Can't delete songs

I am having trouble deleting songs from my mp3 player. When I connect it it goes to the Best Buy digital music store, and the device shows up in my sources, but none of my playlists or songs show up under it. I have tried going to My Computer and doing it from there, but the only songs I could find in there were the ones that came with the player. Then I tried reformatting it, but I still can't find any of my songs anywhere to delete them. Help please!

Try changing the "mode" on the device. Settings>Mode or USB Mode>MTP or MSC.* *(if you have thr 'R' version, your options will be Rhapsody or Plays for Sure) If you transferred music in one mode, you are not able to see it in the other mode. Best of Luck.

Cant delete from the song list on samsung mp3 S5

Easier to format and state over... If the music is not stored on the computer transfer from the player to your computer Drag and drop is the best way Always format this gets rid of any unwanted mistakes or possible viruses or even boot files which will freeze most players try not to boot your computer with the player connected...........

Deleting files

You have to plug the mp3 player into the computer, double-click My Computer, double click on the icon of the GoGear, and then go into the Music folder - exercise caution: only delete music files - if you delete files that are non-music files, you will effectively destroy your GoGear.

Windows Media Player is more complex, but it is a safer way to delete songs:

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 insignia NS-2v17b MP3 player will only play 3 songs. The other 56 songs downloaded on it are skipped. While trying to go between songs the MP3 player will beep several times. I counted and it beeps for...

Yes. You have to have an active account to keep listening to those songs. On another note (no pun intended) anything that you OWN in your music files will play for you.
I quit the subscription from Best Buy, deleted the songs I didn't own and now I am satisfied.

Will not hold the music I download

My problem was that I was deleting the existing library list in my computer when I attempted to add more songs to the MP3 player. I thought since I had already downloaded them to the MP3 player, that I could get rid of them from my PC's Media Player's library. The new songs I tried to add, would override the old songs stored in the MP3 player. Apparently you have to continue to store all the songs in your PC's library, and then when you add more songs you can transfer only the new ones to your MP3 player. A guy at my work told me this.
