    My recent problem with my MP3 Player is it stopped turning on. When you press the power button, it will load but then freezes. I have also notice before this happened, I was unable to remove files off of the player. The player would displays the folders but every time I try to remove the folders, there is an error saying it can not be done because the device is disconnected and not responding. But it is clearly plug into my desk top. Please help!

It is possible that either your cable is bad or the battery is dead. but first try hitting the reset button on the back-(it is a tiny hole on the back, towards the bottom) - use a small paperclip

I have the same problem with my YPU3, it happen when I first charged it using my (Dell) laptop,
I was thought it because of short circuit of my laptop's USB port. but infact, that's not the causes.
the YPU3 can not turn on the LCD, just blank, but the blue light on top is blinking when anytime I press the touch panel button, it still can play the music, but it's just the LCD turn off blank.

I event had sent it to samsung to be repaired, and I had received it back, almost 3 weeks of waiting.
Now It's happening again, for twice, when I pluged it on my other laptop (Acer), it show "charging ...", but only a few second after that, .... gotcha.... it happening again, my YPU3 LCD is shut off, I tired having this trouble, I don't know what should I resend it to be repair again? or just throw it away, should I wait for another 3 weeks and then getting it for happening again?... because they told me they wont replaced it with the new one, they will just fix it?

I have read everyting wroten on the manual page, I belive I did not doing anything careless, did not breaking anything, I always taking my stuff gently, I event still using my 5 years old cellphone and never drop it off.

I hope there's some easier solution instead of sending it to the distrubutor to be repaired.
please help, thank you.
