By connecting the iPod to a computer, the songs can be deleted via iTunes. However, if the user wants to completely wipe the iPod, it should be connect to a computer. The u…ser should then right click on the iPod in My Computer (if using Windows) and select "format".
Plug it into your computer as if you would be putting some on, and when the list of music comes up, click a song and press delete
You need to delete it trough Itunes or similar software.
Simply hook your iPod up to iTunes, and select restore from the iPod menu.
You cannot erase music directly from your iPod Nano. You must plug it in to your computer, open up iTunes (Note: The following information has only been verified for iTunes ve…rsion 8.0 and later), and wait for iTunes to show a bar with your iPod's name in the vertical bar to the left in iTunes. After plugging the iPod in, there should be three submenu under your iPod's name, and click on 'Music'. Find the music you want to delete, and right mouse click on it (or hold Ctrl+Click), and click on 'delete'. It will ask you whether you want to remove the song from your iPod or not, and click 'yes' or 'remove'. If that window doesn't show, it means you have made it not ask you every time sometime in the past. That is how to erase music from your iPod Nano.
Directly from iPod Touch: Go to the movies section, and then tap and hold the movie(s) you want to delete. Slide your finger to the right and a delete button should appear on… that movie (don't let go of the movie when tapping and holding the movie). Tap the delete button and delete it. If your iPod Touch automatically syncs movies from iTunes, then it will reappear on your iPod when you connect to iTunes the next time. From Computer: You must first plug the iPod Touch into your computer and open up iTunes. Click on your iPod symbol (when the computer recognizes it and loads it in iTunes), and under that, there should be a Music symbol. Click on that, and just right-mouse click (or Ctrl + Click) on the song, and press delete. This will delete the song only from your iPod Touch, but will remain in your iTunes account.

You plug your iPod into your Mac using the sync cable and sync songs to your iPod through iTunes.
In Mac OS
It depends on what type of restoration you are preforming on your iPod touch. It you are resetting the network then yes all your tabs and bookmarks get erased. If you are rese…tting settings to factory default then no your bookmarks will not be erased. If you are restoring your whole iPod completely then yes everything on your ipod will be erased.
No, it won't, unless you are syncing from a different computer, then yes it will.
yes ANS2: My iPod just was replaced. I restored from iTunes and everything but for a few pass-worded settings were restored to the same as the old one. If you mean that y…ou are contemplating restoring it to factory settings...then, yes, it will wipe the unit. You would want to restore it to factory default if you are planning to sell it so your personal data won't be on it.
In iPod Shuffle
You have to delete music from an iPod through iTunes. Plug your iPod into your computer/laptop using the USB cable. Open iTunes and your iPod will appear on the left hand s…ide menu. When you click on it, it'll show you the music that's currently on your iPod. Click on a song and press the delete key on your keyboard or right-click on it and press 'delete'. Once you've deleted the songs you no longer want, click on 'sync' before removing your iPod from your computer.
