    When I rip a CD, there are two copies of each song in the library of WMP 11.
    Anyone have this problem or found a solution?

    Hi Chris:
    I don't know if I can give you a correct answer but this is what I found.
    When I copy music from disks I had made previously, they open in my unknown
    folder because, even though these disks were made on XP, the WMP won't read
    the data. From there, I put them in Shared and Public because, even though I
    have two Vista books I still can't figure out which folder is used for my P2P
    sharing, and lo and behold, I now have 3 copies in my library. I suspect you
    can delete one of the copies but, I'd burn it to an RW disk just in case. Not
    much help but you have my sympathy. Why'd they have to screw up a perfectly
    good music file system.

    Be very carefull deleting from the library. WMP is set by default to delete
    the file as well. See Tools - Options - somewhere

    Thanks for the help. I have it set so deleting from the library does not
    delete the file. When I rip from a CD I just delete one of the copies and
    everything is OK. When I transferred all of my music from my old computer
    through the USB transfer cables, I only got two copies of some of the songs.
    Again, I just deleted one of the files, so the library only has one to read
    and everything is OK.
