I had similar problems and I got this fixed. The MP3 player comes with an installation CD. The recovery Utility program is bundled with Samsung Music studio program included in the CD. If it doesn't you can try finding it at samsung's website.

Install Samsung music studio.

When your done, go to START--> All Program--> YH-820 Samsung Music Studio--> Recovery Utility.

I'd reccomend formatting the device cuz this will almost guarantee your MP3 player can reboot fine after you disconnect it from your computer. Hope this helps you all.

I'm asking a favor in return. I hella dropped my Samsung MP3 player and now I hear clicks and beeps from the MP3 player like Robocop gone crazy. I neeeeeed helllppppp. Any help is appreciated. My Yahoo Instant Messenger is [email protected]

Dont be shy to help me.

Try formatting your player completely, then reinstall the firmware from scratch - another possibility is to remove windows media player (make sure you don't delete all your music files while doing this) and reinstall. If this doesn't help then it sounds as if the memory in the player could be faulty - check the warranty try a different cable and port to connect to in case that is the problem. There are numerous utilities that claim to repair windows registry errors, some of them may be worth a try - gives the links for the best that i have found for free. try updating the firmware from another pc - ask a friend if you can use their machine and uninstall everything after, especially if you think the problem is with your wmplayer. Hope this helps :)

Recovery firmware

It seems that your player needs an update, and to do that you need to do as it's telling you. Sync it with the PC/MAC that you load/edit it with and as long as that Computer has an internet connection the software included with the player should detect the player (That's if you installed the Samsung software?) and download the latest Firmware for your player and guide you through updating it.
I hope that helps, and Good Luck.
