In iTunes, locate the song on the iPod and hit "delete" on you keyboard (you may be able to right click as well). Now you have to turn of Auto-Synch and manually update your iPod, otherwise Auto-Synch will just put it on there again....

My preference is to use the checkboxes. See, I like to use Auto-Sync and my library is bigger than my ipod will hold.

Just check all songs that should be on your iPod. On the iPod options page make sure "Only Update Checked Songs" is checked.

Unchecked songs will be deleted from the iPod on next sync but they remain in itunes.

Thanks everyone. I've implemented the checkbox approach and it works great. Thanks again.

Synching w checkboxes

I have and ipod classic and autosync, however, when I uncheck the checkboxes, the songs are still in my ipod...any suggestions? I have also seen in other forums that if you change from auto sync to manual everything is deleted...is this true? I should mention that I am pretty new at using itunes and ipod also. Thanks.
