    Currently I am having an issue with my SD card storage.
    It started when iMusic told me i was out of space, on a 4gig SD card when i had mayb 5 songs on the phone!

    so i went to my astro manager file manager to delete some files just to see. i keep getting "error deleting files" on anything i try to delte, ive taken the card out rebooted etc etc.

    It makes me think the card may be locked? as its not even letting me save anything to it now.

    Any idea what is going on or how to fix this?

    Should i just root the dang thing to avoid problems like this?

    thanks for your help!

    Update: I can delete files by going into the generic "music" app and long touching the song and selecting delete.

    Hoping this issue a phone issue. It just started after the update i recieved this morning.

    Problems like this usually mean errors on the SD card. I'd usually recommend replacing the card or reformating/error checking the disc.

    You could hook the phone up to a PC by USB and see if you can delete the files using your PCs file manager.
