    After each time I add new songs though itunes to a music folder , ex: folder "My hits". After click sync to put new songs in this folder, a duplicate folder will appear ex: "My hits 1" on my a library playlist. I don't know why this happen and I must delete every duplicate folder manually. How to solve this problem these unwanted duplicates? Need your help

    Could you tell me how you put a song into "a folder" through iTunes? As far as I know, only playlist has "folder" to hold multiple playlists. Unless you manually manage your music, I don't know a way to put music into a folder using iTunes.

    i can't answer it, but i'm glad you asked the question...i have the same issue.

    in my case, it's not just new songs i've added to a folder, it's anytime i delete a song on my phone and then sync to the computer later. it creates a new folder 'car songs 1' including all the songs in 'car songs' plus the one i deleted. anyone?

    Oh. If this is the issue same as OP, then, current solution is to not modify playlist on device, but only through iTunes. This way, duplicates will not be added, at least for me.

    And, seems that "folder" is actually playlist. Maybe I was wrong though.
