Help Cannot delete files from my Samsung P3

Hi folks,

I hope you can help me with my problem: I can't delete files from my Samsung P3, using my Samsung P3. I can with my computer, but if i try to delete fils using the P3 menu, it shows up this:



I can only delete the green marked folder, but not the others. And as you can see, the files / folders I cannot delete are not highlighted. Those I can delete, are highlighted.

Any ideas, why that? Or how to change? Thanks for any help .

Kind regards, leemajors


btw: like my background?

sadly, the P3 cannot delete a folder, if there is another folder inside it...

Basically, just like electron said... For example, your P3 has folders and subfolders like this in variables: P3/My Pack/X/Y/Z/

You want to delete folder X and all its contents... But you cannot simply delete folder X with all its contents at once on the P3 like you can do in your computer.

You must first delete the subfolders and its files; basically, empty the folders before deleting.

1. Delete all the contents in folder Z.
2. Move up to folder Y, and then delete folder Z.
3. Delete all contents in folder Y.
4. Move up to folder X, and then delete folder Y.
5. Delete all contents in folder X.
6. Move up to "My Pack" and finally, delete folder X.

unbelievable ... you're right, guys!
indeed, it's just the green marked folder, that doesn't have another folder in it, the others do ... little bit dingy, isn't it? but thanks for both answers, the really helped.
