    I'm having a major issue with deleting music directly from one of these devices.

    Basically, I currently have 2 devices, an iPhone 4 32GB and an iPad 2 16GB.

    My issue is that my music library is too big for my iPad and is not syncing everything so I decided to delete music directly from the device but the problem is, even if I delete it, it syncs BACK onto it once I plug it into my laptop.

    I have been told to UNCHECK the songs I DO NOT want back onto the iPad which is fine but I also have an iPhone to contend with and I DO want everything on my iPhone!! lol I want to leave my iPhone untouched!!

    Is there any way to find a solution to this as I dont want to delete music from my iPhone too!!

    In iTunes, go to iPad > Music, uncheck Entire Music Library, and narrow down what you want iTunes to sync to that device.
