Plug it into your computer, and select which ones you want on your device with the SCT software.

you will have to overwrite one of the existing tunes in your tuner.

I always save copies of my tunes to my computer so I can add them or remove them as needed.

That being said I dont know how to take them off the device without losing them.

Have them all on your computer, and you just write over the top of them on the SCT.

no, if you don't have a copy on your computer of the tunes that are currently loaded into the tuner currently, you are out of luck. There is no way to get the tunes off of the tuner and onto your computer. Right now if you load a tune on to your full tuner (3 tunes loaded) you will have to overwrite one of the existing tunes in the tuner, therefore you lose it.
