Removing Duplicates in ITunes


R

I have a large collection of classical music by a certain performer
I'll call "ArtistX". About 30 CD's in all here.

The folder structure is:
E:\MyMusic\ArtistX\CD1\
E:\MyMusic\ArtistX\CD2\
E:\MyMusic\ArtistX\CD3\.... etc.

I wanted to add 4 CD's of his work but instead I made the error when
"Adding Folder To Library", of choosing "E:\MyMusic\ArtistX\".

So ITunes added the 4 CD's, plus all of the others that were already
loaded in ITunes.

Now I have a *boatload* of duplicate track entries in ITunes.

How can I tell ITunes to automatically remove the duplicates?

iTunes is not a Microsoft product and the Apple.com website may be of better assistance.<<

Postings there have come back saying that since I am using ITunes on
Windows, I'm supposed to be asking here, since they are saying "ITunes
is a Mac app, not a Windows app".

So that is why I posted here.

At any rate, you bring up your music library. Click on View and then,
show duplicates. It will bring up all of your duplicates in the music
library and you can delete them all at once. I don't believe that this
option is available on the Ipod itself so, hopefully, you haven't
transferred your music as yet.

You can try Clone Remover.It will help you find duplicate songs. Search by contents ? files may have different names, but similar content. You can also use filters to search for duplicates of a certain type only. Try it.
