View Full Version : Duplicate songs

I did some retagging of my music collection (added comments and album art to a few albums) and now those albums have the songs listed twice. I use MusicMagic. When I open the album it lists each song twice. 1 is musicmagic mixable and one isn't. Any thoughts? I tried rescanning my library and it did not fix it.

If you have all your music in MusicIP, then the easiest would be to simply
remove the music path.

Do you have non-latin characters in the file/pathnames? IMHO MusicIP has a
problem with them.

Did you do a full rescan (wipe & scan)?

I did remove the music path to see if that would help and I did a full rescan (clear library and rescan music).

I relooked at my library and it seems like the only albums that have duplicate songs are the ones that I recently modded their tags. All I did was went into tag&rename and do an amazon search for info and uploaded album art and comments. The comments are stored as a text file and the art is a jpg in the folder with the albums. I'm not sure how this would affect the library?

I think I fixed my own problem. I deleted the cache folder in slimserver (it seemed to be a solution for other problems on the board) restarted the computer and did a clean rescan of music and no more duplicates.
