So I recently switched to a MacBook Pro and love it! Except for the fact that it doesn’t seem to be compatible with my Samsung YP-S3 mp3 player. I had no issues with my mp3 player and my old PC, I connected the player using the included USB cord, used Windows Media player to sync my music from the computer to player (the software the player came with to do the job was junk), and it worked fine.
However when I plug the player into my mac with the USB the player lights up and charges just fine, but according to the computer there’s just nothing there at all. iTunes doesn’t show any device connected, and the player doesn’t show up in the Finder menu. I have already checked in the Preferences menu in Finder and the “show Cds, DVDs and iPods” box is checked.
There’s nothing at all in the players instruction manual about connecting to a mac, it just refers to PCs. I’ve lost the included installation CD, so unfortunately I can’t try to install it on my mac, however as I remember it just contained the junk music sorting program I never used on my PC.
I’m running Mac OS X 10.6.2.
Is there some program or app that will allow my mac to “see” this player? Please help! I’ve been listening to the same music for sooo long!
Thank you! :)
