    Please help. I just bought an ipod touch and have only every had a shuffle. I still can not navigate the itunes site and sync properly. I do not know how, but on my ipod a song that I only bought once appears 12 times on my playlist. Just this 1 song out of 22!! It is annoying scrolling through "All Summer Long" that many times. How can I delete this from my ipod. I have tried re-syncing but it does not repeat on my library.

    You can check the box next to "Manually manage music and videos" on your iPod's device page in iTunes. This allows you to add/delete straight from the iPod rather than dealing with your library all the time.

    Thank you for responding. I already have the manual management set up. Could you please tell me how to delete all the songs but keep one to have on my playlist. Speak to me like a dummy...I am one when it comes to technology!

    You can just select the song and right click > delete or hit the DEL key in your iPod's music library. Delete all of them but one.

    In my library, the song is only shown one. Only on my ipod is it shown 12 times. Is there a way to delete it from the ipod itself?

    You're attempting to delete from the Music section under your iPod's name, right? Not the main iTunes Library.

    Yes. This section shows the songs only once so I do not need to delete anything. Now, I just noticed another song I bought earler appears 3 times on my ipod playlist. How am I doing this? I just transferred purchases and synced.
