Has anyone worked out how to connect the Samsung YP-MT6 MP3 Player to a computer running Ubuntu? I thought it would just show up in the file manager or plugging it into the usb would pop up a 'driver required' hint... But no joy :( I presume I need a driver but where to find it? Samsung don't support Linux or at least there's no driver for this mp3 player on their site... Just the windows option :( Help?

I have own both a YP-T10 and YP-S5 samsung MP3 players and have experienced this myself, (1) First I checked what format my music was in and also where it is located on my MP3. (2) Then I tried resetting it, You can do this by pressing the rest button on the back, Its a small hole only big enough to fit a needle or a pin into it. It won't delete any files, Only reset the player. Then plug it back into your comp, if the files show in 'My Computer' and 'EmoDio/Samsung Media Studio' they should work fine in your MP3 player again:) Otherwise you might have to back it up and format the player but try the first 2 steps first.
Remove Mp3 player if you already connected to the USB port
Run the program (You should see something like: Please connect the device)
Hold down the Play button and connect the Mp3 Player to USB port
(Hold down the play button while you connect the device, you should see
a message (normally after 8 seconds) like: Initializing on YP-U2J Updater program screen)
After you hear the Windows chime "new device found" or the message
"Initializing" on YP-U2J Updater, you can now remove your hand from
Check the Format Data Area checkbox (By clicking the yes button, you will lose all of your data in your Mp3 player)
Click the "yes" button
Finally, click on the Start button (takes less than a minute). DO NOT REMOVE YOUR DEVICE
IMPORTANT: After updating the firmware, you MUST
disconnect the Mp3 player and turn it on. You will see a 20% message
for about 50 seconds and it will be restarted automatically.
keep in mind that if you sync your Mp3 player with a computer that has
a Windows Media Player 9 or 10, you should do these steps again
I had the same problem and solved it with this:
On the Samsung support page, there´s a knowledge base called "YP-T6 Or YP-MT6 Show No File And Zero Free Memory"
you need to download the latest firmare from the downloads section, then with the uptader on the PC, remove the battery from the YP-T5 or 6 and connect the USB cable to a PC while pressing and holding the play button on the YP-T. It should connect in a recovery mode which allows you to update the firmware, format the flash drive and get going again !
I am having the same problem on the Samsung YP-T6 and i think it is because i might have fried the harddrive by putting in a non-alkaline battery in it. its like trying to plug in a american plugin into a plugin in germany, you blow up the house...
