Default Samsung Tools (Windows Program) for Samsung PMPs

Background:

Samsung Tools is a program Written for my Visual Basic Class at school; with mainly the support of the P2 and P3. Creating this program has been very educational for me, but because I am the only one who has worked on it I am still ironing out lots of bugs so the release should be within the next month.

The Program:

Samsung Tools was created to see how much, function wise, I could get to Emodio, without being as buggy. The program was written in Visual Basic 2010, which goes to show that vb is a valid programming language. The only downside I had to using vb is that it is impossible to detect an MTP player; this program is based around UMS support (far superior in my mind). It is designed to save to the player if it is connected, or prompt a save dialog when it is not.

Features:

Datacasts
Playlist Creator (.SPL)
Calendar Event Creator
Contact File Creator
Basic ID3 Tag Editing
Firmware region Changer
My Device Info (displays device’s firmware version and checks if it is latest)
P3 Tic-Tac Toe

I am planning 2 major releases and maybe 1 bug fix (Not SET IN STONE!).

Hey,
That's a good initiative thank you
I own almost every Samsung DAP so I'll be able to tell you which one has a SYSTEM.ver file (most of them if I remember well)

@Lebellium Thanks!

My program's firmware version checking is based off of the program reading a file with the player and version.

Example

Samsung Tools Firmware Data File
P2 5.10
P3 2.22
R1 3.07
R0 1.25
Q3 1.34
M1 1.35

Would you happen to know if all the SYSTEM.ver files use this Format:
VER 2.22 EU MTP
MODEL P3
DRM JA

with the xx s varying for each player
VER x.xx EU MTP
MODEL XX
DRM JA

More or less but not exactly as you can see below. Morover, the region code may differ. People may also use FR, US or KR region code instead of EU and that can change the PC connection mode (MTP/UMS) at the same time.
You program must not be case sensitive because sometimes it's System.ver, sometimes SYSTEM.VER etc

Q3 (latest firmware is not 1.34, I forgot to update the All Samsung Firmwares thread, sorry )
VER 1.37 EU MTP
MODEL Q3
DRM JA

R0:
VER 1.25 EU
MODEL YP-R0
DRM JA.NE

U6:
VER 1.09 EU
MODEL YP-U6
DRM PD JA NE

Q2:
VER 1.23 EU
MODEL YP-Q2
FWUP OK
DRM JA.NE.PD

R1:
VER 3.07 EU 00
MODEL YP-R1
DRM JA.NE

U5:
VER 1.57 EU
MODEL YP-U5
DRM PD JA NE

S1:
VER 1.15 KR
MODEL TicToc
DRM PD NE

CP3:
VER 2.10 EU UMS
MODEL YP-CP3
DRM 0

P3:
VER 2.22 EU MTP
MODEL P3
DRM JA

Weather? What does it do on the device exactly?

And for what country is it? (there are the same zip codes in several countries)

Quick question. What is tic tac toe? I know the game of 9 box, but we dont have that game in the P3... is that a flash? or a real game that u can play in?
Thank you for the .spl creator, LESS stressful, compared to the web version.
I havent tried out the program out yet, just a little bit skeptic about it. Like what's the benefits of the calendar? (For instance, birthdays, can i see who's birthday on the screen or do i have to click on the widget to see the information?)
What is MydeviceInfo? (What's the benefit of putting your serial in ur p3? I have serial on the back of my P3. Just not too sure...)
ContactInfo, very good.
The FW region changer, what's so good about that? (I have the KR one, and does that limits me get some other programs?)
thank you again for creating this program.
Thank you again for reading.

@ Lebellium Thanks for your input
Quote:
If you could add a M3U to SPL converter that would be very great
^ There technically is it is, not direct M3U To SPL; you have import the file addresses from the M3U and then save it as a SPL (Look on the FILE Menu, there is a import from M3U option)
Quote:
-Playlists work (you should add flac format to the extensions list so that people are not obliged to select "all files" instead)
^ How did I Forget about FLAC!

In Regards to the FW Update Conundrum:
Quote:
Obviously the file will be outdated every 2 weeks (there are already the new F3, Z3 and R2, new fw for Q3 will be released soon etc.
^ With the SFV files i was hoping that someone would start making them with the right FW Versions and uploading them so all the users could get updates; i can't keep up to date with all the Samsung Products. Even more so now that my P3 is completly unusable.

Quote:
If would be better if your software checked the fw version online (for example a Samsung_Tools_Firmware Data.sfv file on a FTP server that you or me could update regularly).
^ I'm Exploring Options...

^ It's time for a good old Google search or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tic-tac-toe

Quote:
What is MydeviceInfo?
^ Exactly what it says; Info about your Device. You can also save your Serial Number in program for Refrence (Service Calls to Samsung, etc.)
Quote:
(What's the benefit of putting your serial in ur p3? I have serial on the back of my P3. Just not too sure...)
^ You don't put Serial in your P3, the milk is probably not good for the mainboard...

Thank you again for reading.
^Your Welcome

Oh indeed I still did not see this "file" button. Actually it's not clear that we can click on "file" to see more options
Maybe you should add a border?

Try the tool. That's the best way to understand what Tic Tac Toe is.

^ VB won't let me do a border; So, How about a German Folder Icon Yes, The Icon is German

Version 3.00 is out

With
- More efficient code
- FW Version Info Internet Update
- Settings Export/Restore for Version 2 Files
- GUI Tweaks

http://www.sites.google.com/site/samsungtools/

I would Like to enhance the program for those new players Samsung Just Added R2, Z3 etc. And the Galaxy Players (I don't know if any the utilities are applicable)

Basically I Need to know if they have System.ver Files in the SYSTEM directory and what formatting the files use

If you are upgrading from 2.0:
1. Export a Settings File
2. Unninstall program
3. Download and Install 3.0
4. Restore The Setting File, and your done

Note: Once again please, please tell me about any bugs
