    I transfered a .mp4 to /sdcard/movies, when I tried to watch the .mp4 it wouldn't play. So I decided to delete it from the media player, but it said the sdcard was protected and I couldn't delete it. I then tried to go to /sdcard/movies in Root Explorer, but the file doesn't show up even though you can tell the file is there because its taking up alot of the available space. I even tried to just delete the Movies folder, but it still shows that the file is there in media player.

    I decided to use adb. Here is what I did:

    C:\Users\Zane>adb shell
    # cd /sdcard/Movies
    cd /sdcard/Movies
    # ls
    ls
    Into the Wild.mp4
    # rm -r Into the Wild.mp4
    rm -r Into the Wild.mp4
    rm failed for Into, No such file or directory
    # cd /sdcard
    cd /sdcard
    # rm -rf Movies
    rm -rf Movies
    # ls
    ls
    Alarms
    Android
    DCIM
    Download
    Movies
    Music
    Notifications
    Pictures
    Podcasts
    Ringtones
    data
    #

    I cannot figure out why it liist the file, but will not let me delete it. Or why it will not delete the Movie folder even when I force the removal.

    Any ideas?
