    hi guys

    i recently purchased an ipod touch. due to the limited space, i decided to reduce the # of songs i would put on my ipod touch so i would have room for apps.

    i thought this could be done by unchecking the songs i did not want and then syncing my ipod touch. i assumed only the checked items would sync

    however, this did not happen. my ipod still synced all the songs in my library.

    did i do something wrong?


    edit: I'M SO COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS!! I forgot to check the "sync only checked songs and videos" box.

    sorry for the unnecessary post :p

    Did you select the option to sync only checked items? You need to select that option or it will sync everything, including the unchecked songs.

    With your iPod plugged into iTunes, you want to check the box "Sync only checked items". That's all you need to do, and it should take care of the rest!
