    I have a 16gb 2nd gen touch. Reading the manual it says how to delete a podcast or song from the touch. Doing what it says I am not able to do so. It says connect touch and open itunes click on triangle next to device. it opens up music, podcasts etc. I click on podcasts and I highlight the podcast I want deleted and when I hit the delete button on keyboard nothing happens. I have to delete the podcast from itunes then sync the touch. How can you delete a podcast from the device only? thank you.

    just uncheck the little box next to the podcast you dont want
    and for music just take away the playlists

    I don't know about you guys but I find it irritating that some media can only be deleted by syncing.

    baker, that's not the answer whiskers (or JAD) was looking for. like whiskers, i tried to delete some podcasts from my ipod touch for weeks with no luck from syncing.

    HERE'S HOW. on your ipod, go do the podcast you want to delete. instead of selecting it, quickly swipe your finger across to the left or to the right. a delete button will appear. delete.

    I never try to sync unless absolutely necessary. Music especially. I have waaaaaay too much music and I enjoy customizing everything I can.

    Wow, the swipe and delete is exactly what I wanted. Apple makes such great interfaces! I almost never synch, just download via wifi. Cables are so pre-2010!
