Cannot create/delete playlists for Ipod 5th gen on Itunes

Hi just got a new Ipod! For some reason when I click the add playlist button on the bottom left of Itunes when my new Ipod is in nothing happens! Also I cannot seem to delete the playlists that automatically come with the Ipod like 90's music, classical music, music videos ect...

I know it's not my Itunes because my 4th generation works fine. How can I solve this?

Is this new iPod set to "Manually Manage" or is it set to "Auto Sync"?

Must be Manually Manage to manually create/delete stuff on the iPod.

Click on the iPod in iTunes, then put a check mark next to Manually Manage Music and Videos and then click Apply.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
