For some reason I don't understand, my iTunes is stuck downloading TWO copies of the same app (ESPN iScore baseball). the 15.7MB download always goes to 9.2MB then resets over and over again.  And there are two of them, I've tried deleting them from the iPad, from my computer, from iTunes but every time I launch the program iTunes Download shows:


  2 iTunes Downloads Available


and tries to redownload the duplicate files.


This is crazy!  I can't update them directly on the device, it tells me to plug into iTunes.


Help!  How can I get back to just downloading the ONE update.

    Find the file on your computer.

    Once you've found it, make sure iTunes is closed, then delete the file.

    Then try downloading the update from iTunes again.


    It may be a problem with iTunes' server. Many have reported issues (including myself) of the same situation on the Mac App Store with duplicate updates of certain apps.
