Default Video information will not delete off the blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I copied some videos on the blackberry using media manager. I then later deleted the videos off of the blackberry. I copied new videos onto the black berry and looked at the list, The titles of the previous videos appear in the list of videos thought the are no longer on the blackberry. I don't want them on there cause it's gets hard to find the video I'm looking for. I cannot delete them since the file does not exist. Is there a way to reindex the movies list so that it checks for the files before listing them in the window. I also noticed that the properties of the file the information says that the file is read only is checked. If I attempt to play the file it skips to a file that is actually there on the device. The only way that I can clear this list that I can think of is to pull the battery out and then boot it back up. However the next time I copy a video over the previous files names reappear. There has to be an easier way to clear this list. Any Ideas?

You are adding them through media manager, are you deleting them through that or directly? If directly, I would guess that the database isn't being updated which leaves them in the list.
