My device shows that I have a certain amount of songs but only plays half of them. When I try to delete them on the given software, only the songs that do play show up. So I can never delete the songs that don't play.

If your machine, using a multimedia application, it stops suddenly to play a CERTAIN song ["it stops playing certain song after a few seconds"] that means the file [the song, I mean] is broken/damaged/corrupted. So - using other words - cannot be read by the application itself. All you need to do is to get another file [the same song but from a DIFFERENT SOURCE] hoping the new file will be in good condition.
My best regards! ... and don't forget to RATE, please...
My Lyra does the exact same thing...what i do is i pull the batteries out for a second and the unfreezes the device...then i delete the song that froze my device....then i reload the song..if it freezes again delete that song from ur computer them find a better music provider because most likely the song was corruped
Often this is indicative that the "filing system" and the "table of contents" of the digital media player is being messed up. Technically, this would refer to corrupted files. In most instances, this could be corrected by formatting the player. This of course would mean that a fresh "filing system" and "table of contents" would be written on the device. But then, this also means that all its contents would be erased.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
I would delete and start all over again. It is certainly a pain, but it is the best way. The quickest way to delete all the songs is to format the player inside Windows Media Player itself (I have a tips and tricks entry on formatting an mp3 player for instructions).
Make sure the songs are in the correct format. Make sure the songs are not AAC, WAV, streaming, or some other non-supported format
Mp3 players are more complicated than ever. This player may only accept DRM-encrypted WMA files. I would first check the songs that you have downloaded to make sure they did not have "temporary" licenses with a fixed end date. You can do this by right clicking on an individual song, clicking on properties, and selecting the "license," "digital rights mgmt" or "media usage rights" tab - the wording varies by configuration. It will give you info on the license. If the song says that it has no license, it will not work with this player. One remedy is to use mp3 converter software to convert all of those wma files to Mp3's - I don't know of any free ones, but you can certainly look for free Mp3 Converters. Another remedy on unlicensed songs is to hit the "acquire license" link in the license tab, if one exists.

when you synch your device to windows media player 11 on the side bar under the name of your device says songs click on it then find the songs you don't want right click and delete as for the songs that won't play i'd say it's probably because it doesn't support the format of the music
