This weekend I am starting to burn my 2.5k cd collection to FLAC on a burning station (16 cd drives in two tower cases connected to my new 2 tb media server) a friend and I are building.

I have about 1.5k of these cds already burned to mp3 plus I have mp3s that I do not have cds for.

1 - Will I have to sift through my mp3 collection and move the mp3 version of albums I burn to FLAC to another directory to avoid duplicate entries in the library listing?

2 - Are there any pitfalls I need to avoid in setting up my library directories that I should be aware of? doubt it but I thought I would ask anyway..

thanks!
