Personally, I find that trying to manage an mp3 player with an application like windows media player or winamp and especially itunes makes it harder than it really is to put the music that you want onto your device. Since you have Windows and a Samsung U3, you can drag the songs that you want directly into the device without using any additional software.

plug in your mp3 player and go to my computer

right-click on the mp3 player icon and select "open folder to view files"

a window should pop up and either be blank or have a folder that says "music" or something like that. Navigate to where the music is stored on the player.

Now you can open "my music" or media studio 5 or wherever you have the music that you want on the player, and highlight the music that you want.

right click on the music and select copy (or Ctrl+C)

go to the mp3 player window and right click inside of it and select "paste"

a window should pop up with a loading bar and that should get the music onto your player. Just think of the U3 as a really fancy flash drive. Hope this helps!

If u have problem your pc doesnt recognize your samsung YP-U3 MP3 player this is the solution-
REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yes yes yes yes!!!!!!!!
I solved the problem after i was really crazy of anger with samsung company, but i found this solution in one forum.Thank you
very much, anonymous Guest!!!!!
Hi All,
I just solved the problem after many attempts!
It works for me, and i hope it works for you too~First install Windows media player 10!
When I plug in my YP-U3 player, the computer says it needs to search for a driver, then i let it search it online. But it normally
won't search the driver on the internet. Then, it will give a prompt to ask if you want to find a solution or search the driver from
the PC. Choose the second option, searching from the PC. Then change the directory to C: (Which is the most crucial part).
After a while, the driver should be found and a warning message will appear. Forget about the warning, choose install the
hardware anyway, player should be recognized by then.
(I have had windows media player 11(10 also works), direct X 9...etc. before installing the driver)

Can not open the samsung YP-U3 because i have no driver,


When you install the software supplied by Samsung it states that you must have at least Windows Media Player 9. They got that wrong. The YP-U3 player for some reason is classed as a Windows Portable Device and not as a Mass Storage Device. The Windows Portable Devices driver was not included until Media Player 10.

Just install Media player 10 and that's you done. Even if you then uninstall Media player 10 the drivers will remain. It installs about 7 dll files all beginning with wpd into the windows\system32 folder. If you dont have these the player wont function.

The Samsung website was as much use as a chocolate teapot. It was only that i found the player would work on some pc's and not others (and the constant nagging from my daughter) that i did some research.

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.

Portable


Hi Guys,

Downloaded Microsoft Media Player version 11 and installed.
I recall somebody mentioning this somewhere. Now when I go to device manager and select update driver the YP-U3 device driver is found automatically.
Also downloaded other software from Samsung website.
