    I am trying to put music on my mothers MP3 player, which i have done before multipul times, but now everytime i try to move a file from my music file to her MP3 file, it says "Cannot create or replace file: The disk is write protected. Remove the write-protection or use another disk." i dont know how to remove the write protection. i tried to move other files to the MP3, but all files give me the same message, even the ones that are already in the MP3 folder... i dont know what to do... please help ~KJ

    There isn't a tiny little switch on it somewhere, is there? Or you might try looking through the menus to see if write protection is an option?

    Will it let you delete any songs?

    One thing is on fixing something. It is almost impossible to fix something when we do not know what make and model it is, sort of like me asking an auto mechanic to fix my car and not giving him the car. Please give the information needed heck we do not even know what kind of a PC you have or the Operating System or anything else, we got to get out of the dark.

    I suggest you take it to a friends computer and see if it behaves the same way. You must know someone with a PC...
