    I was just going through my iTunes library and I noticed that most of the songs in my Recently Played list have been duplicated in my library.

    Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a way to stop it from happening?

    Very strange...

    Are there two separate files (COMMAND-R on a file to show it in Finder) for these tracks or are there just two links in iTunes?

    It's creating a separate file with the same title plus a "1" at the end.

    Could someone have selected the files in your Recently Played list and then converted them from the Advanced Menu? Do the tracks' compression specs match those in iTunes Preferences? How much better is Adelaide than Melbourne?...


    Really.

    I think I might know why now. I burnt an MP3 disc a few weeks ago, some of the songs were a different format so I converted them all to MP3, and it obviously created duplicates. Oops, I guess I just didn't notice them until today. :eek:

    Thanks for your help though. :)

    As for Adelaide being better than Melbourne...I prefer water that isn't yellow. :p ;)

    Mate, you've been studying too hard! Yellow water builds character, and it's good for your immune system.
