Visit the Australian part of the Samsung website (http://www.samsung.com) and go to the download centre. Select the option to download the firmware for the Samsung YP-U2. It will be version V2.211. The download will be a zipped folder. Unzip the folder on your PC and run the setup program. This will install the Samsung YP-U2 software on your PC. Connect the player directly to a USB port on your PC and start the YP-U2 program. Use a paper clip to press the reset button on the YP-U2 whilst at the same time pressing the PLAY button. Hold the reset and play button like this for ten seconds. Once your PC picks up the player it should automatically download the drivers. Release the reset button and follow the instructions on your PC screen to install the firmware. The process will delete all the files currently on your MP3 player but at least you will be able to get it working again. If you fail to get the download at the Samsung website, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the zipped folder (almost 5MB).

IMPORTANT: After updating the firmware, you MUSTdisconnect the Mp3 player and turn it on. You will see a 20% messagefor about 50 seconds and it will be restarted automatically.
Update: Pleasekeep in mind that if you sync your Mp3 player with a computer that hasa Windows Media Player 9 or 10, you should do these steps again
