Question about Samsung YP Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

My Samsung YP-U6 can't be detected by my computer at all but it is perfectly working as mp3 player. It's actually functioning as my flashdrive before and I save some important files on it and I need to get them. What should I do? Please help me!

    I'm afraid to hit the reset button because surely, It will erase all the files in it right? It might also happen if I updated it's firmware. It is working as an mp3 player but when I connect it to the computer, it's not visible. I mean, It can't be trace and it's as if it's not actually there.

SOURCE: Samsung yepp/ YP-T6 reformated now can't put tunes back on.

Use the Samsung Firmware Updater to fix it. Mine did what all of you are speaking about. I was ready to toss it then I tried the firmware updater on the CD and it fixed it. You must copy all the files from the \setup\Programs\ and \setup\Binary\ folders on the Samsung CD to a folder on your hard drive. Then connect the player via USB and run stupdaterapp.exe. It will search for the device and pop up a menu. Check the Format Data Are box and click start. It takes a few minutes and wipes the device clean but it fixed mine.

How do you turn it on?


Here is the MANUAL for the Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Player. This is a pdf document, so you may need to install Adobe Acrobat Reader if you don't already have it installed.

Page 14 of the manual describes the turning on/off of the player.
While looking at the front of the device, the power button is the lower button on the right side. That same button is also the Play/Pause button. Press and briefly hold the button to turn on/off the device.

My Samsung YP-S2 Mp3 player can't be recognised by computers when I plug it in through the usb input (it used to work), therefore I'm not able to upload music on it anymore. How can I fix this bug?


Samsung Player Is No Longer Detected By Windows XP, Vista, Emodio Or
Samsung Media Studio.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When your computer doesn't recognize your Samsung MP3 player, programs
such as Samsung Media Studio (SMS), Emodio, Windows Media Player
(10 or 11) do not allow you to transfer files to your player.
In SMS and Emodio, the portable icon appears grayed out.
In Windows Media Player, you are prompted to connect a device.
Your PC may fail to recognize your player for a variety of reasons.
To begin troubleshooting, scroll down, and then click the operating
system your computer is currently running.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
General Operating System Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
On Windows computers, Samsung MP3 players require at least Windows XP
Service Pack 2. If you have an older operating system such as Windows
2000 or Windows 98, your computer won't recognize your player until you
upgrade your PC to at least Windows XP Service Pack 2.
If your PC is running Linux or MAC, it will not recognize some MP3
players that support only MTP mode. However, it will recognize players
that support UMS mode and list them as mass storage devices.
The following Samsung MP3 players support UMS: YP-U1, YP-U2, YP-U3,
YP-U4, YP-U5, and YP-S2.
The following Samsung MP3 players support both MTP and UMS mode: YP-Z5
and YP-P3.
Windows Vista may fail to detect you device if the player is not
connected properly, Windows Media Player is not installed or has become
corrupted, Vista is unable to install the MTP drivers, or the MTP patch
is not installed.
You can check it out further by going to this website and entering the information about your player
