Mac cannot play it

When I connect the mp3 to my mac it changes the battery but the mp3 does not appear in the desktop. It seems the mac does not recognize it. I cannot install the cd because it is a small cd. What can I do?

Thank you

Hey,

I had the same problem...here is what you have to do, YOU WILL NEED someone with a windows operating system who has windows media player 9 or higher, because these players recognize yp-u3 and you can write into their SYSTEM folder! fist of all save all your files from the mp3 because you will delete them!

1) you have to download the v1.11 firmware from

http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=hu&CttFileID=1496692&CDCttType=FM&ModelType=N&ModelName=YP-U3JAB&VPath=FM/200709/20070918123608406_YP_U3_MTP_FW_VER111EU_070906_WEB.zip

this is from the official samsung site.

2) unzipp it: there are two files with extensions: .ROM and .RSC

now you have tt go to your friend who has the above described windows op. system. if you connect the mp3 player if you open my computer you will see the mp3 player appear as portable device or something like that...find the system folder.

Copy the .ROM first inside the SYStem folder

remove safely your mp3

restart your mp3

it will say something like the firmware is being installed..than it will start

put it back into the computer

copy the .RSC file into the SYSTEM folder...this is the resource file

now remove it safely again

restart it. it will update the resource file.

now go in the menu of the mo3 to settings .. system .. format. this will clean up the memory.

now the mac will recognize your mp3 but you will not be able to copy files, without this program:

NOw you are done. it works for me perfectly...mac os x leopard, macbook.

cheers

I can't turn on dont do nothing


Try changing the battery. Try charging the battery. Try plugging it into your computer, PC, Mac, desktop, or laptop.
If all else fails, your MP3 player could possibly have water or humidity damage (which are relatively the same thing)

How can I open my iPod on my Mac Desktop?


<p>When you connect your iPod to your Mac desktop or laptop computer, the iPod name and the icon on the desktop. Most people have no opportunity to open the iPod from the desktop to iTunes music on a regular basis, generally have short, any securities, making them difficult to recognize. However, if you use your iPod in disk mode - basically a portable hard drive - to open your Mac desktop is the fastest way to open the files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect the cable from the iPod charger to the bottom of the iPod and the other end into a USB port on your Mac should be noted that the iPod shuffle is upside down in the dock. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Wait until the iPod appears on the desktop. If not, pull and plug the charger cable, sometimes it takes a couple of tries. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Double-click the iPod icon on the desktop when it appears. IPod open up and show your files. <br />

My sony ereader has been plugged in for 2 nights to my MAC, and each morning it still only has 1 battery cell left. The computer detects it and the ereader displays the USB cable is connected. How do I...


Hi!

Seems like your MAC goes into sleep mode, when this happens, the computer does not supply power to the USB ports to save power. When the computer does this, there is a big change that will drain out the battery of the Reader. You can try this:

1. Connect the reader to the computer
2. Hit the reset button while is connected for 3 seconds (Reset is located at the bottom of the unit)
3. Leave the reader charging for about 40 minutes then disconnect the reader and check the battery meter
4. If you can see that the reader took some charge then leave it connected for 2 hours or until the redlight goes off

Good Luck!

Samsung YP-Z5F MP3 player malfunction


I have that kind of Mp3 Player too... that happened to me, but the PC was able to read mine. However, the reason why the message: "Low Battery USB Disabled" appears, is that you still have remaining battery life, but will only last for less than an hour (indicated by low light and red empty battery sign) you have to make sure the Mp3 is completely discharged. (you'll be notified when you turn on the device while it says: "Low Battery") once that it is completely discharged, you can now plug in the USB cable with the device to the PC... if problem persists, check your PC.. can it read the device? Check if a notification balloon appears at the bottom right corner of the monitor screen. It should say, "Found New Hardware... Samsung YP-Z5F..." if it did not appear, try to INSTALL using the Installation CD given when you bought the product. Just insert the disk into the PC and continue on, then when it is already installed and ready for use, plug in the device! This may be a little hard, but this is the only way I know. Feel free to ask me! I am no technician but I know a lot on devices and fine mechanics. Good luck!

Ok my mp3 works but the clock portion does not ,why is that?


Simply, you need a new battery....here is the secret....not everyone knows how to change the watch battery and re-install the mp3 device properly. Please do not attempt to change the battery yourself...there are delicate springs inside and if they are damaged, your watch will malfunction. Only a professional should change the battery. if need futher assistance you can call Mercer at 661 917 4615 $35,00 return watch postage included with price.

Mac osx and photo & mp3 how to


No, newer versions of MAC OS X are plug and play and you should just be able to plug the unit in and it should pop up on your desktop. Make sure before you connect it, you turn on player, go to settings, USB MODE and make sure USB mode is set to MSC.

Problem with max. volume


Not Mac compatible largely.

ALL Mp3 players have a disclaimer telling you not to play it at max volume. Get adjustable headphones to resolve problem
