Remove songs from an Ipod is easy, and a few steps are listed below which will walk you through it. It is often an advantage to delete songs from an Ipod, as you may have found a better MP3 or other music file to add, or you may have a music song that is "cut off" at the end and need to replace it. No need wasting extra space on your Ipod, or keeping an incomplete song, even though Ipods contain many gigs of storage. The steps are also the same whether you have a nano, mini, etc., it does not matter. First off, connect your Ipod and then make sure ITunes is open on your computer. I prefer to have the "manual" Ipod setting (which means I will simply choose what I delete, choose what I add, etc., to me this is easiest, so that is the option I will list). On ITunes, click edit at the top, then choose preferences, then choose the "Ipod" tab, then choose the "music" tab within that. Now make sure the option is chosen for "manually manage songs and playlists", you will see it on the screen, click ok when done so this option is saved. This simply means you are now ready to manually delete any music from your Ipod, etc. Almost done, now simply click the "Owners Ipod" option on the left window to display your Ipod music songs, highlight any songs in the list and press your delete key. Thats it, this will delete them from your Ipod and you can then add files as you wish.

Note that if you do not see an ipod tab on itunes as specified above, then you are running a newer version of Itunes and deleting songs is easier now. Just click the "owners ipod" (or whatever name you gave your ipod, by default it will say owners ipod), and then your music titles show on the right hand side. This is the list of songs and music on your ipod, it is NOT the song list on your computer. Now just click any song once to highlight it and press the delete key, and the song will be deleted, this removes it from your ipod. You no longer have to set the manual option and that option is gone, by default you are basically in manual mode already so the process is very easy. Don't worry about the song being deleted from your computer, as that cannot happen. Even deleting the song from your ITunes list will not remove the song on your computer.
