How to delete tracks from your iPod

ITunes offers several ways to manage the media on your iPod as smooth as possible. One way it does this is to automatically synchronize music from your iPod with your library. The problem with this though, is that you cannot remove songs from your iPod without removing them from your iTunes library. If you run out of space, or get bored with the selection of songs on your iPod, you can delete tracks from it by a small change in your synchronization settings.


1. Connect your iPod to your computer using the supplied USB cable. iTunes opens automatically. If not, open your PC "Start" menu.


2. Click the name of your iPod in "Devices" list on the left side of iTunes to the iPod the summary screen.


3. Click the "Manually manage music and videos" box; click "Apply" at the bottom of the screen.


4. Click the "Music" option in your iPod on the left to the music on your iPod screen.


5. Right-click on the track you want to delete from your iPod, and select Delete from the menu that appears.


6. Click the eject icon next to your iPod in the sidebar when you are finished removing the tracks you want, and then you can control your iPod from your PC.

I have a classic ipod ,somehow I managed to put all the music in my Itunes into my ipod ,My Itunes is now empty , and when I turn my ipod on , there is no music to play ? yet my gig usage says there is , I think the music is hidden somewhere in my Ipod ? make any sense to you ?


You probably have "automatically syn my music to ipod" option turned on. That means, whenever you plug it in, the ipod synchronizes with your itunes library. If you have no music in your library, the ipod will delete all the songs on its hard drive. Be sure to turn this option off in the future.
