    My Samsung YPK5JAb is frozen. I have unlocked it, reset it and reinstalled it. It is one day out of warranty. Is it programmed to do this so I have to have it repaired?

There is a lock/hold switch that is engaged - look at the user's manual to see the location of it

have you tried updating the firmware? Go to Samsung.com support > download center > type in the model number (yp-k5jab) click on firmware, and download the version that corresponds with your device. install the firmware updater on your computer, plug in your device. and flash the firmware. (this will erase ALL songs and settings so you will want to back those up first). After that its like brand new. Keep the updater handy, since this might crop up again.

Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware.

Make sure you have a compatible OS - as in, not Vista; and then reformat the player - plugging it into another computer caused a formatting change.
