    New PC. Touch now going apeship with dupes

    Hello and please accept my apologies as much of this is beyond my head.

    I have a Touch and LOVE it...WHEN it's not giving me hassles. Right now its giving me hassles.


    I have a 1TB external, and a 500G internal on my PC. When I fire up an individual album anywhere from 2 to 5 individual copies of the same song show up on the touch. iTunes no longer offers "DISPLAY DUPLICATES", or if they do, I am unable to find it. Right now I have "USE ITUNES" checked in the menu.

    What is the easiest way to wipe out all the dupes and return this thing to its blissful state?

    Do you have any playlists in the file system? They tend to produce duplicates...

    Do you use iTunes integration at the same time as pointing LMS to directories where the files are ?

    Don't set the playlist directory the same as the music file directory in LMS . Make a special folder for playlists .
    All the m3u or cue files you may have created in each album is a playlist , this makes dupes ( I recommend removing them anyway )

    Shortcuts if LMS finds the same file via a different path it thinks it's another version of the album and thus you got dupes .
    Especially shortcuts between the external drives on the external drives ?

    Julf,

    I have no playlists.

    Mnyb,

    1. I don't know.
    2. Not sure about shortcuts. My PC skills are not that advanced, but I will try and look at the software and see if I can find anything regarding shortcuts.

    Many thanks for the input gents!
