    Doesn't matter how many times you remove the tracks and replace them, still get Playback Error too.

    Just recently when i rip a new cd to my computer using windows media player 11 w/ xp, when i sync it to my yp-z5, the player says playback error, cycles thru all the songs seeing if it can play any. when i sync up older cds i already ripped onto my computer, they work just fine. seems as if must be issue w/ wmp. can anyone help me, please?

    It seems like its a goofy oversight on the part of the manufacturers. It doesn't seem to matter for some MP3s, no matter how many times you press the reset switch, or how many times you upgrade downgrade the player software, the player just won't play some standard MP3 encoded tracks.

    Defective? Yes.
    Is Samsung aware of the problem? Yes.
    Does Samsung offer a solution or acknowledge the problem? No.
    Will Samsung fix it? No.

    As for a full refund - there's no other option.

    Even using Samsung's own Media player, this error happens with some files. Reading around on other forums, it seems that Samsung are being coy about the problem - pretending it doesn't really exist.

    My best advice (which I give below!) is to return the product for a full refund and never buy Samsung again. They're mostly using borrowed Japanese OEM technology (Hitachi storage, NEC chipset) against which they try to develop Samsung-branded products. Unfortunately they appear to be making some fundamental errors along the way, so my advice is buy either Japanese or US products only (Sony, Sandisk, Creative).

Error 80004004 keeps poping up and has problems connecting to the internet had netbook for a week


Windows Media Player Error 80004004 is generally produced when Windows Media Player can not complete an action because you have cancelled it. For example if you are downloading a DRM file from an online music download store such as Napster or MSN Music and you cancel the DRM licence acquisition part, Windows Media Player will produce the error message.
You are recommended not to cancel this part of the playback process because without a DRM licence your music or video file will not actually play in Windows Media Player.
However should you cancel the DRM licence download many sites allow you to redownload the licence with ease, simply go back to the site and locate a button or selection named "Redownload"

Downloaded music to 60g zen xtra


Hi there

I would suggest that you have a look at the file format, i.e .mp3 .wma and then make sure that you mp3 player supports that file format because if the mp3 player only supports mp3's then it will not play .wma. Please remember to give me a good rating.

Kind regards

DVD playback problems


Did you buy these DVD's out of the country? Are they burned? did you pick English and the United States of America when you set up the dvd player? Try unplugging the player for an hour, plugging in and resetting everything up
