I noticed that I have duplicate songs on the iPad but not on iTunes on my PC. I even selected not to sync music and synced my iPad with iTunes. To my surprise I still have 33 songs left on my iPad after the sync. I then selected the sync music again and I still have the same duplicates. Any idea how I can delete the songs from the iPad? I'm running the latest OS on the iPad.
