    In copying music from iTunes to my Droid X, I somehow got two copies of everything onto the phone. instead of going through 2,600 songs and deleting every other one, can I just delete all music from the X and start over?

    Yeah, no reason why not.. What did you use to transfer your files over?

    Thanks, Hook, but ...

    I used Motorola Music Link to transfer everything.

    I guess I should have wroded my question better. HOW can I delete all music from the phone and then reload it?

    Mount your Droid. Go into your music folder and File, select all, delete.

    That would be the easiest way.

    Details, please. I have had this phone just two days. When I go to Settings > SD Card, I can unmount it. What do you mean by mounting the phone itself? The manual says

    Delete or share files on your phone​
    Find it: ​
    Launcher icon
    > Files > Phone files

    Touch a file or folder to open, then touch and hold a file
    to ​
    Delete or Share.

    Is that what you mean?

    Jerry

    Plug the phone in via USB cable. Look up in the Notification Bar after plugging it in...you should see USB listed there. Pull down the Notification Area and tap the USB menu...it will then allow you to select which USB Mode you want. Choose either PC Mode or Mass Storage Mode. Now, you should be able to go to "My Computer" on your PC and see the Droid X listed...click on it to open it, and there you will see the files/folders on your SD card. Navigate to the folder where your music is and delete the files as you would on any other drive.

    Fantastic!

    BodyBagz, I did what you said with the USB and My Computer, and it worked fine. i deleted the music. Now I'll try again. Day by day I'm getting to understand this.

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    Still pretty easy, open the music app, long press on the album or song you don't want and one of the options that comes up is delete.
