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.
