First, diasble the auto-sync feature in Windows Media Player - there is a great explanation on how to do this on Microsoft's own website, so I'm not going to rehash it.

Second, delete every song off your player. You can even run a Repair in Philips Device Manager if it will let you, because that will have the side effect of starting your player from scratch.

Third, reload only songs that are in mp3 format or DRM-free WMA (preferably Mp3).

Fourth, since you asked how to delete songs, here is my answer:
To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

7. Press the “Delete” button on your computer’s keyboard

MY MP3 PLAYER WONT RESET FOR SOME REASON


are you sure you deleted all the songs?I suggest you connect to your pc again ,open the folder where your music is and just try deleting one song.now disconnect and see if the song is still there , actually on the player.It's possible you disconnected before the pc had time to delete everything or that you deleted the files from your pc not the player.Did you get the usual message asking you if you're sure you wanted to delete and did it then show you a progress bar?

Deleting


Though you may not be able to delete specific songs, it might be a good idea to just format the entire mp3 player then put all the songs you have back in, considering that syncing songs do not take a long time.

Cant deleat songs


Re format the player. It thinks that you deleted parts of the other songs. They do this from time to time. Go under Pearl options, and select format. It will delete all current songs, but when you load the new ones, they will play better.
