HI;

There are two different ways to delete songs or playlists and revise your iPod with iTunes. You can do this automatically or manually, whatever type of technique you may choose depends on the preferences that you set up in iTunes. Unless the settings are in iTunes, it will automatically update the iPod when you go to hook it up to your computer after you have followed the steps to delete songs and playlists automatically. If you cannot do this, you should follow the instructions for doing it the manual way.

There is a setting that can be set so that the iPod syncing preference is in iTunes. To do this, you need to connect the iPod to the computer. Open iTunes and select iPod in iTunes source list. Press the option button in far right bottom corner. The option button won't appear if the iPod was not selected in the step from above. iPod preference window appears. Click to select automatic option or manual update option. If the select "Automatically Update Selected Playlist Only" option is chosen, make sure playlist that you want to delete from your iPod is not selected.

You can have songs or playlists automatically deleted. Open up your iTunes. Pick a song or playlist that you would want to delete from your iPod. Then from the edit menu, choose clear or press the delete key. If a dialog box appears pres yes. Song or playlist should be deleted from iTunes. If the connection from the iPod to the computer chooses to update the songs on your iPod from file menu or the connection from your iPod to the connection to your iTunes will automatically revise iPod and delete songs or playlist that was deleted from above.

When you are ready to delete songs or playlist manually, open iTunes. Select iPod in source list. Choose song or playlist you would want to delete from iPod. Deleting playlist or a song from playlist will now get rid of song from iPod.

Next go to edit menu, choose clear or press delete. Press, "yes" if dialog box appears. The song or playlist should be deleted from the iPod. Manually deleting songs or playlists from iPod you do not want to delete a song or playlist from iTunes. Deleting a song from playlist will not eliminate song from iPod. Choose iPod in iTunes source list and find song that you would like to delete.

Do not format iPod to erase songs or playlists. Do not use any sort of disk utility programs like Disk Utility, Drive Setup or Windows Explorer to wipe out iPod. Wiping out songs this way can hinder the iPods music playing capabilities and you may have to revise or reset your iPod to get it to work properly again.

To reset iPod with Scroll Wheel and iPod with Touch Wheel:

Connect iPod to power adaptor and plug into an outlet or connect iPod to Mac's built in FireWire port.

Press the Hold switch on & off.

For about 6 to 10 seconds press and hold Play/Pause and the menu button until the Apple logo can be seen on the screen. Repeat these steps if necessary.

To reset iPod with Circle Wheel:

Connect iPod to power adaptor and plug into an outlet.

Press the Hold switch on & off.

For about 6 to 10 seconds press and hold play/pause and the menu button until the Apple log can be seen on the screen. Repeat these steps if necessary.

To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel:

Press the Hold switch on and off.

Press and hold for about 6 to 10 seconds the menu and select buttons until the Apple logo appears on the display screen.

With all the tips from above, your iPod will have plenty of free space and work like new.


hope this helps you................

SOURCE: 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

How do i delete all songs on ipod shuffle and then reload? I want to empty it and start over as if new


Generally speaking, people will clean up their iPod with iTunes to erase the old songs and add new songs. iPod users have two ways to delete music from iPod with iTunes, and they can be helpful when iPod users want to get rid of the unwanted songs. iTunes provides automatic and manual methods to help iPod users manage the songs in their devices. 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.
