Hi everybody :thumbsup:

Well, I'm having a little problem with using my MP3 Player in Windows ME.
I can plug it in, it lights up and charges.
But Windows explorer can't detect it.
The player is an MTP device, and (to my understanding) Windows ME doesn't support mtp devices.

Is their any type of work around for this? Because I'd really like to add some new songs to it.
I tried downloading Samsung media studio... No luck.
I tried this and still no luck.

Edit: also, if any Windows 98 users have a solution they are most welcome to recommend it, because it will probably work with ME.

C'mon, I know there has to be some work around for this. I just haven't found it.
Somebody help, please.

Thank you :flowers:

I have a Samsung mobile phone with built in mp3 player. When I attach it with a windows 98SE computer through USB, it is detected as MTP device but I cannot access any folders.

In windows ME it is detected as an MTP device and I can access all files on it. WinAmp can manage it as an MP3 player. I can copy and delete files from it.

In Windows 2000,XP I can open it in all possible ways.

The MP3 player you have mentioned, is only supported on Windows2000/XP/Vista officially.

Hi Romeo :thumbsup:

I managed to get it to work :D
The link I provided in my original post had all the files I needed, I just wasn't very sure on what to do with them.

For those of you, who do need an MTP device to work in Windows 98/98SE/ME, heres what you need to do.

Visit this page from Google Groups and follow the steps (its not in English so I'll post the steps for you)
Make sure you have DirectX9, if you don't you can download it from ]here
Then you need to make sure you have Windows Media Player 9, if not get it here

After you've done this download this file to your desktop. Open it with either WinZIP or WinRAR.
Extract MTP9x-2k.exe to your desktop, run the file. DO NOT REBOOT YET!
Now make sure you can see hidden files and folders. To do this navigate to Start Menu > Settings > control panel > select the "view" tab and click the bubble that says "Show Hidden files and Folders"
Now extract wpdmtp_yp-u3.inf to C:\WINDOWS\INF
Restart your computer.

Next, plug in your MTP Device and open up device manager (Right Click "My Computer" > Properties> Device Manager). Your device will most probably be listed under "Other Devices" and have a yellow question mark next to it.
Right Click your device. Select properties, then select Reinstall Driver
Select the second option. It will ask you to specify where the driver is. It is located in C:\WINDOWS\INF.
Follow the prompts and in minutes you will be able to use your MTP Device.

Note: The device will not show in Windows Explorer so you will have to manage your MTP device either using Windows Media Player or Media software provided by the manufacturer of your device.

I have tried using the MTP9x-2k.exe file in Windows XP but it doesn't work in it. This file is meant for Win 98, Win ME and Win 2000. I also have another problem with my Win XP. It only accepts digitally signed drivers. Please let me know if there is any way of installing non-digitally signed drivers in Win XP that can work perfectly fine. The driver that was supplied with my Samsung YP-T10j CD is not digitally signed so it is not accepted by my Win XP. Also I would like to know if there is any alternate file that can be used in place of MTP9x-2k.exe for Win XP users who are having driver signing problems. I will be much thankfull because I really want to tranfer files to mp3 player from my pc. Thanks! :thumbsup:

There is also following .inf file that can be used by Windows 2000 users, as suggested by Wikipedia. You only need notepad to copy and paste the following code and name the file wpdmtp_samsungt10.inf. Then insert it in C:\WINNT\inf folder:

; wpdmtp_test.inf
; Media Service Provider driver package for USB-MTP devices.
; Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP
; Copyright 2005, Microsoft Corporation

; ==================== Version section ======================

DriverVer = 03/11/2005,

; ==================== Class sections =======================


; ================= Manufacturer & Models sections ==========



; Vendor needs to supply the VID (xxxx) and PID (yyyy)
%Test.DeviceDesc% = Test_MTP, USB\VID_xxxx&PID_yyyy

; ================ Win9x Device Install sections ============

Include = wpdmtp.inf
Needs = WPD.MTP.SW.Registration.9x

Include = wpdmtp.inf
Needs = WPD.MTP.Registration.9x
; Uncomment the following line for a MTP device that does not support PDDRM
; AddReg = MTP.HW.LocalRegistration

; ================= WinNT Device Install sections ===========


Include = wpdmtp.inf
Needs = WPD.MTP.Registration
; Uncomment the following line for a MTP device that does not support PDDRM
; AddReg = MTP.HW.LocalRegistration

Include = wpdmtp.inf
Needs = WPD.MTP.Services

; ================= Device specific registration ============

; Create and set this flag to supress queryiug device's storage serial number.
; This is only needed for a MTP device that does not support PDDRM.
; This flag is set if its value is not 0.

; ================= String macro section ====================


; =========== Localizable macro substitutions ===============

Test.DeviceDesc = "MTP Device Under Test"
MfgName = "(MTP Devices Under Test)"
Provider = "Microsoft"

wpdmtp_samsungt10.inf is still not useful for me because the MTP9x-2k.exe file is not working in Win XP. Please suggest some suitable solution. Teenage.Zombiee if you know something please let me know :flowers:

I have used the MTP9x-2k.exe file in Windows 98 but it does not recognize the driver 'wpdmtp_yp-u3.inf' provided with it in the zip file. There is still a yellow question mark along with my device inside the device manager. Please tell me what to do. I really want my Samsung YP-T10j to work. Any suggestions and advices are welcome. Thanks !
