How to get rid of songs in my ipad

I bought several albums from iTunes store and they were downloaded to my computer, and in same time to my iPad, problem is that they are now twice in my iPad; one version does play and is alright, the other version of the same song, is basically empty and does not play
I tried to deactivate automatic download from store on my comp and ipad and delete purchases on comp, then I run sync and a good copies disapiered but this horrible empty songs stayed there, how can I can rid of them, and advice?

You don't say whether you are on PC or Mac. For Mac there are these two programs which might help (I havn't tried either) :

http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/ipod_itunes/idupe.html
There are probably similar programs for PCs, but I don't know what they are. On a PC you can hold the shift key and do File > Display Exact Duplicates (without the shift they may not be exact matches) - if one of each duplicate pair has the same date added then you can sort by that and then delete those with (or without) that date.

  • How to get rid of song on phone?

    this sounds like the dumbest question, but I can't figure out how to get rid of a certain song on my phone.  It pops up on shuffle all the time, and I know I must have added it to a playlist at some point. 
    But I have a bunch of long playlists and I cannot find it in any of them! 
    How can I tell which playlist a certain song is on?
    Thanks
    Bob

    OK -- so I actually called AppleCare about this.  I went through 30 minutes on the phone with the entry-level guy, and he couldn't help.  He actually wanted me to check 'manually manage music" and have iTunes wipe my phone, then I was going to have to reselect all my music!  And that would not have even fixed the problem, I know.  He was clueless but thankfully escalated me to a dude who solved this in 30 seconds.
    I had to delete the song *from* the phone.  Went to the Music App, under More->Purchased, and swiped left on the song and then could delete it.
    So, because I bought the song on the phone, and it wasn't in a playlist, I was not able to remove it from iTunes.  I had to do it on the phone.

  • How to get rid of iMessage on my iPad

    I have an iPad, which is somehow linked to my Cell phone number. Anytime my wife sends me a message using her iPhone and iMessage I receive it on my iPad instead of my Android Samsung Phone. We do not want to turn the iMessage on her iPhone off. Is there anyway to get rid of the iMessage link between my iPad and my phone number? This is really annoying

    While Demo is correct (as always), there is another solution if you prefer:
    Since your phone number is associated with a non-Apple device, it makes no sense to use it as a potential iMessage recipient address.
    You could go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive and delete that telephone number from the candidate addresses you may have there.  To delete, you may have to click the little white arrow in the blue circle on the right.
    This way, you could keep iMessage on for other purposes, if you wish.

  • How to get rid of songs in iTunes

    I deleted from my library lots of songs and then deleted them when they were in trash can, but then when I later look at my library it's still there for some reason?
    I feel bad because I spent a lot of time picking out and deleting those files.

    Hi,
    Just open iTunes and select Player List ... select the song(s) you don't like anymore and ... right click and select DELECTE.

  • How do I get rid of album art on iPad?

    I upgraded to iOS 7.0.4 today, and I hate it. But what I hate most of all is that all my purchases had album art automatically downloaded for them, even though I intentionally delete all album art from every song I buy. I have no idea how to get rid of it from my iPad, and I'm afraid that when I sync to my laptop, it will get the album art too. I don't want often-ugly art attached to my music.

    Well that's a new one.
    No, that isn't something that is configurable. And in my experience, the only cover art the Music app picks up on its own, rather than the sync source, is for the Artist view. I could be wrong (like most of users on the planet, I do use and maintain cover art). But it is not likely to sync over to your laptop, either.

  • How to get rid of the old songs from iPhone that do not show up in iTunes?

  • Error Message:  I keep getting this error when I try to download apps or songs :  MZCommerce.CreditBalance Mismatch.Mobile_message   Can someone tell me how to get rid of this?  It is very aggravating when trying to use the IPAD.

    Try to go to Settings and then Store. Tap to your Apple ID and select View Apple ID. Now choose to check your payment information and when you're done tap Done. I had to rewrite my three digit code of the credit card and now it works.
    Oh, I also activated Genius for Apps but I don't think it makes any difference.

  • How do I get rid of songs from my phone?

    Like whenever I want to delete a song from my phone, it shows the icloud sign. When I shuffle the music, it will still play the song. I just want to get rid of them off my phone so it won't play it ever again. I have ios 7.0.4. I know in ios 6 when you delete a song, it goes away from your library. How do I get rid of songs on ios 7 and not keep playing them?

    I think there must be a bug somewhere.  Some songs I can delete and they disappear.  But none of my attempts to remove the Justin Timberlake song from Apple's 12 days of gifts have gotten me very far.  I can 'delete' it so that it is listed as needing to be downloaded again.  But it seems to be just marked as deleted.  If I turn off 'Show all music' in my Settings, the song remains there, but no longer has the cloud icon beside it, but also will not swipe to show the delete button.  If I turn 'Show all music' back on, the cloud icon reappears.  Regardless the song will play, even in airplane mode.  So it is clearly still on my iPad.
    I have tried resetting my iPad - changes nothing.  Apple seems determined that we keep this song!
    Also, since I attempted to delete the song immediately after it downloaded, it doesn't appear on my iMac iTunes synch page.  So I can't try to get rid of it that way.
    Very frustrating.

  • I just turned on iTunes on my Mac and suddenly instead of the usual song list there's a window with what looks like a screensaver graphic.  Anyone know how to get rid of this permanently?  Thanks.

  • When i sync my phone with itunes some of the songs always have the sync symbol next to them and are lighter than the others and i dont know how to get rid of them. help please

    when i have synced my phone with itunes there are old songs that i dont want. these songs always have the sync sign next to them but i dont know how to get rid of them, i have event deleted them from my library, my computer and hidden them on i cloud. help please

    Settings/ Music/ Show All Music/ OFF
    There is a parallel setting in Settings/ Videos/ which also includes Videos in the cloud, as well as Settings/ iTunes & App Store/ where you can set both Music and Video preferences.  But you only need to change a setting in one location.

  • How to get rid of the illustration (next to the song's title) on my 160GB?

    Hi a while ago I bought a 160 GB IPOD and it works fine ... There is just one annoying thing : I only use it for playing music and it put as much information as possible on it via iTunes... now when I play my iPod, there is this annoying illustration (a picture of a music note) that takes half of the screen : in many occasions : I can't even read the whole name of the artist...
    I can't find how to get rid of this ...
    Can you help me?

    There's no way to get rid of it. Sorry.

  • How to get rid of title bar of a quicktime window?

    The main problem:
    I want to display the title info etc about each track as they play in iTunes. How can I do that on an otherwise black screen (desktop) (I don't want to use the visualizer with its psychedelic patterns).
    Background:
    I want to play music from iTunes (many pieces in a row - for like a full day). While this is happening I want the title etc of the tune to be displayed on the screen, like white smallish text against a black background in the lower right hand corner. At the same time I want slides to be displayed on the screen.
    So, with iPhoto I can run a slide show but only while one piece of music is playing.
    Instead I can have the desktop slowly change (from system preferences) with images from a folder every 5 seconds. That's not too bad. Looks good, actually, except for that annoying menu bar at the top! Well, black tape can hide that one (or a second display and move it over there). Now iTunes can play away all day.
    As to how to get the title etc of the song playing displayed I was thinking about somehow extracting it from iTunes with applescript, then paste it into the text track of a quicktime movie, and display that little movie in a small window. I have figured out how to get rid of the controller from the window. But, I can not figure out how to get the title bar of the quicktime window to go away - that is I want a window with nothing around it, neither controllers nor title bar nor anything. How do I create such a window. Any good ideas out there?
    Or is there a totally different way of obtaining the same effect?
    Thanks.

    Hi,
    You could try posting at the QuickTime discussion area. There might be an iTunes visualizer that allows you to make a slideshow with track info. It has been a while since I tried making a SMIL file, but I think you could do what you want with that. Not sure how you create a streaming text of track information. I would have to do some reviewing.

I would like to delete everything on it and start over but I am afraid I cannot add anything back on it. I know this is detailed and a lot, but I really need help.

    Restore
