I downloaded a couple of videos and when I went to delete them, they are still there. The space was freed up and the video won't play now but it still shows up in my videos. Can somebody help please?

Re: video won't delete

Hi and welcome to the forums! Smiley Happy

A couple of places for you to visit: Blackberry 101     Tips & Tricks


Go to media-explore-find & select the video to remove-BB menu button-delete.  Since videos are large it may take some time to delete them.  Wait for the device to come back to the list of videos screen before removing battery.  A battery pull after a deletion can help to restart your device and reallocate device memory to show the video has been removed.


Let us know how it goes.


Happy to have you here! Smiley Very Happy
