How to remove old SD card contents

My previous SD card suddenly failed so I lost everything stored on it.  My issue now is that while Ive a new card installed the system still shows the contents of the old card & given much of the likes of the music was transferred from the PC theres rathr a LOT to wok through manually to remove the references.  So I was wondering if there's a simpler meethod by any chance.  Equally with the Amazon downloaded songs is there a quick method to install them all in one go rather than wading through song by song?  Thanks.

Thats werd, are you sure youve not put the old card back by mistake, it really really shouldnt be doing that ??????

To answer yok ur question, install ES  file manager, in you havent, then findd yourway to the sd card contents and just delete the whole music folder in one go, then put another music folder on it

Sd dont generally fail, try it is something else to see if you recover your stuff

RE: How to remove old SD card contents

Hi Jobo
Yeh - it seemed a bit odd to me as well that the card should suddenly fail.  First problems began whereby I couldn't get the Kindle to boot up properly - it kept crashing & only stopped when I removed the card.  But I then tried to access the card on a reader but couldn't so had to assume it was dead (prob a cheap Chinese job!!),

So I'd then bought a new card & ran into the problems mentioned.  So glad to know at least there's another way round it all as a lot of the unaccessible music is stuff I'd uploaded a good while back that I don't necessarily want anyway - just annoying seeing it all there.  Makes me rather frustrated that I hadn't backed up the card at some point as there's also a lot of songs I don't recognise that I must have put on from somewhere else. 

Anyways - thanks so much for your reply - had almost given up on it. Smile
