Ok you need to know exactly what model number player you are using as there are three versions of the YP-T8. * YP-T8A * YP-T8X * YP-T8Z Once you know that then you go to the samsung site and download the appropriate driver. Looks something like this: FM/200611/20061107201844343_YP_T8_ROM_20060609_138US.zip Once you do that you have to unzip or extract the file. Windows should do this automatically. According to the directions you then take the files that it unzips and put them on your mp3 player. So connect your mp3 player to the computer via that usb cable. It should show up as a Removable Device under My Computer. Find the files you just extracted. Should be YP_T8.fnt, YP-T8.rom and YP-T8.img You then simply copy those files into the mp3 player which is that new removable device drive. The root folder is the first area you see when you first explore the drive. i.e. any folder you see on that mp3 player when you double click on it is actually a sub-folder and not the root folder. So open it up and copy those files right there. After which you then do as the directions say. Unplug the mp3 player, power it off and then connect your charger. It says it will automatically upgrade the firmware and then automatically turn on so it should just be a waiting game at that point. Good luck!

I can not get my yp-t8 to download to my pc my pc is xp home and the driver that ihave is win 98

Hello,

If the driver you mention is only for Win98, it is of no use in XP.

For the YP-T8 there are 3 model players, that might need different driver, software and firmware (under OS there's a listing for the supported Operating Systems).
Select your model on next page:
http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/search/supportSearchModelResult.do?menu=SP00&searchWord=ypt8&default_searchInputBox_value=Enter+model+number+or+keywords&searchInputBox=yp-t8
Next select the matching driver, software for your computer.
Download and install the driver and software.

Also look under firmware, to see if there are updates for the player.

How do you put videos on it

You either drag & drog the files to the removable disk or go to Samsung Multimedia Studio and select 'export' and select 'export videos to device' on the drop-down menu. If the files aren't in the correct format then it will do that and transfer the files.

Samsung yp t9

Firstly, "re-set" the T9 (ie hold 'MENU' & "REC', for 3 secs to re-initialise the built-in firmware - refer to your manual, or download manual off Samsung website). This procedure will overide everything. If this gets it goin, then download the latest firmware update from Samsung website (download centre/mp3) and save newest firmware onto your T8 - your manual should explain how to do this. Always update your T9 with latest firmware when available (appropriate with your Windows OS), to eliminate any bugs in the firmware. Failing this, then a replacement battery is the next step. If still under warranty (ie less than 12mnths old), then have an approved Samsung service agent look at it Free of charge. Good luck.

Converting MPEG-4 files into svi

Hmph. You got me thinking. Well, here are some suggestions: 1)try to re-install samsung multimedia studio. 2)try a different mpeg4 file to convert. If that doesn't work, something is terribly wrong. 3)go to this site: http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=3046&s=95 A download for k-lite codec pack should instantly start. Hope this works! If none of these work, then you may just have a virus somewhere.

System loading. . . forever

Yes. Open up the hatch to where the USB jack is. Either below it or on top of it is a small opening that has a small white buton there. Hold it for ten seconds with a pin or something, then see if it works. If not, download sme firmware for your ypt8. Go on the samsung site, they should have some available (it might take a little searching, though). Hope I'm not too late!
