Hi,

First, make sure you're actually in the music library listing, and not in a particular playlist.

Then, if you're in Windows, make sure you're hitting the "delete" key and not the "backspace" key.
Your other option is to right click on the item you want to delete, then select "Delete" from the list of options.

If you're on a Mac, you'll need to hit the function key (fn) at the same time as the "delete" key.
Or, you can press Ctrl while clicking the mouse on the song you want to delete, then select "delete."

Let me know if these options don't work for you!

Delete Duplicates Songs on iTunes, Repair Music Info on Mac


If your iTunes application on Mac have updated to Version 11+, you can use the method Apple supported to show all duplicate items in your iTunes library. From the menu at the top of your computer screen, choose View > Show Duplicate Items. And then manually delete unwanted ones. Or if you are a Windows user, Hold down the Control and B keys on your keyboard to open the iTunes menu bar. Choose View > Show Duplicate Items.


Matches are based on the song name and artist. If you have multiple versions of the same song (for example, live and studio versions, or versions from different albums), hold the Alt or Option key (Mac) or the Shift key (Windows) and choose View > Show Exact Duplicate Items. This will show only the duplicate songs that have the same name, artist, and album. The information in the other columns, such as Time, Release Date, or Genre, can also help you determine which item to keep and which to remove. For example, the Plays column shows which version of the song you've listened to more.

Cyclic redundancy error when copying backed up files into Itunes


Files with cyclic redundancy errors means these files are corrupted and cannot be copied. Since you cannot copy these files from your faulty hard disk again then these songs are lost and you need to download them again.

The file "iTunes Library" cannot


iTunes.exe has been set to run in compatibility mode for an older version of Windows. For best result, turn off compatibility mode of iTunes before you open it.

> 1. Make sure iTunes isn't running.
2. Click Start, type regedit, then press Enter.
3. Navigate to this Registry location:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers
4; Its better you clean/repair Windows registry with RegInOut.
4. Look in the main pane for a key that refers to iTunes. If you find one, delete it, then exit the Registry.
5. Start iTunes. The offending message should be gone!

I want remove songs from my ipod touch 8g but the manual did not say


The following describes how to delete data from your iPod touch. With the iPod touch connected to your computer, select it in the iTunes sidebar, then click its disclosure triangle to show the contents. Select a content area, such as Music or Movies, then select the items you want to remove. Once the item is selected press the Delete key on the keyboard. Remember removing items from the iPod doesn't delete it from your iTunes library.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.

How do I delete content


The following information has been pulled directly form the iPod Touch manual.

Remove items from iPod touch: With iPod touch connected to your computer, select iPod touch in the iTunes sidebar, and click its disclosure triangle to show contents. Select a content area, such as Music or Movies, then select the items you want to delete and press the Delete key on the keyboard.
Removing an item from iPod touch doesn’t delete it from your iTunes library.

You can find the manual located at the following URL. I found the information you requested in chapter 4.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.

Can't delete from itunes


Under the itunes help library it says to select the item and then press the delete key. "when you delete an item from your library (remove it from the iTunes window) you are asked whether to keep it on your hard disk (of wherever it is stored) or delete it from your computer." it also states that you might not be able to remove songs from Smart Playlist that has "live updating" turned on, because the playlist is continually updated. I hope this helps.
