    To replace battery on YH920. Remove 4 screws on back with jewellers screwdriver, gently lift off back.Carefully Lift out hardisk - its not fixed, just wedged in with a plastic surround. battery is then easily lifted out and the small plug can be disconnected. Make sure to note which way round the connector goes. Re-assembly is the opposite procedure. Replacement batteries are available from http://www.batteryupgrade.com/products.p...



    All the best.

DON'T DO IT! I was SO EXCITED to find this post 2 days after it went up. It addressed exactly the problem I'd been having with my YH-920 (getting maybe 30-40 minutes off a charge). I ordered from the suggested supplier (not cheap at today's exchange rate) and eagerly tore into the project Thanksgiving night. Disassembling the player is as easy as advertised, but the replacement battery simply DOES NOT FIT the machine. Batteryupgrade.com advertises it as a replacement for the YH-920, and the package is stickered with the same information, but it's between 1/16th and 1/8th inch too long for the battery bay. Trying to make it work destroyed my MP3 player ("device can't initialize HDD," a message I still get after reinstalling the original battery). Now I'm trying to get a refund. Wish me luck.

    No, it didn't work and I ended up throwing the device away. (I have hated Samsung electronics over the years.)

    Sorry the reply was 7 years too late! :( . Haven't been to this site in that long.

THANKS for the warning!!!

The solution sounds like a great one, with the right battery. Sorry you had a problem.

I just ordered a battery ($15.48 shipped) from licketysplitauctions on ebay. Seller guarantees refund, even for postage if it's not right.

So .. we'll see in a week or so if it's the right one.

    YES! It is the right one! Order the battery from icketysplitauctions on ebay. (Seller guarantees refund, even for postage if it's not right.)

    I put the battery in today, and the fit is perfect. It's an easy install, took about 5 minutes. Just be careful taking the harddrive in and out, per the earlier post. Also, be gentle with the battery leads when pulling it out.

Can't download music from Napster to YH-920


Move all the files to the windows media player. So the songs are listed in the media player. Then connect the device and use the sync option in the media player. There may also be a sync option in napster but I think the windows media player would work better.

CHANGING THE BATTERY


If you remove the battery it will all be lost.

You can back up your files on the computer first by opening the player in My Computer and copying the files to you hard drive.

When you have changed the battery open it again in My Computer and drag them back in.

Do I Have the Correct Battery?? What do the mAh numbers REALLY mean?


Yes, your playtime will be reduced using the 750mAh. It won't hurt to get a larger mAh rating as long as the voltage is the same. Of couse it needs to fit.

Using Windows Media Player 11 or Real Player 10.5 to Transfer Music


I have one of these too and it cannot be used with media player 11 as there are no updated drivers. Use media player 10 and you should have no problems.

Change the battery, I had the same problem. DO NOT buy a battery directly from samsung - they will charge you close to $60 (bastards). Get it on eBay, I just got mine for $10 and it works great.
