Re: Samsung YP-T9 problem with license renewal of Napster...

I have the same problem, but i think i found a way to fix it.
The software it came with, Samsung Media Studio 5, has the music files marked as locked from Napster (which is irelevent to the solution), so, try going to the Menu tab in the top right hand corner, move the mouse over 'Import' and click on the 'Auto Scan' button. It will scan your computer for any file types it supports (Napster files included). Then, when it's finished, find your audio file and attempt to download it from Samsung Media Studio 5. It might work. P.S. Make sure you don't already have the file on the Mp3 before you download. Also, if this doesn't work, I suggest upgrading to emodio if the pop up occurs when you run Samsung Media Studio 5..........hope I could be of assistance. X3

Re: Samsung YP-T9 problem with license renewal of Napster...

I dont't knw napper, but widows media player is not compatible with samsung gadgets, so when you transfer files you only can carrying it on. try transfere files via SAMSUNG MEDIA STUDIO 5 (software include with the device) that automatically recognize the gadget firmware and convert files when transfere.

Sync the device to Rhapsody, Napster or whatever music service you use to prevent the license from expiring. If you have already cancelled your music service, you will no longer be able to use that song unless you renew your subscription.

I can'y delete the folders on my Samsung YP-T9J

On my YP-T9 I choose format and it deletes everything. Of course, I don't use it for pictures, videos, etc. You can format it either with WMP, Samsung Media Studio, or Windows Explorer. Only takes a couple minutes -- in fact, it's a lot faster than deleting the songs via WMP Sync.

No license to play/sync license from PC - Zen Creative V Plus

Unfortunately with Napster and Rhpasody (and a few others) you will have to resync every 30 days. The license should renew itself if you connect your player and resync, but i would check with napster's tech support b/c you might have to enable auto-sync temporarily until all of the licenses are updated. Alternatively, you can right click all 306 songs, click on "license" or "digital rights" and click "acquire license" - but that could be a real, time-consuming pain.

If you convert those songs to Mp3 format with an Mp3 converter,, you will never have that problem again.

Problems uploading song

Try using Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to put music on instead of the samsung media studio.

Connect your MP3 player then go into Windows Media Player, if you haven't got the latest Media Player download here - CLICK HERE

Once you've installed it connect your mp3 player then open Windows Media Player up then click on the link called "Sync", now your on there it should show your device in the top right of the screen, now all you need to do is drag and drop music you want on your mp3 play where it says "Drag items here", once you've finished choosing songs to put on just click "Start Sync", that's it.

And for future reference you can format using Windows Media Player as well.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way.

YP-U2JXB & YP-U2JZW Won't sync...Help!

Error C00D1236 virtually always indicates one of two things:

1) The device is trying to sync hidden files--are there any?
2) There is licensed media that is being synced, and the license is either corrupt or has expired. If you have any licensed media, then try going back to where you purchased it (in an iTunes-like music management program? In WMP?) and refresh/renew the license.

The bad news is that until C00D1236 is resolved, you can't sync your device. frown.gif

You can bypass syncing, and directly transfer files, In my computer, the mp3 plaer will be shown as a drive.

Now if one of the two solutions above is not feasible for u, try this:

In case you have a problem to connect your Samsung YP-U2J Mp3 player, you should update Firmware to get it working. The new Firmware may be downloaded from

CLICK Here to Download : Firmware Update

This error is common with Windows Media Player

Here is the instruction:
  1. Download the YP-U2J Updater
  2. Remove Mp3 player if you already connected to the USB port
  3. Run the program (You should see something like: Please connect the device)
  4. Hold down the Play button and connect the Mp3 Player to USB port (Hold down the play button while you connect the device, you should see a message (normally after 8 seconds) like: Initializing on YP-U2J Updater program screen)
  5. After you hear the Windows chime "new device found" or the message "Initializing" on YP-U2J Updater, you can now remove your hand from play button.
  6. Check the Format Data Area checkbox (By clicking the yes button, you will lose all of your data in your Mp3 player)
  7. Click the "yes" button
  8. Finally, click on the Start button (takes less than a minute). DO NOT REMOVE YOUR DEVICE
  9. IMPORTANT: After updating the firmware, you MUST disconnect the Mp3 player and turn it on. You will see a 20% message for about 50 seconds and it will be restarted automatically.
Update: Please keep in mind that if you sync your Mp3 player with a computer that has a Windows Media Player 9 or 10, you should do these steps again

I cant put song in my samsung yp-t9jaby/xaa

You may need to download software for your mp3 player of the manufacturer website or try using Windows Media Player 11.

To try using Windows Media Player 11 follow these steps:

Go to Windows Media Player 11, when you've opened it click on the link at the top called "Sync" once your on that your mp3 player should be there now just simply drag and drop music files where it says "Drag Items Here" on the right panel, then click "Start Sync".

Now unplug your mp3 player then see if it's worked.

If you want to try the other way download drivers for your mp3 player and vista go to this link -

once your on the site fill in the information about your mp3 player then search and download drivers, but the first step using windows media player i said to do should work no problem.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.

Samsung yp-t9 mp3 problem

I had the same problem. I use Napster for downloading, and if you go a certain amount of time with out connecting your player to Napster, the license will run out. Basically, hook it up to the download software to "refresh" itself.
