The first time I connected my Samsung K3 to my PC I transferred some tunes just by dragging & dropping from Windows Media Player. Fantastic, I thought, I didn't have to install the CD & could still use WMP as promised, without having to install & use the Samsung Media Player. I used the MP3, then re-connected it when the battery was running low & was going to transfer some more tunes. But now my PC won't recognise that a portable device is connected. I've tried installing the Samsung CD & now have Samsung Media Player on my PC, but I can't opeb the portable devices icon within it. When it's connected to the USB the screen on the MP3 says 'charging' but it's not & my battery has since run out. I tried following the 'hot fix' instructions on a previous thread but have Windows XP Home not professional so couldn't continue. Help anyone?n Pleeaaaaase?

If you have a Macintosh, do the following:
Download Android File Transfer on your computer. When you plug in your phone, via USB, the app will detect it and reveal the files on it. Navigate to Photos, or something similar, and then drag n' drop all the files into the location you want in Finder.
This is a approved process by google, the company that made Android, the OS your phone runs, so no viruses.
Here is the link to android file transfer:
If you have a Windows PC, the process is much simpler:
Plug in the phone to the PC, and when a window pops up, select media device. Then navigate to photos, and drag n' drop the photos you want to the location on your computer.

Hook up your GoGear with the PC via the supplied USB cable.
Make sure you connect your GoGear micro also to the main power supply.
Launch the version of Windows Media Player 10.0 installed in your computer. Note: Once the device is connected to the computer, all playback or radio will stop.
Check and make sure that the Create folder hierachy on device option is enabled in Windows Media Player. Go to Tools>Options. Select the Devices tab and then highlight GoGear Audio and click Properties
Click OK to close the windows.
In the Items to Copy pane, in the drop-down list, click the playlist, category, or other item that you want to copy.

In the Items on Device pane, in the drop-down list, click to select PhilipsGoGear to copy files to.
Click the Start Sync button.
The Player verifies that there is sufficient storage space on the device to copy the selected files. If there is sufficient space, the files are converted (if necessary) and copied to the portable device.
Repeat steps 2-5 for any other items that you want to copy to your portable device.
Once the transfer is completed, close the Windows Media Player
Unplug the GoGear from the PC and enjoy the music on your GoGear.

You dont need any special software to add files to your player. I will give you two ways to add files to your player:
**Drag and Drop**
Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder; available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.
--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.
This is a cable for your MP3 player. it costs £12.99, about 26 Dollars. You dont need the installation CD.
Just connect the player to a computer, windows and windows media player recognises the device and allows you to drag and drop tracks on to it.
What may be wrong, is that OS has stopped recognising your MP3 Player as a USB drive, which stops programs acknowledging your MP3 players existence.
A solution for windows (98 upwards I believe), is to go to your Device Manager (Look in the Control Panel, and look for Device Manager or Hardware, depending on your windows version).
Make sure your MP3 player is plugged in. This is important, it must be plugged in. Now look under the category 'Portable Devices', and you should see the name of your mp3 player there. Right click it, and select 'Uninstall' from the drop down menu. Confirm that you want too remove the driver.
After removing them, windows should then recognise your mp3 player is plugged in, but has no drivers, so it'll go and look for some drivers.
At this point, if your CD came with any drivers for your MP3 player, follow the instruction too install them.
If this solution works, and the problem happens again, just repeat these instructions, and it may fix it again.
