    Hello everyone,

    I ripped my 500 CDs into a network HD and use Window Media to play the
    songs. Unfortunately, Media has managed to "double" all of my song titles.
    Not the files themselves but just the titles. When you open an album, all
    songs all there twice. Two of song number 1, two of 2 and so on.

    How did it double? How do I get rid of that?

    What version of WMP and Windows?

    This could happen if the same folder is monitored twice by WMP, for
    example, if both C:\Media and C:\Media\Music are in WMP's list of
    monitored folders.

    Another possibility is that WMP's media library got corrupted. To reset
    it, follow the instructions for your WMP version at
    Note that resetting the library will make you lose all current play
    counts, and possibly ratings too.

    I wondered about this, but would it add tracks twice when they were,
    in fact, the identical files?

    I was wondering about Junction points in the filesystem (where a
    folder can appear at two distinct locations). This would at least give
    the impression that they were distinct files, because the paths would
    be different.

    I haven't tried or experienced this myself, but I guess that it's a
    Then it's the responsibility of the creator of the junction point to
    know that this could happen and to fix this :p I don't think that there
    are a lot of everyday computer users who have created junction points.
