    Specs:
    MacBook Air - 128 GB SSD, 2.13GHz intel duel core, 2GB Ram
    Can't delete songs on iPhone with itunes
    OSX 10.6.2
    iPhone OS 3.1.3
    Itunes 9.0.3

    I got my macbook air a few weeks ago and have only recently decided to delete some songs from my iphone.

    Because it's a new computer i had to delete my iphone library and resync the iphone. Itunes can see the iphone fine and it can sync with the iphone.

    When i click the iphone icon on the left pane of itunes all my iphone songs appear, but they are grayed out. I can secondary click them to bring up a dialogue box, but it only has the option to view info.

    Any ideas as to why my itunes wont let me delete songs on my iphone even though it allows it to sync and connects fine?

    You dont so much as DELETE songs on your iPhone .... Its a matter of unchecking the songs you dont want then re syncing your phone.
    So your iTunes doesnt look like


    Sorry without seeing what you meaning its hard to grasp lol

    Not sure .... I havnt got my iPod Touch at hand to try ...
    I have only needed to check or uncheck songs, playlists or artists if i dont want them.

    Does this happen in the window where you sync everything to your phone ??

    On the Summary page under Options, you'll need to place a check in "Manually manage music and videos" for that functionality.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
