    Hello guys, new member here

    -I've not had my ipod touch for very long and I've been playing around with itunes and syncing. Noticed that it automatically syncs every new song / album from itunes to it.

    Here's my question: how do I stop it from putting selected albums onto my ipod?

    -Also, while I'm on it, how do I 'remove' albums from my ipod without wiping everything?

    Thanks in advance!

    Nevermind, I figured this out.

    For any new users who are wondering this (probably just me though lol) when you've plugged in your ipod, by default it will sync your entire library. There's an option below that to only sync selected.

    I just turned that on, then found the few albums I didn't want on my pod and unchecked them. -This will also remove them from your ipod if they're on it already.

    I'm sorry. I was really tired when I read that.

    At the moment, it's not too bad because theres only a few albums I don't want on there, but in the future when my itunes gets bigger than my 16gb ipod I'm going to need to be selective.
