    Have you unmounted and then mounted the SD again? If you were able to delete the music file it sounds like you had write permissions at that time.

    Yeah, kinda figured you did after I already posted. Do you have access to another Android phone? Also is there anything on the SD that is not backed up you can't lose?

    If your answers are yes then no, I suggest formatting the card in the other Android phone. If you don't have access to another phone then get the SD in a CPU and format in FAT32. It sounds like part of the card is corrupted.
