Downloaded a load of songs onto phone and now l cant delete them! How do l delete them from the phone...?


When I want to delete songs I use HTC's Music app. Have you tried this already?

Go to the Music list and look for the specific song, long press on the song title (or the Album Name to delete all songs in that album), and select "Delete" on the popup menu.

Hope this helps.

Cant delete fies from my player


I know that the manual says to use Windows Explorer, but you can use Windows Media Player instead (it is safer). Before I go into those instructions, you can still use Windows Explorer to delete as long as the songs are not makred as read-only - to check for this, right-click a song you want to delete, and see if the Read-Only box is checked under Properties. If it is not checked or you can't see your files in the first place - go to Tools --> Folder Options --> View --> check Show Hidden Files and Folders.

Current files on gogear mp3 cant be replaced.


The HDD6330 doesn't respond well to Windows Media Player 11 - I know it's a pain, but you may have to rollback to Windows Media Player 10 to get it to display correctly (don't worry - you will not lose your existing files by doing so).

If you changed the name of the song then thats the problem just simply change its name back to the original.

If thats not the problem then just delete the song or it will mess your sansa up and download it again for free with limewire
