Keeps restting itself

I have a 2GB samsung mp3 player and recently it has started to reset itself and will only display mp3's and not wma's. When i try to play a wma it says play back error. The music doesn't appear on the music tab nor the all song tab on the menu. The music does however appear in the browse files tab section but I am unable to play the songs. When i connect the mp3 player to my laptop the mp3 player says it is connecting but never says connected and just reverts back to the menu screen. Thanks for any advice you can give me!

Firstly, try "re-setting" the Z5 (ie micro switch) first. If this doesn't resolve, then firstly save a backup of all your files...then use the 'format' function (ie open My Computer, then open the YP-Z5 folder, then look for the Format function), which will clean out your entire memory, including hidden files. Then download the latest firmware update from Samsung website (download centre/mp3) and save newest firmware onto your Z5. Always update your Z5 with latest firmware (appropriate with your Windows OS). Good luck.

My samsung mp3 player is frozen on. It won't let me do anything, including turn it off. If I press the reset button will that erase everything on it? Anyone know how to fix this??

Reset the unit by holding down the REST button until the unit shuts off by itself.

Resetting the unit will not delete files off of the player

My Samsung YP-U3JQP 2GB MP3 player skips past most of the tracks.

Many WMA's are DRM-protected - the DRM-protected tracks that you have loaded may not have transfer rights, even though they will play fine on a computer. The best bet is to download only songs that are in mp3 format. Another option, which is illegal, is to buy a DRM-stripper and strip your WMA's of the DRM-protection - but, it is illegal, costly, and time-consuming.

I had a similar problem like this a while back and i did a bit of research into it and i found that using my mp3 player incorrectly can result in Memory loss same with all types of memory.

But one thing that come across strange about this is the amount it says you've lost is a lot.

The thing is this could be because the music type. if you use WMA's which are smaller then MP3's may result in your been able to store the actually amount it says you can store.

If you feel like trying that go a head here's a piece of software you can use to convert your music into all types, but i recommened converting them into WMA's and trying then.

It's only a trial version but it's worth a go.

Good luck. Hope my advice was helpful.
