Hmm, I read around and a few people tried to plugin the USB from the back of the computer and not the front some said it work, some said nothing.

    Go to Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware
    > Add a hardware at the left menu. Follow the instructions and it
    should fix itself. You might also need the mp3 plugged into the USB
    while doing this.

Samsung player reset my files?


Like most Samsung electronics, the software is the pits, yet the hardware is generally quite good.
If the Samsung YP-K3 MP3 player continues to act erratically, a reboot, or reset, may help. Resetting this device allows you to reinitialize your player without losing your files or device settings.
The Reset hole is on the back of the device, toward the bottom. Press one end of a straightened paper clip into the Reset hole gently. Then allow the Samsung YP-K3 MP3 player to initialize.
You may want to upgrade and if you have, this may be why the files were reset.

How to make computer identify your device


I had a problem with my YP-K3 when i lost the installation cd as my computer no longer identified the device when i plugged it in, to solve this (on windows XP) go to
1: control panel
2:add hardware
3:connect your hardware device and click "yes i have connected the hardware"
4:scroll down and select install new hardware device
5:select install hardware that i manually select from a list
6:scroll down to windows portable devices
7:and choose MTP device
this should make it so your mp3 player is now recognised by the computer
hope it works

Nothing pop's in my screen comp,


I think I got it guys. forget WMP 9,. 10 , 11... I run win xp service pack 2 and could not install the samsung yp-u3 player. I kept having it found as a new hardware {portable device} but as we all know this software has no drivers, and the windows update produces MTP device error. Resulting in you not being able to see your player in XP. Well go to windows update site and search for a file called "mtppk12.exe" I'm pretty sure once you install that file and reboot, you will no longer have MTP device errors. However, I installed this at the same time i installed windows media player SDK. So maybe both files are required. Finally after 2 days of troubleshooting i got mine to work.

My YP-K3 won't turn on


Do you have mediaplayer 10 or 11 installed?

Media player 11 is seriously screwed up software and will cause your computer not to recognise the player
.
You will need to remove ALL traces of media player 11 from you computer.

YP-KR


I couldn't get the icon for the portable device either. I solved the problem by going to the Control Panel; used Add Hardware; and followed the prompts. I used the original Samsung K3 CD. And it worked! Good luck

MTP Error


When the YP-K3 2 gb device is plugged into the USB Port, the system says "Found New Hardware, Samsung YP-K3" which then switches to "MTP Device" and then fails on an MTP error. It seems to be searching for a driver, and cannot find one. H E L P!!!!!

YP-K3, will not install driver


You must use Windows Media Player to transfer the files to your YP-K. You can also use the Samsung software for it, but Windows Media Player is much easier.
