    I'm new to iPods having just purchased a nano to use with the nike+ sport kit. I'm noticing however when I upload a playlist to my nano it creates a duplicate track when that track is already on the nano as part of a previously uploaded album. Then if I play that album, the track repeats itself. Is there a way to avoid this when uploading playlists that contain tracks already on the nano? :confused:

    rather than have your iPod manually managed, set it to automatically sync playlists (or even the entire library). I find this is much easier and ensures no double-ups (unless you have some in your library on the computer).

    Won't auto sync attempt to copy my entire music library to my iPod? I definitely don't want that which is why I haven't tried it. I tried auto syncing only playlists but then it deleted anything not part of a playlist off the iPod. :(

    Yeah, so make another playlist with all your miscellaneous tracks that don't fit into your current playlists, and sync that too. It's what I do to save time and trouble.

    Auto sync gives you a choice of which playlists will be copied.

    Just make a playlist "iPod Playlist" and add everything you want on your iPod to it.

    Thanks, that solution seems to be working. I appreciate all the input.
