I have an mp3 player which has somehow gotten corrupted. In some folders where there used to be mp3 files, its suddenly gotten these weirdly named gibberish files. Screenshot is below:
Notice also that it says there are 23.1 gb worth of items selected while the space on the player is actually 2 Gb.
If I try to delete these files through the computer, I get the error "Cannot delete files : Cannot read from the source file or disk" as in the screenshot. In the mp3 player itself, I simply can't do anything inside this folder, it shows none of the options until I leave the folder and go to a non corrupted one.
If I try to delete this folder via DOS, I get this error:
This makes me think that because of the weird characters in the file names, windows can't delete them. However it doesn't let me rename them either (same error as first screenshot).
Any ideas how to fix this?
