This is my first ipod and I'm learning from the online manual. iTouch 64GB with all up to date software.

I downloaded some radio plays from iTunes and synced all to my Windows pc last night. Today I discovered that two of the stories landed in "On The Go2" playlist. One of the stories even appears to have repeated there about 8 times.

I tap -->Playlist-->On The Go2. Then there's supposed to be an Edit feature to tap so I can delete from the list or delete the entire On The Go playlist - but it's not there.

Can anyone help? I'm a total novice to all this but am loving this iPod.

the iPod touch only allows you to create/edit one On The Go playlist at a time. once you create one, the next time you sync, it will be saved as On The Go 1 (or 2, etc). That is now just a normal iTunes playlist that you have to edit in iTunes. You can create a new On The Go playlist on your iPod, but only one at a time.
hope that makes sense. i really miss being able to create mulitple On The Go playlists like you can on all other iPods. :(

Thank you, mzd!

Although I did sync earlier today, I went back into iTunes and synced them again. Then, when I went back to the On The Go Playlists, I could get to the Edit screen. I deleted all the radio plays from the OTG2 playlist and that playlist then was gone.
