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. How to Delete Music from iPod
I think you are trying to sync with a different library than your own original library that you synced your ipod before. OR the original songs that are in your ipod are no longer in your library. There is a option that you could sync songs manually.
1. Connect your iPod
2. Start iTunes
3. Click on your iPod
4. Check option that says Manually sync songs
Now you can sync your music without deleting the old songs. I hope
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.
In iTunes, click "View > Show Duplicate Items" in Music module;
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;
Hold the "Ctrl" key and click each duplicate you wish to delete.
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.
hook the ipod up to itunes and when it opens to the page that you see the picture of the ipod. put a check mark next to the automatically sync my ipod. However, if you have other song on your ipod that are not in your library they will be delete during the sync. No here is the best way to do it. put a check next to manage music manually, instead of syncing it. find the music file folder on your computer, open it up and minimize it. open itunes and click on music under your ipod. now maximized your music folder and drag the songs into the white area with all the lines. the songs will load onto your ipod. do only about 100 or so at a time to avoid problems. to get multiple song click on the top song, and press shift and highlight the last song this will mark all songs in between to be moved. now drag the highlighted songs and watch them load.
find the songs u dont want anymore and uncheck them in itunes and find the songs u want to add and check them, now go to itunes settings and change the syncing options to sync only checked items and then sync the ipod and the stuff u want gone will be gone a the stuff u want there will be there. :)
You need to re-sync it to your library on your computer to move/delete songs off your iPod.
To have greater control, you can set your sync settings (one of the tabs available under your iPod in iTunes). You can create a playlist (you can name it whatever) and move the songs you want to it. Then, under your sync settings, tell it to sync just that playlist. This will allow you to chose what songs you want to on your iPod, instead of your whole library. To get any changes you make to the playlist to take effect, you'll have to re-sync but that should do it.
This is also helpful if you store all your music on your computer because your iPod may not be able to hold everything (which is the major reason I do this).
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.
It sounds like you have your IPOD set to automatically sync to your itunes library instead of being set to manually select the songs. If you have it set to automatically sync then anytime you plug your ipod in with itunes open then only the songs that are in your Itunes library will be on your IPOD after you disconnect it from the computer. If you would have set it to manually sync then you would have had to choose which songs to put on your IPOD and also which to take off. If you had it set to automatically sync then I am sorry to inform you, but your songs are gone from your IPOD (and if you have it set to delete the song from the computer as well as the library then the song is gone from your laptop too)
