Default getting 0x80004005 error

I can delete any file on a DVR except folders. All the files in all folders are deleted. I have Vista 32-bit. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The error you are getting means access denied, but you knew that. Here are a couple of ideas...

Default Thank you but I am still having the problem

I went into the links you sent me & I tried several of the potential fixes. But nothing worked. Do you have any other ideas?

Maybe this one will help. If not maybe you can describe your configuration more in detail so we can understand the hardware/software involved.

I insert a folder onto my DVR RW disk with files. When I try to delete the folder I get error: "0x80004005".

When I go into the folder all the files are deleted but the main folder is still there.

If there are sub-folders within the main folder the files under each sub-folder are deleted but the sub-folders as well as the main folder remain on the disk.

When you initially did the dvr format, did you select usb format or cd/dvd format?

This problem began about 3 weeks ago.

Prior to that I did not have a problem deleting folders from my DVR drive. Also I forgot to mention that I have no problem deleting folders on my C: drive.

A unconventional method I have used in the past is booting into my Linux system (I had and still have dual booting setup on my computer) and deleting the files while in Linux. Not sure if this can be done using a Linux live CD due to permission problems.

Arromanelli, do you have this issue on multiple disks or just one?
