Hi, I recently spoke to the tchnicians from Samsung who put me onto the Samsung website where you can download the Samsung media Player. That also allows you to sync the unit. Thanks

Here is the user manual for your player if you need it; http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200601/20060124115711375_YPZ5-USA-ENGLISH-0.0.pdf Page 18 states that you can only sync with wmp 10, there is no alternative software that will do the job. Hope this helps :)

My Samsung YP-Z5 player wont respond to charging. Tried plugging into several USB ports on different computers but wont charge. Its constantly displaying .... Low Battery & USB Disabled. I was...

Yes, they only last two to three years.

A search of eBay, a place i look to check availability gives a number available.
Search "Samsung YP-Z5 battery"

If you are able to open up the case You could cut off the existing battery leads close to the battery and join the two wires. Soldering is preferred if you have an insulated tip soldering iron.
Otherwise twisting the wires together is probably good enough.
Tape the joins to strengthen and insulate them.

YP-Z5

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard

Samsung YP-z5 won't connect to the PC!

This might help getting it connected to the computer.

UMS mode allows the Z5 to interface to the computer as if it were a removable hard drive. You can then use Windows File Explorer to manage the files in the Z5.

To get into UMS mode, connect the Z5 to the USB port while simultaneously holding down the "return" button (the top of the square keypad) while connecting. This will put the player into UMS mode for that connection period only.

If you upgrade to the new firmware, you have the option of making it always connect in UMS mode.

The steps to install the latest firmware are:
(1) Download version 2.37 or newest of the Z5 firmware http://www.samsung.com.

(2) Unzip it to get the file named "Z5Update.dat".

(3) Disconnect the Z5 from the USB port.

(4) Reconnect the Z5 to the USB port while simultaneously holding down the "return" button (the top of the square keypad) while connecting. This will put the player into UMS mode for that connection period only.

(5) Open a File Explorer window, and find the YP-Z5 device.

(6) At this point, make sure the Z5 is fully charged and has at least 30MBytes of free space.

(7) Copy the file "Z5Update.dat" to the root directory of the YP-Z5 device.

(8) Now disconnect the Z5 from the USB port.

(9) The Z5 will display the option to upgrade to the new software, or to cancel.

(10) Select "Upgrade". This will power off the Z5.

(11) Connect the USB cable to the Z5. Now it will upgrade the firmware under USB power. DO NOT DISCONNECT THE USB UNTIL THE UPGRADE FINISHES. After finishing the upgrade, new firmware will be started automatically.

(12) Check the version information in the "Settings > System Info > Version" tab.

Now you can turn on the UMS only option.
Settings / System Info / UMS Only = On

Sync with windows media player

I have the same issue where my pc won't recognise my mp3, or only occassionally does, and then locks up. The problem with media player is it eats up so much memory while trying to synch files / delete / add etc and brings your pc to a grinding halt. So the solution I'm told is the MS Synch Tool, download off MS site and use it rather than the player to switch your files. I'm trying it now.
