I have a couple solutions.

A: If it is only recognized as a a generic USB device, try updating your Windows Media Player to something more recent. It surprisingly works msot of the time, and doesn't take too long.

B: Press the reset button on the back of the MP3 player (in a tiny hole on the back of the device; poke it with a needle or the like. Don't worry, it won't erase your files!) That should set it to factory default configuration, and sometimes works.

C: The firmware on the device might be corrupt. EXTREMELY common in these MP3 players, and you might be out of luck. Symptoms include mismanaging of your files on the device (multiple dividers of the same artist), random pixelation on the screen, 'permanent-lock', and complete malfunction. If this is the case, invest in a new MP3 player. For future reference, always remove the MP3 player after AND ONLY AFTER you have used the 'safely remove hardware' window to remove the device, and make sure you do not remove it when files or information is being transferred to or from the computer.

I cannot install my samsung YP-K3J MP3 Player onto my PC - HELP!!


Try to update the driver of the player.

Go to the START menu.
Click on RUN. type in devmgmt.msc and hit enter.
Make sure you have the player plugged in and the installer CD should be on your CD drive.
Now look for the category PORTABLE DEVICES or OTHER DEVICES.
the YP-K3 should be listed there with a yellow question mark.
Right click on it and select update driver. Follow the prompts to update.
The player should be recognized after that.

Hope this helps!

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!!!!!

1. You can download the software from the samsung website

2. The usb message is nothing - it is just telling you that you have a USB 1.1 hub but you well get better transfer speeds using a USB 2 hub, or you can connect it to a usb port directly

If you have Windows Media Player, just plug it in using the proprietary usb cable, and it should show up in Media Player. Click the Sync tab, and simply drag and drop.
