I unchecked the Summary>Options: "Convert Higher Bit Rate Songs to"
I also unchecked the "include voice memos"
The recopying issue didn't arise. My OTHER section sent down by 0.2 GB.

Same thing is happening to me. It copies about 1500 songs every time I sync, which is pretty annoying. It never used to do that. I'm really hoping Apple will fix this in an iTunes (or iOS) update. I'm really busy, especially this month, I don't have time to go troubleshooting this. If it means I don't have to mess with it, I'd like to see a fix, even if it takes a month or two. That's why I quit using Windows and switched to Mac a decade ago - I wanted to spend my time using my computer, not fixing it. Anyway, much oblidged, Apple, if you can fix this issue at some point.

I too have this issue. Mine copies 552 songs every time. It's annoying. Will try to get to the bottom of it; don't know what I will find out...
My problem ended up being a Smart-Playlist. I removed it and my problem has been solved, it was a duplicate smart playlist I had created and had selected. While it was of 577 songs therefore I would expect I'd copy 577 songs each time, but it was 552; strange.

Could you explain your method for converting mono songs to stereo in iTunes? Can you convert them after they've been imported, or would someone have to delete part of their library and re-import it as "stereo?" Thanks for reading.
