    There are seven copies of some of my albums on my iPod. I have tried rebooting and Syncing my iPod to iTunes, yet still no dice. So is a restore my only option or is there another way to fix this?

    this was a problem for me too. luckily i solved it. what you need to do is change the album name so they all match each other. look for small mistakes like a capitalization or punctuation in the wrong spot can throw it off. itunes recognizes these as seperate even though they are almost alike.

    also look if the artist's name is the same throughout.

    check if the album appears seven times in itunes if yes remove them till you have the desired amount and re sync or just remove them from your ipod
    go to itunes and right click delete

    Thats not the problem. Each copy of the album are full albums. I have just now figured out that the problem only occurs in coverflow

    They Don't appear seven times in iTunes

    Are the artists different?
    Coverflow sorts by artist so having multiple artists would probably mean multiple albums..

    It worked in 2.2.1. And some of you don't seem to get what I am saying, each album pictured in coverflow is a full album.

    Try syncing manually, then you can delete some duplicates. Not sure whether that'd solve your problem. :/.
