    not sure I am in th right place but here goes.

    bought a Mac and have used sync for contacts, calendar and apps and music. Still have itunes on older PC.

    everything is fine except on last sync of music I now have duplicates of every album and song. the iPhone ipod is fine. any short cuts to eliminate duplication and what did i do wrong on the sync.

    thanks

    please explain exactly what you did and in what order.

    you don't say where the duplicates are since you have two computers

    Bought an iMac and plugged in iPhone

    Was asked to set up this computer for iTunes data

    Did a sync for contacts, calendar and music

    Everything on iPhone was fine BUT no applications on iTunes. Call tech support and they solved the app problem

    Did a sync again and now I had duplicate appointments on iPhone of all calendar events. Figured out how to delete the multiple calendars i had on iMac and did another sync of calendar and all is fine on iPhone

    For some reason i went into iTunes music library and saw that every album was duplicated but the iPhone iPod was fine. Need to eliminate the duplicated albums

    I am guess that some setting I have on iMac is wrong. Also notice that on the PC i set up my preferences once but appear to have to set up sync preferences EACH time on the Mac.

    My problem may be more of a Mac issue than phone issue but sure would appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.

    thanks,
    Mike
