    There is a setting to delete the mp3 files in the music options.
    See the attatched screenshot.
    Attached Files
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      That option to delete will only delete the file if you press and hold the media item down in music or use the delete current playing media function. Media files will never be deleted when clearing the music index.

      Are you running 1.0.5.4? There is a bug in 1.0.5.3 and earlier where by only half of your media items are removed when you clear the music index. 1.0.5.4 fixes this. Also if you clear all music from your media collection in windows media player, it will no longer show up in StreetDeck.

          Make what easier? 1.0.5.4 already fixed the problem of not clearing out the entire library?

            Well pressing and holding the media works if your on a fly but i have the up to date SD and i was having that problem. and If i wanted to delete large sections of music IE a whole artist or a album that could be anywere from 15 songs to a 100. so i guess its just time consuming to delete the media....

            From what i see SD will let you delete all of the media or a select few

              Well you can actually only physically delete a single media file at a time. Every other delete, just removes it from the index which actually leaves the file intact.

              I doubt the ability to delete multiple files easily will ever become a core part of StreetDeck if for no other reason then for the fact that someone would end up trashing thier entire media collection if they don't know what they are doing.

              Part of the media player interface is being exposed in verison 1.0.5.5 and a DigitalMod that does just that should then be possible when its released though.

                I would hope that all of us are smart enough to have backup copies of our music libary. Granted the carcomp work well its still not the Ideal place for a comp and i would bet that more errors happen in the car comp then say my network harddrive.
