driver problems

  nicholasii 15:01 01 Sep 2008

i was recently given a Samsung YP-S3JQB as a gift and have been unable to get my computer to recognise it

there was no driver on the cd it came with and no driver on the samsung website

windows xp hasnt been able to find a suitable driver when it does a search of the internet

im perplexed as to how anyone gets this monstrosity of an mp3 player to work

any advice / tips on how to locate a driver or get my pc to recognise it without a driver would be greatly appreciated

Have you tried another usb port? are the usb ports working?

  nicholasii 15:31 01 Sep 2008

as ive said ive checked the website and they dont offer a driver

just a manual, software and firmware - none of which seem to help

yeah ive tested the usb ports with other devices and they are all working

ive tried to plug the mp3 player into another pc and ive had exactly the same problem

ta for the replies

There is no driver required

Take a read on page 33 of player manual

Connect the USB cable to the USB port on your PC.

USB Connected> appears on the screen display of the player.

Media Studio> will automatically start when the player is connected to your PC.

If the program does not start automatically, double click the <Media Studio> icon

on the desktop.

doing a restart and the going to my computer and see if there is an icon for it there. Click on the icon and c if it installs works or whatever you hearts desire.

If that dont work may be it broke check the usb cable or use another usb cable to c. ta ta then

have you gone to my computer to see if a device is shown there if its usb then it should show up even if it has no driver. if it comes up as a mass stoage device i would suspect the device to have had a fault maybe flashing the firmware will cure this
