Re: Mp3 player won't let me add or delete files
Hi, well these MP3 players can b real finicky. what you could try first is to Uninstall the program & drivers, and then re-insert the MP3 into ANY OTHER USB port but the one it was in.. and when/if it detects it, point it to the driver CD and reload them.. At this point ya may be OK... If NOT, then perhaps ya MP3 player has gone faulty.. they seem to go toes up for no reason? I have seen lots at my shop.. Another thing to try, is a Format of the device... Ya will lose all ya data tho :( not the best option.. but it may be ya only other option, after ya tried all the rest. To do so folllow the instructions in ya manual. Good Luck.

Generally speaking, when you connect an mP3 player to a computer via USB then the storage capability usually shows up in file explorer (My Computer) as an extra drive of some description (often "removable drive"). Its a good idea to have My computer open and showing your drives when you plug the USB cable in, because then you will see the USB drive added to the list and recognise a new drive letter.
Having got a drive letter for your mP3 player you can then scroll through the folders and files on the mP3 player just as if it were a drive in the computer, and hence copy, move and delete files as on the computer. Particularly with an mP3 player with relatively limited capacity, this means that you can change the tracks on it regularly from a larger library on the computer.

I have a stunning new breakthrough on the frequently cited problem - "I cannot add any more songs to my Mp3 Player." Before we proceed, I am assuming that the reason you cannot add any more files has nothing to do with available memory space. Of course, if your Mp3 player is full, it will not accept any more songs. But, I am assuming that this is not your problem. Apparently, if you add too many folders, especially via Playlist, via Windows Media Player, the Mp3 player's file system will become unstable - it can only handle a certain number of additional folders.
To resolve the issue:
1. Connect the player to the PC using the USB cable. 2. Open Windows Media Player. 3. Go to the Sync or Devices tab and delete all content from the player. 4. Go to the Tools menu and select Options. 5. Select the Devices tab, highlight the ILO or Siren player and click on Properties. 6. Uncheck the box "Create Folder Hierarchy on Device"
Now, when music is transferred, it will be placed in the root directory of the flash memory disregarding the folder structure and allowing all tracks to be seen.
This procedure was designed for Siren Mp3 players, but is applicable to many other Mp3 players. It is not a guaranteed fix for every Mp3 player and every error of this type, but it is certainly not a widely known or reported solution. i hope that this benefits many Mp3 player owners who are experiencing this issue.
MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.When the player is connected to your computer you can add and delete the music files. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.

1.Turn on your computer. Connect your Samsung MP3 player to your PC via the USB cord. Power on your Samsung MP3 Player.2Wait for the popup screen and select "Open Folder to View Files." If no screen appears, navigate to my computer and double-click the Samsung player.3Select the MP3 files you no longer want on your player by highlighting them with the mouse.4Right-click and select "Delete."5Close the folder and safely remove the MP3 player by using the "Safely Remove Hardware" feature in the system tray.
Connect the MP3 player to your computer using the USB cable.
The computer will see this as an external drive or removable disk.
Click on this MP3 device and open the folder where the MP3 music files are located, then click to highlight the music files you want to delete and then press the DEL (delete) key to remove them from the MP3 player. This is the same procedure in deleting files from your computer's hard disk.
+Connect it to your computer via a usb cable, click on the relative disc and find your music. Then you just add or delete to your hearts content, remembering to use the safe release mode when disconnecting it from the computer.
just plug it onto another usb port, if it still don't work then connect your mp3 player to someone else's computer and delete all files from there, it should work now.. if you still have the same problem then i suggest this: take your mp3 player and throw it against the wall, cuss it out really loud, get a new one.
