The playe conects to my PC and has battery but will not turn on.

You need proper drivers installed in your PC to enable it to recognize the device. If have the driver CD that came with it, then install it else download it from this site

How to i Uplaod Video?

install the samsung installation cd in your computer. this will automatically convert any supported format into svi format (samsung video interleave). Just plug your ypt10 and the samsung media player will detect it automatically. Open any video format into your samsung media player. rightclick the video file and it will transfer the video file automatically.

Samsung YP-U5 ipod installation problem

dont load crappy software that comes with these things,
windows generic usb storage device drivers works solidly.
just treat it like a flash drive, drag and drop your mp3s into the music folder.
and make sure its charged, i.e. leave it plugged into the computer for al least 30 mins

Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player Problem connection

Found the solution on another site ( To quote user AFHavemann :

"* Plug in the player so the USB bus can see it.

* Once it’s recognized (i.e., the device screen reads "Charging" and "USB Disconnected"), go to the Control Panel and click "System"

* Choose "Hardware" then "Device Manager" tab.

* Look for the name of your device under “Portable Devices” in the list

* If the name of your player is under “MTP Device” then the correct drivers are probably loaded

* Right-click on the name of your device and click "Properties"

* Click “Update Driver”"

Then follow the prompts from there. The computer searches for the driver software, etc., and reinstalls/resets information related to the device, which fixed things such that the computer will now recognize the device. I'm not sure what causes the problem, but this solution seems to reset whatever's gone wrong.
