Windows 7: WMP Duplicate copies of each song

WMP Duplicate copies of each song

Hi,

Every version of WMP i have used lately does the same thing, instead of having one copy of each song in my library there is 2, 3 or even more. Is there any way to remove these duplicates without deleting each one manually ? Not only would that take forever but then WMP would just find more copies and import them.

Thanks in advance, Mickmac

Sounds like you need to do a little file housekeeping. If WMP is finding duplicate songs, it probably means you have them in more than one place on your hard drive. Looking at the Properties of these duplicate files should tell you where the files are located, and give you a place to start.

How did it know the song name?
Hi everyone, Just a quick question, out of interest. Years ago I downloaded a song with no name or title and named it "good song" because I had no info on it. Only had Windows 7 for a day and I noticed that it had found the artists and song name of the file. How did it do that? All it...

WMP has two copies of each song?
Yesterday, I created a new partition on my HD, and moved my documents, videos, and music into it. Today, when I opened my WMP, it began "updating media files"... and it created a second copy of all my music! A typical album now looks like this: track 1 track 1 track 2 track 2 ...etc... ...
