I am having trouble deleting songs from my mp3 player. When I connect it it goes to the Best Buy digital music store, and the device shows up in my sources, but none of my playlists or songs show up under it. I have tried going to My Computer and doing it from there, but the only songs I could find in there were the ones that came with the player. Then I tried reformatting it, but I still can't find any of my songs anywhere to delete them. Help please!

Re: can't delete songs
Try changing the "mode" on the device.
Settings>Mode or USB Mode>MTP or MSC.*
*(if you have thr 'R' version, your options will be Rhapsody or Plays for Sure)
If you transferred music in one mode, you are not able to see it in the other mode.
Best of Luck.

Easier to format and state over... If the music is not stored on the computer transfer from the player to your computer Drag and drop is the best way Always format this gets rid of any unwanted mistakes or possible viruses or even boot files which will freeze most players try not to boot your computer with the player connected...........
You have to plug the mp3 player into the computer, double-click My Computer, double click on the icon of the GoGear, and then go into the Music folder - exercise caution: only delete music files - if you delete files that are non-music files, you will effectively destroy your GoGear.
Windows Media Player is more complex, but it is a safer way to delete songs:

Yes. You have to have an active account to keep listening to those songs. On another note (no pun intended) anything that you OWN in your music files will play for you.
I quit the subscription from Best Buy, deleted the songs I didn't own and now I am satisfied.
My problem was that I was deleting the existing library list in my computer when I attempted to add more songs to the MP3 player. I thought since I had already downloaded them to the MP3 player, that I could get rid of them from my PC's Media Player's library. The new songs I tried to add, would override the old songs stored in the MP3 player. Apparently you have to continue to store all the songs in your PC's library, and then when you add more songs you can transfer only the new ones to your MP3 player. A guy at my work told me this.
go to file browser on the p2 and click on songs. then you can select the songs and delete them from the device. You can also use best buy digitalmusic store or just plug in your device and go to computer yp py and hit songs then you can delete some of your tracks. If you have any more questions email me at [email protected]
You can manually delete the music from your computer.
Connect the device. Go to My Computer>Device name Double click on the device to see the contents. You may or may not have a "music" folder, look in there to manually delete the music.
Best of Luck.
