WMP duplication tracks in library

  harpo63 16:54 12 Nov 2007

Hello folks

Running latest version of WMP. For some reason it has started duplicating every track 4 times in the track library. Probably just a settings box issue, but cant see anything out of the ordinary

recently installed itunes - may be coincidence?

Any pointers would be great

It should only have one entry per song in the library as shown on your hard drive,have you moved any music around?
Whilst in wmp,find the 3 or 4 tracks right click on each track >properties and note each location c:my music etc.
If they are in 3 to 4 different locations that will explain it.
If not, do all entries play?they may just need a re index.

Hi raven

sorry for delay in getting back.Turns out itunes had duplicated libraries by default within my sync folder for wmp. Shuffled it all about and deleted old libraries, changed library settings in itunes and then followed the re-indexing process (easier than i thought it would be!) you kindly placed a link to - all is ok now. many thanks for your help
