Hi everybody - I'm new in town - please be gentle with me!!!
I think I've done something stupid and don't know how to clear up the mess.
I have an MP3 player - I'm not even sure of the make as I got it off e-bay and the instructions are fairly useless. It was working perfectly.... then I copied across a couple of large audio book files These somehow got corrupted in transit and I found that the directories contained several other files of one that was already on there.
Trying to delete them proved impossible as I kept getting messages that the directory wasnt emply and on checking it had all regenerated itself.
I finally managed to move all the troublesome directories into the one they were showing bits of but that wouldnt delete either. This is where I went totally stupid - using the player itself I deleted the directory - thinking I could just re-copy everything back. And everything on there went totally.
It now shows as totally empty when viewed on the computer and on the player, but the computer system tells me it is part full. When I have tried to move new fles to it says "Cannot copy XXXXX the directory or file cannot be created"
Can anyone advise?
