Try this method:
Deleting Files,Pictures,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. Be careful and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

I charged my swimP3 but it won't turn on when disconnected from the computer.

The Swimp3 Player does need to be charged for at least 3 hours for the best experience. Here are some tips that could help solve your problem:

Problem: The player doesn't turn on.

Suggestion: Charge the battery in the player for at least three hours, this will allow it to fully charge. You can charge it by plugging it into the USB port on your computer or by using a USB wall charger (sold separately). If you do choose to use a computer to charge it, be sure your computer is turned on. If there is no power to the computer, then no power is going to the USB port to charge the Swimp3 player.

Additional Tip: The charging answers are in the Green Indicator Light.

If the green light is flashing off and on, then your SwiMP3 player is charging

If the light is solid green, the SwiMP3 player is fully charged

If you have no green light - then it is not receiving a charge - check the connection, make sure its plugged in properly, or check to see that there is power from the computer or USB wall charger.

Problem: I have charged my player, the light is solid green, but no music plays.

Suggestion 1: Have you loaded music onto the player? Try adding a few mp3 or wma files and test it again.

Suggestion 2: If the power is on, you loaded music, clicked the Play button and no music comes out, press and hold the RESET button for 4 seconds. It's kind of like rebooting your computer when it crashes. Many times a simple reset clears up any challenges.

If that doesn't work, then it could be the

* volume

* incompatible files or

* folders

Volume: On some units the factory volume setting is very low.

Solution: Try turning up the volume by pressing and holding the "+" PLUS button. If you click the "+" button it changes the song, pressing and holding the button will actually control the volume. And if its too loud, press and hold the "-" MINUS button to bring the volume back down.

Incompatible Music Files: If you have loaded a music file that is not compatible, it simply won't play. The SwiMP3 player works with mp3 or wma files, but not aac (like from iTunes).

Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.

Incompatible NON-Music Files: An MP3 player is similar to a Thumb Drive or Flash Drive because it can hold any kind of file that will fit in the drive's capacity. However, if you have loaded an incompatible file - including JPEGs, Cover Art, Word Docs, anything that is not an MP3 or WMA file, the player simply can't translate it into music.

Solution: Remove the incompatible files, leaving only your mp3 or wma files in your root directory.

Folders: The mp3 player is not able to open folders and play music files stored inside, to the Swimp3 player the folder is simply an un-playable file.

Solution: Open the folders, move or copy the music files into the root directory (remember, mp3 or wma - not aac), then delete the folders.

Downloading music for the first time

You CAN use Amazon, but you may have to convert the songs via iTunes before they will load. If the songs fail to convert, then you purchased the songs in protected WMA format, which just will not work with the iPod. You cna purchase songs via iTunes - those will definitely work.

There was a time when free music was plentiful - not anymore.
You can try using the free services like Limewire, Morpheus, Forstwire, etc., but I do not reccomend them:
A) They are virus-prone
B) some ISP's will cut off your internet service if you use them
C) You have to be careful that you are only downloading songs that are in mp3 or AAC format- other formats won't work on your ipod

To the op, you might need to switch it back to MSC mode from MTP mode. You might not be able to play the DRM protected music in MSC mode, but you'll be able to access all the rest.  1. With the unit on and not attached to a computer, press the Power/Menu Button briefly once or twice so the menu is shown. 
2. Scroll down to Settings then press the OK button (round shaped, centrally located) to enter the submenu, next scroll down to the USB option and press the OK button to enter its submenu, highlight MSC, then press the OK button. After the MSC option is enabled, hold down the power/menu button until the unit shuts itself off. Now plug it back into the computer.

(Now you should be able to find some files to delete. Enter any folders/directories if necessary to find files to delete.) 

Unless you have bought and downloaded to your unit protected music from online music stores, you might find it more useful to keep the MSC setting instead of going back to the MTP setting.

To the second poster, you likely downloaded a scam file.  It's sometimes disguised as an mp3 file but it's really likely to be a wma file that has web links that automatically execute when played in Windows Media Player.  Your mp3 player errors when accessing it. Just delete the suspect file(s).
Otherwise you could reformat it or maybe upgrade the firmware. Right-click its icon in My Compter for a popup that allows a format.  Use FAT32.

Freezing mp3

This may be the mp3 player that is wired badly. However, you may taking the battery or disconnecting it from its power for 10-30 seconds. Also, power down the computer1.gif and wait for 10 seconds -30 depending on the amount of times the computer has been shut down for the week. Try downloading its driver so that the computer will recognize this hardware1.gif.
