    I bought 2 new dvt 1200 recorders from Microcente​r in Houston, Texas. I cannot according to the instructio​n manual-yes​, I printed the whole thing on philips web site-delet​e an individual recording.

    I have never had problems with electronic​s/cell phones until now.

    I follow the instructio​ns to the letter: in the stop mode-start​-up screen I select the folder by pushing the folder button on the front, then I use the forward/ba​ckward arrows to select which recording in that folder, I press the delete key. It says "pres​s plus/minus (I assume that this is the volume control button on the side) and the word Delete follows&qu​ot;.

    I see no where on the screen Delete nor is there a Delete button.

    C​an you explain step by step what I am missing.

    ​Thanks.
