Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

I have the iPod software loaded on my computer. It works fine. My question is if I delete something from the "library", why is it not removed from my iPod? How do I get it off my iPod?

    I figured it out. I had to go into the music tab under my iPod in the iTunes screen and sync music. This deletes anything on the iPod that is not in iTunes and puts music I have in iTunes on the iPod.

Ok this is easy. :)
when you plug your ipod into your computer it will ask you if you want to "tranfer purchases" say no.
and if that still doesnt work, try not just deleteing it, but un-checking the item, pluging in the ipod, then deleting it.
hope i helped :)

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've never used my new ipod Nano. How do I load songs and albums from itunes


You'll need iTunes - the software that Apple has developed to do this sort of thing. Get it at:

http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Once you've downloaded and installed that, open it up.

Now, you have two options as to how you're going to "sync" your iPod. ("Sync" means synchronisation - loading the music onto your iPod). There are two ways, automatically and manually.

Automatically is where you have your music library on your computer. When you plug in your iPod, the computer checks the music library on your iPod and does what it has to do to make the iPod's music library identical to the one on the computer, whether this means deleting things off the iPod or copying music over. This is great if you just want to manage one set of music. You just manage it on your computer, then when you plug your iPod in you don't have to worry about it - the computer just does it. This is the simpler option.

However, this means you need to keep a copy of all your music on your computer - and you can't plug your iPod into any other computer. That's why you can manually manage your iPod. When you manually manage your iPod you drag and drop the music you want on to it - the computer DOESN'T do it automatically. This is good if you don't have much room on your computer, so you can't keep a copy of the music - or if you want to get music off more than one computer.

Plug your iPod in to the USB port of your computer. Follow any prompts that come up you should be presented with a screen under "Devices > Your iPod" (on the left hand side of the screen) that shows your iPod and some information about it (software version, how much space you've used, etc.)

If you decide to manaully manage your iPod, then there's a tick box towards the bottom of the screen with "Manually Manage my Music". Obviously, tick that if you want to do so.

If you choose to manually manage your music, then you'll need to drag music from wherever (My Computer or from your iTunes library) onto the icon for your iPod. However, if you choose to automatically manage your iPod then sort out your music libray and add the music you want. Then, go to the "File" menu and hit "Sync iPod". The computer also does this automatically whenever you plug the iPod in.

Hope all that helps!

IPOD Shuffle deletes songs if I delete them from the music library in Itunes


You have to keep all the songs that you want on your iPod on your computer, otherwise you will get this problem. So if you want song "a" on your iPod it must also be in your iTunes library at all times unless you don't want it on your iPod anymore
