Question: How to delete previously hidden iCloud songs and videos?
It happened last night. Everything was working fine until then.
Last night it downloaded all music videos I had purchased on to my iPod touch. Including at least three doubles. I don't have videos on my iPod because it takes up my space. That's what my iPad is for. I liked that arrangement. I went through the list trying to delete them. They went away for a few seconds then reappeared!
The same thing happened with songs. I have purchased loads of songs but I don't want them all on my iPod. There's no point to it if I'm not going to listen to them all. And my iPod can only hold a limited amount of songs at a time, otherwise it selects random songs to delete without my knowledge. So for some reason it decided to sync all of the songs from the iCloud on to my iPod. I don't understand why. I don't want to see them on my iPod.
I previously removed their downloads and deleted them from the library. I also hid a bunch of them so they wouldn't be re-downloaded. How do I get rid of them?
The strange thing is my iTunes library on the main computer has the same problem. The songs and videos I previously deleted/hidden were in the library. I can't delete anything it just reappears. My iPad has the same problem. Whilst I have videos on there. I like being the one who decides what videos I want on there and when. I usually download the ones I want and hide the rest until I feel the need for a change.
How do I fix this? Is there a way?
iPod touch, iOS 11.2.6, 6th Generation
