Another symptom that might help the diagnosis...
When viewing the Music contents on the iPad directly, when viewing by Artist, it shows I have "19 songs, 1 album" for ABBA. If I tell iTunes to sync that artist to the iPad, the iPad then tells me "38 songs, 1 album". Removing the artist from the synch list, changes it back to "19 songs, 1 album".
Any advice appreciated...
I cannot delete music from my iPad2. I've gone into iTunes and selected to manually manage my music. When I click on my iPad and then MUSIC, I don't see any songs listed. When I look at my iPad itself under usic there are a ton there. I just want to keep my iPad free of music. I don't need my music on my phone and my iPOD (yes, I still use an iPOD and I still like my music SEPARATE.)
PS: I'm using iTune 126.96.36.199
