Erasing songs

Have you tried formatting the player as if it were a drive?
Hit the windows start button at lower left of screen, then my computer. The Pearl should show up as a drive , would maybe look something like the following: Pearl:F or RCA:H. Right click with mouse and format drive/player should be an option. That should do the trick. However, you may want to consult your manual for formatting instructions as this can sometimes corrupt the player if not formatted correctly.

The files are corrupt

Was the player disconnected before disabling it correctly? In the bottom right in the system tray the usb icon with a green arrow is able to be right clicked and select "Safely Remove Hardware" to safely remove most players. I personally got frustrated, forgot to do this and removed my Pearl hastily. After that it has yet to function properly. The system is corrupted and no files register even though there are still 967 mb worth of music on the player.
So this is not a solution but rather a probable cause to the problem. I have yet to find a fix for this except to dispose of the player responsibly and purchase a new one.

I acidentally plugged my pearl while my husband was still logged in and it erased all my songs

There are two possibilities - corrupt DB or songs in wrong format.
If it is a corrupt DB, then go to RCA's website for the latest firmware upgrade.
Make sure the songs are in the correct format. Make sure the songs are not AAC, WAV, streaming, or some other non-supported format
Mp3 players are more complicated than ever. This player may only accept DRM-encrypted WMA files. I would first check the songs that you have downloaded to make sure they did not have "temporary" licenses with a fixed end date. You can do this by right clicking on an individual song, clicking on properties, and selecting the "license," "digital rights mgmt" or "media usage rights" tab - the wording varies by configuration. It will give you info on the license. If the song says that it has no license, it will not work with this player. One remedy is to use mp3 converter software to convert all of those wma files to Mp3's - I don't know of any free ones, but you can certainly look for free Mp3 Converters. Another remedy on unlicensed songs is to hit the "acquire license" link in the license tab, if one exists.
