    I assume you're speaking about the UAV Nav Radio system. If so, yes, there is a way - via the hidden screens (aka service menu).
    With the Nav Radio ON and screen raised.. press system hard keys FAV + CONFIG + INFO all at the same time. You get a 'Password Check' screen.
    Enter 3424 and hit OK. The landing page is titled 'Select Diagnosis Items'.
    To delete all music on the HDD in one go, the path is: Select Diagnosis Items > Functional Setup > Download > HDD Music Clear
    To exit-out press the 'Back' softkey.
    (Warning: Be careful in the hidden screens - don't be messing around too much in there!).

    Caddysally, glad the info helped you out.

    Regarding the problem you're having playing some songs, your HDD is likely having difficulty reading some of the music files you've transferred to the drive.
    As info - per the Nav System manual, the types of formats supported by the HDD are:
    . MP3
    . MP3-PRO (with Spectral Band Replication)
    . WMA
    . AAC
    . OGG Vorbis
    . Audible.com

    MP3 Format
    There are guidelines that must be met when creating an MP3 disc or when transferring songs/MP3's to the HDD from a disc or USB device.
    If the guidelines are not met when recording a disc or transferring song files to the HDD, the songs may not play.
    The guidelines are:
    . Sampling rate: 8 kHz, 16 kHz, 22.05 kHz, 24 kHz, 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, and 48 kHz.
    . Bit rates supported: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 144, 160, 192, 224, 256, and 320 kbps. (Note: I'm not 100% sure, but the system may have difficulty dealing with a variable bit rate format).
    . ID3 tag information is displayed by the radio if it is available. The radio will display a filename, song name, artist name, album name, and directory name.
    . Maximum number of folders is 255 with a maximum hierarchy of eight folders.
    . Create a folder structure that makes it easy to find songs while driving. Each folder or album should contain 18 songs or less.
    . It is recommended that there is a maximum of 1024 files on a disc.
    . The files can be recorded on a CD-R or CD-RW with a maximum capacity of 700 MB.
