Take off automatic sync and just sync the music you want to using manual sync. Automatic sync has parameters. such as it will only sync the newest or most recently added or your playlists that you select. manual sync you just drag from your library and just drop it into your ipod on the left side of itunes. you can try to do this with automatic sync but next time you plug it in it might dissappear.

    there is actually an option right under automatic sync. it states to sync only checked songs and videos make sure to check this as well. You can try to leave automatic sync on as well and let me know how you made out.

Ipod nano 16GBhow to delete songs from it


you must delete the song on iTunes (or just uncheck it, and tell iPod in the iPod screen on iTunes not to sync checked songs and video) and then sync it for the song to go away. iPod requires iTunes to make changes to your media list.

How do I delete songs from my ipod?


There are two ways to delete music from your iPod. The first is to delete songs in your iTunes library and have iTunes sync your library to your iPod automatically when you plug your iPod into the computer. The second is to manually delete music by resetting the options to a manual setting and deleting music directly from your iPod without affecting the songs in your iTunes library. Follow these steps to delete music from your iPod. Open up iTunes by double clicking on the "iTunes" icon. Go to "Library" on the far left side of the screen. Click "Music" from this list, which will bring up all your music on the main part of the screen. Choose a song you would like to delete from the list and right click on it. Click "Delete" from the drop-down menu that appears to delete your song. Go to the bottom of the left column on the screen to "Playlists." Click on one of your playlists to bring up the list of songs in the list. From there you can delete a song on the list. Connect your iPod to your computer. The iTunes program will automatically sync your iPod to whatever you have changed in your iTunes library as long as it is set to the default settings. Manually Delete Music Connect your iPod to your computer. Open up iTunes. Choose the third option in the "Options" menu called "Manually manage music" by checking the box next to it. It will ask you if you are sure you want to manually manage music on your iPod. Click "OK." Go to "Devices" on the far left column on your screen. You will see your iPod's name directly underneath that with an arrow pointing to the right. Click on the arrow, which will cause it to rotate until it is pointing downward and a drop-down menu will appear with all your songs listed. Click on a category or playlist, which will bring up all the songs in the list in the main section of the screen. Choose on a song listed that you would like to delete and right click on it, then click "Delete" from the drop-down menu that appears to delete your song.

How do I delete duplicate songs on my Nano 4gb Ipod? How do I adjust the volume?


Using iTunes' "Show Duplicate Items" feature, you can locate and manually remove duplicate songs on your iTunes music library. Once the library is cleaned, you need only sync iTunes with your iPod to remove duplicates from your device as well. This guide takes iTunes 12 to remove song duplicates.
delete-duplicate-oxaxc0rwhkhzilrwacqreyis-1-0.jpg
  1. In iTunes, click "View > Show Duplicate Items" in Music module;
  2. Compare the listed song duplicates upon artist, album, date added, genre, play count, size, bit rate, and more to determine which item to keep and which item to remove;
  3. Hold the "Ctrl" key and click each duplicate you wish to delete.
  4. Connect your iPhone 6 to PC, click your iPhone from the device list, hit "Music" and select "Sync" to sync your library using your existing sync settings.
By doing this, you could delete duplicate songs on iPod from your iTunes. But it will eat a lot time of you. To save your time, let's come to the 2nd method - using 3rd-party iTunes cleaner program.

If you do not already have iTunes downloaded you will need to do so before you will be able to add any content to your iPod. To download iTunes (IT"S FREE) go to: http://www.apple.com/downloads/ It is designed to walk you through the install. However if you have any issue's with that part of the proccess let me know for sure.
iTunes includes several options to automatically or manually sync videos to your iPod classic, iPod nano (3rd generation), or iPod (5th generation). Read this article to learn more about these two methods.
Products Affected iTunes, iPod nano (3rd generation), iPod classic, iPod (5th generation)
Syncing videos automatically Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes. Select your iPod in the DEVICES section of the iTunes Source list.

In the main iTunes browser window, select the Music tab. Select the checkbox labeled "Sync music" and verify that the "Include music videos" checkbox is also selected. You have the option to sync all songs and playlists or selected playlists.

Movies can be automatically synced to iPod. Select the Movies tab and select the option to sync all movies, selected movies, or a certain number recent unwatched movies.

TV Shows can be automatically synced to iPod. Select the TV Shows tab and select the option to sync all TV shows or selected ones. You can also determine which episodes are synced based on if they are recent or unwatched.

Video Podcasts can be automatically synced to iPod. Select the Podcasts tab select the option to sync all podcasts or selected ones. You can also determine which episodes are synced based on if they are recent, new or unplayed.

Click Apply and iTunes will begin syncing the content you've selected to your iPod. Tip: You can use the capacity bar at the bottom of the iPod settings window to determine how much free space is available. The size of a playlist can be determined by selecting it and looking at the bottom of the iTunes window.

The iTunes LCD will display the sync progress and notify you when the iPod sync is complete.



To disconnect your iPod, select it in the Source list and click the eject icon.

Automatic syncing for Podcasts, Photos, Contacts, and Games can be individually disabled by selecting each of those tabs. Note: When manually managing iPod, disk use is enabled and iPod must always be manually ejected in iTunes before disconnecting.

Click Apply. To manually add music videos, movies or TV shows to your iPod, choose one of these categories under LIBRARY in the Source list. Select and drag items you want (to choose multiple items, Command-click items on a Mac or Control-click items in Windows), then drag them onto your iPod icon in the Source list. To add a playlist, select it in the Source list and drag it onto your iPod in the same ways as a video or song.
