Re: deleting songs

I had a similar problem with my mp3 player because i had put songs on it from a different computer. i had to go back to that other computer and sync it up to media player to be able to see the files and remove them.

There are old audiofiles that I can't delete from my MPaxx Series 9 MP3 player. They don't show up on the computer screen, but they can be heard when listening to the MPaxx 900 series MP3 player.

Hi mike davi936...
Try deleting your songs that you do not want this way.
Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio Books, Apps,etc. from MP3 Player/Ipod
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release,right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Am unable delete song...they do not show up on my computer either

I have a dffierent mp3 player Colby with a usb and I had the same problem. Try deleting the songs from the device itself. If you go into folder view if you havet hat option and choose the song it says to play or delet, at least that is what mine says. It may take awhile to do it one song at a time, but you should have the option of deleting the songs from the actual mp3 player.

I also had minenot show up, mine was do to deleting some of the software off of the player to make more room for songs. I never used podcasts and other files that came on it, so after I deleted them my songs stopped showing up. I just copy the songs to my mp3 player now, and delete them one by one. Hope this helps you.
