Question about Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Computer Freezes when Samsung YP-U3 in USB Port

When I plug my Samsung YP-U3 into the USB port of my computer, the computer completely freezes! It acts like the mouse and keyboard are unplugged, because I can't move the cursor, open/close any programs, etc. I experienced this problem earlier but thought I had a solution: it seemed to work OK if I had Windows Media Player open BEFORE I plugged in the MP3 player. Last night, however, it still froze my computer even though WMP was open.

I had to reboot my computer (by holding the power button, because the mouse and keyboard didn't work) about 50 times before it finally unfroze! Now I'm afraid to plug my MP3 in at all! Help!

Get the firmware upgrade from the Samsung website:
http://www.samsung.com/us/support/download/supportDown.do?group=audiovideo&type=mp3players&subtype=flashmemory&model_nm=YP-U3JQPY&language=&cate_type=all&dType=D&mType=FM&vType=L&prd_ia_cd=03040200&disp_nm=YP-U3JQPY

But, it sounds like the USB interface on your computer is diverting all of the power to the USB port, and away from the mouse/keyboard slots - you may need to contact your pc manufacturer on that one.

Not detected by computer


Try to plug it to other usb ports on your computer. If it still not being detected, try to restart the computer then plug it back.

If it still does not work, plug the mp3 player to other computer just to test if this is a usb port problem.

MP3 can't work normally


With the YP-u3 connected to the USB port and internet connected, start Samsung Media Studio software, you should get notification of a firmware update to download which fixed the recognition problem for me
