Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I got a new I pod nano chromatic and I want to be able to sync it manually so that I can delete music on my computer without deleting it from my I pod. It said in the manual that it has an automatic sync meaning whatever i do to my list it does on my I pod. I can not seem to figure out how to change it to manual sync. the instructions that it gives in the manual are not clear and i do not see those options on the i tunes screen.

    So does this mean that if I add a song to my I pod and then delete it on my I tunes list the next time I hook up my I pod to my computer that song will be deleted on my I pod as well? I dont want that, but I dont want to keep a lot of music files on my computer as well.

    and if I can not do this manually does this mean that every song on my computer will be added to my I tunes list automatically?

You cant actually do it manually. You have to use itunes and you can just put one song on that you like then delete it (thats the only prob with apple ipod).

Sorry

If you have any questions plese dont hesitate to ask

    That is correct it is really painful i know. But if you add all your songs to your your ipod and just put the ones you want in a folder that could work.



    And itunes even change you sound settings on your ipod to what you have on your computer and vise versa. so if you set bass boost on your ipod then itunes will make its sound settings to bass boost.



    So sorry but you have to do it the way you have been doing it its the down side to ipod



    If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask

I bought an ipod 2gig nano with 117 songs downloaded. I like maybe 30. how can I delete the other songs?


Generally speaking, you'll clean up your iPod with iTunes to erase unwanted songs and add new songs. You have two ways to delete music from iPod with iTunes, and they can be helpful when you want to get rid of the unwanted songs. iTunes provides automatic and manual methods to help you manage the songs in your device. When you are using the automatic way to manage iPod music, every time you connect iPod to computer with USB cable, your iPod will sync with iTunes Music library. If you have your iTunes Music library organized, you can delete unwanted music from iPod with this easy method. If you want to manually edit your iPod music, you can check Prevent iPods, iPhones and iPads from syncing automatically in iTunes by clicking Edit > Preferences > Devices. Then you can manually sync the songs and playlists to your iPod with iTunes.

I want to erase music of my ipod nano


Go to itunes and click on a song that you want to delete and press the delete button on your keyboard and it will ask you if you are sure you want to delete this song from all playlists and off the ipod and click yes and it will delete. Unfortunately, it will not let you delete it from the ipod menu without connecting it to a computer.

Cant delete songs off my ipod


Two possible solutions:

Solution 1. Go to iTunes, go to Edit, Select All, go to Edit once again, select Delete. This will clear your whole music library. Connect you iPod and let it sync. It will delete everything in your iPod. The problem with this is that it will delete all your music in iTunes as well so you better back it up elsewhere.

Solution 2. Go to iTunes, connect your iPod, let it sync. Do not disconnect your iPod. On the left hand side of the screen you will see "Library", "Store", "Devices", etc. Go to "Devices" and you will see your iPod's name there. Click on it and you will see on the right hand side of your screen your iPod, with some menus tabs. On the first tab (Summary), make sure that "Sync only checked songs" is activated. Then go to the second tab ("Music"). Make sure "Sync music" is activated and "Selected playlists" is also activated. Make sure NONE of the playlists is activated. At the bottom right hand side of the scree there is a button that says "Sync". Press it and it will sync no songs into your iPod. That should clear the songs but leave the contents in iTunes intact. If you want to put some playlists in your iPod, then check only those and only those will be added to your iPod.

Hope this helps.

Grays songs in ipod when connected to Computer


You need to set your iPod to update manually, instead of syncing automatically when you plug it into the computer.

To do this, plug your iPod into your computer, and on the iPod info screen that pops up in iTunes when your iPod is connected, click "Manually Manage Files."
You'll now have to click and drag your songs from your library to your iPod, but now you can also play songs on your computer directly from your iPod and delete songs from your library without deleting them from your iPod at the same time.

Hope this helped!

Hi,

Unfortunately it's not quite that simple.

Delete all the music youve just put on there. Then download iTunes, add all your music to its library then plug your ipod in, it will then sync automatically.

Hope that helps.
