I have Spotify Premium. I had to change devices and took my sd card to the new device. How do I get Spotify to recognize those songs. I don't want to download them again and have them take double the space in the card.

Any help?

Do you mean songs you added to Spotify, or playlists your downloaded? If it's the later, you may just need to connect to wifi to redownload the playlist. If it's the former, reach out to Spotify Cares on FB or Twitter, they're pretty quick with responses on these types of things.

It's the latter, but wouldn't that create a new download, or do duplicates not count?

The playlists downloaded are temporary files, so it's likely they weren't saved when you switched. You wouldn't have double the files, I don't think. unclick the 'offline' playlist option, then turn it back on. Once on wifi and Spotify open, it should sort itself out and download the playlists.
