Question about Samsung Yepp YP-T9 Digital Media Player
I've searched all over the web for anything resembling my problem but haven't had any luck. I got my player yesterday and when I plugged it into the USB port, it was recognized correctly and Windows XP automatically installed the drivers for it. I didn't install the software that came with the player because I prefer to just drag and drop files into it using windows explorer. So once the drivers were installed, the action prompt came up asking me to either open the main player folder to explore, or to add pictures (I have no idea why this option came up). So I chose the explorer and moved a bunch of my songs onto the player. Here is where the problem begins: I originally transfer the song onto the player titled "08 - Enter Sandman" for example. Then once it is moved I rename it to "Metallica - Enter Sandman". Then once I remove the player from the usb port and start it up, the song appears as the original title on the player rather than the new name I gave it. The new name shows up every time I open the player up in windows to explore the folders, but the old name is used on the player when I want to play the music. I have no idea what is going on here, and the same thing happens if I go to rename a folder, ie: I'll rename a folder then when I start the player, the old name is still being used. The second issue is that the player is not recognized as a device that can be safely removed, so all I can do is pull it out once it is fully charged. I have another T9, which is recognized as the F Drive once it is plugged in and works fine. The new one I have is recognized under "Other Devices" and is not recognized when I right click the remove hardware safely tab to try and remove it. I tried to update the USB drivers and the firmware on the player and that has not worked. Sorry this is so long, but I really have no clue as to what to do. Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks.
It sounds as if it a problem with write caching.
Basically, if write caching is enabled, any changes you make to the files in Windows are not actually carried out at the time, but are saved into memory and then when you select safe removal they are written to the external device in one go. From what you describe, since you can't select safe removal, it sounds as if the changes are never being written to your player.
Go to My Computer, right-click the icon for your player and select properties.
Go to the hardware tab, scroll down the list and highlight your player and then click properties.
Go to the policies tab and make sure 'optimize for quick removal' is selected.
Ok your way back out.
Hopefully this should solve the problem.
