    Question duplicate music files showing??

    morning guys...
    ive just brought a My book live duo. Ive copied a cd to this drive but when i go to play a song through my streamer it either has all duplicates of the album songs or just 1 duplicate of a song and the rest are normal?

    When i look at the hard drive music folder everything is showing normal.

    Is this dbpower doing this? if so any ideas

    Many thanks

    It is impossible for dbpoweramp to create duplicates if you are copying single files. For there to be duplicates there has to be the same file in two locations.

    Actually in the next days, we release something called PerfectTUNES de-dup to beta test, this would show if there are duplicate files.

    I have a Cyrus streamline and the n remote always shows duplicate files of the album, other times when i rip a cd its only duplicated the first song in the album. on the remote there is a sub folder in the music folder called FOLDER the other songs are in there but when i go into my book live there is only a shared music folder not any other folders with music files in it.....Im gonna go bold this is driving me nuts.

    Unless you use Multi Encoder, dBpoweramp will only write one audio file per track.

    Right I think I know what the problem is, it's the I'd tagging... For some reason I get all the album downloaded but get one of the songs put in another folder on hard drive. What is the best way to get the I'd tags/ meta data so it transfers the whole album??

    Check your naming value in CD Ripper.

    does the album have different track artists (i.e., at least one track with a different combination of artists). Are you using Album Artist field?

    I'm not sure, will have to check when I get back from work. What changes should I make in cd ripper to keep all the songs in one folder then ?

    use album artist (and/or if it is truly a compilation CD, make sure the compilation box is checked). And then make sure your dynamic naming string is setup to deal with using album artist and/or compilations differently. For example, I use the following dynamic naming string:

    [IFCOMP]Compilations\[album] [IFMULTI] \Disc [disc][]\[track]-[title]-[artist][][IF!COMP][artist]\[album][IFMULTI] \Disc [disc][]\[track]-[title][]

    If batch converter shows the files still (after a restart) then they are still present.

    i am sending the flac files to my NAS drive ( Western Digital my book live duo 4TB) if i go in to the drive it shows..shared music/pictures/videos. once i delete the album/song from it it says folder empty but it is still showing through my streamer?? and pops up in batch converter.
    I am going back to the shop i bought it from and have a look at there system they have the same hard drive and are using dbpoweramp. gotta wait till sat though :8(
