I have tried several suggestions up to this point and nothing has worked. It is my understanding that everything in My Music, (on my PC) transfers to the iTunes program, either manually or automaticlly. It is also my understanding that if I add or delete music from iTunes, that it will automatically be added or deleted on my iPod Touch, (4th gen). Well, none of this has proven to be true...at best, it is sporatic and frustrating. Any new ideas out there?

    Are you using *Manually Manage* for the iPod? If you are, then you need to manually remove the songs from your iPod. The alternative, which you will probably find eaiser in the long run, is to turn off *manually manage* and let iTunes do all the work for you by also selecting *Sync only ticked songs and videos.*

    Then, to remove a song from the iPod, simply un-tick it in iTunes and Sync the iPod to iTunes.

    Buy doing what?...
    You need to be more specific about what you are trying. "I've tried several suggestions" tells us nothing. You've tried my suggestion (but I made two - dependant upon what you are doing), but you haven't told me how you are managing your iPod, are you using Sync or manually managing? Without that knowledge, everything else is meaningless.

    If you are using Sync, and you have selected *Sync only ticked songs and videos,* then un-ticking a song and then performing a Sync will remove the song. So what are you doing?

    Is the music you want to sync in the playlist that you are syncing, and is it ticked (checked)? If you want to remove it from the iPod, remove it from the playlist and re-sync.

    If the songs are in more than one playlist, and more than one of those playlists are synced with the iPod, then removing the track from one playlist will not remove it from the iPod's library when you look at songs, albums, artists etc. but would just be removed from the playlist. So make sure you remove the song from all the playlists that you sync to the iPod.

    I figured that this was the problem. I had the same song in more than one playlist and thought removing it the one time and sync'ing would have covered all my bases. Thanks for the info and I actually think that was the problem.
