I have a Samsung YP Q1 4GB and have had no problems. The touchpad is OK once you get used to it, and works fine through a silicon skin. I just bought a 16GB model and I find the touchpad to be almost impossible to operate, as the up position is very insensitive and the OK (centre) function is oversensitive. It doesn't respond at all through the skin. Anyone got any ideas before I go for a refund?

i had recently bought this mp3 and had the same problem as you. i went online and read many solutions about drivers and stuff... geez! after 6 hours of frustration and researching online. i almost decided to blast the mp3 out of its misery. LOL! but i used my brain and i had finally solved my problem.
install samsung media on pc turn on your samsung yp-u3 go to settings go to system go to format select yes COMPLETE MP3 FORMAT
NEXT PLUG MP3 INTO USB go to control panel system hardware tab device manager samsung yp-u3 driver tab update driver
You have to update the driver of you player. Click on START menu and RUN. Type in devmgmt.msc and click ENTER. Now you Device Manager will pop up. Look for your player under Other Devices or Portable Devices Once you find it, right click on it and select Update Driver (make sure the installer disc is in your CD drive). It should work fine after that.
This is a common problem with these players. It is a hardware fault with the touch panel. It is probably why they were replaced with new models very quickly afterwards. The touch panel is a complete unit added to the device.
If you can get hold of a faulty unit on e-bay (with a working touchpad) you can easily replace the the touchpad without damaging any part of the mp3 player as it easily unscrews.
If you have a wireless mouse or a USB mouse plug in and get online to find a downloadable driver for your touch-pad. A lot of file adding and shifting with a touch-pad can get the system fragmented (Defragging may help) and driver files, .dll's, and others your touch-pad needs and uses can get buried in the clutter (file fragments) all over the floor so-to-speak. If defragmentation of your hard drive doesn't work just download new drivers. Here is a safe Download link to look in. There is just about everything here, free and safe too...

The touchpad problem is a hardware fault. I have bought a couple faulty ones of these with this problem. I bought some other faulty ones from ebay and just replaced the touchpads. It is easy enough to do.
The good thing about the player is it is easy to take apart and replace anything and wont leave it looking like a wreck when you are finished.
