Samsung Media Studio

You can add individual music files or the whole folder to the music library. This software do not use the term playlist which is normally used by Apple and Creative. The term it use is My Album but it functions the same way a playlist do. In addition, you can add the music in the libary to a theme which also functions like a playlist. You can burn your music to a CD using this software and do not have to use 3 party software like Nero. It also allows you to add pictures to your Samsung YP-K3 but the quality of the photos is not so good on the player due to the technical limitations.
