Question about Samsung YP-K3 MP3 Player
I bought this player (yp k3) because I thought I'd be able to edit the songs just by changing the file name, but it says the files cannot be opened directly from this device when I try the solution suggested here going to properties and so on. When I sync the device not all files show up on the sync, i.e., there are waaay more files on the device than those that show up when I try and sync it to my computer. I want to be able to see these files so I can edit them.
It's probably just me but this is the most unintuitive, hard to use mp3 player ever (on the computer)
So I've copied songs from friends, and they have called them other names or spelt the names of the artist incorrectly, so in my player they of course turn up under different folders - I just want all the songs from one group to be in the same folder, so I just want to change the file name so it does this. sooo annoying. How do you EDIT the file names of songs once you have put them on the mp3 player?? I'm sooo annoyed right now.
Then the problem is not the mp3 player but your files. They are probably marked as read only. This usually happens if you copied them from another media like mp3.
Right click over the folder holding them, choose properties. In the new window you will seee an attribute called read only ticked. Untick it. Press OK. The computer will ask if you want to repeat this on all sub-folders. Choose Yes. This will allow you to edit your files.
If you have music files with Digital Music Security (DMS) you wont be able to edit them. Better to re-download them using p2p software.

Easy to do.
Connect your mp3 player to your computer.
By default the device is in MPT mode. In this mode you need to use media player or rhapsody or Samsung's own media software to transfer files. You need to have the music on your laptop. Once on the laptop you can edit the details - name, artist, etc to whatever you like. You can then drag it onto the player and it will keep those settings. remember to delete the files with the details you don;t want from the player
Go into my computer you will see yp-k3 device in the listing. You can edit the names directly this way but you cant move them to a folder.
