Default How To Remove All Songs From Memory Card But Keep Everything Else

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I'm in the process of re-installing all my music. How can I remove all the songs from my memory card while retaining all the pictures and videos I took from my device? I can easily do a format card, but that will remove all the pictures and videos I took as well. Any idea how I can remove all my songs and start all over?

delete the directory you music is in. Then recreate it as an empty directory and fill it with music again.

Insert SD into a PC and do it that way. Much easier

VRaptor's suggestion is a good one, and easy to do on the device, if you are confident you don't care to keep anything that's in the folder. And likely the BlackBerry will recreate the folder if it is a standard folder, though maybe not.

Personally, I play it safe. I would do it on the computer as Dubdub say's, and do it via searches, and scan the result before deleting. Search on *.mp3, etc, on the whole card. Then scroll down through the result for anything you don't want to delete.
