faulty song on ipod

Posted on 2012-08-24

I've got an ipod touch gen 2 32GB running IOS 4.2.1. Recently i downloaded a new album on itunes on my mac, and unknown to me, unfortunately one of the tracks was corrupted during download. After I synched my ipod, of course this corrupted song was loaded. Once I realized this, I obtained another copy of the song and put in in the itunes library on my mac (deleting the corrupted version).

So the problem arises: how do I get this new version of the song onto my ipod? I have tried synching the ipod again, which does nothing. I don't want to have to wipe the ipod. I just want to delete the corrupted song off the ipod and get the new copy on in its place.

    Assisted Solution

    you will need to set your iPod to manual then when your iPod is plugged in, view the tracks on it in iTunes, highlight the track you wish to remove and hit the 'delete' key. Then turn auto-sync back on and resync.

    Manually Managing
    Plug your Apple iPod into your computer.
    Open iTunes.
    Click your iPod's name to open your iPod "Summary" page.
    Check the box next to "Manually manage music and videos." Click "Apply" to enable this feature.
    Click the triangle next to your iPod's name under devices. When this listing expands, click "Music." Highlight the name of any song you want to remove from your iPod and press the Delete button to immediately remove that song from your device.

    You can then manually copy the song to your ipod and then turn auto-sync back on or manage your ipod manually (your choice)
