hey all, I recently bought a Nokia 6235. I was playing around today and putting some songs (MP3's) onto it to use as ringtones, from my computer using infrared. But, the phone battery went flat just before the transfer was complete, and the file didnt make it onto the phone (obviously). But, when I go to the gallery of the phone, it says that 3.2meg of space is being used up by the music folder, even though that the music folder (which is where I was putting the MP3) is empty. I guessing this has something to do with the corrupt file, and the phone thinking it is there when it isnt, or something like that. Does anyone know how I can fix this, maybe do a complete phone reset or something. I did a factory settings reset, to no avail. So any other ideas? thanks

satellitesam: Have you tried to delete the Folder??

yes I have, but it keeps coming up with an error saying the folder is read only (and the delete option is greyed out)...

sounds to me like it needs to be re flashed, You will need to take ie back to the shop and get them to sent it away unless you find a shop who has someone old school who can do it there and then

the telecom stores generally dont reflash phones in house, they send to telegistics.
