Question about Samsung YP-K3 MP3 Player

1 Answer

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

I successfully created a number of playlists using Samsung Media Studio SMS). They transferred successfully to the K3 and are working just fine. But when I opened SMS the next time, the playlists I created and transferred were gone, although they're still on the K3. How can I get them back on SMS (other than recreating them) so I can update them (add/remove tracks)? Thanks

Re: Playlists disappeared from Samsung Media Studio, but...

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.

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

Adding songs to existing playlists

The playlist created on this device is what I find to be really crappy. I've tried it and songs just seem to appear randomly. For this sake, don't use the playlist. Highlight every song that you want in a group in a (like in a playlist), then right-click then click properties. Go to the details tab and change the 'Album' field all at once to what you would like to call your grouped 'album'. Then when you safely remove the device, you can get all your songs in the same album!!!!

Cannot load playlists

Try sync your player with winamp. It synced the whole winamp media library (including playlists). Hope this can help.

You have to copy files to "my albums" area. You can choose among default albums or you can make your own. After that just copy those albums to your player area ( you can choose not to overwrite files but in that case you will have duplicate songs in your player i.e. you will lose your memory for nothing). There is one bad thing about those playlists - when you copy them to player, you actually move them - they will be no longer present in samsung media studio. Maybe it's because of that "overwriting" thing, i don't know...Hope this can help, it worked for me.

Albums disappeared

you could try using windows media player to create playlists and store music files, it's so much easier to use too.

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

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