    Everytime I try to delete a song from my device I get an error message stating that windows cannot delete the files from my device. I went to Windows help and it said to try to disconnect the device and reconnect it but that didn't work. It also said to try resetting the device, but I havn't been able to figure out how to do that.

Cant put songs on mp3 anymore

how did you delete them?
did you delete them instantly from the file page or through the program they probably gave you with your mp3?

Also, if you removed your mp3 without clicking the "safely remove hardware" button before disconnected your mp3 with the computer, than it may have caused confussion with your hardware.

i had this same problem on my sons e250. after much hair pulling i figured out that if the mp3 you have on the e250 doesnt have any ID3 tags and only a windows file name they wont show up on the e250. A real pain. Had to go through and retag all the songs that didnt have ID3 tags. After I had done that all worked.
