpx mp3 player?

* You downloaded protected music on your Windows 98/98SE, Windows 2000, Windows XP computer using Windows Media Player 9. Music was purchased online or the music was ripped form your own audio CD with Copyright Protection turned ON.
o You must use Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10 for online purchased songs.
o You must turn OFF Copy Protection on your Windows Media Player 9 before ripping your audio CDs into WMA files
* You downloaded protected music to your MP3 player using your Windows XP computer and Windows Media Player 10 with your player in USB mode. Music was downloaded from the internet, purchased or subscribed, or it was ripped from your own audio CD with Copyright protection turned ON.
o You have to use your MW3836 in MTP mode.

I lost my cd with the software for my RCA LYRA MP3 - RD2010

What kind of system you are using? if its windows XP you shouldnt need a cd XP will recongise it. If its windows 98 you can download the drivers and firm at the rca site (link down a few lines) When RCA first came out with the Lyra series the only way to get music onto the device was by using musicmatch jukebox that would convert your mp3 file to mpy before downloading it to the device. But now RCA has come out with a new firm ware update for these mp3 players that improved the players playback quality plus enabled it to use .WMA files. so first go to RCA support and find your player and download the firmware and drivers (if needed) upgrade and install to your player its very easy and instructions are at the same site. You can now convert your music to .wma or use the free Real player that will convert mp3 to wma at the kbps that you request before loading it on. If your music is all ready in wma format you can use windows media player to send the files to your player. One last thing the .wma files that you put on your Lyra player need to be at least 128kbps or higher enhanced playback quality of wma files (160 kbps to 256 kbps).

- This device also works with Windows 98 SE and Windows ME, apart from Windows 2000 and XP. Make sure all the critical updates are installed on your computer - To put songs from a regular audio CD to the MP3 Player, you would first need to convert the songs from the audio CD in MP3, WMA, Ogg or Audio ASF format. The songs in audio CDs are in CDA format. good luck
