You need to put the iPod into manual mode to edit the files.

Right click on your iPod when it's connected and select iPod Options, you can change it to manual from there. Just bear in mind that doing this will stop the iPod from updating with iTunes.

When the iPod is set to Auto the songs it contains are grayed out.




iPod Classic 80 GB, Black / iPod Touch 32 GB
iTunes AAC 128 VBR / Etymotic ER 6i
iMac 2.4 GHz / Macbook 2.4 GHz
