The Great Story of the Samsung MP3 players (in french though...)
 
Hi,
I wrote the story of the Samsung mp3 players from 1999 to nowadays.
Unfortunately it is in french, but if you have some french skills or if you like google translations (:D ) maybe you could be interested in.
Anyway there are pictures of every Samsung mp3 player and I'm sure there are some of them you never saw before;)

Don't ask me to make the same in english, I would need several lifes as it is not my mother tongue :D

edit:
Original links are dead, here are new links:

I did a similar thing on the front page here last year with the 10 year anniversary. Never again. This kind of article takes forever! Great work!

Yeah! I know.
As I was looking for information about the YP-D40 (Creative Nomad) on google, I found your article:
(here it is: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archi...mp3-player.php )
And I told myself: Ok right, I'm not the single crazy guy, just do it man! :D

The B series embarks 24MB of memory and a docking station for PC.




Lebellium, what series/model is that? YP-B...?

Well that was the very beginning of the yepp story. In 1999 internet was not developped and digital cameras did not exist so it is very very difficult to find information about that period. I'm sure YP-E and YP-D have been released but as I found no information and pictures of the B series I suppose it has been announced but never released. ;)

I've found a new one today :D

Its name is YP-Z32 and it's very rare
https://www.emarkaz.com/shop/img4/849large.gif
It has been released in 1999/2000 in 2 versions probably: one with 32Mb embedded memory (extensible up to 64Mb) with a serial port and another with 64Mb memory and USB 1.1 connection.
Here is the use manual: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/...7437_YP-Z32.pdf

Description by a website that sold it at the time:
Wearable & pendant Style
Samsung's tiny, wearable Mini yepp is the world's smallest full-featured digital player, weighing in at a mere 1.13 ounces without battery. It comes with 64 MB of built-in flash memory and features an LCD display that shows music info and current date and time.
The Mini-Yepp has superb sound with a four-preset graphic equalizer and a powerful bass boost system that can enhance any musical style. The Mini-Yepp also features an advanced USB port for high-speed transfer of your favorite music. USB connections are three to five times faster than those using the parallel port, and they allow compatibility with both the Apple Macintosh and PCs running Windows 98, 2000, or Me.
The popular Rio-Port digital music software is bundled with the Mini-Yepp, offering a powerful yet easy-to-use system to organize your entire music collection and quickly transfer custom track combinations. The software is also CDDB-enabled, automatically retrieving artist and track information for millions of CDs (when connected to the Internet).

Brilliant article - must have taken you hours! I recently bought the YH-920 dock :- "To finish the year, Samsung made its fruitful partnership with the launch of Napster YH-920, a 20GB HDD player with FM tuner, voice recorder, line-in and comes with many accessories such as a dock, a cover, remote control, a charger ..." The connection fits my P3 but I am hesitant of utilising the charger as it is for a different model. Useful though, as Samsung don''t seem to believe in docks any more.

5V, 1000mA, should work with the P3 ;)
I had never noticed the connection on the YH-920 and the P3 are the same although I have a YH-820 :D
