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

I already wrote disc but how to overwrite a disc


On a CD-R, if you don't finalize or write protect the disk, can you overwrite a file?

Or in overwriting are you simply creating a second file of the same name in the TOC/directory and deleting the name, only, of the first file


You can add more data if there is space on the DVD+R, but you can't overwrite it.

You see, when a disc is burned, little microscopic ridges are put onto the disc. This is your data.

You cannot overwrite this data.

It's kind of like trying to use a permanent marker on the same spot of paper twice.

My Music folder suddenly deleted all the files in it, but the folder won't delete because it says it's not empty; however, it won't let me open it either. It keeps popping up an Error code 0x80070091: The...


You probably have a disk-drive with some "bad" sectors.
So, when you try to read the sectors that contain the directory for the 'My Music' folder,
that sector cannot be read, and thus Windows reports an "empty" folder.

It's probable that your disk-drive is about to _completely_ fail, not just _partially_.
Make a backup of what files & folders that _can_ be read.

My portable player won't sync music..reads "iddataaai"


My Philips MP3 player had the same problem after I saved some non-music files onto it through USB connection. After I deleted these files, it seems to be working okay again. If it doesn't work, I guess you can also try re-formating it.
