    No it's not on hold. I think that the USB cable is getting defective. If so, how can it charge the player?
    That's pretty strange.

I need a charger for my Samsung YP-53. Are they still available? Where can I get one?

Try Amazon:

Wont pick it up

Please check the following:

1. Make sure that the USB cable of your MP3 is known working.
2. Connect your MP3 into different USB port of your computer.
3. Connect the MP3 into different computer to see if there's a problem with the computer or with the MP3.

If the MP3 gets detected using another computer, then there's something wrong with your computer. It could be that there's a drive letter conflict or the USB ports could be weak to detect the device.

Have a great day!


Samsung YP-S3 not recognized by computer

I think you have answered the question yourself. Change the USB cable.
If that doesn't make any difference try searching for the hardware again. Check the settings and drivers are working. Roll back the driver etc.
