Hah..that's not a problem, that's an advantage. And of course, no GUI = no accessibility issues.
Saved this info for later; thanks.

There’s an app called Photorec that can recover any media file from a lost partition or deleted folder and such.
The problem with that app is that its command based so you need to use the command window to use it.

But I used Recuva on it, a program that's supposed to get it all back. Well, it's all back but they are empty files. I tried to get GoldWave to make them well again but it just crashed. I opened one of them in notepad and it just seemed to be full of spaces. I guess I just go back to the source of all those files and see if he's willing to send them all again.

Yeh Tom, not a good habit. Trying to break it.

Well, I tried GoldWave and couldn't get any info or sound. VLC, switch, and foobar gave nothing, also.If I knew more about mp3 files I might be able to fix the appropriate byte and get 'em back. That's a lot of entertainment to loose.


If it weren't for this bad habbit I have of using shift plus delete instead of just plane old delete.

What players do you have?
Vlc used to be able to play even corrupted files for me.
Foobar2000 might work.
Otherwise you might open them in gold wave and re save them and see if that works.
I guess the mp3 headers are damaged.

By accident, I deleted a folder full of music; about 600 mp3 files. I used recuva to get them all back. Well, they came back, the names and sizes look right, but now no audio player will play them.

How can I fix 'em? Ideas? Thanks.
