Plug it into the usb. Hold down the right button untill it makes a connection with the usb..Go to my computer and find the drive and it will probably say format this drive and then do it.  There thats a start..

I had the same error message and was told by Samsung that I needed to send my MP-3 player to their service center. It would seem that the Hard Drive crashed. I had to get a "Transaction Number" from the Service Rep at Samsung before I could even send the MP-3 back. Mine was out of warranty so it was going to cost me $125.00 for parts and labor to have it fixed.

The device cannot initialize HDD?


Remove the back panel of the player you will probably find that it will work fine. I did this to my daughters unit and found that the panel was pushed in and depressing the reset button all the time. I rescued it out of the garbage when she bought an i-pod, now I have this unit for myself and it works great.

SAMSUNG YH920GS- Error Message- device cannot initialize hdd


You are missing a critical update from Microsoft that will allow the computer to recognize this as an MTP device rather than an MSD device - this is a new problem that did not exist before.

Try a firmware upgrade, but it may not be successful since the repair was unsuccesssful.

Otherwise, get all the most recent Windows Updates from www.microsoft.com.

If none of the above work, write me back.

I know your problem. Your HDD is not clipped in. Press that little square circut thing in untill you hear a click.

The HDD is disconnected from the player. When you open up the player just carefully push the circut board thing on the gold foil behind the hdd in untill it clicks.
