I cannot delete folders from my GPX they are apparently "Read Only" files...help!
I have two empty folders in my GPX that will not delete. I checked their propreties and the "read only" box is checked but it will not allow me to uncheck it, therefore I cannot delete the folders! I've tried right clicking on them and delete. I've tried selecting them and pressing delete on my keyboard. I've tried dragging the folders to my recycle bin! I've tried EVERYTHING!!! Please, how can I get them out????
Re: I cannot delete folders from my GPX they are...
You may try to delete your folders with Unlocker If it doesn't you could try in dos (run cmd):
attrib -s -h -r "location" /s
(location being where the folder is located.)
This should remove any Systems file flag, read only flag or hidden file flag. del /F "folders"

Connect the MP3player to a computer using the included USBcable.If prompted,select"OPEN FOLDER TO VIEW FILES USING WINDOWS EXPLORER"otherwise,go to MYCOMPUTER and click on the drive named GPX. if you see a music folder open it by double clicking on the left mouse button. to delete songs left click the song once to select it then right click it and choose delete
Connect your mp3 player. Double click the My Computer icon on your desktop. Then, in the window that opens, double click GPX Device, Double click Portable Memory, and Double click the Music folder. All of your audio files are now visable. To delete any one of them just right click and select delete. Or click on the file just once and hit the Delete button on your key board.
Plug the device into your computer with your USB cord. Double click the Computer icon on your Desktop. Then double click on GPX Device and double click again on Removable Storage and double click the Music folder. You should now be able to see all the files you've loaded onto your MP3 player. Simply select the ones you no longer want and hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
Place the music files that you want to transfer into the My Music folder of your computer - Windows will re-read them, and then you can synchronize to your device. Also, make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged on the mp3 player - it probably isn't, but just check.
Might be set read-only? Try right clicking on it, going to properties, and seeing if the read-only option is checked. Me, I found a program called Unlocker, located at http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/
If you have the manual in digital form, please post it on this site.
Search the manual for a way to reset the device, if you can't find it try disconnecting it from any power source(AC, batteries, etc) for a few days.
On showing Hidden files/folders: from windows explorer, while inside the GPX external drive- click on tools>folder options>view>hidden files and folders
