Quoting Daleaholic (Reply 7): I'm guessing you should leave the Ipod idea and buy the alternative... Sandisk Sansa E200 series
Too late for that. My new 8Gbyte Nano is already fully charged and fully loaded with songs.
But I already found a flaw in the iTunes software: after a selected playlist is synchronized, if I want to remove one song from that playlist, unchecking it does not trigger an automatic synchronization. Rather, I have to remove the entire playlist that I changed from the iPod, and then put it back again, because I unchecked one song.
This means that, for a playlist that is 4Gbytes, if I change my mind about one song, I gotta wait for it to update the whole playlist again (4Gbytes). And if you find that there isn't enough space and need to remove yet one more song, than you have to do it all over again.
But don't get me wrong, the product is as perfect as can be, this is a mere detail. Yes I'd buy it over any other I bought it for jogging, since it doesn't have a hard disk.

Unless it's an intelligent (rule-based) playlist, you can simply select that playlist within the iPod in iTunes (the iPod shows up with its library and all its playlists next to the ones iTunes itself manages) and delete (not uncheck) the item from the playlist. That's it.
You could also select the library and delete it from there to get rid of it altogether. (Titles deleted from a playlist will still remain in the library.)
Library and playlists can be managed in the same way on the iPod and on your computer if automatic synchronization is off.
I kid, of course; and if you only knew of your brilliant reputation across the pond, that would become obvious. Your excellence is a topic of daily conversation, and people often become involved in heated debates as to which of your features is most admirable - your wit or your beauty. Last year, I believe someone even got shot during such an argument.
Better to be nouveau than never to have been riche at all.
