Well I was facing a similar problem and none of the above mentioned solutions worked really for me until I noticed that the device uses MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) for data transfer and isn't just a mass storage USB device like most other MP3s.

The above blabbering aside here is the solution:

1. Download Windows Meda format 11 SDK and Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) Porting Kit from the Microsoft Website.

2. Install the above mention software plugins and Restart your computer.

3. Connect your MP3 to your USB port (note: better connect it first to a main hard wired USB port rather than Cardbus or Hub Port at least for the first time then u can connect it later to a hub) and thats it it should be recognised as an MTP device and then the name of your MP3 will show in the system tray as a portable device as well as the model number in your device manager.

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.

This divise canot connect to pc it is only in charging mode


at my experience the mp3 player if connect to computer will at charging mode and at windows explorer will detect as removable disk like pen drive

at this state you can copy/paste file from computer to mp3 player or from mp3 player to computer
if your computer did not detect mp3 player as removable disk it mean your need to install mp3 player driver to your computer first

I bought a new CD and tried putting the songs from the CD on to my MP3 player. I am able to transfer the files onto the device but when I turn on my Samsung YP-K3, the songs are not on there. Why do they...


If you have windows media player then all you need to do is insert your YP-K3 into the computer then windows media player will show you a bunch of options for your MP3 click what ever suites you. Then rip the C.D to the windows media player. Then click and drag the songs if you want all of them click the first one press shift down on your keyboard then stop when you have all the songs you want then click and drag to the right hand side where it has your YP-K3

Cant transfer music from samsung back to Windows Media player


wmp11 doesn't work properly with this device (see elsewhere in the forums).

Cant detect player


Do you have media player 11 installed? It wont work with media player 11.

Also make sure you have no traces of media player 11. When you roll back from 11 to 10 it still leaves a trace of media player 11. Check your add/remove programme setttings carefully to make sure there is no reference to media player 11. If there was and you have removed it, restart your computer.
