View Full Version : How do you eliminate multiple listings of the same album?

I probably just need to clear out the database and rescan but I can't figure out how. The albums in question are not in my music folder twice and i-Tunes shows them only once.

I "think" the slim device server is accessing my i-Tunes library but not sure...I know it is scanning the mp3 folder I put in the settings.

thanks,

Server settings - performance - clear cache usually does the trick, I think.

thanks. good info.

I cleared cache and still have multiple song listings for a few albums. There is only one copy of the albums on my hd...anyone have any idea why this might be happening? Is the slim database looking at i-Tunes and seeing a tag slightly different than the actual file?

Could be. Do you use iTunes in any way associated w/SlimServer? If
not, try disabling the iTunes plugin.
