I have a new iPhone6, I downloaded media player app Car Tunes. I did not download any songs yet ... but I see a few albums and a bunch of songs on my phone both in 'Music' app and Car Tunes. In iTunes I don't see any songs at all. the only issue with iTunes is that I have message: "The iPhone "xyz" cannot be synced. An unknown error occurred (-54).
What should I do? My goal is to delete all songs from the phone but so far I failed to do it since I don't see it in iTunes.
First, turn off syncing for music in iTunes.
Then select "Apply", to sync the changes to your iPhone.
Turn on syncing again, click Apply once more and try to sync.

If this doesn't work, backup your device, restore it from your backup and try syncing it again.
I dislike how this is done manually. It used to be so much easier. It's a pain.
