Windows Media Player

Maybe somebody might know the answer to this.
When i listen to my music files,i have quite a lot of elvis albums on there,but for some reason there are some of the mp3,s in there with 4 songs in a row of the same title.
Even after i delete the extra ones today the next time i play them they are back again,hope i explained that ok. Grin

Re: Windows Media Player

It's possible to set WMP to not add files to the library when played through the Options page (Add local media files to library when played). This applies when playing a file manually.
Alternatively, if they are being added automatically (i.e. you aren't selecting them), you probably have the files in a watched folder. In Windows 7 I believe that it's handled by the Windows Explorer libraries, but in previous versions of Windows it is set in Windows Media Player itself. Check that you don't have folders added multiple times.
