How to erase MP3 in SD card using Palm TX?

by kiddokit / February 2, 2006 3:51 PM PST

Hey guys! Just got the Palm TX after reading the fabulous reviews on it. But I cannot find out how to delete MP3 songs already stored into SD card from Palm OS. The Card Info application is of no help. Any tips anybody? Thank you.

Still no go ?

Try Tap and Hold. Then choose remove or delete. If you want to remove the whole lot at once, try formating the card..... Other things to try: File>Options, Settings >Card...., Card>Options.... etc.

You may need an add on FILE MANAGER.

I'll write more later. Look up as an example of add on software. If you don't find it, keep looking and I'll post again later.

Hey, Papa and Rob! Happy

Thank you for your suggestions. I tried both ways, but in the end, the conclusive method was to download the 3rd. party application called FileZ. I believe Rob would know what this is. Happy

Using FileZ, I managed to peek into the SD card in more detail and deleted some files. Fantastic-o! Thanks again, guys!

FileZ skipped out on me. Is it back?

I used FileZ for years, but some recent version was a dud on our E2, T|X, LifeDrive and other models so I didn't reply with that title.

Given your reply (thank you!!!) I'll have to hunt down the latest version and try it again.

Gee, Bob...I've no idea how many versions it's gone through. But I can tell you that the version I currently have installed into my TX is Ver. 6.4 dated 14 Oct 2004. The creator of this software is

I've surfed their website, looks like they have a few other OSS programs for free downloads.

The older FileZ that we keep around was version 2.6.1 from 2001.

Thank you again for the update, I'll update this sometime today or tomorrow.
