The songs are shaded and can't be selected or deleted because you have to use the synch feature to add or delete anything from Iphone. . When you are in iTunes with the phone plugged in, select the phone in the left hand column. Your phone synch features will appear in the iTunes browser window. Click on the music tab and you will be able to select which playlists are copied or deleted from the phone.

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.

How to set up my iphone 3gs after downloading itunes onto my computer


Connect your phone to your computer.

iTunes should open automatically, if it doesn't start iTunes.

iTunes will recognize your phone and sync.

On the left side of the iTunes windows, click and highlight your phone

Next, click on the "music" tab and choose the option for downloading song (sync entire music library, sync selected songs, etc).

Click the 'sync' button on the lower right to sync the songs to your phone.

After syncing, click the small arrow next to your phone's name to eject your phone...it is now safe to unplug your phone from your computer.

If you want to delete music from iPhone, you can take fully advantage of iTunes. After you purchased songs in iTunes Store on iPhone, your iTunes will also save the purchase history, so you don't have to worry about losing the purchased music files. When you connect iPhone to computer with USB cable, iTunes will launch automatically and recognize your iPhone. You can create a new playlist which contains only the music you need, and then sync it to your iPhone. By doing this, you can remove the unwanted music from iPhone.

How do i transfer Music to my Iphone from my computer, Once plugged into the computer the songs that are currently in the iphone are unhighlighted and cannot move songs to or from the iphone.. Please help


You need to create a playlist for the iPhone. This isn't intuitive and I don't know why it's this way. It works great, there just isn't anything explaining what to do. This seems to snag Windows users the most. Maybe Mac users are already used to doing things this way? I don't know.

Below is a picture of my iTunes. Look down in the lower-left corner and see that my playlist is highlighted. At the very bottom-left corner you can click the plus sign to create a new playlist. Then drag all of the music you want to the playlist. Finally, in the music tab of your iPhone, make sure you click the playlist you just made to sync all music on that list to your phone.

This will do the trick.
