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.
