    I have two P2P programs. I was uninstalling one of them and moved the files to the other shared file folder thinking they would be lost when I did the uninstall. Now they will not play. they come up on the player but it is as if the file is empty. I tried to move them, copy them, delete them, drag&drop them but keep getting an access denied message. Whats going on? I'm running XP.

    The files may be set to read only . Right click on them, choose properties and uncheck Read Only.
    Also it may depend on download.

    Went into properties, "read only files" was not checked.
    When I checked it ( did this to see what would happen ) and went to apply it--access was denied.??????

    I have now tried to delete the folder containing the shared files "Access Denied".
    I deleted the P2P program containing the files and it left them behind "Access Denied"
    I used system restore and the files were still there "Access Denied"

    try opening a command line. Start>Programs>accessories.
    At the prompt type cd c:folder name
    (where the mp3 is)
    once there type: attrib filename -r-a-s-h
    (Where filename is the full mp3 name.)
    Then type: del filname

    Hello, I managed to find the answer to my problem accidently. I created a folder in (My Music-(Win XP Home)I then moved the entire folder containing the MP3 program into the newly created folder. I was able to delete the frozen files from within the new folder. "Go Figure". Thanks for everyones input.
