DDK files for Samsung MP3 YP-U3 player

  revmobile 15:10 04 Apr 2008

Newly purchased Samsung mp3 yp-u3 player. I installed software but there is no icon to transfer files from pc to player. It is possible that I need a ddk file? My PC is an XP Home edition.

This is the message on a separate file which seems relevent.

In order to build this codec, you need the Windows98 DDK from Microsoft. It can also work
with the Windows2000/ME/XP/2003 DDK:

Alternatively, the required headers are also available in CYGWIN+w32api, MINGW32 or Wine :

If you do not have a ddk, you should be able to use the alternative msacmdrv.h provided
with this ACM codec. It is not used by default because it would probably broke any real
DDK already installed.


Define ENABLE_DECODING if you want to use the decoding (alpha state, doesn't decode at the
moment, so use it only if you plan to develop)

To release this codec you will need :
- lameACM.acm (result of the build process)
- lameACM.inf
- lame_acm.xml (where the initial configuration is stored)

This is too technical for me and I would be most grateful if some could give me a little help.

This seems more like encoding software. If its just transferring files from your PC to the Samsung then as you have XP it should work just by plugging the device in to a USB port and opening My Computer and looking for a Removable disk.

I think you are right. Although I have now downloaded updated software from Samsung and windows media player v11 and Directx version 9, I still cannot get the software to see the MP3 on the USB. The facilities for doing so are now on the software.

Have you any further ideas?

Many thanks

An extract from the Samsung web site

"Best of all the YP-U3 is a Play-For-Sure device - there's no need to worry about using confusing proprietary software – just plug the device in and let Windows Media Player do the rest"

Try uninstalling all the software drivers ETC you have installed then unplug the device and use system restore back to a date before you got this device

then start over

Help greatly appreciated

Try this first. Plug in the Samsung using USB and go Start > Control Panel > Add Hardware. Follow the wizard through to the end.

Tried to follow the wizard thru but it wouldn't read the samsung installation disk in the drive

The saga continues

Thats the point. You do not need the Samsung installation disk. All the files you require are already on your hard drive. You just need to search for them via Start > Search
