How do i over write my media write?

My MP3 won't even let me delete stuff off it on the computer. It always comes up with the message, "Media write is protected". What should I do? I can't fit any thing else on there and I don't like every thing on there. Help me please.

Is there a way to delete music off my computer without loosing the music on my mp3

Yes just delete the music from your computer. It should not effect your player even if you hook back up. Sony has two programs that you can install on your computer to help you manage your stuff, Check out this link.

Where does a deleted file go? any chance for recovery?

You are going to have to start again, first connect the unit to your computer copy anything you want to save piccys movies and stuff but not the corrupted music files, Format the drive, then goto download the driver files and re-install to the PVR, then copy all your mp3 files back.........

Can't copy files to and from Windows Media Player

If the music service subscription that you originally used to transfer these files has expired, then you will get this error message.

Also, you have to fully resynchronize to the original computer yo connected the player to every 30 days.

Sansa e260 won't let me download certain music

If you used Windows Media Player to "rip" (copy) the music to your computer. The default settings are to "copy protect my music" if you didnt change this setting, the Sansa will want a "license" to go with it. Resolution, change the setting in Windows Media Player, Tools>Options>Rip Music (uncheck copy protect my music). You can also change the default rip setting to Mp3, as opposed to Windows Media Audio. Then you would have to re-rip the tracks to your PC, as unprotected. Make sure you delete the old tracks from the device, otherwise, it will always give you that error message. Best of Luck.

If the operating system was deleted, then you need to buy a new MP3 player.
