I am trying to delete music from my new Ipod Touch to make room for other music. I am using ITunes 10.

On my old Ipod Nano and older ITunes version, I could just right click on a song in the Ipod's section of Itunes and delete that music from the IPod.

Is there a way to perform the same function on an Ipod Touch using ITunes 10?

Thank You!

Ben

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4), Itunes 10

1) Under devices select your iPod Touch

2) You'll see 'Summary', then under options make sure 'manually manage music and videos' is selected.

3) Manually deleting by pressing the delete key shouldn't be a prob now:)

    To do this, you need to hook up your iPod to the Mac or PC you are you using. Makes sure the iPod shows up in iTunes. The, go to your music library, (Not on your iPod). What ever songs you don't want, just delete from you music library, then sync your iPod again, and the songs will be removed off of your iPod

    Ben,

    Do you auto sync or manually manage your music on the Touch? If it's the former, the previous poster's suggestion should work. If it's the latter, then we may need more details, because in that case it should work as you have described attempting in your post. One suggestion I could offer is that the contextual menu may have changed with version 10, so the right-click method may no longer be available. You might have to manually hit delete...not sure. And since I haven't upgraded yet, I cannot test this feature.

    Hi, i selected the option to manually sync stuff(songs etc). Im also experiencing difficulty deleting songs. I used to be able to manually press the delete button on earlier versions of iTunes (before iTunes 10).

    Now it seems i can't delete songs! Or perhaps iTunes 10 just works differently...anyone figured it out yet?

    Awesome! Thanks so much. Made it even easier than the iTunes help section.
