    When I go to my itunes library in finder, some albums have two of each song.

    One of each has artwork attatched, while the other doesnt.

    I cant remember if these are the albums that ive manually added the artwork to..... maybe thats whats caused the duplicate?

    Anyhow, can I delete on of them without my itunes library?

    Just that, obviously, some albums are taking up twice as much space as they should be.

    Anybody else find this? :eek:

    Yes. I've had many songs with 1 or more extra copies sitting in the same folder.

    I just noticed this the other day while importing some cds. One or Two of the Cds was already in my iTunes as mp3 but I wanted lossless so when I imported the cd Itunes asked if I wanted to replace the existing which I did. Sure enough in finder there is 2 copys of each song... I have no clue what the deal is...:confused:
