Question about Audio Players & Recorders
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 Wizard.
Go to the following page on Samsung's website and select your EXACT model number - the part that comes after the YP-K3 - if they still have the software, you will find it there:

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.

SOURCE: 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!!!!!

SOURCE: device not detected!
Well I was facing a similar problem and none of the above mentioned solutions worked really for me until I noticed that the device uses MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) for data transfer and isn't just a mass storage USB device like most other MP3s.
The above blabbering aside here is the solution:
1. Download Windows Meda format 11 SDK and Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) Porting Kit from the Microsoft Website.
2. Install the above mention software plugins and Restart your computer.
3. Connect your MP3 to your USB port (note: better connect it first to a main hard wired USB port rather than Cardbus or Hub Port at least for the first time then u can connect it later to a hub) and thats it it should be recognised as an MTP device and then the name of your MP3 will show in the system tray as a portable device as well as the model number in your device manager.
