To erase delete 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.

HI,  Ipods don't work like normal flash drives.  They can only work by syncing them.  You cannot find or delete the songs from the ipod or from the drive that it appears in.  To remove a song from your ipod you need to go into itunes, and locate the playlist which is being synced to your ipod.  Then find the song and remove it from the playlist.  Then you need to plug in your ipod and press sync again.  Hope this helps

How Do I Download Songs Onto My iPod Nano?
IPod Nanos are portable multimedia players that allow you to playback songs and other content (e.g. video) no matter where you go. They come in a variety of memory sizes such as 4GB or 16GB (gigabytes) and work with iTunes to upload songs. ITunes is the iPod default management program which allows you to upload songs to its library, create playlists and sync music on your iPod quickly and easily. This simple process will have you jamming to your favorite songs in no time.


Downloading to an iPod Nano1Connect your iPod Nano to the computer using the USB cable. Launch iTunes if does not automatically launch. When you launch iTunes, it will display your iPod Nano on the left panel.
2Add music to your iTunes library. Click the "File" button on the top menu and click "Add to Library." Locate the song you want to upload to your player and click "Open" to load it to your program.
3Click the "+" button on the lower left panel to create a playlist. Type a name for the playlist and drag the uploaded file to it. To upload additional songs, repeat Step 2 and drag the uploaded additional songs to the created playlist.
4Drag the songs in the playlist up or down to select the order in which the songs will play.
5Sync your iPod Nano. Click the iPod icon on the left panel after importing songs and adding them to the created playlist. Click the "Music" tab and click "Sync music."

How do you delete songs


iPod files are copy protected so you're not able to copy music from your iPod to someone else's iTunes library. But when it comes to delete files or mp3's from your iPod nano you just need to connect it to any iTunes library on a PC and choose the files from the list "highlighted" and press del or right click mouse command and delete. Just like deleting any document or file from the pc. It couldn't be any easier!

How do you delete a song from an Ipod nano?


Deleting Files,Pictures,etc from MP3 Player
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer" When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there. Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible. Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete" Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want. Be careful and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

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.
