    well im connected to the internet because @ the time i was on msn, but this pop up came up on my samsung media studios screen, saying information about a new update, one that would let me delete songs straigh off my mp3 without connecting to my computer, but whenever i clicked update now or yes it just kept saying "Failed in connecting to the update server. Please retry it!."

  • richard5coll Nov 15, 2008

    Yes same problem on my P2 tried to update the firmware, it seems to complete but doesnt initialize. all i get now when i turn it on is connect to usb and download resource file. ! also had a Samsung tech walk me through the update procedure manually and the same thing happened. I am really choked up about this. Have not had much joy out of Samsung in resolving this problem. Now i am stuck with a dead player of no use.

    For god sake give us a solution.

Can install new firmwire


1. Download Winrar here, its a freeware, this will help you open the file

2. Download the firmware here, the newest one is 4.13

3. Unzip the firmware file and select "extract to" using winrar, just extract it to the "desktop"

4. After the 2 files are extracted from the folder, select both of them, right-click and select "cut"

5. Now, go to "My Computer", double-click "P2" (that's the MP4 player) and double-click "internal storage", now, in this directory, "Paste" the 2 files you "cut" earlier, once the files have been successfully pasted (look at your PC screen and MP4 player and make sure nothing is transferring), exit the window, unplug the MP4 player and power it on, the player will be updating and turning of a few times, but once its of, turn it back on until the whole process is finished.

YP-P2 FIRMWARE PROBLEMS


I had the same problem!

But I found the fix for it after much searching.

First, download the latest firmware directly to your computer's desktop from the Samsung website: http://tinyurl.com/3j4su4

The file is a Zip one so : make sure you extract the 2 files to your desktop!

-Connect your P2 to your computer and go to My Computer.
-Double click the YP2 icon.
-Copy the 2 extracted files from your desktop into the open window. (Do not put them in an already existant folder).
-Unplug the connection from your computer and restart your player.
It will do an update and shut down. Restart it a second time and it will finish the second update.
- There you go, it should work no problem.

The firmware update from having your player connected to the Samsung Media Studio 5 for some reason doesn't work properly.
By doing in manually it works just fine.

The update link I provided is for a US based player.
Just go through the Samsung site to find an update for other contries if you need too and follow the same directions I give above to solve your issues.

Hope this helps!!!

P2 player


The video formats have to be in .svi thats the only format the player can pick up, emodio or the media player should do this. If not you could try to download a file converter and convert them into the right format maybe.
