I have an iPod Shuffle (4th generation) and a Logitech Revue. I don't have a computer. Recently, I went to a cybercafe to de-sync this new iPod Shuffle with iTunes. We downloaded three MP3's from a non-iTunes source. So it was no longer sync'd with iTunes a few days ago. When the device is new, it comes sync'd with Apple's iTunes. Which means that you can only use it with iTunes - until you un-sync it. I wanted to use MP3's from a non-iTunes source. A few moments ago, I was running the File Expert application, using the Revue and the iPod connected to it via USB, and decided to delete the three songs I had downloaded into the iPod at the cybercafe - as I wasn't sure I could delete them from home using a Logitech Revue Google TV. I was hoping I wouldn't have to return to the cybercafe, just to delete a song from the iPod Shuffle! [I still hadn't/haven't figured out how to download songs into the iPod Shuffle using just the Logitech Revue and an Application!] Using the TinyShark Downloader application and the Logitech Revue, I had downloaded five songs into the SDcard file in the File Expert application. I was trying to figure out a way to download directly into the iPod without first sending them to the SDCard. That is when I tried deleting the three songs that were actually in the iPod. While checking to see if they were deleted (they were deleted), I got the message that I need to sync the device with iTunes again!!!! In the cybercafe, I had used the instructions from CopyTransManager to "unsync" the iPod from iTunes. How do I prevent automatic synchronization of my iPod when I open iTunes? I have two Folders in my File Expert Application: SDcard and Phone Internal Storage [the pathway to the iPod is contained here]. I went to Phone Internal Storage/mnt/media/usb.44E8-1CFE. It showed the three MP3's. I selected each, then choose delete. Is this a prohibited move? Are you only allowed to delete from the SDcard? If the Shuffle weren't a gift to someone else, I'd through the damn thing away. It's taking up too much of my time futzing around with it.
