Re: i pod shuffle

Hello: I just purchased a 2nd generation shuffle for my husband. I loaded all his music he had from Itunes (his old IPod quit working). Now he says he wants the classic shuffle. We have two laptops so his music is on 1 and my music from my Ipod classic is on mine. I have purchased an Ipod classic for him and will be setting that up. My question is how do I delete his music from the shuffle and set it up under my name on my computer?

I cadownload from computer to my i pod shuffle

You have to download iTunes ( ) then when you download it open it and go to iTunes store on the left side (you'll see it ) and click it then you just open an account (when ur in the iTunes store on the upper right side you'll see sing in and sign up so click sign up) and then after that u just type in the song in the search section and you'll see a bunch of song names once u find the one u want just click buy song and you'll have it in your library automatically.

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.

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

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!

maybe...perhaps try changing your itunes setting

"manually update ipod" if it is set to autosync then all tunes in the library which are registered as being on the pod will automatically update. each time you connect the pod the itunes sw will update the pod from the library.

when the pod is connected and auto sync is active if you delete a tune from the lib it will update the pod and delete the same tune.

Songs deleted, but empty space and song info. still remain

Get yourself anapod from Redchair software, this works on older PC's and you just drag and drop songs onto your ipod.Its also very easy to delete tracks aswell.Anapod supports adding and deleting photos onto the ipod.

How to delete music off of the ipod shuffle?

You can either do a restore:
Connect to your computer and open itunes.
When you first open itunes you should be in "Devices"
Make sure you're in the "Summary" tab and you will have a button that says "Restore"
Click that and it will do the rest.

Sync with an itunes library that has no files on it, this will also remove the files from your ipod.
