To get your camcorder to work properly with your PC (and show up in Device Manager), you must install the software (the driver and editing software) that came with your camcorder. Your system also must meet the following minimum requirements: * CPU : Intel® Pentium III 450MHz processor compatible or better * Operating system : Windows® 98SE/ME/ 2000/XP * RAM : 128 MB or more * CD-ROM: 4x CD-ROM drive * VIDEO : 65,000-color or better video display card * Available USB port * Hard Disc : 4GB (8GB recommended) If the camcorder is still not being recognized after you have installed the software, reboot your computer, and then try another USB port or another USB cable. If your problem persists, contact Samsung Customer Care at 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864). Be sure to have the model number of your camcorder handy and basic information about your PC such as operating system, kind of CPU, and available memory.

Have you install the driver first before connecting it? Check out the Device manager entries if showing any yellow mark?
Goto start --> Run --> type in there --> devmgmt.msc this will open up the Device manager.
Check it and let me know. Have a nice day

My player isn't recognized by the Device Manager or Windows Media Player

I was experiencing this similar problem, and from my research so were alot of other people, what finally worked for me was this:

  • Update all the software on your computer via Phillips site
  • Open the Philips Device Manager
  • With the device connected and the 'connected to pc' screen showing on the GoGear, do a 'soft reset' by holding the Power Off + Volume Up buttons for a few seconds
  • As soon as the device restarts itself, hold the Volume Down button, the computer should now recognize the GoGear
  • Follow the onscreen directions to Repair the device
  • Thank the intarwebs.
