NO RICHARD IT HAS FINISHED.
IT HAS ONLY SELECTED SOME.
ON THE MUSIC LIST THE SONGS THAT HAVE BEEN SYNCED ARE SHOWN IN BOLD PRINT, THE ONES THAT HAVENT ARE SHOWN IN FADED TEXT WITH A BROKEN CIRCLE BEFORE THE TIC
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
ARE YOU STILL THERE?
Expert:  Richard replied 8 months ago.

can you play these ones in faded text? Where did they came from? As this means they are not actually on the computer

Expert:  Richard replied 8 months ago.

If they are, then click on iPod in iTunes

uncheck Synch Music

Click Remove (it removes from iPod but will be added again)

Once done, put a check next to synch music

Tell me if it then works please
