    I purchased a T10 and installed the media player from the disc provided. I managed to transfer 1 MP3 disc but cannot get the media player to even read the second one. There is data on the disc as I can see it through Explorer. The programme appears to lock up my computer and even when I try to quit the programme it will not respond. The only solution is to switch off my PC and reboot

    yes, I have the same problem. My PC won't recognise the player. I've spent hours trying to find a way but eventually gave up and bought a Creative Zen player for £19.99 which works perfectly and does more than the samsung. Samsung were most unhelpful when I contacted them.

    I have a similar problem.

    I amrunning WMP11 on XP SP2 (as required). When I connect the T10, windows dectects new hardware and then goes insearch of the driver-but with no joy- it just gives up!!

    WMP cannot sync and wont even detect the device

    Crazy!

Heres how I solved this problem
- I was running XP SP2 with WMP10
(Windows Media Player 10)
- Windows will not recognise the T10 unless it has the right MTP (Media transfer Proticol) drivers. This is the little yellow flag you may see on the task bar adter Windows detects the device and trys to install the driver. The drivers are only found in WMP11. Therefore unless you are running WMP 11 your T10 won't sinc or be recognised.
- The Samsung software wont help- so don't bother even installing it as WMP11 has the drivers and does everything the Samsung software does + more.
- I tried to download and install WMP11 directly from the microsoft website but my PC failed the authentcation so I saved the file to my HD instead.
-I then unpacked the WMP11.exe file using WinRAR which i downloaded for free from http://www.download.com/WinRAR/3000-2250_4-10745708.html.
- I individually ran the WMP11 install file and then all of the other unpacked files by double clicking on them (it takes some time). This installed WMP 11
- I then shut down the PC, plugged in My T10 and WMP/windows recognised the T10!

I had a friend who alos did the above but had a couple of problems- he uninstalled WMP10, Installed WMP11 using the WinRAR method above and it didn't work. After uninstalling WMP11 and then reinstalling it again using the WinRAR to un pack it it finally worked after a couple of re boots.

Note: Prior to using the above method i googled and tried several other ways to get the T10 recognised and none worked. From what I can tell you Need WMP 11

Hope this helps

    A couple of things to Add

    - If you have WMP11 already you might be running an older version. So it will pay to download the most recent version from windows.

    - I don't know if this fix will work for XP SP3- but considering that the drivers are in WMP11 I don't see why not.

Old discussion but I had the same problem:

Computer with xp sp3 wouldnt recognise t10. Not sure if all these sequence of events are necessary but I managed to get it working by:

  1. Insalling EmoDio software found at http://www.samsung.com/us/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP01&prd_ia_cd=03040200&prd_mdl_cd=&prd_mdl_name=YP-T10JAB
  2. Going to Control Panel > System > Device Manager
  3. Right clicking > T10 (within windows potable devices) and update driver

Solution: use Linux!
I too cannot connect this device using WinXP SP3. There does not seem to be a solution for this OS. If I had known that the T10 was not a standard USB mass-storage device (like a memory stick) I would never have bought it.
Fortunately, I am able to connect it to my Linux machine and mount it easily using mtpfs, which is an implementation of the MTP file system, and then manage the files on the device just as if it were another hard drive.

There is no solution to this issue. If you can, roll back WMP11 to WMP10. If you are using windows XP SP 3 you are out of luck. The T10 depends on MTP drivers which are rolled out by Windows via WMP. The newest versions do not work with the player (my guess is the player incorrectly implements the driver and is now broken).
I have been fighting with Samsung over this matter for 3 weeks now. They told me I am out of luck - they cannot guarantee compatability with future versions of WMP or Windows. I was told to call microsoft and then hung up on.
I would suggest that if you can get a refund on the product do so - and avoid buying Samsung products - specifically in Canada. They're support process has been awful - insulting - and useless. Samsung US was somewhat better.

I contacted Samsung and they said to delete Itunes because it blocks the Samsung T10. This didn't work but I restored m PC back to before I restored Itunes and it worked perfectly. Maybe This will help

This is absolutely ridiculous!!!

This is one of hundreds of forums on how to connect a brand new samsung model phone to your pc! It is not the search for a magnetic monopole!

I have a half major in computer science and fortunately understand most of the instructions and problems mentioned above but if my parents or plenty of other techno idiot friends of mine were to try the same thing they'd be screwed!

I will try the stuff above and enter the third hour of trying to get a music file onto my phone. Frankly I'm disappointed in samsung and think they should be ashamed of themselves! If the the phone has compatibility issues sort them out don't put out a piece of **** phone with a software cd that just doesn't work!!!

    I just downloaded and installed WMP 11 having uninstalled the SMS software and it worked fine. It's actually easier to manage your music through WMP anyway.

Why when i plug the MP3 player (YP-T10) into the computer, the computer says 'One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognise it'?


Here are a few things you can try:
1) Plug it in to other USB ports of your PC/laptop. The port might be faulty. 2) Replace the USB cable 3) Download the latest driver from Samsung's website here:

How i get Samsung yp-t10 software


Hi there
You don't need any software, when you plug it into your computer it should be recognised as a USB Mass Storage Device. This will allow you to drag and drop files like any other drive.
According to the manual, if this doesn't work there is a reset button on the back that will need to be pushed.
The software is only used for converting the file formats, you can use iTunes to convert those if you need to.

Will not connect


If you've exhausted all means on the Samsung website, this is worth a shot -
Disconnect the player from the PC, and make sure the mp3 player is turned off. Hold in the volume + button on the mp3 player, and reconnect the player to your pc while holding in the volume + button. Continue holding the volume + for 10-15 seconds until a "Found New Hardware Wizard" pops up. It should recover your device if there isn't anything internally wrong with the player. Warning: this procedure will result in your songs being erased off the player, so they will have to be reloaded.
