Try this and see if you can delete the virus this way:
Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio Books, etc. from MP3 Player
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer" When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there. Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible. Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete" Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.

I dont know how to download music to my nextar mp3 player.


Plug the MP3 player into the computer with a USB cable. The MP3 player should then be automatically detected by your computer and show up as a device (external drive or folder) on your computer.
You must then open this external file (MP3 player) by either double clicking or right clicking with your mouse. Then drag the MP3 file or files from your computer to the MP3 player.

1. Plug one end of the USB cable to the USB port on your MP player.
2. Plug the other end of the USB cable to an empty port on your computer. The computer will automatically recognize it.
3. Double-click "My Computer" on your desktop. Your player will be listed as a hard drive on the new window.

Install Works 9 from CD? How? Microsoft Works9


Insert the cd into the cd drive, the setup should come up automatically, if it doesnt come up then open my computer, double click on the cd drive, if the setup still doesn't come up, right click on the drive and click on open, if it didn't open automatically. Then look for the setup file and double click on it to start the setup.

if it still doesn't install try the cd on another computer to confirm if the cd is working. if it works on another computer then the issue is with your cd/dvd drive, if it doesn't work on other computers aswell then the cd is the problem.

Transfer from usb to micro sd


This mp3 player does not appear to have SD card support. In general terms, however, if you plugged a USB flash drive into one USB port of your computer, and then plugged an SD card into the SD card slot on your computer, you can then double-click "My Computer," and then double-click on "Removable Drive F" or whatever your computer is calling the USB flash drive. Then, open a second instance of "My Computer," double-click on the SD Card logo, and then drag files from the USB flash window, or to the SD card window as appropriate.

Another way to do this without opening a second instance of "My Computer," would be to open up the icon for the USB flash drive, right-click on the first file that you want to transfer, and then select "Explore." The window will then change - you will see the file or files you want to transfer on the right, and all available drives (including the SD card icon) on the left. Drag and drop from there.

Good luck!

MP3 PLAYER WONT PLAY OR DOWNLOAD,BUT IT DOES DISPLAY READY SIGN


That's an australian player. A bit outmoded. You can plug into computer, double-click My Computer, right click the Technika (may list as a generic drive letter instead), and then open the music folder. Then find the folder where the songs are stored on your computer. Drag and drop from one folder to another. It's a real headache, are you sure you want to do this?
