    I love the feature of being able to delete files from the iPod Touch directly. Does anyone know if it is possible to delete them from the iPod Touch and then have them deleted automatically from the iTunes Library when it is connected to the computer the next time? If it is, how is that accomplished?

    Thanks!

    I am going to say no, and I am almost positive. I know for a fact that a setting in itunes makes it that if you delete a song from your library, it deletes it from your ipod as well. I don't believe that this works the other way around.

    Nope, the syncing between the iPod and Computer gose 1 way (Computer to iPod for anybody new to iPods), so if you delete something on the iPod it won't delete it on the computer.

    Well that's a bummer, but somewhat expected. Oh well, thank you all for the prompt replies!

    You can delete videos and emails (not music) by doing a swipe from left to right over the name of the video or email. (A delete button will pop up).
