    I have the same problem, my YP K3 also came from QVC. They tell me it's still under warranty & to call Samsung. Samsung says its a problem with Rhapsody, Rhapsody says it is not compatible with this device.

For RTC error, open Windows Media Player and connect it. Windows media should offer to synch the clock. RTC stands for RealTime Clock

For License Error, this is to be expected around the same time every month. You see, when you transfer DRM protected music, a license is transferred as well. When you use a montly "all you can eat" plan, the licenses expiring every month keeps you from syncing all sorts of songs onto your device, then canceling your service, making away with free music.

Open your music service, connect the device, and synch a song to it. That should update all licenses.

Strange it seems that the version of rhapsody player you have is a generic one which needs to be licenced. Go to the Samsung website and download the updated software for the mp3 player. You will get hold of the Samsung media player which does the same thing and does not need to be licenced. You don't even need a separate software player. Media player 10 will automatically recognise the player and do the same things anyway.

Samsung player reset my files?

Like most Samsung electronics, the software is the pits, yet the hardware is generally quite good.
If the Samsung YP-K3 MP3 player continues to act erratically, a reboot, or reset, may help. Resetting this device allows you to reinitialize your player without losing your files or device settings.
The Reset hole is on the back of the device, toward the bottom. Press one end of a straightened paper clip into the Reset hole gently. Then allow the Samsung YP-K3 MP3 player to initialize.
You may want to upgrade and if you have, this may be why the files were reset.

Yp-k3 unrecognizable

Go to Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Add a hardware at the left menu. Follow the instructions and it should fix itself. You might also need the mp3 plugged into the USB while doing this.
