There are two ways to delete music from your iPod. The first is to delete songs in your iTunes library and have iTunes sync your library to your iPod automatically when you plug your iPod into the computer. The second is to manually delete music by resetting the options to a manual setting and deleting music directly from your iPod without affecting the songs in your iTunes library. Follow these steps to delete music from your iPod. Open up iTunes by double clicking on the "iTunes" icon. Go to "Library" on the far left side of the screen. Click "Music" from this list, which will bring up all your music on the main part of the screen. Choose a song you would like to delete from the list and right click on it. Click "Delete" from the drop-down menu that appears to delete your song. Go to the bottom of the left column on the screen to "Playlists." Click on one of your playlists to bring up the list of songs in the list. From there you can delete a song on the list. Connect your iPod to your computer. The iTunes program will automatically sync your iPod to whatever you have changed in your iTunes library as long as it is set to the default settings. Manually Delete Music Connect your iPod to your computer. Open up iTunes. Choose the third option in the "Options" menu called "Manually manage music" by checking the box next to it. It will ask you if you are sure you want to manually manage music on your iPod. Click "OK." Go to "Devices" on the far left column on your screen. You will see your iPod's name directly underneath that with an arrow pointing to the right. Click on the arrow, which will cause it to rotate until it is pointing downward and a drop-down menu will appear with all your songs listed. Click on a category or playlist, which will bring up all the songs in the list in the main section of the screen. Choose on a song listed that you would like to delete and right click on it, then click "Delete" from the drop-down menu that appears to delete your song.
The first way is uncheck the songs you want to delete on iTunes and then sync iTunes with ipod again, then the songs you want to delete will lose from iPod.
The second way is use leawo iTransfer to delete songs from iPod, the way is connect iPod to leawo iTransfer, then right click on the music you want to delete from iPod on leawo iTransfer to choose "Delete", then the music will be deleted soon. However, this tool can only work on Windows computer.
if your father deleted your song library then you will have to download your music again. same with your apps if your restore all that will do is load a new copy of your ipod software in the ipod. it won't help with getting your songs back it will help with removing the password lock.
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.
Connect iPod to computer.
Open up iTunes.
Click on the icon on the left sidebar of iTunes that says "iPod Nano".
Click on the Music tab.
You will notice that at least one folder has been set to "Sync music" - the songs in these folders will be automatically loaded onto your iPod everytime you connect it to your computer. I would suggest separating the music folders that you use and the folders that your wife uses on your computer itself. Then, you can sync only the songs in your own personal folder.
Alternatively, you can disable the "Sync Music" option altogether by unchecking the box.
Whichever choice you make, you will now need to manually go in and delete the songs you don't want.
You can do this by clicking on the Music icon underneath the iPod Nano icon on the left sidebar of iTunes. Find a song you no longer want on your iPod, right-click the song, and select delete.
