No, no, I'm not talking about Silvio Berlesconi.

Basically, my - admittedly cheap as hell - mp3 player has started doing this to me after a few weeks of being good.

I have no idea what the hell it's trying to pull, but when I try to delete them it says that it can't delete because access is denied.

When I format, after a couple of days, it happens again.

The files were fine until I turned on my MP3 player to play the files...

Help?

Well, some more information is needed here.

-What exactly are you trying to delete from the MP3 player? (I'm guessing that it's MP3s, but I'd like a confirmation on that) -What brand/model MP3 player is it? -Are you managing the Music through Windows Explorer? Or are you using a third party app (like iTunes or WMP)

Did you copy some "read only" (on your HDD) files to your MP3 player ? Any idea which file system it uses ?

It's one of those cheap ones you get shipped to you from Hong Kong on eBay - it's unbranded, but this is the model: Click Here 3.) I'm managing it through Explorer, yes.

1.) I did not. 2.) RAW, apparently.

All i can say is reformat again. Its probably something in the player itself thats causing the corruption, with those cheapo ones you never know what it will do....

Sounds like iffy NAND memory to me, it's not unheard of - especially with el cheapo ACME brand gear like that. :p

Either that or it's an old player that's nearing the end of its useful life. Remember, even the most expensive flash devices have an average lifespan of only 9 years - with cheaper models it's even shorter.

Make up your mind. ;)

In either case since it's not an old device I'd say you definately have dodgy flash memory. If you know what you're doing it may be possible to repair it but for all the trouble it would cause you may as well just ask for your money back. Then go out and buy a decent MP3 player.

Yup. Cheap flash memory ain't worth a damn.
