    I ripped a CD into WMP 10. The songs each appear twice in the library list,
    however, 1 incident of the song file shows 192Kbps and the other shows
    128Kbps. I ripped them as WMA files. There is only one incidence of each
    song on my drive. Why do the songs show up twice and how do I get rid of one
    of them?

  2. Use the column chooser (right click on column headers) to add the File
    Path field, to see if there are in fact two different locations for each

    Yes, there are 2 different paths for each file (I don't know how that
    happened). I have a directory on my D drive called Music Library. I ripped
    all of them into there. However, the alternate pact was My Documents/My
    Music. I just erased that folder but the songs are still listed
    one instance of each is to a path that no longer exists. Moreover, when i
    doulbe click on the erased path, the song still plays (I emptied by trash

    Please advise...

  4. Sort your All Music listing by File Path and bulk-delete the entries for
    the wrong path. Just choose the remove from library-only option.

    I just ripped my entire audio collection to my windows media player 10. I am
    running windows xp professional with sp2 and i burned my songs onto a disk
    for my brother, but when i tried to burn a copy for myself, i noticed some
    of the songs were "double entered" this didnt happen until after i burned one
    disk. but when i checked the file path it said that some of the songs had
    different file paths from another ( for instance i had one that said C:\\my
    music, while another said, D:\\My music) . but each song had only one file
    path. what do i do?
