Download history and copy history?

It seems like the files that im cancelling when copying mp3 files to my mp3 player is stored in some kind of history and it resumes when I try to copy the same files again. How do i disable that and where does the history thing save itself? I keep ending up with uncompleted files in my usb player beacouse all the programs keeps freezing!!! ah, its so frustrating.

That entirely depends on how you copy the files. If you, say, mount the mp3 player and use cp, there should be no history (except the command history in ~/.bash_history).

It really depends--if you describe the process you use to copy the data, we might know the application and know and/or figure out the answer.

You can do yourself a big favor--saving yourself the time spent reading `dud' replies like mine--by reading `Smart Questions' by ESR. Google is your friend.

By the way, some thing that convinces me that I'm using a debian system:
  • I got the installer from (how did you install your distro?)
  • On my VTs (Ctrl-Alt-F1 through F6), it says `Debian GNU/Linux' (one can change that in /etc/issue)--what does your issue say?
  • The file /etc/debian_version exists--does it exist on your machine?
