Hi Kathleen,.

How can I prevent double or invalid entries to be added to my library when I play music files?

When you move digital media files on your computer, the file name and file path information remain unchanged in your library. Then when you select a file to play to its new location, a new entry is created in your library if you select the option automatically added to your library when played. As a result, your library can quickly contain a large number of entries, duplicate or invalid.

To prevent music files to be automatically added to your library:

1. in Windows Media Player, click the Tools menu, Options.

2. on the Player tab, clear music to add to the library when played check box.

Now, when you play music on your computer or the Internet, the file will not be added automatically to your library.

If you have problems, try these methods and check if it helps.

Method 1: Clear database of Windows Media Player cache files.

a. exit Windows Media Player.
b. press the Windows key + R, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoftand then click OK.

c. Select the Media Player folder, and then delete.

d. restart Windows Media Player.

Method 2: Delete the Windows Media Player database and check.

a. exit Windows Media Player.
b. press the Windows key + R, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media Player, and then click OK.
c. Select all files in the folder, and then click delete on the file menu.
Note: You don't have to remove the folders that are in this folder.
d. restart Windows Media Player.
Note: Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.

Please post back with the results and we will be happy to help you further.

    How can I remove duplicate from ITunes songs

    Way the easiest is to change the view songs and then sort the display by the song title. In this way all the duplicated songs appear together.

    To remove the actual songs you can right click on the song and select REMOVE SONG or you can highlight it and press DELETE on your keyboard.

    Just be careful if you remove songs that are physically on your computer that you have a backup copy somewhere - incase you ever want to restore.
