    Default Video files wont delete

    Gday!
    Got myself a cheap flash drive video camera from K Mart and have found that the video files won't delete from the computer!
    It says, "cannot delete file, in use by another person or program, close any programs that may be using this folder."
    Got me stuffed, I've got no programs open.
    Windows XP problem?
    Cheap camera problem?
    Tried re booting!
    Not game to put any more video files on the puter till I sort this out!
    Had no issues with other cameras over the years

    Did the camera come with a program, I had a problem when I first used MTS files, when I went to the file to delete it, it froze the computer, it would however delete from the program that came with the camera. but as I added codecs and updated my editing programs it seems to have solved it, just came to the conclusion widows didn't recognize the file, so bombed out,

    Hi wanderer! It turns out that there was a program called "smart sound" running, and it was linked to the MOV files...
    I opened the task manager and ended that program and all's well, so far.
    I also downloaded a program called"unlocker" which can be used to delete files without having to close any program!
    Puters, its never ending!

    Make sure all players and video apps are shut - some progs ' hang on ' to files even when they appear not to be or maybe are only in the background.
