Deleted songs are still there!


I agree with profalwg, use Windows Explorer. When you connect the player's USB cable to the computer, a window should open...click on the option to open with Windows Explorer. If you delete files and they still don't go away (happens sometimes) go into the player's Setup menu & change the USB setting to MSC. Doing this corrects 99% of player recognition problems. Hope this helps!

Deleting files from Hard Drive but to keep on my Sony WAlkman


Hi.
When you have connected your hard drive you were playing in your Windows Media Player? When you were ask that the media will syncronize the hd drive you have connected you choose the option yes. meaning every time you delete files or shared files from your WMP it automatically delete all files you shared. When are going to add files to your WMP select File option then select add folders or files from your walkman. After doing so, your files will be added only when your walkman is connected. If not it will not be read by the system.

Files will not added to the system volume but its only shared. if the one that is being shared is not present in the system it will not be accessed.

Regardless of Model the PC wil recognized it if it was supported by the system. If you dont want these files added in your system every time you need to play those files you have to connect your external hard drive.

I hope you were answered. Please reply for any clarification or comments.

My sandisk mp3 player will not delte music


You probably noticed that the directions for deleting in the manual simply don't work, the option isn't there. There are still a couple ways to do it.

Connect the player to your computer, navigate to the device and select the files you wish to delete, then press delete. Somewhat time consuming if you have a lot of files.

Another way is use Windows Media Player to sync the device. Load your library with the files you want on your player, then sync. WMP will delete all files on the player now, and put only the files you have selected on the player.

Deleting Videos


WMP doesn't recognize the players video file system, or your computer does not have the right codecs for WMP to recognize that file type

Delete from windows explorer instead - but be careful to only delete the videos, and not the system files/folders that control video for this player
