Where do i turn off manually add songs?

Friend added songs on my ipod nano by doing it manually from his computer. Now when I go to my computer I want to erase those songs and be updated on my itunes. It will not automatically update any more. I have added new songs and deleted some. I think he may have switched to manual and i dont know where to turn off! Please help!

On the main ipod home page in itunes where it shows you how much memory is taken up, there will be four check boxes with word written next to it. There will be one that says manually manage files and it should be checked. Click it to uncheck it and it will automatically sync with itunes every time you plug the ipod into the computer so all new files and stuff will be sync onto your ipod without you having to do anythoing with it.

The problem is, i want to put music from my laptop onto my apple ipod 4GB a1051, how do i do that please?


The following information has come directly from the apple support web site.

Adding Content Automatically or Manually
There are two ways to add content to iPod nano: ? Automatic syncing: When you connect iPod nano to your computer, iPod nano is automatically updated to match the items in your iTunes library. You can sync all your songs, playlists, videos, and podcasts, or, if your entire iTunes library doesn’t fit on iPod nano, you can sync only selected items. You can sync iPod nano automatically with only one computer at a time. ? Manually managing iPod nano: When you connect iPod nano, you can drag items individually to iPod nano and delete them individually from iPod nano. You can add songs from more than one computer without erasing songs from iPod nano. When you manage music yourself, you must always eject iPod nano from iTunes before you disconnect it.

The following URL will bring you to the iPod Nano manual. For more information on setting up you iPod see chapter 2: Setting up iPod Nano

http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iPod_nano_5th_gen_UserGuide.pdf

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

Your iPod syncs the songs in your iTunes library every time you plug it into your computer, adding/removing songs is only a matter of adding/deleting them from your library and re-syncing your iPod.
