Question about Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player
When ive connected by samsung player to the computer and ive gone onto the samsung media studio which ive installed. The portable device icon is not active and does come on.
I had this problem with my YP-U3JZB, and this worked:
Plug player into USB port. Then do: Control panel > System > Hardware tab > Device manager > Portable devices (expand and locate name of device, eg "Samsung YP-U3") – right-click and select “Update driver”, follow prompts.
This worked without installing the Samsung media player – Windows Media Player 10 or 11 will then recognise the device, for syncing, etc.
(found this solution in another forum, can’t now locate – anyway, props to them!)

Go in Control Pannel ->Add Hardware -> Next
Then choose Yes, I have already connected the hardware -> Next
Select MTP device form the list (it is somewhere at the buttom) -> Next
And finish the instralation
Then go to Control Pannel -> Portable Media devices and you will see your mp3 player there.
It is now connected to your computer and you can put your music on.
I hope this is the solution to your problem

This is a common problem that is usually generated by flashing the wrong firmware
to the player. All you need to do is to get your player into ADFU state, that is to make it connect to the pc no matter what the firmware tells it to do. To do that you must
disassemble your player and short the memory chip pins or the tantalum capacitor on the board.
First you must connect the player to the PC and wait 30 seconds. Then
you must short the capacitor's wires with a screwdriver or a bent
paperclip, but only for less than a second. Do not let it short for too much
or you will burn the chips!
Alternatively, you can short the flash chip's pins with a paper clip. Short both sides
and slide down with the paper clip but do NOT insist. Your player should turn off for a
second and then turn on again. I repeat, do not insist or you will burn your player's flash.
Just slide fast, but be care full not to break the pins.
As soon as you do this and the player restarts, after maximum 1 minute it will be detected by your computer and the PC will ask for drivers. Now you have to browse to MP3 Player utilities folder, tipically under “C:\Program Files\MP3 Player Utilities
4.15\RDiskUpdate\driver\” and install “ADFUUD.SYS”. The PC will then install it and you'll be able to run the firmware update program and update the fiwmare.
