You need to sync with an itunes library that is empty. This will take all data off ipod.

Or you can 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.

This will restore it to factory settings.

To turn off, hold down the play/pause button.

Computer says songs are there iPod says there not

your ipod will not function properly with windows media player. it may play the music but it won;t get functionality from the ipod.
You have to use iTunes to get your ipod straightened out. Once you mount it on iTunes you will see the music and be able to add music and delete music.

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.

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

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.

Update songs in IPOD

After your iPod shows up in iTunes, highlight your iPod if it doesn't automatically come up. Then on the first tab labeled Summary, under Options click the box that says Manually manage music and videos. Then you can highlight all the songs in your library that you want to add to your iPod and drag them onto the iPod. The files already on your iPod will not be overwritten.

I don't know how to delete items from my ipod.

Before you plug your ipod to your computer go to your song library and you will see little boxes with checks in them they should all be filled up. Then uncheck the songs that you dont want and then connect the ipod to your computer. it will automatically delete the unchecked ones and add ne new ones.. u can also delete songs from itunes and then sync..
