Question about Global Marketing Partners V3-8B512G (512 MB) MP3 Player
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?
