    Okay so I don't see an area for iPods here.

    I have some songs I want to remove from my iPod but cannot see how to delete on the device itself.

    When I plug it into a PC all you can see is the DCIM folders.

    Anyone?

    EDIT: Oh knickers (sorry) :p just noticed there is a gadgets sub forum.

    Still, I expect someone will know.

    Which type of iPod are you talking about? On an iPod Touch I believe you can swipe a song and click delete. On other iPods (Classic, Nano, Shuffle) you have to connect it to iTunes and either delete the song(s) from your library or select the iPod's music tab and deselect the song(s) in question.

    Connect it to iTunes?

    Okay.

    Mine is an iPod 4th generation.

    Tried that.

    In iTunes you go to purchased, you can highlight and play a song but I can't see anywhere on the iPod where you could delete it.
