I couldn't get the icon for the portable device either. I solved the problem by going to the Control Panel; used Add Hardware; and followed the prompts. I used the original Samsung K3 CD. And it worked! Good luck

3:connect your hardware device and click "yes i have connected the hardware"
4:scroll down and select install new hardware device
5:select install hardware that i manually select from a list

I cannot install my samsung YP-K3J MP3 Player onto my PC - HELP!!

Try to update the driver of the player.

Go to the START menu.
Click on RUN. type in devmgmt.msc and hit enter.
Make sure you have the player plugged in and the installer CD should be on your CD drive.
Now look for the category PORTABLE DEVICES or OTHER DEVICES.
the YP-K3 should be listed there with a yellow question mark.
Right click on it and select update driver. Follow the prompts to update.
The player should be recognized after that.

Hope this helps!

Samsung YP-K3 mp3 player requires driver but I have no cd!!

I've had this problem. Windows media player doesn't seem to find it, and I couldn't figure out which file I needed from the site. I have xp, but I'm assuming this might also work for vista. Go to Control Panel. Open System. Click the Hardware tab. Click the Device manager button. Find the yellow question mark labled Samsung YP-K3 and doubble click it. This should open a window that will let you (re)install the driver, which it will find for you after having you set up a few simple options. Hope this helps.

My YP-K3 won't turn on

Do you have mediaplayer 10 or 11 installed?

Media player 11 is seriously screwed up software and will cause your computer not to recognise the player
You will need to remove ALL traces of media player 11 from you computer.
