    Go to iTunes and if you have checked off, "Sync only checked songs and videos" simply just uncheck the songs and resync. If you don't then you have to do so if you want to delete songs. You can't delete songs directly from the nano.

    If you are using the Manually manage music [and videos] setting, select iPod in the iTunes sidebar, under DEVICES.  Click the toggle (small triangle) to the left of the iPod, to drop down the iPod's content list indented under the iPod.  Click on Music there.


    The list of songs on the iPod is shown to the right.  Select the song you want to remove on that list, and press Delete on keyboard.  You can do this for one song, a selection of songs, or the entire list (Select All).


    NOTE:  If the iTunes sidebar is hidden, from the menu bar, under View, select Show Sidebar.


    If you are using automatic syncing, please post back.

    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.
