    I firewired my itunes library of from my iMac to my macbook and it made duplicates of almost every song. My library is over 2500 songs so it would take forever to trash each one does anyone know of a work around or a way to get rid of all these dupes.
    Please help!
    Thanks

    I think the only way is to manually do it in your library. Hopefully though theres a different (easier) way that I dont know about and someone will tell us. :D

    In the Edit menu, use Show Duplicate Songs and delete the copies?

    Well frick me with a giant wooden spoon. I use iTunes everyday and never knew that was there. Not that I need it that often so Ive never really looked for it. Oh well thats good to know.

    [goes away to make duplicates to test while someone comes round with giant wooden spoon]

    Also, you can arrange to show when songs were added - select the first/second half and delete.

    I think we need to talk about imagery.




    ...and the therapists bill I'll have to pay.

    This one looks like it will cause the minimum of splinters to your delicate frickhole.
