i need to remove the virus on my music player. i cant transfer or even delete the music files in it...i have tried anti viruses but it keeps coming back... and i can't show the hidden files on it.... help!

Install Ubuntu, a linux operating system, onto your computer or borrow someones that has it. You can then successfully see all hidden files and safely clean all the malicious software off of it. And there is no need to worry about infecting the linux computer as malicious software written for windows will not run or have any effect on a linux computer. Good Luck :)
