Question about Samsung YP-K5 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Samsung YP-K5JZBY I bought this a few months ago and still to this day have not been able to get it to connect to my computer. It goes through all the automatic install features with my XP Pro SP2, but it always ends with the error message of: A service installation section of this INF is invalid. What does this mean? Can anyone help me?

Your device is not compatible with your existing OS. XP is wonderful operating system but, unfortunately, there are newer devices that will not work in that environment. Bet you a cup of coffee that if you attempt to install it in a later computer with, say, windows 7 it will work!

You will need to contact Samsung direct. Unfortunately it costs $35 to have it assessed. If it was bought less than 12 months ago you can provide proof of purchase or a Stat Dec and confirm the place of purchase and the service centre will process it for you. If you have the serial number, you can use that to track the purchase date. The locations for repairs can be found on

You will need to return it for a replacement. Don't tell them the above as it would have invalidated the warranty.
