1. Connect your iPod to the computer. You cannot delete files from the iPod directly, and must use the iTunes interface to add and remove content from the iPod. Connect the device to the computer by plugging the long end of the sync cable (which came bundled with your iPod) into the data port of the iPod and then plugging the USB side into your computer.
2. Launch iTunes. Once you have plugged in your iPod, launch the iTunes program. You may need to wait a few moments while the program locates your iPod. You will know that your iPod has been located because a small icon that looks like your iPod will pop up on the left side of the iTunes program.
3. Click on your iPod to show the Device menu and then scroll over to the center pane where the music is. Find the song(s) you wish to delete. Left-click on the song (or album) you want to delete and then right-click.
4. Select "Remove" from the submenu. A message will pop up asking if you only want to remove it from the iPod or whether you want to remove it from the iPod and iTunes. If you want to keep a copy of the file(s) on your computer, select the option that removes the file only from your iPod. Once the file has been removed, go back to the iPod menu and select "Sync" from the center pane. This will remove the song from your iPod.

Plug the ipod into your computer, then on iTunes click on your ipod's icon in the lefthand bar. All of your downloaded songs will show up. Simply select the song and press the delete key on your computer's keyboard.

Create a new playlist and do not add any songs to it. Sync this empty playlist ONLY to the iPod.

SOURCE: songs were erased and replaced

The source of your problem is actually simple to avoid in the future... ITunes music library and settings is based upon the currently logged in user on the computer.

If your sister logged into her login on the computer and then you plug in your IPOD ITunes will update your IPOD with the songs selected in your sisters library.

Just make certain that you are logged into your login on the computer prior to connecting your IPOD.

SOURCE: I can't erase songs etc. fro my ipod classic 160g. I folloed the instructions but did not succeed. Please help.

To erase songs and ect. on your ipod, pull up iTunes. Find the songs and ect. you don't want on your ipod. There should be a box next to it that is checked. Simply unckeck the box. If you never want to see the songs and ect. ever again on your ipod or on iTunes, just right click on the song and ect. and press delete. Then once you plug your ipod up to the computer and sync it, they won't be on your ipod.

I hope this was helpful. Please rate this solution.

SOURCE: i want to erase songs my son's songs from my ipod .

Connect the iPod to the computer.
Open up iTunes.
On the left side bar of iTunes, click on the music icon underneath the icon of the mp3 player (if it doesn't show up, you might have iTunes ver. 7 installed, and you would need to upgrade to ver. 8 to resolve).
Left-click a song you want to delete and then right-click the song once - select "Delete"
Repeat procedure with all songs you want to delete.

You may run into trouble later if auto-sync has been set up for a particular folder...rather than go into this lengthy explanation now, just let me know if the songs that you have just deleted re-appear after you recconect the iPod to the computer.

Good luck!

Itunes on my laptop will not sync to my ipod and has wiped all my music from ipod.


First of all when you sync your ipod with another computer all of your songs, videos and etc will erase by itunes application.Example the first sync was on your desktop using itunes and it was successfully transferred the songs and videos. But you want to add songs from your laptop, so copy the songs to your usb flash drive or external hard drive then paste it to your desktop computer. Then plug your ipod to your desktop computer and run the itunes application then add songs you want to transfer,by syncing or copying the song to your ipod your old songs will not be erase. Have a nice day

My ipod some how erased all my songs, but when i open realplayer it shows all my songs. Realplayer says there are songs on my ipod but itunes says my ipod is blank. Im confused but happy that i still have...


Just use iTunes to manage your iPod. Disable RealPlayer's ability to see your iPod. You probably have songs in the file area rather than in the song area on the iPod. Restore the iPod and use iTunes.

Make sure you have the 'Manually manage music and videos' option checked. Click on the arrow next to your iPod and then click on 'Music' from the drop down. Now you can select which songs you don't want. Right click and delete.

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.


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