How do i delete duplicated photos on ipod Nano 7th gen.?


You'd better cleanup your iTunes library firstly. Just click "View > Show Duplicate Items" and then you would just check off the duplicates that you wanted to remove. After removed all the duplicates in your iTunes, sync it to your iPod, then all duplicates in your iPod will be removed automatically.

How to use one then one iPod with one computer


Method One
If you share your computer with other people, you can maintain separate user accounts for each person who uses the computer. This is useful especially if each user has different tastes in music; users can maintain separate, personalized iTunes music libraries and can customize their iPods accordingly.

Mac OS X users:
Learn how to set up additional user accounts.

Windows users:
Look in your computer's Help documentation to learn how to set up additional user accounts. To locate this information:

Click the Start Menu, and then click Help or Help and Support.
Enter "new user" in the Search field.
Press Return.
If you create multiple user accounts on one computer but want the same music to be available in iTunes for all users, see iTunes: How to share music between different accounts on a single computer.




Method Two

You may use multiple iPods on a computer without the need to create multiple user accounts. To do this, you can set iTunes to update each iPod with only certain playlists. This method allows you to put all your music on, say, your iPod and keep your iPod shuffle updated with only your workout music. Here's how to do this with iTunes 9:

Create new iTunes playlists that contain all the music that you want to sync to each iPod.
Learn how to Sync your iPod (read the iPod Tutorial Steps section below the video).
Note: iTunes for Windows does not support syncing multiple iPod devices at the same time.



Method Three

Create a separate iTunes library for each iPod. Note: It is important that you make a new iTunes Library file. Do not just make a copy of your existing iTunes Library file. If iTunes is open, quit it.

Mac users: Hold down the Option key while you open iTunes.
Windows users: Hold down the Shift key while you open iTunes.
In the dialog that appears, click Create Library.
Name and save the alternate library file. iTunes opens with your brand new library file.
Open iTunes Preferences. Choose iTunes > Preferences (Mac) or Edit > Preferences (Windows).
Click the Advanced tab.
Deselect the "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library" checkbox if it is already selected and click OK. This will prevent iTunes from creating duplicates of your existing media files in the new library folder.

Add the specific media files you want on your iPod to iTunes either by dragging them into iTunes or choosing File > Add to Library (Mac) or File > Add File to Library or Add Folder to Library (Windows).

Once you have the iTunes Library just how you want it, connect and sync your iPod.

Once the sync is complete, quit iTunes.
Mac users: Hold down the Option key while you open iTunes.
Windows users: Hold down the Shift key while you open iTunes.
Click Choose library.
Choose your original iTunes Library and click Choose (Mac Users) or Open (Windows Users). You can now switch back and forth between the different libraries for different iPods.

How do I delete duplicate songs on my Nano 4gb Ipod? How do I adjust the volume?


Using iTunes' "Show Duplicate Items" feature, you can locate and manually remove duplicate songs on your iTunes music library. Once the library is cleaned, you need only sync iTunes with your iPod to remove duplicates from your device as well. This guide takes iTunes 12 to remove song duplicates.
delete-duplicate-oxaxc0rwhkhzilrwacqreyis-1-0.jpg
  1. In iTunes, click "View > Show Duplicate Items" in Music module;
  2. Compare the listed song duplicates upon artist, album, date added, genre, play count, size, bit rate, and more to determine which item to keep and which item to remove;
  3. Hold the "Ctrl" key and click each duplicate you wish to delete.
  4. Connect your iPhone 6 to PC, click your iPhone from the device list, hit "Music" and select "Sync" to sync your library using your existing sync settings.
By doing this, you could delete duplicate songs on iPod from your iTunes. But it will eat a lot time of you. To save your time, let's come to the 2nd method - using 3rd-party iTunes cleaner program.

Tried to download 50 albums to i tunes library,mp3 files, from dvd by drag and drop. all showing on playlist and also showing all tracks from each album. however none will download to my i pod classic and...


You really should NOT try the "drag and drop" from a DVD - it'll end up making symbolic links ("aliases") to each of the files rather than copying them into the iTunes library. If you click on them in iTunes on your computer WHILE the DVD is mounted they'll probably play, since it can "find" the original files. But your iPod can't "play" them from your DVD, can it? So either COPY all the MP3 files onto your hard drive from the DVD and THEN drag them onto the iTunes "Music" library icon or, instead, in the File menu, select "Add to Library" and select them from there. Oh, and first delete all those dead links with the little grey "x" or question mark by the name in your iTunes music main window to make it easier to tell the new "good" ones you add afterwards (do this with DVD removed).

Import all your music back into iTunes and in one of the submenus should be "view duplicates"delete the duplicates.
then in one of the submenus should be "consolidate library"
clicking this will move all of your music into one consolidated folder
