I am a newbie at the iPod touch. Hopefully, a simple question. I have loaded songs onto my iPod touch through the syncing function within iTunes, but as I have loaded my CDs, I now have duplicate songs on the iPod that I want removed from the device, but not from my iTunes library on my PC.

Within my iTunes page, my iPod DOES appear under my attached devices, but when I click on the > next to my device name to expand my Music, all of my songs are grey (Songs, play lists,everything) and I can not sort, delete, or move any of the songs there. My library Music is fine. How do I enable my editing of my iPod through iTunes. Please help me.

Thank you in advance!!

    they are greyed out because your itunes is set to automatically sync. if you check the manage manually button you will be able to delete them.
    does that mean you have duplicates in your itunes library as well?

    You remove the same way you put them on. If you did this via sync, then you delete via the sync.

    If you sync using playlists, then you remove the song from the playlist then sync.

    If you sync checked music, then uncheck the music and sync.

    You can also manually manage music. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1535

    no problem tom. thought it's really just lucky that i came on so quickly! people on here sometimes get upset if they don't get speedy responses, i always try to explain that these are world-wide user forums, and there are time-differences at work, patience is sometimes necessary!

    glad you're problem is sorted.
