Re: Deleting music

It shouldn't make any difference.  The device should show up as any other attached storage device and you should be able to delete files or drag files to it as you would to a flash drive.

It's actually kinda trivial but I've been given an old mp3player from a friend who upgraded. The thing is our taste in music is drastically different, so what I want to do is delete all of the music...

To delete the music files off the MP3 player, connect the supplied USB cable to the P3 player and then plug it into the USB port in your computer. The computer will detect the MP3 player as an external storage device. You can open the music folder and select and delete the music files just like deleting unwanted files off your hard disk.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

How do i clear music to add new music

Connect the MP3 player to your computer using the USB cable.
The computer will see this as an external drive or removable disk.
Click on this MP3 device and open the folder where the MP3 music files are located, then click to highlight the music files you want to delete and then press the DEL (delete) key to remove them from the MP3 player. This is the same procedure in deleting files from your computer's hard disk.

To add new music files to your MP3 player, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Having problem syncrinizing music to mp3 player

if u used window media player its will mess up your mp3 by duplicating songs and not leting u play songs. What i do is connect it to the computer and it should pop up. DONT open window media player. Open the files and add your music by dragging them into your mp3 from another folder. This only works if you have a different folder of music. It should work. If all your music is in Widows media player it wont work. Also try deleting all your music from ur mp3 but copy your musice onto your computer first. Good luck i hope i helped.

Deleting playlist

Nextar MA933A – Deleting Playlists
There are a couple of different ways to approach this problem.
You could 1. connect the Nextar to your computer
2. Double-click My Computer
3. Double-click the icon that corresponds to the Nextar – this is going to be different for every computer – some will have an actual Nextar icon, some will display it as USB Mass Storage Device, and others will list it as a Removable Drive – if it is listed as a Removable Drive, you can find the right one by double-clicking each removable drive until it gives you a new window with folders labeled Music, etc.
4. Enter the Music folder and Delete the folder that corresponds to the playlist that you want to delete

If that set of methods fails, or your mp3 player does not allow you to view the contents of the drive:
1. Go to the MSC menu
2. Press MENU button
3. When you see a song displayed in the LCD, press the Play key to pause the song
4. Once song is paused, press the MENU button
5. Select “Delete File,” and select the songs you want to delete
6. Use the Menu left/right keys to toggle between “Yes” delete and “No” don’t delete

Delete music

Hey pepsigr1629,

According to the manufacturer, there are two different ways to remove music files from this model MP3 player. The first method deletes the files directly from the MP3 player itself, and can be done while the player is in playback mode. You'll want to press the "Submenu" button and select "Delete" when individual songs are being played.

Alternatively, you can do it from your home computer by connecting the player to the computer, selecting "Open device to view files using Windows Explorer" when the initial connection is made, locating the folder where your files are stored, then highlighting and deleting the files.

Hope this helps you out.

How do you delete music off mp3 player to put other music on?

Most players will not allow you to delete from the player itself - you will have to go into Windows Media Player on your computer (with the Mp3 player plugged into the computer, of course) and delte from there. I do not have your model # or manufacturer name, so this is generic advice. some Mp3 players use software other than Windows Media Player for deleting songs. It's best to check your user's manual.

you may have to reformat the MP3 player by clicking on the drive its listed under and right click and go to Format. Formatting is done with FAT, not NTFS. This will remove any games or other data on it too. Sometimes the reset thing might work. In general, anything you erase from it using a computer should erase off the MP3 player too.

I cant even delete my music or put new music on...

Instead of deleting the songs you may need to format.

If you haven't tryed this follow these simple steps.

To format your device first click on "Start" then click on "My Computer" now look for your mp3 player, if it hasn't been change the names usually called "Removable Disk", once you've found that right-click on it then click on "Format".

Now you've formatted put songs on then try your mp3 player to see if the problems be fixed.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.
