If you are using a Mac, you just have to empty your trashcan. It will also empty out your computer's trash at the same time.

Mac puts all deleted music in an invisible folder called (.trashes) on the Philips rather than deleting them for some reason so you have to empty it.

If you aren't using a Mac or this does not work it may not be partitioned properly. You should use the software that came with it.

The Philips software doesn't work on a Mac, but you can use Disk Utility. First mount the Philips and use the Partition tab to make it only have "1 Partition" then use the Erase tab to set it to an MS-DOS file system.

I found out that my Philips had two partitions and it was limiting my space so that's how I solved it.

Did you use Windows Media Player to transfer the files - using any other program is going to cause problems like this. Go ahead and try the Update function in the Philips Device Manager - it's a shortcut for deleting the songs so you can start over and will remove the corruption. If you can't find the Device Manager, go to www.usasupport.philips.com and get the Device Manager from there.

How do i transfer files from itunes to ipod shuffle


First, and most obviuos, plug in your iPod. iTunes should automatically pop up and recognize your iPod shuffle. How many gigs can it hold? When you plug in your iPod to your authorized account, you shuold automatically see iTunes transferring songs into your iPod.
If not, manually transfer songs into your iPod. Select your iPod on the left hand panel of iTunes, where you can look into your iPod. Next, look at the menu that pops up when you click your iPod (it shold show you your iPod, how mny gigs it can hold, etc.). Click 'Manually transfer songs'. From there, you can choose which songs to download into your iPod from iTunes (whichever songs are checked in the little boxes on the left of your songs in your iTunes).

Good luck!
