When I connect my first-gen iPad to my Mac, I have in duplicates in my iTunes. This song have a gray font and have a circle next to their names. Here is a screenshot:enter image description here

Any idea how to remove this songs? Why do they always show up even after deleting all of my songs off of my iPad?

The songs that you are seeing aren't on your iPad - they are simply still downloading. I believe you can stop them from downloading from the iTunes Store on your iPad or your Mac.

  • unfortunately i can not do this :/

In my opinion, you can use a third-party tool to find and remove the duplicate songs in your iTunes. I once tried with a program called MUSIC CLEANUP. It helped me quickly find and delete all my duplicate songs at once.

  • Do you work for the company that produces Music Cleanup or something? You only have two posts, both on the same subject, and both recommending that software. Oct 16, 2014 at 7:16
