I transferred a flv file through bluetooth to my Lumia 520 with windows phone 8 OS. But after the transfer was succesfully completed, I came to know that, this extension cannot be played on my device. So, I tried to delete the file. But couldn't find it anywhere.

So, can any one tell me, where are such incompatible(unplayable) files stored, and how can I access/delete them ? Thanks.

You should be able to delete the file by simply hooking it up to your computer and removing it off the storage device on your phone. You don't indicate what phone you have so specifics are hard to provide. – Ramhound Jan 25 '14 at 15:03
As mentioned above, my phone is NOKIA LUMIA 520 . I already tried attaching the phone to my PC, but that file isn't visible even there. – MrClan Jan 25 '14 at 15:11
I glazed over the mention of the model. I suspect you will have to remove the storage media from the phone and access it directly to delete this file. – Ramhound Jan 25 '14 at 16:14
:) I don't have any SD inserted in my phone. So, I believe the file is still somewhere on the inbuilt phone memory. – MrClan Jan 26 '14 at 4:28
