    I did as instructed but there is one album, that when selected, the trash can is greyed out. They cannot be deleted. Now what?

    Seasons greetings Mitch…. In short I have a IPHONE 6PLUS and cannot delete a self taken video. I have attempted everything and yet it keeps pointing back to a ITUNES SYNC issue? I do not understand. The IPHONE syncs with a WIN 7 laptop so no surprises there. Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks
