Question about Samsung YP-K3 MP3 Player

2 Answers

My 2gb yp-k3 mp3 player freezes when there is too many playlists

I bought it quite a long time ago but have only recently started using the playlists, when i put the music on it all gets jumbled up all the 1s and all the 2 and so on. but by using the playlists they are all arranged how they should. The problem is that if i use more than about 2 playlists when i turn it on it just freezes on the start up screen (samsung) when there is no playlists it is fine. I sent it back under the manufacturer's guarantee and told them it freezes. I got it back today and it is exactly the same it still freezes and all it seems that they have done is deleted all the music and playlists on it put a couple of test tracks on it and said yep its working and sent it back with no description of what was wrong with it or what they did. what should i do is there a fault? should i take it back again? is the anyway i can get the tracks to stay togeter without playlists. when i rename the tracks on the computer they dont change on the mp3 display so i dont see a way arround it.

Well, I dont know about the freezing problem...but i have a solution for changing the name of Mp3 Files....copy the whole Music folder from your samsung K3 and paste it anywhere you want and then click on your music folder, then click at each song separately and then go to its properties...from there you can change the name, artists,album and many more...and then cut the songs you have changed it and paste it on your music folder....but must remember to delete your songs in ur samsung K3 not the folder.

The answer is not to use more than 2 playlists. If you haven't upgraded the firmware you can try that.

I need a charger for my samsung yp-k3 2gb mp3

The MP3 player is charged by connecting the supplied USB cable to the MP3 player and then plugging the other end of the USB cable into the USB port of a working computer.
This cable is also used to copy music files, video and photos to the MP3 player from the computer.

If I have my YP-K3 plugged in, samsung media studio crashes immediately, and Emodio also does. I want to edit the playlists, the PLA files, is there any other way to do this?

Yes the same thing happens with me. I removed samsung media studio then I create a new folder in My documents, call it by the artist name eg The Beatles. place your mp3's in this file. Now plug in your YP-K3 and double click on it's icon in My computer go to data then music or playlists (whatever you want to do) cut the file you created in My documents and paste it in music or playlists.

yer that's what I do but aparently you can use iTunes

Hope this helps

Playlist and video and text

i would take it to the place of purchase and talk to one of the tech nerds about it, and if they half nothing then try to get on the k3's website for support and assistance, what does it say when you try to use the playlist or text?

Playlists disappeared from Samsung Media Studio, but still on K3!

Well you don't have to use that program. First connect you're mp3 to you're computer. If you're using a PC and not mac there's always Windows Media Player or if you click on the start button on the desktop in the bottom left corner and menu will appear. Click on my computer, there will be a list of items are one of them should be the name of your Mp3 player. Click it and you can access the files on your Mp3 player. If you wish to rather use Window Media Player open it first. On the left hand side there should be a list of the tracks on your library, playlists and you're Mp3. You can access you're files from there aswell. The other thing about windows media maker is you can also synchonize songs on to your mp3.
