    Anybody have any ideas as to why media player 11 would duplicate the songs in your library? This has happened to me before on another computer so it would lead me to believe the problem was with media player rather than the computer itself? any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    This is my question as well; I've gone and deleted all the duplicates from the library, then using Windows Media Player "Add" function, I've tried to re-add them. But the same issue persists; nearly every single one of my songs is duplicated in the library. This happened before I tried to re-synchronize an iRiver MP3 player - I had thought maybe the MP3 player was causing trouble, since nearly all my music has been on it at one time or another, but that does not appear to be the case.

    I am running Windows Media Player 11.0.5721.5145 on Windows XP SP 2, if that is of any assistance. All of my music is legally purchased and burned from CD's to an external USB Storage Device, and only stored in one location. In the past, I had burned to my Hard Drive, then transferred to the USB drive, but I have experimented with burning directly to the USB drive, with the same effect.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
