Samsung YP-U2J and Windows 2000 —

This mp3 player is old. Dunno where it surfaced from, but I got it. Doesn’t work in 2000 because it uses MTP mode rather than register as a USB Storage Device. You can replace the firmware. After enough googling to realize the better way is to get a USB firmware, vs trying to get MTP […]
