Question about Computers & Internet
In Windows Media Player 11, how can you keep from adding duplicate songs? Why isn't it like a ''folder'' such that when adding the exact same file it lets you know to replace or skip?
If you go into the "add new tracks" settings and make sure that MP11 is not looking at folders you don't want it too, I.E. backup folders on an external HDD. You have to remove the files manually or, as I did, rename or move the folder(s) with the duplicates in and when MP11 tries to play them and can't find them you can set it to delete from library automaticaly.

1.You can run Windows Media Player via choosing it in the "Programs" menu which locates in the "Start" menu or you can go through the shortcut on the computer's desktop by double click on it. If both of the two options cannot be found on your computer, the Windows Media Player can found via the folder "Program Files" in the hard drive.
2.Press on the key F3 to turn on the option "Add to Library via searching computer". Or you can choose this option in the "File" menu. Then a new window will pop up in Windows Media Player.
3.Click on "Browse" and then choose the folder which includes your music from the computer. If you cannot find your music in a single folder, repeat this step in the different folders, your music will finally be found in this repeated method.
4.The location of folder will now be listed in the dialog "Look In". Then click on the button "Search".
5.The specified folders will be scanned by Windows Media Player and the duplicates which are connected with the same files in your library will be deleted.
6.When the scanning process is finished, the remaining duplicates can be found in the library. These duplicates are actually connected to two respective folders, one can be removed and the other one will remain without any damaged by the deleted one.
