    I have 23447 songs (132gb). The problem is that i have way too many duplicates, when i select display duplicates in itunes library there are 3588 songs (20.27gb). I would like to be able to fit all my collection onto my 120gb classic ipod.

    After searching online the only methods i can find is by individually deleting each song.

    some people will argue that some duplicates are necessary if you have the same song from an artist album, compilation, soundtrack etc.

    All i want is 1 copy of each song, as i normally play music on shuffle.

    Hit the 'File' menu then select 'Show Duplicates'. At this point I would do some double checking but at least you will be able to see the duplicates in one central location.
