Can't Delete Files From Global MP3 Player with Mac OSX

My mp3 player functions as a flash drive; basically, you plug it in via USB 2.0 and it comes up on the desktop of my Powerbook as an unnamed drive. I was able to successfully drag and drop files straight from iTunes to the mp3 player, and everything worked just fine. However, I wanted to later delete those files from the mp3 player so I could add new ones.

I tried dragging and dropping the files to the trash, but even after the images of the files were gone from the mp3 flash drive, the supposedly 500MB drive read that only 4.3 MB were available, as it had read before I deleted the files. I assumed that all I'd done was delete the file images, so I dragged those back into the drive from the trash. I then tried selecting all of them and using the finder drop-down list, but the only option close to "delete" was "move to trash." I tried clicking on that, and again, the file images disappeared, but the drive only showed that it had 4.3MB of space. Both of these times, I tried to drag and drop NEW files from iTunes to the drive after deleting the file images, but the new files wouldn't copy because of the space limit.

Is there something I need to do to fully delete these files from the flash drive (thus bringing my available space back up to 500MB), or is it simply not possible?

When moving an item to the trash, it actually is just in a hidden ".Trash" folder on that disk, so no space is actually freed up. Can you try hooking the drive back up and then emptying the trash?

How to delete from playlist/mic


Hi
Generally speaking, when you connect an mP3 player to a computer via USB then the storage capability usually shows up in file explorer (My Computer) as an extra drive of some description (often "removable drive"). Its a good idea to have My computer open and showing your drives when you plug the USB cable in, because then you will see the USB drive added to the list and recognise a new drive letter.
Having got a drive letter for your mP3 player you can then scroll through the folders and files on the mP3 player just as if it were a drive in the computer, and hence copy, move and delete files as on the computer. Particularly with an mP3 player with relatively limited capacity, this means that you can change the tracks on it regularly from a larger library on the computer.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

I can not get my music to delete could you tell me how to delete the music


Connect the device to your computer via USB. Your computer should bring up the device as an external (or flash) drive. Go in to that drive, find the music and delete the files you don't want.

How do i delete unwanted songs from my mp3 player?


You do this via your computer. Plug the USB connector into GoGear, and into your USB port on your computer. You open the "Virtual Disc" that has been creaated when you installed the CD, (See disc drives in 'My computer')
Hope this helps

Removing music


Plug your mp3 player into the computer using a USB cable. Make sure you only have the one MP3 player plugged in, and no flash drives or cameras, etc.

There may be a button on your MP3 player that sets the mode to MTP or USB or Ready Mode. Make sure the setting is at MTP.

Open My Computer from the start menu. There should be a list of drives and document folders. You should see a drive labeled "removable storage" or "_____-Audio Player", (_____ may be your name or the name of the mp3 player).

Double click that drive. You may now see something to the effect of "SD/MMC Card" and or "Audio Player" or the name of your MP3 Player. You may also see files that say "Music" or even the music files themselves.

Double click on "Audio Player" if you do not have music on your SD/MMC Card (or if you just don't have one in your MP3 player).

If there is no "Audio Player" file, click on "Music" or the next best looking folder (it won't harm your computer or MP3 player if you look in all the folders). This should open up into Music files or a folder labeled Music. Double click this folder. Inside you should see all the music (or videos) that is on the MP3 player. Delete the music folders and files, but be careful not to delete anything else. The folders should be labeled by Artists, then Albums, then finally the actual music files. Delete all the Artists, albums, etc, to remove the music.

If you can't find the music files using my instructions, look in the folders of your MP3 player until you find them. Also, remember to have your MP3 player set to MTP mode if it is available.

Hope this helps.

I need the software for my mp3


You can usually "format" the mp3 player via My Computer. They are mostly flash based memory. Otherwise, you can generally get the cd contents from the manufacturers website.

I cant delete songs off of my mp3 player


did you try going into (if you have a windows pc) My Computer, and navigating to where your player is (your player should be hooked up to your pc via a usb cord - the one that came with your player). your player could be in a removable disk - mine is (J:), or it could be under Other (all of this is still in My Computer). Click on different removable disks if you have to, until you find the one that has your player. Once you have found your player, double click to go inside it. Inside of your player should be a list of folders. One of them should be named Music. It could also have a Playlists folder, an Audible folder, or a Pictures folder, etc. Click on the Music folder. You should see a folder of all of your songs, OR you will see your song files. Select the ones you want to delete, right click and select Delete, or drag the files to your recycle bin. Hope this helps!
