Cannot delete files and music always there but not display upward when I connect to the computer?

Hi all

Recently, I had a lot of problems with the music does not or don't play not I decided to delete all my e260 music and start again.  That's where the real problem started.

For some reason I can't delete three of the albums on my player.  Each of the albums have what appear to be corrupted in them files. My computer does not recognize the file type and file extension is given so I don't know what they are.  Each file "appears" to 4 GB in size but that may not be appropriate for my e260 is obviously only 4 GB in size!

Whenever I try to delete them I get an error message reading "cannot delete file: cannot read the source file or disc»

I tried to update the firmware, reset e260 to factory default settings and made 'restore' thingy (where you hold registration and plug it into the computer, etc.) and these files are still there.

After reading this thing of disk checking on this forum, I did this.  I was then able to remove two of the albums, but when I tried to delete the third album renamed 'a' and the damaged file shows 0 bytes in size, but I still can not remove.  However, I can move it to the folder music to any other folder.  I just can not remove!  When I do, I get an error message saying "cannot delete f: cannot find the file specified. '.  Be sure to only specify the path and the correct name.

After all that I started my e260, and now I find that 2 other albums are always on it, even if they do not display any where when I connect it to the computer.  I can see and read these albums on the drive, and they seem well, they do not appear to be there when I plug it into the computer and look for them in windows Explorer.  The music folder is not hidden also.  These two albums are not part 3 albums that I could not remove, they are actually part of the new substance started sort of all these problems with the music does not and is not only now that they are the display upwards and play but are not appear when connected to the computer!

I know it's probably not a lot of information but can someone tell me how to fix this?  If not, can I just format the * bleep * thing or I'll then have an e260 dead?

See you soon,.


PS: Sorry for the long windedness of this post.

Format will not remove the firmware, which is the operating system of the Sansa. It removes only the content that you have added. It will go back to what it was when it was new out of the box.

MTP does not matter if you have never used it. The ghost album can be just a list remains in your database file. Nevertheless, we must get rid of this corrupt file, so Format is probably your best option.

For what it's worth, to connect with the PSG, your computer needs Windows Media Player 10 or 11 is installed. XP comes with WMP 9, so he will not see the Sansa in MTP mode. unless you have updated.

  • Step, repeat and move an object, but not with values of %... rather the real numbers


    I have an item I want to make a few copies of and get more than 1.5 mm each time.

    Normally, I would use the function of deformation and transformation for an array of objects as it and then expand appearance, but I can only resize in % no values by using this dialog box. Is it possible to do using a real number as the addition of the 1. 5 mm to each object?

    Even the ordinary scale transformation options allows only values of %.

    Thank you!


    Use a mix. Example:

    Suppose I have a rectangle with a height of 1 ". I need a set of six rectangles (including the original), each increase in height by. 25 ".

    1. multiply the number of additional steps requested by the desired increment. (5 x. 25 "= 2.25".

    2 transformation Palette (or control panel): adjust the height of the copy to 2.25 ".

    3. Select both. Object > blend > make.

    4 mix Options: specified as follows: enter the total desired minus 2 (4 intermediate steps).

    5. develop the mixture. "I now have a group of 6 rectangles with heights 1", 1.25 ", 1.5", 1.75"-2", 2.25 ".

    If the object in question is more complex, convert to symbol. Then run the above on two Instances of the symbol. (Don't forget to use the barred proportion between the height and width fields if you want the objects 'grow' proportionately.)


  • How can I download the new update on my Macbook pro when the password is not working? When I connect to the Adobe site with the same user name and password it DOES not work. I don't understand why.

    So I have a macbook pro - and she advised me that I had to update my Adobe flash player. So I go through all the steps and I'm stuck at the last stage, where he asks me my user name and password. I go in there correctly - several times and it does NOT connect. He shakes to show that there's an error. Double check my file AND I go to the Adobe site to connect with the same information. and it works very well.

    WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? Help please.

    Could you please try ComputerName administrator as username and the password as password.

  • Help! The files do not appear on the rocket when it is connected to the computer

    I brought all my library Windows Media WMA and mp3s on my rocket using auto when I got it. For some reason, the "rocket" do not place files in the music folder or elsewhere, that I can find them when it is connected to my computer. The music folder is empty. The files appear on my rocket only when it is disconnected! It's a pain to remove things quickly. I really want to sort through hundreds of songs and remove them manually one at a time to make room for the new. Can someone please?

    I'm about to use my magical powers of intuition here.

    Look in settings/USB Mode. Auto-Detect, right? (Please limit your applause.)

    That's your problem. It detects a different USB mode for each computer.

    There are two modes USB, MSC and MTP, modified through parameters. There are also automatic detection, which goes to the PSG first, then of MSC if there is no player Windows Media on the computer.

    A computer can see a way or the other: just just the MTP or MSC.  The "rocket" sees all.

    DPW works with Windows Media Player. This is prbably that you have configured on your PC.

    MSC works as a generic flash/thumb/disc player. This is how you connect to the Mac.

    Solution: Connect to the PC and move the files of the "rocket" to the PC.  Change MSC mode and put them on the "rocket" in MSC mode.  When you connect to the Mac that they will be there. And when you connect to the computer, they will be there as well - but now you will see them in MSC mode.

  • Cannot delete file win xp sp3

    I have two files that I can't remove.  The name is avidemux_2.5_r7200_win32.exe I d/l from somehow, they changed their date on themselves at the 06:43 04/30/1986 on all attempts, the error message is the same: it is used by another person or program.  I realize that there is a perion in the middle of the file name.

    I can't change the name.

    I tried to remove it by using the right click, delete file and tasks folder, cmd prompt del filename and cmd prompt deltree filename.

    I tried to change the attributes with the only success beint removing hidden.

    I am able to copy the files to another directory, but the copy is undeletable also (so now I have 4 copies).

    I'm unable to move the file to another directory.

    I used regedit and delete any key with this file name (the company is the nth file).

    I restarted in safe mode and cannot be removed using the foregoing.

    There's a copy on my backup NAT and I can not remove this file from here either.  Understand an output, please.

    Well, I thought I knew about the removal of things but...  I really need some help here.


    This looks like a nasty piece of malware.  No legitimate program protects himself as well...

    My next step would be to start from an operating system on a CD.  I love the free Hirens Boot CD
    Hirens: <> >

    Download the file .zip, extract it to the hard drive, and double-click the file ".cmd" generate/create a bootable CD.  Boot your system from the CD and select the option 'Mini Windows XP'.
    Booting from CD does several things for you.  First, it ensures that none of the files on the hard disk are "used" and in the second place, malicious programs on the disk hard which can actively prevent the deletion of one such file will not present when booting from a CD.

    AprΦs the dΘmarrage, you might want to make sure that there are no attributes system or hidden on the file that you want to delete and you will find a multitude of utilities on this CD that should be able to get rid of this file for you.  In my view, there are also utilities anti-malware on this CD that you can choose to run while you're started towards him.  Let me know if it helps


  • Sudden CPU hogging + cannot delete files on the desktop

    I was with earlier FL Studio to make music, then I exported a bunch of files .wav (as separate channels) to my office. Now, there are 14 ".wav" files on my desk I have is no longer necessary. When I try to highlight all remove, a dialg box opens saying "ready to remove" then below, he has time to outbound... Calculation... and this box stays on forever without change. I try to put an end to the session, had not responding alarm and needs to restart windows Explorer. I try to delete one by one, same thing. I tried to remove/change any other file as these 14 .wav files, they all deletions or works normally, no worries. I even deleted a ".midi" file exported from the same FL Studio software without problem, which begs the question. Why can I not delete/modify(move, copy, chk properties) these 14 .wav files. Looks like Windows Explorer crashes whenever I try to delete them. Right-click on one of the files, and then click Properties, nothing happens. I tried several times after restarting Windows, same thing. Another question that occur almost at the same time, it's that I noticed my cpu (Athlon II x 4 @2. 8 GHz) has been constantly in use about 60% (on all 4 cores). For comparison in normal operation, running a demanding application such as Call of Duty 4 game uses as much (~ 60% I checked) resource CPU. Before that, when I check my cpu just after startup, it uses 0-2% now after starting, using 50-75% CONSTANTLY immediately even during moments of rest. When I check the process, a call app "dllhost.exe alias COM Surrogate" has listed 25 under CPU constantly while all other open processes are considered to be 00 or 01 under the same parameter. I tried ending the process both the process of the "dllhost.exe" tree, but it starts immediately with the same listed 25 under CPU and my CPU resource still used up to about 60%. This is all very curious because they all seems to happen at the same time and without precursor of actions/mistakes. Someone help me please to solve these problems or at least let me know what could possibly cause these symptoms.

    My specs: CPU Athlon II 630 x 4 @2. 8 GHz, RAM 8 GB DDR3 SDRAM 1333 MHz, Nvidia 9600GT GPU, Momentus XT hybrid total HDD(7200rpm/4Gb SSM) 250 GB (112 GB free), 64-bit OS Windows 7 (latest updates installed), DirectX11

    Yes, my system problems have been resolved. Sorry for taking so long to get back to you guys. After working with the engineer for a few days, we finally found a way to remove the files and stop hogging it, but it is a partial correction because the primary cause remains until Microsoft release a patch for this problem, I was not billed by the Department because he is an anomaly in the Microsoft System in addition to the cooperative solution approach.

    The only solution is to delete the problematic files and install the latest updates for Windows and all that software output of the file (in my case FL Studio). You'll need the Microsoft Windows Performance toolkit, scanned your system for the source of cpu and use PWS mem to identify files in use by dllhost, then kill all services except those who criticize. Make sure that you do not access these files on the issue. The only way to remove these problem files is back. First of all, you need to change the access right for your ACL by using the CACLS command. Once you have changed for each of the file paths you want to delete, you can delete each files * separately *. After the removal, you will need to restart your computer. then your pc should run normally with the normal CPU usage below.

  • Cannot delete file in windows Media Player

    I can delete video files from Windows Media Player. I think that I deleted them before somehow but standard photos (balloon, balloons) always appear in video library for all deleted files and try right-click and delete is not remove them from the library. There is no error message when you try to remove them and when you try to play them you get Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file. I don't want to play the file I want to just delete it.

    You probably need to reset the library to get rid of the files in the library. Note firstly reset the library will make you lose all play counts and ratings too. Then, follow these steps:

    -Restart the PC.
    -Click Start, type services.msc in the search field and press ENTER. In Services, locate the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service . If its status is started , double-click the service, and then click stop .
    -Click Start, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft in the search field and press ENTER. This folder opens in Windows Explorer.
    -In this folder, rename the folder Media Player as Old Media Player . If you do not see the folder, then it is probably hidden. Set Explorer to view the hidden files and folders and show protected system files.
    -Launch WMP, your library will have been reset and will be rebuilt.

  • Cannot delete files locked in the temp folder

    I emptied regularly delete all files in the temp via the function folder in the Tools menu of IE9 and also by searching on folder and deleting the contents of the temporary Local AppData file in the users folder.

    Ten days ago, I found there are some files in the folder temporary AppData that were locked and could not be removed. This only happens in a user account, and this isn't an administrator account. Opening of properties on any of the files by checking the Security tab, I find I am wierdly the sole owner of the file, but have limited permissions. I tried to change the permissions to get total control and then remove the file, but that did not work, nor has anything else I could think of. This included the stop of all open applications and disconnects all users.

    Other file properties:

    -Open with "Windows Shell Commo" - little matter that is.

    -Similar names to ~ DF38C18158B32C1039. TMP

    -Attributes: ATI

    -The size is small (512 bytes, for example)

    -No previous versions

    Normally the files in this folder have names like this except without the ~.

    After having in vain tried everything I could think of to delete these files, I downloaded Revo Uninstaller, who managed to remove all the files locked in the record at the time.  However, the problem resurfaced shortly after and this time Revo Uninstaller did not work.

    I spent a few days of research on the net and try different options without success until I stumbled on a recommendation to go into Control Panel, search for Java, open its settings menu and refuse authorisation for Java to back up the data on my computer.  It worked - I went back in the folder, the files were no longer locked, I was able to remove them as I usually do and I had no other problems with the locked files. Until yesterday.

    I double-checked the settings of Java to ensure that authorization still denied to save data on my computer. I don't remember now if I set permission to refuse when I checked again. I tried then to Revo Uninstaller again, but he failed again to remove these files locked. I noticed today that the date for all files is last July 15.  It seems (so far) no new files have been generated, but I still cannot delete locked files 51 of my computer.  My biggest concern, obviously, is security.  I don't want to locked files including origins, functions and activities that I do nothing on my computer, especially if I'm unable to remove them.

    I want to know how to remove these files, what caused do them appear in the first place and how to prevent them from happening again.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for this suggestion, Oberwald. It came a little too late, however.  Finally, it occurred to me to try my anti-virus software file shredder function and he managed to remove the locked files.

    I believe now these locked files were likely due to some kind of malware - after shredding, my desktop Recycle bin flashed repeatedly icon when I shut down the computer. Also, after have logged you in today, I find everything runs much faster and no sign of keylogging.  Seem to be back to normal.

    I was able to save the link and it will try in the future if necessary.

    Thanks again!

  • Cannot delete files .ai

    I can't delete .ai files in Adobe Illustrator v.10 running on Vista.

    error that says "... cannot delete file is used beginning."

    I tried everything the web has to offer including: start-up, different removal software, changing aiicon.dll, shit, chsdsk, etc.

    I sure there are a lot of people who have this problem, I scan the web, however, no solution have seems to be found.

    Help, please!

    I had this problem frequently both. HAVE and. Files EPS on Windows XP, different versions of Illustrator, including 7 and 10. You can try this program:

    It runs quietly in the background until there is a sharing violation (for example, you can not delete a file, etc.). Then it pops up a window showing what process has the file locked. With Illustrator files, the culprit is usually Windows Explorer... my guess is that it tries to generate a thumbnail preview, but somehow never quite finished and leave the open file. You will be able to kill the offending process (which is kind of how dirty to do things, but drastic times... you know). Then you should be able to delete the files without problem.


  • Cannot delete files from the Recycle Bin


    I'm unable to access my trash, everythime I click on the folder, it says windows Explorer has a problem, then said restarting windows.

    And the window just closes, it is there anyway to delete the files from the trash bin other than to go to the folder it self.

    See you soon


    Here is an article on how to repair a trash corrupted in Vista:

    It restarts if you left or do a right-click on the icon or both?  Here are a few ways to empty it by using two methods:

    1. On the desktop, right-click on the Recycle Bin.
    2. Then click the Empty trash to empty its contents.
    3. You will be asked if you are sure that before it permanently deletes the files.
    4. If you're absolutely sure, then click Yes to clear the contents of the Recycle Bin.
    5. Alternatively, you can double-click the Recycle Bin to open and examine its contents.
    6. And then on the file menu, click empty the Recycle Bin.
    7. After confirmation, Windows Vista will be empty all files from the Recycle Bin.

    Go to control panel / customization / Desktop Icons and remove the trash, click OK and close.  Then go back and add the trash.  See if the new basket has the same problem.

    Here is a program that you download that adds a command to empty the trash to the command line if all that you need to do is type of the command in the box search now and it will happen.

    I hope this helps.
