It seems that the storage portion of your MP3 player is already corrupted. If the device is still under the warranty, take advantage of it and contact the manufacturer for memory card replacement.

The memory card (storage) should be replaced and NOT reformat. There could be bad sectors and it cannot be fixed by reformatting only.

Have a great day!

How to delete music from samsung 2014 edition tablet


If these are on the device and not a SD card & it works like a traditional Android device, you probably have two options; you can use a file manager app, go to the directory and manually delete them right from there. You can also plug the device into your computer, go to the directory where the music is (my non-samsung device has a folder labeled 'Music'), remove them that way and even add other music. I dont know if Samsung still wants you to use their program called Kies; their version of a iTunes like file manager; it may have the drivers you need for your computer to recognize the tablet, you can download it from their site usually, but on my older Samsung device, once my computer had the drivers it needed,s I just used my computers file manager to add and remove media.

If you have put these on a SD card, just shut off the device, remove the card, and put in a card reader attached to your computer and move things around at will.

How do i delete music from my motorola ce01868 mod xt907...i can't find a solution anywhere....help please


Delete files using your computer:
  1. Connect your device to a computer using a data cable. (It is recommended to connect directly to the computer, not through a hub). If your device is not being recognized by your computer, you may need to update your computer's USB drivers HERE.

    Note: microSD Card Slot not active. A future software upgrade will enable this device support up to microSD cards up to 32GB.
  2. Use your computer interface to delete files stored on your device.
(Windows)
  • Open Computer or My Computer
  • Your device should appear
    under Portable Devices (If your device is not being recognized you may need to update your drivers) Click here
  • Select your device and select Device Storage.
  • For photos & videos select
    DCIM > Camera
  • For Music select Music or any other folder which contains music files
  • For any other files you wish to transfer, select the folder which contains the files to move to your computer.
  • Note: You can organize, rename and delete folders from your windows machine while the device is connected
(Apple/Mac OS X)
Download and install the Android File Transfer app from www.android.com/ filetransfer, then connect your Motorola XOOM using USB. The app will then allow you to
access and transfer media back and forth.


Delete files using third party application:
While we do not endorse or guarantee these solutions, or provide support for them, some owners have reported success using a 3rd party Android Application like "Astro file manager". You can search the Android Market for 3rd party applications that are available that will enable you to view and delete files from your Motorola XOOM.
To delete files using Astro,
  1. Launch Astro from the apps menu
  2. Navigate to the file you wish to delete
  3. Long press the file that you want to delete and touch "Edit" from the popup menu
  4. Touch "Delete" from the 2nd popup

Deleting music from player


You can't delete anything from the player, it needs to be plugged into the computer. If you have it plugged in use the management software is has a music manager that shows what is on the player and has a add/remove songs button. If you're not using the software your computer may recognize the player as a new storage device in which case you should be able to view the files and exercise the delete key.

I had this same problem. What I ended up doing was going into My Computer into the device itself and seeing what showed up. It appears a few new songs I popped on there the day after were appearing but nothing else. I deleted all the files, unplugged it from the computer and let the library update, old songs were still playing. Plugged it back into the machine and voila they showed up.

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

Sansa 4Gb Wont let me add or delete songs anymore!


If the PC does not recognize the player, try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Deleting music


When using Windows Media Player 11 to delete, you have to look carefully at the folders on the left hand side of the window in the "Library" Tab - the first set of folders are the songs stored on your computer only. If your mp3 player is plugged into the computer and the computer recognizes that it is plugged in, you will see an icon of your Mp3 player in the list of items in the library tab. You must double-click that icon of your mp3 player and bring up your music files that way. Delete the files from there, and it will usually (not always) ask you "this will permanently delete files from your device" blah blah blah. You're there.

Deleting files from Sansa e250


The only way I know to delete music files or voice or FM recordings, is straight from the User's manual on the CD: 1. Set the e250 to MSC mode. 2. Plug it in to your computer with the USB connector. 3. Open the Sansa e250 drive in My Computer and browse to the MUSIC folder (or RECORD folder)and delete the files there. (That's where you also add music files, by dragging from other explorer windows.) To delete (or add) photo and video files, you have to use the Media Converter, which you install from the disk that came with the e250.
