    I am not able to create or delete files in the Music or Pictures directories by any method. I've tried the built-in File Manager, ES File Explorer, and even Air Droid from my Desktop. The directories show as Writable, but nothing I try to delete, create, or move seems to work.

    Is there something locking these directories?

    After updating to ICS, I am still unable to delete create files or directories in those directories.

    Still looking for help on how to fix this.

    Can you copy files to those directories? I just got my replacement prime last night, and whenever I tried to copy a file to the Music directory, it just hung there. Eventually I just made a Music2 directory, copied everything over, then deleted the music directory and renamed music2 to music. If I were to have additional problems, I would look into finding some utility that does checkdisk type functions on the prime's internal memory.

    I can do no functions in these directories at all. Not create, delete, copy into or anything. Thus I am unable to delete the directory in order to create a new one. I have created a support case for this with Asus. We'll see how they come back.
