You don't see an Edit button in the upper right hand corner of your videos? If you do, click that and an "X" will appear next to each video. Hit the X, and that will delete the video. Music yup have to do through iTunes, or swipe each track from right to left to delete. After you've deleted all the tracks, the album will disappear.
Once that is all done, do the manually manage music and videos as described above. Only the videos and music you check on iTunes will sync with your iPad after that. YouTube videos can help quite a bit.
P.S. I attached a pic of the Edit option your screen should have. Click it, X's appear next to each video, tap the X and they're history. "Done" will appear where the "Edit" option is, so tap that when you're done.
I'm not getting the edit button. Also, I don't have a laptop, won't have one and don't want one and refuse to use one. I also have a bitter memory of what a nightmare it was to set up the piece of crap called a shuffle. Only loaded half of my hundred songs and that too, at random. Didn't even let me choose. Oh and all this two about three days of trial and error with that overly complicated crap,software
Tried turning that stuff off in in tunes. No luck. I'm not plugging it into a computer. Don't have one. Not getting one. My Verizon bill was very high last three months. I am turning off my tethering and quitting the internet again. And I will probably return the mini over this today. I just watch a couple of movies if even that per month., I never finish them. No interest in watching others live .
From beginning when I bought ipad 4 in feb, there was an issue with videos. Life of pi simply wouldn't download right. After wks, it seems it started working. For a long time it was fine. I had this problem before though, but it seemed to work out. Maybe becuz I had a hp laptop till march. Now both the iPads are saying there is no video content and also refusing to download new video. Which sucks and is totally unacceptable. So I am now definitely exchanging the mini for the air and then probably selling my 4.
Did a total wipe of my 4 and that fixed it. Kinda like Vietnam.....we had to burn down the village to save it.
That would have worked with mini too, but didn't occur to me or I didn't know how.
Yeah I see now where identity said restore the mini. Should've googled restore ipad like I did today but oh well. I like the air better anyway. And I am getting tons of calls bout my 4. It's been on Craig's list since 8 pm last nite
Were these videos and songs you purchased from iTunes? I'm guessing there were videos from icloud on your account. These were not videos/songs that were physically on the device, but were available to stream from icloud. There was likely a little cloud symbol in the lower right corner.
