    Are you sure that there are duplicate photos?


    Or are you simply referring to the fact that you have a Photo library folder and then your folders.  In this case there are not duplicate photos, simply two way to access the same photos.

    You cannot delete pics synced to the ipod from the ipod.  you have to use the sync process.


    Try un-checking the folders and syncing.  This should delete all the photos.  Then go back and select them again.



    As an aside, you need to be importing the pics taken with/saved from the ipod to your computer on a regular basis as you would from any digital camera.

    I have to weigh in on this - and my userhandle says it all regarding my competence with any Apple products - But I followed your steps and still have duplicates of about 10 of my 70 or so photos that I want on the Touch.  I even deleted something called "iPod Photo Cache" that iTunes(or the Touch itself) created in the folder where my photos came from.


    I then resynced from that folder and the same 10 photos appeared twice - in slide show and in the library thumbnails.  I can say with authority that they are definitely on there twice and I want the duplicates OFF.


    Please Help!  I am completely illiterate to navigating around i-Devices and liken them to a car that doesn't use a steering wheel to steer.  I need step by step instructions that can be made a sticky here.
