    hey i found out by accident that its possible to delete videos diretly from the ipod. when you're looking at the list of videos, you tap and hold your finger on the video that you want to delete, so that it glows blue, and then you slide your finger to the left. a red box that says delete will come up on the right. I thought this was kind of cool.

    i think you have to have it set to "manage music manually" in iTunes for that feautre to work...maybe thats whats wrong with it gameplaya...and yea you do slide finger horizontally so i think thats what it might be

    it is only for videos as far as media is concerned. the slide from Left to right and then tap delete method is alo used in the Mail app on the iPhone.

    I found that I don't have to 'tap and hold' on the video I want to delete, a simple swipe right will reveal the Delete option.

    Good find though!

    i think its dumb you cant delete things.

    i mean, how often do you sync...all the time right? so it can just store the delete data and when you sync it can say dont include these pictures, or whatever, or music.
