Noticed the default screensaver plays a nice tune when activated and I was wondering whether I could edit/create a screensaver with music of my own rather than the Samsung music?
I doubt this is very easy to do. I suggest searching the web as there may be specific programs/freeware that can help you make your own screensaver.
Having said that – a screensaver serves no useful purpose these days on TFT/LCD screens.

I almost agree with you on that, especially with regards to the NC10.
However some LCD displays suffer from image persistence which looks just like a burnt in CRT but isn’t permanent. This is very noticeable on two of my displays, though I choose to just set the screens to turn off rather than use a screensaver.
Additionally screensavers can be useful if you want to display certain information, an example is that I used to use a screensaver linked to an RSS feed to display the latest news.
I rather like the music too. (Mind you, the little zing that occurs occasionally – a sort of sparkly sound – has me looking round the house to see where it’s come from!)
Has anyone figured out whether it’s a loop of music, or some sort of random algorithm? Obviously it’s not completely random – it’s in a certain style, and certain phrases recur.
A Windows screensaver is just a program renamed to .scr instead of .exe. You could make Notepad your screensaver if you wanted, but it wouldn’t be a very good one because it doesn’t know how to react to the things screensavers are supposed to handle. :)
There’s plenty of screensavers out there that do stuff like show pictures and play sounds, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding one.
Because a screensaver is just like any other program, you can open it up with a resource viewer like PE Explorer or ASMEX (in case it’s a .NET app) and see if there’s a sound file embedded inside. (I’m assuming you’ve already checked the options to see if it lets you pick the sound file it uses.)
Hope this helps.
