    I bought the yh920 used and even though media player said the device was completely empty of music, the playlist on the mp3 player showed it was full of music. I have done the reformat on the player and reinstalled the firmware, although Samsung site said OS should be XP and I have Vista. Now the player says the firmware needs repaired and to connect to recovery utility. However, when I try to use recovery utility my computer says no device connected and try again. I have loaded my music on the player through media player, and I am able to play music stored on the players HDD through media player, however, the mp3 player is completely useless since it will always shut itself off as soon as I disconnect it from the USB.

I have had my player since Xmas 2004 and it has been completely useless since about Jan 2005 - I had exactly the same problem. I tried everything and Samsung were useless too ("turn it off and back on again"). None of the software patches etc on their website worked, but I recently just found it in a box and thought I'd give it another go....

So, what worked for me was to plug it in to my computer and although a bunch of error message come up I can still see it in the 'my computer' folder. Right-click the icon and click 'format'. Leave it as FAT32 and all the other settings the same too, but click the 'quick format' checkbox (or whatever it says in English - I'm running the Spanish version of Windows). This will completely wipe the thing clean, so make sure you have a copy of any music files etc currently on there...

Then go to the Samsung website, then 'support'. Enter the player you have and it will take you to the downloads page. Click the 'Firmware tab' then download the file called " YH-920GS YH-920 System files (ver.1.0)" Once you have downloaded that just open the folder and copy and paste all the files onto the empty mp3 player via 'my computer'.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable tothe MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting musicfiles to mp3 file format :-

I have this player and it drives me crazy, too.

I don't know if this will help delete what you don't want but plug the sandisk into your computer and open to view the contents. when you see the list of folders, at the top click on tools--then folder options--then view make sure "show hidden files and folders" is checked. click ok. then if you can see the folder you want to delete, highlight it and press the delete key on your keyboard. (if you want to save it, copy it to your hard drive instead). to put on a cd this may be a roundabout way but is fairly simple. put the cd in the computer, using windows media player rip it and save songs in a folder on the hard drive. save as mp3 (or wma should work, too.) you can read on the net how to do this. once the songs are in the folder, close media play. go to the folder and the hard drive and copy it to the sandisk . you can see on your computer if it is there. unplug from the computer and hopefully you can find it and play the songs. good luck!

Ipod suffle

It won't play music while connected to computer, that's for sure. It only plays when it's disconnected from the wall charger and computer.

The songs could be in the wrong format
AAC is iTunes native format
Mp3 generally works
WMA is iffy - only unprotected (non-DRM) files will work
Streaming songs won't work
